9615. MOSES WHEELER. Married Dec. 14, 1747, Elizabeth
Holden, of Groton, Mass. The absence of contributing facts and
the great duplication ,of given names make it impossible to de-
termine the parentage of Moses Wheeler, who is referred to at the
time of his marriage at Charlestown, N. H., as " Moses Wheeler of
Holden, late of Lunenburg." He was one of the grantees of Charles-
town under the New Hampshire charter and was elected Highway
Surveyor at the first Town meeting held there Aug. 4, 1753. The
History of Charlestown, N. H., relates of him that he was called
Ensign Moses — as he held that ofiice in Capt. Hobbs Co. He was
in some of the fiercest encounters of the French and Indian Wars.
He was a soldier on the frontier as early as 1746 and was one of the
Company of Capt. Stevens in his celebrated defense of the Fort at
No. 4 from April 4 to 8, 1747. He was also with Hobbs in his ter-
rible encounter with Sackett which has been described as a master-
piece of persevering bravery. One writer says : " If Hobbs's men
had been Romans, they would have been crowned with laurels and
their names would have been transmitted with perpetual honor to
succeeding generations."

He was a very large man, yet of very good proportions, and was



HISTOEY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMEEICA 551

said to have been, in his prime, the strongest man on the frontier.
One time he and five others were detailed to take a cannon to the top
of Hoosac Mountain. It appeared a hard task to his men and they
stood around it discussing how it should be done. At length tiring
of their suggestions he threw out his arms, exclaiming, " Stand aside,
boys, I am going to take this cannon up the mountain myself " ; suit-
ing the action to the words he swung upon his shoulder and bore it
to the place which had been designated, pausing only once for rest
on the way." After this he became quite a hero with the Indians,
who, thereafter, called him " The Strong Man."
