  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 1, 1891 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek, New York - Hiram Wheeler, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of the town of Ellisburgh, died at the residence of his son-in-law, William Balch, the 23d inst, in the 87th year of his age. He was the son of Aaron and Sally Wheeler, and was born April 6, 1804, in Galway, then Saratoga, now Fulton County, New York. When about 22 he came with his parents and settled in the southeast part of the town of Ellisburgh which was at that time a dense wilderness. He helped clear the farm on which he died. At the age of 24 he was married to Miss Polly Hill, who survives him. Had he lived until the 24th of January they would have been married 63 years. To them were born one son, James A., of Horseheads, New York, and two daughters, Mrs. William Balch and Mrs. Ira Balch, both of Mannsville, New York. Nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren are living. One death only had occurred in his family and that of a grandson, little Ronald W., son of Melvin and Nellie Balch, who died ’the 23d of May last, just seven months before the death of great-grandfather. He was converted in early life and united with the Methodist Episcopal church. He was a member of the first Methodist class formed in Mannsville and in this church his membership remained to the day of his death. He was the first man to organize a Sunday school in this village. He helped cut and hew the timber for the first Methodist church in Mannsville. He held for many years and at different times the office of Sunday school superintendent, class leader and steward. He lived well. He died in the Lord. He rests from his labor. His works follow him.
