Milton Paradise Wheat (Pg. 5, Row 1) owned 6 slaves according to the
1850 census schedule. Simon Lester was probably born about 1828 and
would have been age 22 in 1850. The only Black, male listed in the
schedule, is given the age of 27 so Simon Lester may not have been owned
by Wheat at this time.
