George Johnson I was somewhat surprised to find the 1880 United States Census listing my maternal Grandfather as George E. Wheeler, age 2. I was surprised because I had always known him by the surname of Jackson. The Census also listed my Grandfather's brother as Thomas J. Wheeler, age 3. Further investigation revealed that their father was a man who was referred to as, "Old Tom Wheeler" the pack peddlar. The 1880 Census for Ross County, Liberty Township, Ohio listed a Thomas J. Wheeler, age 48, occupation, "Huckster". One of the definitions of Huckster is "Peddlar". My Grandfather and his brother were a out of wedlock issue. I believe the old "Pack Peddlar's" full name was Thomas Jefferson Wheeler. I do believe I found my Great Grandfather. The area was right, the occupation was right and I had been told that my Great Uncle Thomas Jefferson Wheeler was named for his father. I never knew why my Grandfather and his brother later rejected the Wheeler surname and assumed the surname of their mother. I suppose the out of wedlock issued was the reason. George L. Johnson
