Following DNA testing it has been shown
that Angel (1739-) and John (1815-1856) have the same ancestor
as Daniel (1814-1898) and so are all part of the Thomas
WHEATON/Ann SPARROW HUNTINGDONSHIRE and CAMBRIDGESHIRE, England
family from which my husband is descended.
families have been linked to those of Robert WHEATON and Alice
BOWEN, or Thomas WHEDON/WHEATON/WHEATON. See below
More will probably be linked to these families as DNA results

And DNA results have shown a match between the DNA of two
(bc 1635 England
- 1691) and MARY ANN SMALL
and a descendant of
WILLIAM WHEATON (c1716-1751) and JOANNA HARE
from Devon, England.(see DEVON WHEATON FAMILIES from DEVON

Following further research it has become even more obvious that
Uriah born 1741 (son of Peter?) and Uriah born 1741 (son of
Uriah and Elinor are the same man, their two families are
identical. They have therefore been amalgamated with notes
added to include information about the confusing concerning
ANGEL (bc 1739-?) and ELIZABETH UNKNOWN
Angel and his wife baptised a son, another Angel
WHEATON, in Wytton in Huntingdonshire in 1764. This Angel's
grandson, William, together with his sons John and Thomas,
went to America in about the 1820s. Other than this
family, all the other WHEATONs in the counties of
Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire up to the end of the
nineteenth century belong to "our" WHEATON family.
Surely Angel WHEATON must be connected to our Thomas in some
way. Any information to assist us would be very
testing it has been shown that Angel, John (below) and
Dennis WHEATON's have a common ancestor. Cheers for
"JOHN (1815-1856) and
We are particularly interested in this Norwalk,
The above mentioned Daniel from Huntingdonshire emigrated
there in 1852, following
"JOHN (1815-1856) and
Sarah CLARKE" from Cambridgeshire who had
arrived there in about 1840. There were many clues
which suggest Daniel and John were related. But we needed
proof! This has now been found and
the the information for John and his descendants is now
included in the family of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW
found on HUNTINGDON and
CAMBRIDGE WHEATONs page.
And then the DNA result of one of John's descendants matched
that of my husband! As did the DNA of one of Angel's
"ROBERT WHEATON (bc
1606 England, probably DEVON-1695/6) and ALICE BOWEN"
Originally details of this family were collected
from a friend, a descendant of the Angel WHEATON mentioned above
whilst we were visiting Michigan.
More information was obtained from web sites.
Some information was sent by descendants of Robert and Alice.
Recently more information was collected from the Root Web's
World Connect Project. I have also collected census
details for the easiest 35 American States. Only 15 more
THERE ARE DIFFERENCES AND PROBLEMS IN THE DETAILS PROVIDED.
ALL INFORMATION SHOULD BE CHECKED WITH ORIGINAL SOURCES
Recent contacts believe that Robert was born in England,
probably Devon. More research is being carried out.
The WHEATON DNA PROJECT should help us sort out some of these
problems, if there are enough contributors!
|I am not able to research your
families in the United States, but if you would like
to send me a file of information I am more than happy
to add your details to the site. A distant cousin
might see it, and I really enjoy putting people who
belong to the same family in touch with each other! This has
happened several times since the site was first established.
