Hi Nora,
I found Joseph and Matilda on the Pacific Northwest Necrology Family Tree on Ancestry. I asked the owner to contact you.

I also found this family on the Goossens Leaves Family Tree and asked the owner to contact you. The most interesting item on that family tree is that Joseph was married before he married Matilda.

He married Florence Rye b. 10 Jan 1856, Greenup Co., Kentucky and she died 20 May 1886, Cattetsburg, KY. They were married Oct 9, 1873 and they had seven children.

Joseph Russell Wheeler was b. 20 May 1850 Guyandotte, West Virginia. In 1880 he was living in Lebanon, Laclede, Missouri. On 20 July 1889 he married Matilda Wilson in Cattlesburg, Boyd Co., KY.

Remember that any info from another person's family tree should be confirmed by another source.

In 1900 Joseph and family were living in Magisterial District 4, Carter Co., KY.

In 1910 Ernest V. Wheeler was living in Columbia, Chelan Co., WA. He was a boarder with the Tucker family, b. VA, abt. 1892, both parents born KY. [Most of this census is illegible.]
