Saw your posting re the book.
I am serching any info on the Benjamin C. Wheelock family in Douglas, WY
I believe he is buried in the Douglas Park Cemetery. He was born 1826 and died 1909. He was an enrollee from Brookfield, MA into the civil war. He married Jane Donahue of MA and had 5 children. Jane did not travel to WY with Ben but 2 of his sons did.......Ben E. Wheelock, born 1853 and Frank J. born 1867. Frank later changed his name to Franklin Boyd and maybe moved to Montana.
Ben E. married Maggie Aufrance who owned the Green House in Douglas.
Any reference to this family would be greatly appreaciated, Kelly as we know little of his historic life in WY.
