Willson Family Genealogy Forum
Esther Willson, 1780-1848, was my g-g-g-grandmother. Three of her children reported in the 1880 census that their mother was born in Ireland. In 1800 she married William Giffin in Pa. She had to have come to the U.S. between 1780 and 1800, so it is not likely that she came alone. She and Wm. died in Washington Co. PA and are buried in Spear Spring Cemetery, Canonsburg, PA. That is all I know about her. I need parents, siblings, etc.
Does this mean anything to anyone? Does anyone have Irish ancestors who might be kin and came at this time? Name of the ship? Home in Ireland? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I will be happy to share info about descendants. Thank you.
