* John Wheat (d. 1711) of Prince George's County, Maryland*

Updated October 23, 2004


Many of the Wheats in this country descend from John Wheat of Prince George's County, Maryland, who died in 1711. My database is especially strong in the descendants his great-great- grandson, Rev. Thomas Wheat. The database was built largely from the Genealogy of the Patterson, Wheat, and Hearn Families (1926) by Rowena Emeline Hearn Randle, who wrote the following profile on p56: "Rev. Thomas Wheat and Family. Methodist. Trask, Grant County, Indiana. Thomas, minister and farmer, was born in Prince George['s] county, Maryland, July 21, 1789. Died March 30, 1860, at Trask, Indiana. Married September 13, 1810, at Painted Post, New York, to Hannah Bonham Patterson, daughter of Benjamine [sic]and Mary Bonham Taggart, daughter of Mary Bonham [other source cites name as Mary Vanderbilt] and Thomas Taggart. Hannah Bonham Patterson was born February 6, 1790. Died February 1, 1848, on their home farm near Brice, Jay county, Indiana. Was buried in the Morehous graveyard three miles east of Portland, Indiana. After settling in Portland in 1837, Thomas Wheat and wife kept hotel on South Meridian street, purchased their farm and in 1844 moved on to this farm."
Rev. Thomas Wheat married Hannah Bonham Patterson on 13 September 1810, possibly at the inn kept by her father Benjamin in Corning, Steuben County, New York. This place has been preserved as the Benjamin Patterson Inn, Corning-Painted Post Historical Society, 59 W. Pulteney St., Corning, NY 14830-2212, (607) 937-5281. Hannah descended from the Boone and Lykins families.

These families are detailed in the Marc Wheat database at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=marcwheat

A good starting point for the Boone family is that of Benjamin Boone, my ancestor and the uncle of Daniel Boone. See http://booneinfo.com/boone/benja.html. Many of our family members appear in databases of the New Sweden colonial Lykins family, including http://edge.edge.net/~uslykins & www.familytreemaker.com/users/l/i/k/Andrew-R-Likins/index. Descendants of this family should encourage scholarship of the New Sweden Colony by joining the Swedish Colonial Society, located at http://libertynet.org/~gencap/scs.html.

Rev. Henry Haeger was the first German Reformed pastor in North America, serving the Germanna Colony of 1714 (see history at http://www.germanna.org/). The Fischback and Rector families are his descendants. See http://www.rootsweb.com/~gumby/cgi-bin/igmget.cgi/n=Oldham?I14874. The Memorial Foundation of the Germanna Colonies in Virginia, Inc. organizes annual family reunions near Culpeper, Virginia the third weekend of July for descendants. I hope to see you there!

Many Wheats descend from these families: Ball, Conway (see Oldham database above) Boone, Lykins, Mason (see http://www.iocc.com/~swright/mason.html), Maugridge (see http://www.booneinfo.com/scroggin/mogridg1.htm), Oldham, Patterson (see www.rootsweb.com/~nysteube/pg10.html), Reynolds (http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/m/a/z/Vicki-R-Mazur/GENE4-0016.html), Taggart, Vanderbilt.

I am also researching Aspy, Becker, Bookout (see http://www.rootsweb.com/~daisy/bookout.htm), Brownson/Brunson, Burlager, Clymer, Fallace, Garver, Heimbach, Karst, Krahlman, Luebbenjans, Morehous, Morris, Mortkamp, Moser, Murphy, Plotner, Rooney, Ruble, Sanders, and Sordlet.

My wife descends from the Anderson, Anthony, Barron, Barton, Bradley, Brothers, Camp, Carney, Carpenter, Clanton, Clement, Cobb, Dean, Deighton, Ewens, Fitzgerald, Garton, Gilstrap, Gilliland, Griffin, Hill, Holland, Hosey, Julian, Lawson, Leak, Marhall, McCarter, McCarthy, Petty, Platt, Quinn, Rhinehardt, Sherwood, Smith, Starling, Stroud, Stubblefield, and Wilson families.
