Looking for family of my great-great grandfather.
What I know:
Joseph Wheeler was born Fr. Canadian 1862-66. He immigrated to Westborough,
MA (thru Burlington, VT) in May 1846.
He is listed in 1850 census as Joseph Heroux. I do not know where and when he
married. I would estimate it was between 1846-1853. He married Catherine
Kelley (Ireland). His first son William was born in 1853 and William's birth
listing is "William Heroux 2/25/1853 son of Joseph Heroux and Catherine Kelly."
They CHANGED their names around 1853-55 to Wheeler.
Joseph *Heroux* Wheeler's death certificate (8/1904) lists his parents as:
What I do know:
In August of 1896 Joseph went to Canada to visit his "aged father who was 97
That would mean his father (? Clemont Heroux) was born abt 1799. So his
father (?Clemont) was born 1799 approx and died I would suspect sometime between
1896-1900 (if you believe he lived to 100).
I have no other information about Joseph's Canadian family.
Please help. Thank you Kathi
