Information from Robert CLINTON 8/3/2005

In 1810 US Census records John R WHEATON was living in New York City.  The household consisted of one free white male, aged 16-44 one free white female aged 26-44, one female 10-15, one female under 10.  In 1820 the same family (apparently) was living in Ward ( of New York City.  The ages then were Male - 45 and over, Females - 45 and over, 26-45 and 16-26, i.e., roughly consistent with what we know of the birthdates (and adjusted for feminine vanity).  In the 1820 census the WHEATON famly entry was immediately following that of George W MURRAY, almost certainly the brother of Elizabeth Murray WHEATON.

 

Another interesting item that I have come across is an entry in the Index to Suit Records, 1804-1813, for the Territory of Orleans (i.e. New Orleans) Superior Court.  This shows that George W MURRAY and John R WHEATON were defendants in a lawsuit in that court, but the exact year is not given in the index.

 

Information from Robert CLINTON 18/4/2005

Earlier this week I received from the New Orleans Public Library a CD containing images of documents relating to a lawsuit in which John R Wheaton, along with his brother-in-law George W Murray were defendants.  The suit was entered in the Superior Court of the Territory of

Orleans in about 1811.  So far I have only gone through the documents once, so merely have a superficial understanding of what happened.  The combination of the old handwriting, the age of the original documents and the legalese make it difficult to decipher, but I will make further effort

to do so.

 

However, what I currently believe to be the facts are:  In 1810 the ship Mexican, alleged to be jointly owned by the firm of Murray & Wheaton and the firm of Winters, Harman, et. al., was due to sail from Hull to New Orleans.  It apparently ran into difficulties - loss of the anchor and chain is mentioned - and thus incurred expenses for repairs and additional crew wages, etc.  The plaintiffs sued Murray & Wheaton for $9,950 and apparently the jury found for the plaintiffs.  Murray & Wheaton then appealed but I have not yet been able to determine what happened on appeal.  It appears that by the time of the suit that the firm of Murray & Wheaton had become insolvent.  In one document John R Wheaton is described as the surviving partner, but I interpret this to mean surviving in a legal sense, in regard to the firm, and not in a mortal sense.  According to my records, George W. Murray lived until 1851.  Murray & Wheaton are described

as merchants and as being from New York.  I doubt that either John R Wheaton or George W Murray ever went to New Orleans - they were simply represented by attorneys.  The basis for their appeal appears to be contention over whether they in fact were owners of the vessel at the time of the problem, but I have yet to work this out.

 

Notes for Elizabeth MURRAY:

Information from Rosie WEBB 22/7/2001

"This is quite possible as some of Elizabeth's siblings were early settlers in North America and Canada.  Which means that it is also possible that Eliz Ives and Sarah Mary Anne were the only children born to them.  As Elizabeth Murray's family were in Norwich, it is also possible for the children to have been born there.  It is mentioned in the book about Anne Murray POWELL that quite a number of "visits" were made to England by various members of the family (especially when things got tough in the "colonies")
