Double "L" Willson Informarion

Anyone looking for information on Willsons who spell their name with 2 "L"s may be interested in contacting me to inquire about a book about to be published by Richard E. Willson of Ohio. Richard wrote the first Willson Family book in the late 50's as a graduate student, and in the late 70's, he wrote a supplement to this book. Now, he is retired from his career as a university librarian, and he is about to publish his third version of The Willson Family. I have been assisting him with this work for about 2 years now, and it seems to me that about half of all the WILLSON people I have encountered are descendants of this particular Quaker family originally from Scarborough, England, who emigrated to Crosswicks, Burlington County, N.J. in 1682. Please feel free to e mail me at if you are interested in exploring this avenue of inquiry.
