According to Trumbull County Probate Court Marriage Record the marriage license for Jane Van Wy and William Wilson was issued on January 16, 1863.Their address was Weathersfield Township. The wedding was performed January 21, 1863 by Rev. R.W. Jones, Baptist Minister.

I would appriciate recieving the information on their children and descendents. Also William's background.

I have not been able to confirm the following yet, however I will share my collected data, the only female Van Wy[e] named Jane of the appropriate age range of whom I so far am aware is the daughter of Daniel Van Wy[e],born circa 1812, and Sarah [Sally] Anne Wanimaker [spelled as on TCPC Marriage Record but perhaps correctly Wannamaker]. This particular Jane was born abt.1843 per 1850 census list of Daniel's family members. Daniel's mother was Jane Cameron [b circa 1775].His father was Charles[b.1771,d.1855]VanWy[e].This Charles is the Uncle of the Abram Van Wye[b.1797] I have discussed in postings elsewhere on this forum.

Jane and Charles settled in Trumbull County soon after 1800. Nearly all their children were born there. When Charles died in 1855 he must have been one of the most senior of the residents in the county. So far I have not located an obituary for either of them, but I suspect he at least recieved a pretty good write up. They moved to Trumbull County from Washington County, Pennsylvania. Charles was baptized in Sussex County, NJ and by report was raised in northestern PA most likely in the Minisink region now near Stroudsburg and the Wyoming Valley in the vacinity of where Wilkes Barre is now. He and his brother Arthur [Abram's father] went to Washington County, PA as young men with the Whiskey Rebellion militia in 1794 and never returned to eastern PA. I am not yet aware of Jane Cameron's antecedents.
