THEMABiographie von George Washington Wheland
TEXTGeorge Washington Wheland is one of the solid citizens who have made Chattanooga the city she is. Actively and success fully engaged in manufacturing, he has done much to build up our material interests, while by his personal life he has set a good example to his contemporaries and to those who shall come after us. He was born, 15 August, 1843, in Center County, Pennsylvania, and was raised on a farm in Hancock County, Ohio, receiving a common school education. He served thru the Civil War in the One Hundred and Eighteenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and has ever since been in the machine and foundry business. He came to Chattanooga from Athens, Tenn., in 1874. He is president of the Wheland Machine Works, vice-president of the Chattanooga Plow Company, and one of the principal stockholders of the Chattanooga Machinery Company. These facts alone indicate how large a factor he has been in our industrial progress. Mr. Wheland was on the first police commission of Chattanooga. He is a member of the First Methodist Church, of this city. On October 9, 1872, he married at Grand Haven, Mich., Miss Emily L. Winsor, who died, 12 February, 1895. There are two children of the marriage, Z. W. Wheland and E. F. Wheland. On 20 November, 1901, Mr. Wheland married, at Hagerstown, Ind., Mrs. Sara J. Greenleaf. He is still in full business activity, with, probably, many years of active usefulness yet before him.
