Ollie Essie Wheeler’s parents were Amos Asburry/Ashburry Wheeler and Emma Elizabeth (Boyd) Wheeler/Dosier.
Father:Amos Asburry/Ashburry Wheeler** b. 9-2-1872 WV. D. 1-5-1903 Oklahoma Territory, OK., buried Oakwood Cemetery, Honey Grove, Fannin Co., TX.**Note:1.) I don’t know if Amos’ surname was actually Wheeler.He used the name Wheeler.He was listed as Asbury A. Wheeler (stepson) in the 1880 Braxton Co., WV. household of Joseph S. Wheeler and wife Samantha (McCauley) Wheeler.Possibly the census taker made a mistake in this listing and Amos was actually their son or he was adopted by Joseph when he and Samantha married.I don’t know for sure as I haven’t found a marriage record for Joseph and Samantha yet.
Joseph S. Wheeler b. March 1851 VA. (now Braxton Co., WV.) d. 8-16-1928 in Weatherford, Parker Co., TX.He married Samantha McCauley prob. in Braxton Co., WV. bef. 1878.Samantha b. 1-6-1855 VA. d. 8-20-1899 in Lamar Co., TX., buried at Dickey Cemetery, Lamar Co., TX.
1.) William H. Wheeler b. 11-18-1878 Braxton Co., WV. d. 9-7-1890 Lamar Co., TX., buried Dickey Cemetery, Lamar Co., TX.
2.) Olive V. "Ollie" Wheeler b. 9-14-1881 Braxton Co., WV. d. 11-22-1963 Santa Clara Co., CA., buried City Greenwood Cemetery, Weatherford, Parker Co., TX.--MarriedCharles Edward Ames in Lamar Co., TX. 8-14-1898.Charles b. 1-16-1876 Neosho, Newton Co., MO. d. 6-1-1954 Weatherford, Parker Co., TX., buried City Greenwood Cemetery, Weatherford, Parker Co., TX. I think Ollie's middle name was Virtrilla as she had a daughter named Ollie Virtrilla (Ames) McHone.
Mother:Emma Elizabeth Boyd b. February 1879 TX. d. 1957.
Amos and Emma married 10-22-1893 in Paris, Lamar Co., TX.(Lamar Co., TX. Marriage Records, 1841 - 1910, Lamar Co., TX. Genealogical Society.Groom's name listed as Amos A. Wheeler.Bride's name listed under adopted name Emma Scruggs). They lived in Honey Grove, TX. where Emma’s adoptive parents William M. Scruggs and wife Eva resided.When Amos was killed in Okla. Terr. His body was brought back and for burial.
Emma then married 2nd husband Charles C. Dosier bef. 1909 in TX.Charles was born ca. 1866 in TN. and died 1911 in TX.He is buried at Allen’s Point Cemetery, North of Honey Grove, Fannin Co., TX.Emma was Charles' 2nd wife (Charles married 1st wife Sarah I. Dennis in Lamar Co., TX. 10-25-1888 and had 3 children by her --George, Lillian and Effie).
I lost track of Emma after 1910 census and don't know what happened to Estelle Dosier, the child she had with Charles. Lillian Dosier was in Honey Grove, Fannin Co., TX. in 1920, then in Dallas, Dallas Co., TX.George Dosier was also in Dallas, Dallas Co., TX. ca. 1917.
Emma Elizabeth Boyd was the adopted child of William M. Scruggs and wife Eva Eliza (maiden name unknown).Emma's mother died either during childbirth or shortly after and her father gave permission for Emma to be adopted by William and Eva who were childless.Other siblings tentatively identified as George Boyd, Paralee Boyd and Ollie Boyd.I believe Paralee Boyd married Charles Powell in Lamar Co., TX. 1-10-1886; George Boyd married Ella Hodger in Lamar Co., TX 3-27-1900 and Ollie Boyd married Jim Garnett in Lamar Co., TX. 1-25-1901.
