Wheatman, Henry — Family

(Roger Wheatman)

In 1854 five young Englishmen from the farming area of Lincolnshire, England, came to the United States. They came to the Midwest and settled on plots of land between Decorah and Calmar, IA. These young men were to become the founders of the Wheatman, Vine, Yarwood and Pickford families in this area. Henry Wheatman was one of these men and he homesteaded some land in the northeast corner of Calmar Twp. about 5 miles south of Decorah. In 1857, after getting his farm established, he sent back to England for his bride. He met Maria Daniels in New York State and they were married at South Alabama, Genesee Co., New York on 2 Aug 1857.
