Birth*7 March 1831Ann Elizabeth Wheeler was born on 7 March 1831, probably in Connecticut, although the Conger Family source reported it took place on Long Island, New York.1
Name VariationAnn Elizabeth was usually called Elizabeth.
Marriage*12 March 1850She married John Newton Conger, son of Uzziah Conger and Hannah West, on 12 March 1850 in Knox County, Illinois.1,2,3
Census US 1850*14 October 1850Ann and John Newton Conger were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 14 October 1850 in Township 10 N 1 E, Knox County, Illinois. He was a farmer and they were both 19. The newly married couple lived with John Newton's brother, Norman Hurd Conger and his wife Mary, who was Elizabeth's sister. Clustered together on the same census page, and apparently living on neighboring farms, were two additional Conger brothers: Crayton Hall Conger and wife Minerva, and Lauren Clark Conger with his wife Amanda and their son Seth. Minerva and Amanda Conger were most likely sisters and their Hasbrook parents also lived on a neighboring farm in the cluster. And then, not too far away, were Mary and Elizabeth's parents, Alvah and Jenotia Wheeler with their family. Two more daughters still living in the Wheeler parents' home would also marry Conger brothers.4
Death*May 1868She died in May 1868 at age 37.1

He directed that all of his children were to live with his wife, Frances Wheeler, who was to have charge and custody of his property during her widowhood to be used for the benefit of all the children.
