John Willson - I'd like to exchange info
with anyone researching the family of
John Willson, 1771-1843. John was born in
Hardwick, N.J., U.S.A. He married Rachel
Drake in about 1794. They came to live at
Ancaster in Wentworth Co., Ontario, Canada
in 1804.
He had a son Ebenezer who married Mary
Magdalene Almas. Ebenezer's son Peter dropped
1 L from the surname. Peter lived in
Ayr, Ontario. I have earler family records
that I'll be pleased to share, but I'm in
need of info from the 1800's time period
in Ontario, Canada.

My family moved to Ontario in the Late 1700"s. They settled in Lincoln, Welland and York Counties. Do you have any Isaac Willsons, Daniel Willsons Ferdinand Willsons in your family? Have you tried looking up the 1871 Census of Ontario? There is a ton of Willsons listed. My G.G.Grandfather Became quite Prominent in Welland County in the 1800's. He was the County Court Clerk for 35 years. His name was Isaac Pemberton Willson

I have a Willson Book that shows a Daniel
Willson, born in 1758. He was the son of
Gabriel Willson Elizabeth Lundy. He married
Ann Dennis. They moved from Warren Co., N.J.
to Pelham Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, Canada.
Daniel was a 2nd cousin to my 3rd GGF, John
Willson. I have lots of early Willson family
data but still need to fill in some blanks
for the families that settled in Ontario.
Please get in touch if you would like some
of the early family history.
