In regard to the marriage of Giles to Fallura Wheeler, I believe this may be the same man, that
she either died or he left her and went to New York (where he married Emily Owen). Leaving is
something he seemed to be in the habit of doing, or maybe the women left him. If this is the same
Giles, he would have been married 4 times, so far. Fallura being the first followed by
Emily(abt. 1849) she died in 1873/4, then Mary Jane (married in 1878 she was 32) who according to
family stories, couldn't live with his drinking so she left him and dropped the kid(s) off at an orphange
and left, then he married a Margaret Carson in NJ (1896) but was unmarried in 1899.
I did find reference to Fallura Wheeler Barton married to Giles Barton on ancestry.com, they are
listed in the Wheeler genealogy book written in 1914. There is no further reference to Fallura Barton.
She would certainly be an avenue in which to search for additional information.
Thank you very much for the assistance. This is definitely a "genealogical puzzle" that I hope to
find the missing pieces. My greatgrandmother was the child that was dropped off at the orphanage
and she didn't talk much about her family. So having found this much so far is more than I expected
to find. She never mentioned who her parents were, I was fortunate enough to be assisted by a Barto
researcher, who found the family listed in the PA census. Giles was listed as Barton or Bartow in the
WI census. Barto in PA. The name changes make the search a little more difficult.
