Re: Reuben Jacqueway Wheatley
I discovered your message while rooting around looking for Wheatley Info.If Isaac L. Wheatley was in the CW, my GGGF was James Edward Wheatley, whose father was Isaac John Wheatley b. pre 1790.
Family Stories are that there were 3 brothers (James E. plus 2 others) who came to the US and then split up. James E. became a citizen because he served 3 years in the Conn. 7th Regt.Supposedly he fought against a brother at a battle called Yellow Lantern. (The 3rd one went West???)There was a battle at Yellow Tavern, but I have never proven a link.
I'm looking for either of the brothers and wondered if your Isaac L. could be the one.
Isaac John I believe did have a son Isaac George b. 1838 in London.
If you reply be sure it comes to my e-mail address.I may not be able to find my way back here, or at least add the URL.Thanks.
