Re: William Wheeler
In Response To: Re: William Wheeler ()

Could he have been from Sunflower, MS Not AL? There isn't a Willie or William Wheeler living in Sunflower, AL, or anywhere else in Washington County, in any of the census records after 1880. There was a Willie Wheeler born ca. 1896/7 who lived in Sunflower County, MS. Also, I doubt the Willie born in 1909 is your great-great grandfather; he would only have been 8 years old when Jesse was born in 1917.
