5th February 2014.
Seven years later the following still applies.  Over the years I have received a considerable amount of information about Canadian WHEATONs, but the queries still remain,

12th April 2007
Thomas WHEATON and Abigail FILLMORE replaced by James WHEATON (1738-1809), the individual in the previous generation, and his descendants.

The information which has been sent to me about CANADIAN WHEATONS is confusing. The details I have included on the website need to be checked because I have received conflicting data about some individuals from different researchers.  Some New Brunswick researchers are obviously working from original records but from this side of the Atlantic there is no way in which I can access such sources to ascertain which details are correct.

Because of my concern that I was including inaccurate information here I had planned to delete all references to the above families, but then I was sent details of another twig, so I feel that if I leave the information on the website, with this warning, perhaps something can be sorted out.

The research being undertaken by members of the "CANADIAN WHEATONs" (about 25 researchers in all) continues as there is still much to discover.  Many people are working on these families in an endeavour to clarify the details.  Therefore, if you know we have it wrong, please write. We need your help!
