Can anyone shed any light on the parents or birthdates of John Wilson or Elizabeth Martin?
JOHN WILSON was born about 1785(?) in Pennsylvania, and died March 16, 1835 in Warren Township, Belmont County, Ohio near Barnesville. He married ELIZABETH MARTIN March 22, 1806 in Monmouth, New Jersey, Monmouth County. She was born about 1785(?) in New Jersey, and died April 15, 1835 in Warren Township, Belmont County, Ohio, near Barnesville.
Their daughter Elizabeth was born in 1826 in Belmont Co, OH.
2 of their sons:
SAMUEL B. "BUD" WILSON, b. December 18, 1808, Monmouth, Monmouth County, New Jersey; d. November 1, 1887, Dallas, Marion County, Iowa.

Thomas Wilson was born May 5, 1815, and was a native of New Jersey. The name of his father was John Wilson; he was a native of New England, and his ancestry were natives of this country for at least the space of three centuries, and farther back trace their lineage to Scotland. John Wilson contracted a matrimonial alliance with a New Jersey lady, Miss Elizabeth Martin, by whom he became the father of eleven children, Thomas Wilson, the subject of this sketch, being the fifth in order of birth. They carried on the peaceful occupation of agriculture, and when Thomas was a child of three years his parents cast their eyes westward and determined to seek their fortunes among the hills of the Buckeye State. They selected Belmont County for their location, and upon a farm there followed their vocation for a number of years. Previous to his marriage, the father, a member of the Quaker community, but marrying outside of the community was obliged to surrender his claims as a member of this organization. He lived to a good old age, and his life terminated in Belmont County, as did also that of the mother, when she was well stricken in years. ----> This is an odd statement, if their 1st born was born in 1806 and the last was born in 1829 - Elizabeth couldn't have been but 60 at the oldest I would think.
I found a notation on some information for their youngest son William: ---> William Wilson was born; 7/21/1829 at; Barnesville, Belmont County, Ohio. To; John Wilson and Elizabeth Martin Bible (Wilson) ---> but have no idea if this is accurate.
