"Mr. C. P. Wheaton.
C. P. Wheaton was born in Clearcreek Township, Warren County, Ohio, February 2, 1841. He attended school at Five Points, where he secured such education as the schools of that day could give, but being a great reader and a close observer, he acquired a fund of information which has served him well in all his business relations.
August 11, 1862, he enlisted in the Union Army, serving throughout the war, or until mustered out, July 17, 1865. Under General George H. Thomas he saw much hard fighting in Tennessee and on November 30, 1864, at Franklin, Tennessee, in that fierce struggle, he was severely wounded by being struck in the right shoulder by a minie ball. As he lay fain from the excessive loss of blood, the Confederates charged, and in passing where he lay, one attempted to stick him with his bayonet, but young Wheaton shot him with a pistol and thus saved his own life. That pistol he still possesses, and prized highly. While being hauled from the field to the hospital, twenty miles away, two of the three others in the ambulance died, and he himself was more dead than alive. In about six weeks he was able to return home on a furlough. In the latter part of the war he saw service under General Schofield, in the east. He was a member of three different regiments, viz.: 79th, 146th and 183d O. V. I. Returning from the war, he again took up the active life of a farmer. In 1869 he was married to Miss Rachel M. Snethen, a native of this county. One son has been born to them. Our subject served one term as Corporation Treasurer of Springboro. in 1890 he was elected Land Appraiser of Clearcreek Township and re-elected in 1900 without opposition, serving with general satisfaction. In 1901 he was elected Treasurer of Warren County, taking charge of the office in September, 1902. He was re-elected without opposition, in 1903. Experience has proven him to be a safe and careful business man, as well as always courteous and genial. He is a member of a number of the secret orders and of the G. A. R. Mr. Wheaton cast his first vote for Abraham Lincoln, while a soldier, and has always since been an active supporter of the Republican Party."
