I am trying to better ID a Calvin Willson [b. ca 1799] of Vernon Twsp., Sussex Co., NJ.
Vernon REEL NO: 464 PAGE NO: 68A
REFERENCE: 5 September 1850 John A. Johnson 134

It appears to me that Sarah Willson, daughter of Calvin had an
illigitimate daughter Rebecca Elizabeth, born in 1849 by records. Sarah later marrys Issac Williams [1851] .. this about 21 months after the birth of Rebecca.
Another son, "John I." is born to them that same year. My problem is this .....
my direct ancester John Cool married [according to John Cool's bio] ....
"John Cool remained in De Kalb County [INDIANA} till 1850 and then visited Ohio and New Jersey where he had a sister, Mrs. Sarah D. Hunt, spending about a year, and while there, Oct. 8, 1851, was married to Sarah A. Wilson, a native
of Sussex County, N.J., born April 5, 1831."

....... is this THE SAME SARAH???? Note: John's
sister Sarah Cool was the wife of Norton Hunt. I find the following connection between the familys:
Off the roootsweb ....
.ID: I0429
Name: William HUNT
Sex: M
Death: 22 FEB 1825 in Vernon Twp., Sussex Co., NJ
Medical Information: Buried at Moshure (Williamsville) Cemetery.

Marriage 1 Sarah ?

Jane HUNT b: 26 DEC 1786 in Dutchess Co or Putnam Co., NY or NJ.
William HUNT b: 26 NOV 1784 in Dutchess Co., NY
I suspect the following: Jane Hunt became the wife of John I. Williams and were the parents of Isaac Williams. Brother to Jane, William Hunt [b. off by exactly 1 yr from what I had] married 2nd Elizabeth Williams and were the parents of Norton Hunt! This would make Issac Williams [Sarah Willson's husband] and Norton Hunt [Sarah Cool's
husband] first cousins! Living in the same area, so certainly an opportunity for Sarah's brother John Cool to meet Sarah Willson Williams while spending a year visiting his sister
Sarah Cool Hunt. If I'm right in my thinking, Sarah married John Cool [in 1851 or 1852 as the bio could be off a year or so] and abandoned her two small children, as they both show up living with Issac and his subsequent wives on later census records. Isaac remarried for the second time [of three
times] in either 1855 or 1856 so [his] arah was out of the picture by then.

Can anyone help me establish that John Cool's wife Sarah Wilson was the same Sarah, daughter of Calvin Wilson and wife of Isaac Williams?? HELP!!!
