Does anyone know anything about this couple?Marriage date was 22 May 1809.
I cannot identify them in any census from 1810 onward.No 1810 OH census exists.If they moved from OH that makes the identification difficult, since I don't know where they might have settled.
The only other record I found that is possibly this same Thomas Wheatly is this:
Ancestry.com:Stories & Publications > Military > Roster of Ohio soldiers in the War of 1812
27th US Infantry Regt. (29 Jan 1813)
From Fairfield, Franklin and Delaware Cos. OH & part of Western Reserve, served 1813-14
Capt. George Sanderson.
Since he served in the 1812 war, might this patentee of 160 acres in Knox Co. IL be the same Thomas?
Patentee WHEATLEY, THOMAS,
Warrantee WHEATLEY, THOMAS
Land Office: Illinois
Authority: May 6, 1812: ScripWarrant Act of 1812 (2 Stat. 728)
Document Nr: 1970 Total Acres: 160
Meridian Twp - Rng Aliquots Section County
4th PM - 1815 Illinois 012N - 004E NE¼ 34 Knox
The patent for this Thomas states "private in Capt. Harrisons Comp of the 2nd Regt. of Riflemen."
Thanks for your help.
