I am in California so nt where newar NJ to do hands on looking. As for LDS I have ZERO luck finding anything since the center near me seems to be staffed with people that don't even know how to make copies of microfilm.

If anyone can help actually locate Ann/Anna Willson's husband that would be a GREAT help.

Try looking in two places. First two "L" Willson are sometimes Quakers who lived in Hardwick settlement (now Allamuchy Twp Warren County NJ The Hardwick meeting records are available thru the LDS church or if you are in the area at the Warren County Historical Society. Second, Bowlsby and Carpenter are lower Warren County Names and there were Wilsons in that area as well as Hunterdon County NJ. Warren was part of Sussex until 1825.

Around 1790 my Wilson/Willson family left Sussex co., New Jersey.
I am trying to find information on them before they left to go to Grimsby/Saltfleet, Canada.

Looking for husband of Ann/Anna Willson she was b. 1739 d. 1815 and father to Hugh Willson b. 1774 d. 1858 (married Anna Lewis), Joseph (married Ruth Carpenter), Hon. John Willson b. Aug 5, 1776 (married Elizabeth Bowlsby) and Margaret Willson.

When they left in 1790 the husband/father seems to have already been deceased.

Any information on any of these people and the name of husband/father and Ann/Anna maiden name would be greatly appreciated.
