Notes by Kevin Borland ---------------------- 1. This Benjamin Wheeler II is also the son of Benjamin Wheeler and Keziah Murray, and the husband of Ellen Bosley. His relation to George Hartford is unknown.

2. This land lies in German Township, three lots north of the land sold by his brother Nicholas to Jacob Gotschall.

3. Nicholas' land in the previous e-mail was the southeasternmost lot in German Township. When I'm done typing these up, I'll make you all a little map, showing all of the parcels of land I have mentioned, including the land in the Keziah Murray and Benjamin Wheeler wills I previously transcribed.

Notes by Kevin Borland ---------------------- 1. This tract of land is 166 1/2 acres and adjoins the other piece of land he sold to Thomas Wheeler. This land is just south of the land he sold to Thomas.

2. This Caleb Wheeler is most likely the same as his newphew Caleb Wheeler (son of Richard Wheeler and Rachel Bosley). Likely Benjamin's wife Ellen Bosley and Rachel were sisters. I have no proof of this at this time, however.

3. This land was owned by Jasper Cole in 1875.
Benjamin died 1848 in Clay, IN, USA, at 95 years of age.
