Wilt's & Campbell's
John Andrew Wilt m.Mary Elizabeth Wood and had 2 daughters - Harriet and Maria Jane/Mary Jane. John's siblings were John Nelson Wilt (who had 9 children), William, Sarah, Sadie, Jessie, and Sophia Wilt.

Harriett Amelia Wilt (several spellings for Hariet)
Harriett Amelia Wilt's father was William Andrew Wilt of Burham, Scotland. Harriett had a brother William and a sister Maria Jane (abt 1810). She married John Campbell on Dec 26, 1835 in Bass River, NB - Presbyterian. John & Harriett Amelia Wilt had 12 children were:
Sophia 7/12/1837
Mary Jane 12/10/1838
Archibald 10/1840
John Russell 7/10/1842
Sarah 4/7/1844
Amanda 3/17/1846
Amelia 2/17/1848
Emily 11/27/1850
Edward 3/1/1852
Margary Ann 6/15/1854
Elizabeth 8/23/1856
David 5/29/1858

I believe William Andrew Wilt had 6 siblings. I have the names but not any dates. A decendent of this part of the tree lives in Bass River NB - Gordon & Emma (Campbell) Campbell. Some Scottish Campbell's married Irish Campbell's which makes it difficult to trace. The marriages of John & Harriet and William & Maria Jane was performed by John Wheten, Esq. on Dec 26, 1835.

Maria Jane Wilt
Maria Jane Wilt married a William Campbell (abt 1816 PEI) m.Dec 26, 1935 in Bass River, New Brunswick (see info below). William was a Presbyterian, Farmer & Lumberman. William Campbell & Maria Jane Wilt had 8 children:
Sarah Eleanor 1837
John abt 1839 married Mary Elizabeth Wood 6/15/1968
Shipbuilder
Christina 1841
William 1844
James 1846
Eliza 1848
Amos 1850
Ann 1850

Note that both Harriett & Maria/Mary Jane married Campbell's on the same day in Bass River. John Campbell (b.1809) had an older brother Duncan (1801) and a brother Peter (b.1810). They came from PEI.

Duncan Campbell m.Annie Graham and had 6 children:
Mary
Sarah
Katherine
Alex
George
William

Peter Campbell m.Esther McKenzie and had 2 daughters:
Lucy
Sarah (adopted ?)
