My line goes as such, this is just bare bones to see if anyone can help me out:

Thomas Wilson: b about 1595-d. 1643 came to Roxbury, MA in 1633, founded Exeter, NH when he left with the famous John Wheelwright for religious views. Wife's name most likely Ann. Signed Exeter Compact as Thomas Willson

Humphrey Wilson 1633 - 1698: ran grist mill in Exeter after Thomas died. Married Judith Hersey. Had 6 children

Thomas Wilson b. May 20, 1672: Married MAry Light and had twelve children

Humphrey: Dec 9, 1699 - March 28, 1770. Married Maty Leavitt in 1727. Had 7 children including Nathaniel who I have seen mentioned numerous times in genealogical references.

Daniel: april 17 1730 - April 15, 1810. Had 5 children with Mary Wiggin and after they married in 1770 they moved to Shapleigh, ME (where the family cemetary and land still exist). The log cabin remains can still be seen womewhat.

Frederick: maried Eunice Low in 1799 erected a larger house on property and is buried in the cemetary.

Humphrey April 25 1779 - March 9 1845: Married Betsy Ga(e)ry in 1807 and had a questionable amount of children

Bloomfield: Nov 27, 1884 - d. after 1901. Married a Margaret from Ireland. Had 7 children, but some dies from epidemic in 1861.

Wesley 1868 - about 1930 married Mabel Wilkinson and shows up on a census in 1930 and was listed as a blacksmith. Had 5 children including Jesse who is mentioned often in circles.

Floyd B. Wilson - Married Ella Christiansen from Denmark and had one son. However, he got into a fist fight with his commanding officer and moved West. He begged Ella to bring their son with them and go. However, Ella's mother would not let her. Hence no Floyd Wilson (husband) listed on the census with Ella.

Floyd S. Wilson: July 20th, 1923 - Oct 31, 2001 (my grandfather) Married Mary Bennett and had 5 children. He was the longest tenured basketball coach at Harvard and died on the family property after a long bout with illness.

Any information or branches off of these people would be GREATLY appreaciated. Feel free to email me:

Thanks, Jeff
