Susan A. Wheeler, Crosby H. Wheeler & Emily C. Wheeler, Missionaries to Armenia

Susan Anna Wheeler, Author. Mrs. Wheeler and her husband Crosby H. Wheeler, and her daughter Emily C. Wheeler were missionaries in Armenia from 1857 - 1905. They were instrumental in the creation of, as well as professors at Euphrates College in Harpoot. I am researching this family because of their influence on the lives of Samuel and Almas Sakaian, the latter a 1915 survivor of a 65 day caravan march from Aghin (Northern Euphrates to Aleppo). The following photograph are from Mrs. Wheeler book, Missions in Eden: Glimpses of Life in Valley of the Euphrates.
