Scott Wheeler, son of William H. and Jeannie Retherford Wheeler, was born April 28, 1899 in Liberty Township, Ross County, Ohio. He departed this life at his home near Washington Court House, Ohio, February 4, 1929. He spent most of his boyhood in Ross County moving there with his parents from Highland County. They lived there but a year, then moved to Clinton County where he spent the last seven years of his life. Scott never united with any church, but he was honest, upright, and temperate and his habits and had repeatedly expressed his assurance in Christ. He was remarkably kind in his cheerful disposition, loyalty to friends, and generous devotion to those near and dear to him merited the large measure of love and esteem accorded to him by those who knew him best. For the past year he had been in failing health but through all of his sickness he never complained, always bearing his suffering patiently, hoping that God would spare his to raise his children. He was united in marriage to Catherine Dolph of Martinsville, Ohio, June 18, 1924. To this union there were born two daughters, Reba Jean, age three years of and Virginia Eileen, age 20 months. Those who survives him are his wife, two children, father, mother, two brothers, Lloyd and Hasea, both of Martinsville, Ohio, and one sister, Mrs. William Lee, at home and a brother, Clifford, who preceded him in death, beside the host of relatives and friends by whom he will be sadly missed.  [Scioto Gazette, Chillicothe, Ohio Feb. 11, 1929.
