    Notes 
    • This Seth Wheeler(1756-1828) is not the Capt. Seth Wheeler(1750-1822; son of Jonas), who served under Col. Ethan Allen in 1776, as a Lieutenant (As well as Col Reed's Regt in 1775 as an Ensign and as Capt. under Col. Timothy Bedel in 1778)

    • With his brother Nathaniel, came to Croydon,NH in 1775 settling on the Bartlett farm. (Some suggest that his father came to Croydon the year Seth was born and died here). While serving in the Revolution he married a young lady from Boston. Seth Wheeler (1756-1828) served as private and corporal in 1777-78, in Col. Jonathan Chase's regiment of militia which marched to Ticonderoga from Croydon, NH, were he was born - (Sutton vital records show Seth born in Sutton, possibly the register of birth was made in Sutton and he was indeed born in NH). (D.A.R. Lineage Books, Vol. 70.)
      Seth was a Revolutionary War - his grave is marked with a Cayuga Chapter D. A. R. 1756 - 1828. In 1802, Seth, his wife and ten children moved to Dryden, NY. They came with three horses, a yoke of oxen, and two wagons. After 21 days on the road, they settled near Dryden Springs. Seth was Deacon of the church he help built with his son-in-law, Elisaph Sanford.
