JOHN WHEELER, youngest son of Col. Nathaniel Wheeler, was born July 1, 1818. He had a clear intellect and scholarly turn of mind, but died young. Once taking a decided dislike to a dissipated, ugly Captain, on board whose ship he had embarked for his health, he ran away and spent a long time on the Island of Juan Fernandez, subsisting as he could, and with Selkirk immortal could say, ” I am monarch of all I survey.”
