According to the Wheeler Cousins book compiled and published in 1984, the parents of Benjamin are Archelaus Wheeler and Mildred (last name unknown).Archelaus and Mildred had 10 children with Benjamin being their 7th child.
The only information about Benjamin is as follows: "Benjamin Wheeler, b. ca 1786-9, VA; married 3 Oct. 1809 Adair Co.,KY to Sarah Barlow, d/o Lewis Barlow. After 1820, moved to Delaware and Shelby Counties IND."

About Mildred(Unknown last name): "born about 1750-1760 probably in VA; died between 1840-1850 in Adair County, KY"
