WILLSON, Susan 1 2
- Born: 1844, Prob. New York
1851 Canadian Census (Dereham, Oxford County, Ontario, Canada). Repository: Ancestry. Surety: 4. Lists William Willson (age 29, b. U.S.), wife Diana (age 26, b. U.S.), and children Susan (age 7, b. U.S.), Eli (age 4, b. Canada) and Elizabeth (age 2, b. Canada), living in Dereham, Ontario. Also in the household is Elizabeth Willson (age 18, b. Canada), who is likely William's younger sister. William is listed as a "wagonmaker." The family's religion is "Universalist." The ages and birthplaces of Susan and Eli lead us to conclude that the family immigrated from New York to Canada sometime between 1843 and 1847.
1861 Canadian Census (Durham, Oxford County, Ontario, Canada). Surety: 4. Lists William Willson (butcher), wife Diana M., and children Susan, Eli B., Eliza J. and Roscoe E, living in Durham, Ontario. Living next door is a John Willson (age 60? b. U.S.) who may be William's father. More research is needed.
