I have two different Royal Wheeler in my family tree, I would need to know
what dates you are looking for. These wheelers are from Hancock, NY just
across the border from Wayne County. I have one born 1800 and died 1830 the
other one was born 1779 I do have Ebenezer married to Margaret LaBarre.

> Ebenezer F. Wheeler (Civil War vet): April 1909 Beachlake Cemetery, Berlin
> Martha Harriet Wheeler Fletcher: May 1887 Hine Cemetery (Orson), Preston

>>Yes, the Wayne County Historical Society has a map with cemetery locations

>>Hine (Orson): Lucy Wheeler Hubbard, 28 Apr. 1836-31 Dec. 1919
