Remembering Jay Wheeler: He was a great uncle

About: Obituary: Jay Wheeler, 80, Adair Co., KY


Jay Wheeler was my great-uncle. Carlis Wilson was my father. Jay's sister Blanche, who was my grandma, was a Rowe, but later married a Snead and that was her name when she died. For those who do genealogy it might be nice if the obituary had the information on-line. My dad was big into genealogy and I am sure would have suggested I send this. He truly loved your magazine and sometimes I pull up his articles to reminisce. Thanks so much.

s/Debbie Wilson Bertram
