Grace was the mother of all his children.  While certain texts have stated that her surname was possibly Wheeler others state that it was Grace Wheeler who m.

I have seen several websites where Susanna Bradford is given as the mother of his children and that is obviously incorrect when comparing their date of marriage to the ages of his children.
