General Notes: Husband - Edwin Ruthven Wheelock


When he was three years of age his parents removed to Pennsylvania, settling on a farm three miles north of Corry, Erie County, and there he spent his boyhood days. He was educated in the schools of the neighborhood, and later went to Waterford, Pennsylvania, where he attended the State Academy, having for his classmates many who later became prominent in the history of Waterford. At the age of sixteen years he left the old home and took up his residence in Freehold township, Warren County, locating at Wrightsville, where he became identified with the lumber industries. He boated on the river, and was successful in his various undertakings. He made his home in Freehold township until about 1871, when he moved to the village of Sugar Grove and there erected a store, embarking in the general hardware business and later admitting his sons as partners, conducting for many years a successful and remunerative business. He was one of the influential and active citizens of Sugar Grove, his residence on Main street being one of the best and most attractive. He retired from active pursuits in 1904 and then went to Decatur, Illinois, where he resided with a son, but almost every year he paid a visit to Sugar Grove, where he was a most welcome guest. He was reared in the Methodist Episcopal faith, and was a Republican in politics, active in the affairs of his party, serving as county commissioner two terms, burgess of the borough of Sugar Grove one term, and served for many years as councilman and school director.
