We know about Beriah Wheeler from a letter he wrote on December 26, 1833, from Jamaica, VT to his son Lyman Wheeler (Barbara's g-g-grandfather), who was then residing in Hannibal, NY. Lyman was staying with his older brother Henry who had moved to Hannibal, NY. By the time the letter arrived, Lyman had moved on to Buffalo, NY, where he was engaged in the business of selling books. We also know about Beriah Wheeler from his sworn testimony when he applied for Revolutionary War pension.
The original of Beriah's letter to Lyman is located in the public library in Toledo, OH. We actually saw the original letter!
The copy of Beriah's Revolutionary War Pension application was obtained from the National Archives.
