Wisel - Wheeler Bible
Posted by: mari (ID *****5139) Date: March 09, 2012 at 21:36:41
  of 34

Wisel family descending from Julia (Read) Wisel and David Wisel could benefit from the information found in the Wisel - Wheeler Bible in possession of a second cousin of mine.

According to an included 1955 letter inserted in Bible by Frank A. Wheeler who is a great grandson of David and Julia(Read)Wisel the Bible was purchased in 1836 by Julia Wisel and given to her son Orin Wisel on his 21st birthday. The Bible survived a flood around the time of Civil War and my guess that it was the Wisel Creek Flood. The Bible was given to Frank A. Wheeler from his mother Celestia Jane (Wisel) Wheeler who is the only daughter among 6 brothers of Orin Wisel and his wife Elizabeth Colwell.

Below is all the transcribed family information found in the Bible. Anytime there was a question of dates a slash is placed between the two possible dates.
