Welcome to Wheeling Island ...
Although we found mention of Wheeling Island during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Wheeling Island was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
While we are confident that Wheeling Island was located in Ohio County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
