The Wilsons of Hunterdon County were multitudinous, just as were many other families of the 18th and 19th centuries. This is just one of the Wilson clans. There were others completely unrelated. As usual, I’ve tried to begin with the first of the family to settle in Hunterdon County. Children of married daughters are included, but not grandchildren. It’s quite possible there are mistakes; I am happy to receive corrections and additions, either through comments or email.
The Deremer-Wilson Farm
or Dilts Farm Revisited, part two
Part one focused on the family of Judson Rittenhouse and Martha Bodine, who lived on the farm now known as the Sarah Dilts Farm Park in Delaware Township for most of their lives. The farm was purchased by Judson’s father, Wilson Bray Rittenhouse, in 1844. This article will first describe Wilson and his family, and then will trace the history of this property back to the first European owner.
