Comments: James B. Wheeler (Nee: ) | OKC OK United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: 1889 photo of men, from SLC library book, The Story of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, by W.F. Kerr and Ina Gainer: James B. Wheeler, representative of Michigan, is in the front row 2nd from right with a white beard. He was born 1830 in New York, according to censuses, and it appears he died before 1900 census, because his wife, Ida I., is living with their son in Washington state as a widow in 1900. In 1870 the family is at Gratiot Co., MI.
These men in this photo were representatives of the states on a committee selected at the mass meeting in Oklahoma City to survey and lay off the city into lots and blocks, streets and alleys.
