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.

My apologies. On May 25, 2021, I found too many mistakes on this tree to let it stand any longer. Making corrections is going to take a lot of work, but I hope to be able to restore the tree before too long.
Raritan Township was in the news not long ago for its effort to acquire and preserve a 48-acre farm to the west of Flemington. It is located near an area that has long been known as “Hardscrabble.”
My previous article discussed the evolution of political parties in the early 1850s, both nationally and in Hunterdon County. The Democratic party was still going strong, while the Whig party was fading away and two new parties had come on the scene: the Republican party and the American party, better known as the Know Nothings.
