More about JOHN A. WHEELER,
I have a newspaper clipping from an unknown source but it could be the local paper in Adair County.
It states that John A. Wheeler had a large database on the Wheeler Family Genealogy.

Here is a excerpt from the newspaper clipping:

John A. Wheeler, b. September 25, 1924. Had a record of marriage bond dated December 31, 1879 for
John B. Wheeler and Mary Heneger.

Note: If this is JOHN B. WHEELER (ARCHELAUS2, ARCHELAUS1) was born 1826, and died July 07, 1901.  He married EMILY WILSON November 11, 1847 in Adair Co., KY.  She was born February 22, 1832, and died February 23, 1904. the time frame is not likely that he could have had a second marriage.

It states that John A. Wheeler, b. September 25, 1924. ggg grandfather was John Henry Wheeler. From Virginia
and settled in the Breeding-Sparksville area.

Note: This statement raises a question about John Henry Wheeler from Virginia, if John A Wheeler is correct then where is all of John Henry Wheeler, family are they in Adair County or other parts unknown?
Is not ARCHELAUS WHEELER II his ggg grandfather? It appears to me that cousin John A. Wheeler must have been in error at
this point. I will go with Archelaus Wheeler II until it is more inclusive. If anyone has more information on this family please send it to Webmaster Carlis B.Wilson

John A. Wheeler, b. September 25, 1924. Attended the Independent Ridge School or as it use to be called McKinney Ridge. He refers to Olie Rowe and Annie Sharp as his teachers.
John A. Wheeler, retired from the Brown and Williamson Tobacco Co. in Louisville KY.
