Henry Pat ANTON (1872-1943) – 52 Ancestors (Ancestor 10)

I didn’t know that my paternal grandmother’s father had a middle name until Ancestry  added its “U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007” a few years ago. There is no middle name on his death certificate, and I had not heard of one. Continue reading

Cousin Bait: Moses WILSON or Moses WILLSON

I’m doing what in the genealogy community we call “cousin fishing” or putting out “cousin bait.”

It is probable that I descend from a Moses Wilson. Still working on that, and this article is not about what I know (or don’t know) regarding that Moses Wilson.

I’m seeking people who are descended from or related to anybody named Moses Wilson (or Moses Willson). The name Moses seems to be passed down in the Wilson family (from what I have seen), and I suspect that these families are related.

Here are the ones that I have found so far. If you know of any Moses Wilson or Moses Willson in your family, even if it is not one of the following, please comment or contact me.

  • Willson, Moses, d. February 1772 – Delaware, USA
    • Will probated in Sussex County, Delaware, on 19 February 1772. Wife named in Will as Ann, and children listed were Mary Hazzard, John, Isaac, Jesse, Aaron, Moses, and Sarah.
  • Willson, Moses, b. aft 1755
    • Son of Moses named above.
  • Wilson, Moses, b. abt 1793 – Kentucky, USA; d. 5 February 1872 – Jennings County, Indiana, USA
  • Wilson, Moses, b. 1 May 1715 – Exeter, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, British Colonies
  • Wilson, Moses, d. aft 1774
  • Wilson, Moses, black (negro)
  • Wilson, Moses, b. abt 1796 – Kentucky, USA; d. 1 March 1863
  • Wilson, Moses L, b. 10 August 1899 – Indiana, USA; d. 3 January 1987 – Nappanee, Elkhart County, Indiana, USA
  • Wilson, Moses P

And so many more!
