Roy married Anna UNKNOWN in 1924 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. (Anna UNKNOWN was born in 1894 in Pennsylvania.)
1901 Canadian Census, Woodstock, Oxford County, Ontario. Repository: Ancestry. Surety: 4. Lists Roscoe Wilson (age 44, b. 16 Aug 1856, Ontario), wife Harriet [Budd] (age 37, b. 25 Apr 1863, Ontario), and children William J. (age 17, b. 13 Jun 1883, Ontario), Harry C. (age 14, b. 25 May 1886, Ontario), Roy R. (age 8, b. 24 Mar 1893, Ontario), Rhoda (age 6, b. 4 Sep 1895, Ontario) and Laura A. (age 2, b. 30 Nov 1898), living in Woodstock, Ontario. Roscoe is listed as a "farmer." William is listed as a "general laborer." Harry is listed as a "telephone operator."
1920 US Census, Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. Surety: 4. Lists Roscoe (age 64), wife Harriet (age 56), son William John (as John W., age 37), son Roy R. (age 27), daughter Rhoda M. (age 24), son Frank (age 18), and William's son, John (aka Jack, age 7). Roscoe is listed as a "shipper" of "wholesale dry goods." William is listed as a "barber" in a "shop." Roy is listed as a "salesman" of "wholesale dry goods." Rhoda is listed as a "stenographer" for a "piano company." Frank is listed as an "accountant" for the "railroad." Also living in the household is a "lodger" named William E. Smith, who works as a "tailor" at a "tailor shop." This William Smith was born in Canada, and likely immigrated to Michigan along with the Wilson's. He is also found on the 1930 US Census, living in Detroit with Roscoe's son, Roy.
1930 US Census, District 536, Detroit (Districts 501-750), Wayne County, Michigan. Surety: 4. Lists Roy Wilson (age 38) and wife, Anna (age 37, b. PA), living in Detroit, MI. Also in the household is William Smith (age 38, b. MI), listed as a "boarder." This is the same William Smith who was living with Roy and his family on the 1920 Census, although I believe his birthplace was actually Canada. Roy's birthplace is also erroneously entered as Michigan. Roy is listed as a "salesman" for "wholesale dry goods" [same as previous census]. William is listed as a "tailor" for a "tailor shop." The census indicates that Roy and Anna have been married for six years. Anna indicates that both of her parents were born in New York. The census also indicates that Roy has not served in the military, and that William did serve in WWI.
