The following appears in Jacob Helmick's Will dated June 13, 1815.

"I give and bequeath to my grandson, Jesse Wilson, son of my late daughter, Mary, the wife of Jacob Wilson, Deceased, the sum of Twenty dollars to be paid to the said Jesse Wilson when he shall have arrived to the age of twenty-one years."

The 1810 census shows Jacob Wilson with 2 female children under 10 years of age. These children were not mentioned in Jacob Helmick's Will.
