(Son) Will16 January 1851His father, Micajah E. Wheeler, prepared his will dated 16 January 1851 in Barren County, Kentucky, naming his wife, Frances Wheeler, and providing for his children, born and unborn, although none were named.

Micajah's primary directive was that all of his estate, both real and personal, be divided equally between his children, by both of his wives, including all that may be born to him after the preparation of his will. 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. He directed that his estate was not to be divided until the youngest living child became of age.

He did not want his gray horse or roan mare to be sold, nor one young yoke of steers, cows and heifers, hogs and sheep. He directed that all his farming tools and personal property that could be spared, be sold to pay his debts. His tobacco was to be priced and freighted by H. P. Curd, and he wanted the transaction details, for the land he had recently sold to Obadiah Britt Sr., to be completed. He wanted Joseph Renfro to act as the Executor and Cestui que trust of his estate.

His will was signed and sealed by the X mark of M. E. Wheeler on 16 January 1851, and witnessed by John T. Rogers, John J. Curd and George M. Page, to the attention of: Travis Cockrill.3,4,5
(Son) Deathbefore 17 February 1851He was about 4 years old when his father died before 17 February 1851 in Barren County, Kentucky, the date his estate was opened for probate. He would have been about age 44 and left his widow with eleven children, and one yet unborn.6,3

We hope what we have selected to include was originally obtained from family Bible records, or other reliable sources, and is accurate. Although, even when we have found contributed information to be unreliable, inaccurate or incomplete, we consider the information useful as possible clues as we research, viewed online on 24 September 2021 at https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/LTTY-XSP.
