back Trouble for Judah next
“…In 1762 Judah Wheeler was jailed for non-payment of taxes to the Town of Westford, and was ordered to leave that Town for good.”1 This warrant2 would seem to reflect the same episode, although it makes no mention of Westford.

If I have in mind the right Judah and the right Sam(p)son (our 7GU, brother of Oliver I) the offender and the custodial officer were first cousins, grandsons of our 8GGP Abraham and Tabitha Wheeler.
