Hi Lisa, I just joined the Wheeler Name Study and saw your post asking for help cleaning up profiles. This is my first ONS group so I'm still learning about it but what can I do to help you with Wheelers?

Hi Lisa,

I’ve not heard back from you so presume you don’t want to continue in the Canada Project at this time so have gone ahead and removed your badge. If that changes anytime you would be most welcome to re-join in the future.

Thank you Lisa. I enjoyed the 2018 Source-a-Thon, and hope my enteries assisted the team. I am guessing that as the years go on it has become a bit harder for me to stay up for so many hours straight. Had to take a few more breaks than I use too, and then my wife turned off the alarm on me one time, and i kept sleeping! Looking forward to next year. Virgil

Hi Lisa,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,

Hi Lisa,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).

About Benjamin Stanley. What kind of changes would have to be made to make these two:

Worthy of a merge? They are both clearly the same person. Same birth years. I think the fathers would have to be merged. Stanley and Standley are interchangeable on the records.

Not sure how they can be merged but it looks like they're the same.

Based on your maiden name being Kelsey and the fact that you were cleaning up Kelsey files, I thought that we might be not too distant relations through my husband who's great-grandmother married a Kelsey. Using the relationship finder I found that it thinks you may be 15th cousins 3X removed to my husband and 12th cousins 1x removed from me -- neither based on a Kelsey line, which I thought was interesting. Is there a way to tell the Relationship Finder to look through a Kelsey line for a relationship?

It's unfortunate that the Wheeler Genealogy text has no index of references so everything has to be checked further/confirmed. You might want to see this website: as it has many, but not all, of the various Mass town VR through about 1850. It's a handy way to check dates/locations etc.

If you are interested in this profile, please check out the One Name Studies Project! [[ Category: {{{name}}} Name Study ]]" in the results

Hi Lisa.

Thanks for adding to our collective family tree.

I see that you have created a profile, Daughter Spring (Spring-336). Please be sure, when entering a person whose name is not known, to use "Unknown" rather than any other variations. Here is some information on correct name usage on WikiTree:

Thanks and have fun!

Thank you, Lisa! I'm slowly working on building a tree on here with the information I have, but still have lots of research to do! Your help is always appreciated.

Thanks for fixing it!

Hi Lisa, close, but not me :)

The name is surprisingly fairly common, but my branch is an obscure German immigrant one from ~1850s Indiana.

You will probably find that your Steven Mix is from the much more common English descendants of Thomas Mix, a well-known Puritan immigrant to Connecticut Colony in the 1600s. His descendant lineage accounts for nearly every Mix I have ever found in the U.S. His family is now pretty well built up on WikiTree.

There was a famous Steve Mix who played for the 76ers in the 1970s who is also not me :)

After his pro career he became a sports broadcaster in Philly. I have not yet been able to find his tree, but I have tried. Not in the past few years, though, so maybe he is online in a tree now.

Hi Lisa! (my fellow obsession-ite!) ;-)

I ran across your Wheeler family when I was doing the research on Vice President William Almon Wheeler. I don't know if you have run across this invaluable resource, but I wanted to give you a link for The Genealogical and Encyclopedic History of the Wheeler Family in America, by A.G. Wheeler. So far, I haven't found any inaccuracies, so you might find it helpful in your research.

All my best! - Alison ;-)

Thanks for answering me promptly. It sounds like an interesting and fun project.

I have a line of the Wheelers in my part of the tree. I was asked by someone with another line in her tree to see if we could work together (she gave me what info she had) and knows of another person in with one also. I am working on seeing if any of these branches match up, as well as trying to get all the Wheelers properly listed and profiles cleaned up.

My plans are to work mostly on the Wheelers right now and the only additional orphaned profiles I will be taking on are the ones attached to the Wheelers that I have.

Thank you for the advice and suggestions Becky and Maggie, I welcome help and advice whenever I can get it and am appreciative.

Lisa, It looks like you have been making a great number of contributions. Thank you. We have also noted that you have adopted about 400 profiles. Please try to develop these profiles before you take on more work. We really appreciate all you efforts in building the world family tree.

Hi Lisa, it looks like you do have a big heart and adopted all the Wheelers .

Are you doing a One Name Study ? Or do you plan to merges all the extras and improve the profiles ?

Please let us know your plans and THANKS for improving the profiles . You have 4057 profiles so please improve these Wheelings before you adopt more (-:

I do this all the time ; still working on the ones in my watchlist .

Hello Lisa, I have read on the Roll of Honor page that you are interested in information on POWs. My Great Uncle Louis E. Moore (Moore-17354) was a POW at Oflag-64 in Szubin Poland and at Stalag III-A in Lukenwalde GE from 1944 to 1945. He was a Lieutenant in the 1st Armored Division and was captured in June 1944 in Italy. This is the extent of the information I have on him and if you have any resources I might be able to look at I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you. Bryan Moore.

Hi, Lisa I looked at the book "Ezra Thompson Clark's Ancestor and Descendants" 2nd Edition published 1995 which is available at, The names Mary Hyanno and William Cornwell are not even in the index. Did you read the article in the "Middler" linked to on Wm Cornwell's profile disproving the Indian Princess story? Agree that Bull is not 2nd wife's LNAB, looks like this got attached during a merge. On my list to revisit and reedit. Thanks. Dan
