He was buried in Paris Cemetery, Bourbon Co., KY.21 Volney Wheat became one of the leading physicians in Paris and the surrounding countryside. Quoting from Norman Wood, a grandson of Jahab Wheat, a brother of Volney: "Dr. Volney Wheat ...as fine an old school gentleman and country physician as there was in the Blue Grass Region. He had numerous babies named for him and the longest funeral procession that ever entered the Paris Cemetery. I was there and I know."
The records of Transylvania College show that Volney G. Wheat of Paris, KY was a student in the graduate school of Transylvania Medical College during the year 1839-1840. Where he obtained his previous medical education is not known, but probably by means of tutelage. Further research may reveal this information.
Transylvania Medical College at that time was one of the two outstanding medical schools in the country -- the other being the Medical College of the University of Pennsylvania located in Philadelphia.
Dr. Wheat was always much interested in education. He was a contributor to the fund for the establishment of the Kentucky Agricultural College which later became the University of Kentucky. In his will he stated that it was his desire that each of his children should receive "an English education".
