How did Ben Wheeler, Texas get its name?

Ben Wheeler was an outlaw. Nobody knows his real last name. The Wheeler name came from the last woman he "legally" married. When the law finally caught up with him, they hung him on the spot. They left him hanging in only his underwear. A sign was posted with his list of crimes, his name and the word Texas. His hanging body became a landmark for travelers. When people settled nearby, directions to their spreads included, find Ben Wheeler in Texas. - P. Wheeler
