I have traced a line of my family back to Jane (Wilson) Mayers of New Middlesex, PA. I believe her father was David Wilson born 1768 - died 8 Jan 1842 - Hubbard Township, Trumbull County, Ohio. I suspect he is her father because I have a cemetery listing with their graves in close proximity to each other in Deer Creek Cemetery in New Bedford, PA. There is also a son David, Jr., born 1807 and his wife, Mary buried there. I believe David the elder was active in the old Deer Creek Presbyterian Church. His headstone says he was in the War of 1812.

An old county history of Trumbull County says the elder David came to Hubbard Township around 1804 from Washington County, PA.

An LDS record lists the elder David as having been born in Chambersburg, Franklin, PA. They also list him as having married Jane Wiley.

Any further information about this family would be greatly appreciated.
