Notes by Kevin Borland
1. This Nicholas Wheeler is the son of Benjamin Wheeler and Keziah Murray,
and the husband of Drucilla.
His relation to Jacob Gotschall is unknown, but his nephew Mordecai Wheeler
II (husband of another Keziah Murray) had a daughter Rezin Gotschall.
2. This land was part of the land left to him by his father Benjamin
Wheeler in his will in 1807.
3. The handwriting on this document is attrocious and I may have made a few
mistakes, but the important parts are OK.
Nicholas married Drucilla about 1772 in Greene, , Pennsylvania.1
