The following written by Doris Wheeler
Gallison of Woodbury, VT:
Mrs. Alma Leonard's records say Henry was a farmer and lived about
one mile from the Robinson Cemetary in the Maple Corners, Kent Corners
area of Calais Vermont. Adeline's ancestry runs back in Calais and
further back to the first Ainsworth arrival in America. Ainsworth
genealogy written manyyears ago shows her as daughter of Fordis;
grandaughter of Parley and great-grand-daughter of Jacob, whose house
still stands in the Pekin section of Calais.
Henry and Adeline had eight children, all apparently born in Calais. I
(Doris) searched Woodbury, VT vital records c. 1837 to 1903 and found
no recorded births of children born to them. Only mention of the two
children, Charles and Amanda who married Woodbury residents. No
official document has been found that indicates when Henry and Adeline
moved to East Woodbury. However The Washington County Gazateer and
Directory 1783-1889 lists the following: Woodbury - Wheeler, Henry H.
(lower Cabot address) rd. 44; 10 cows; farmer; 100 acres; leases 100
of Horace Burnham.
Claribell Gallison of Plainfield, VT possesses a scrapbook compiled
by Elsie Mann Smith. In the book I (Doris) found a newspaper clipping
- June 20, 1901 - L.H. Goodell Woodbury) is building a new house for
I remember my father (Raymond) telling about his uncle's West and
Parley building a new house for their parents and doing some of the
work themselves. He said it was a very nice looking house but everyone
wondered why they built it where the barns cut off the beautiful view
of the mountains.

"April, 1908 - Henry Wheeler of Woodbury was watering a cow in the
manger; she raised her head and he was struck in the eye by her horn.
It is feared he has lost the sight of it. He was taken to the
