Wheeler, Freeman P., Alden, was born in Michigan, October 23, 1871, and is a son of Henry M. and Emma B. Wheeler.
His father died in 1875 and Mrs. Wheeler then decided to return to Alden, her former home, where she settled with
her three children. Freeman P. Wheeler was educated in the Alden Union School, and after completing his course
became identified with the Ideal Furniture Company of Buffalo and continued several years in that line of trade.
In the mean time he had taken a keen interest in political affairs, having cast his fortunes with those of the
Democratic party. This prominence, together with the esteem in which he was held by his fellowtownsmen. made him
the first choice among them for postmaster in Alden when the Democratic administration assumed control in 1895.
Consequently, early in 1895 he was appointed to that place and assumed the office on the first of April of that
year. In 1895 he married Zada, daughter of George E. and Sarah E. Martin of Alden, and they have one son, Norman.
