Jeff. Co., NY Wills, Vol. 4, p. 13.
NOTE: The will named Mercy Earl as the mother of Wheaton's wife, Alcena. However, he then mentions a document written by Mercy Earl and Danford Earl, his father. It seems likely that it was a transcription error in the will and that Mercy Earl was the mother of Wheaton.
