Again, thanks very much. I had the info you sent. The entry in the Debean Marriage Records is unproven. I wrote to the Dibean site asking if an entry they were showing for Jevilla Gates marrying Thomas J. Whalen could be Irvilla Gates marrying Thomas J. Wheeler. The date matched what is shown in Albert Gatlin's book, The Wheelers in America. The Dibeans entered my question as an actual marriage record. While we think this Jevilla has to be Irvilla, we have no positive proof.
What I'm trying to find are the parents of Irvilla Gates. We have much info on the family from her down, but would like to find her parents and grandparents.
