Hello! Through the Hannal Sewall Line as in LDS and an old established proven line that was well known to be accurate by the descendants of this Hannah Sewall that married into the Wheeler line of Moses and John Wheeler of Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, on to New York, c. 1800 and Ohio and then to parts unknown by 1850 with one only known descendant to Texas, Judge Royall Tyler Wheeler, others back to Ohio, on to Iowa??, California and the family some of which are in Utah, Mormons, who refuse to release information, ...we are descendended from the Storrs of Barnstable, Connecticutt.
A woman, elderly questioned the line on the Ohio Rootsweb, and I was attacked by some silly, immature, vicious people for being a Southerner and American in the Northern Hemisphere since 1530, Sir Charles Wheeler (all Wheelers are related) and said this Hannah Sewall could not exist, and so, obviously, people it's the old Puritan custom of sending the teenage girl to distant relatives, but always to relatives, and so, I'm still in that line, some way or another. And so, everyone hang in there! Glad, someone is reading these inquiries and responding and don't give up. Try to put into data bases every piece of information and history that you can, so someday, somewhere, inspite of church fires, we may know a little more.

Happy New Year! Elaine Eure Henderson
