William Willson and Elizabeth Garver from Ohio to Ind. to Ca

searching Wilson line
Family story says that Elizabeth married William Wilson 17 July 1831 Butler Co. Ohio and went to California in the 1849 Gold rush With the finding a entry for Amanda Elizabeths daughter in the IGI saying she was born in South Bend St. Joseph County Ind. in 1847 then to Sacremento Ca.after 1847 I find William and Elizabeth in the 1850 and the 1860 Sacramento Ca. Census they seem to be quite well to do in 1850 they own an Eating house and are worth $20,000.00 a lot of money in 1850 in 1860 he is a farmer ?? I do not know if Mary Bower is Elizabeths sister or perhaps a cousin. There is a Oliver Wilson born Sept 1857 died 25 Aug 1859 I had thought might be one of their children There is an Alfred who is not accounted for in 1860 , he was one year in 1850 The cemetary is Slough House Pioneer Cemetery Amanda is suppose to be here also ?? The children are from census but may not be correct.
