The following is a notarized statement (made in 1942) found by a cousin in the Kate Love Simpson Library in McConnelsville OH:

Stephen Wilson was the son of William and Rebecca Wilson. William lived west of Watertown, Washington County, Ohio, at a place where the road from Watertown to Oakland church crosses Flat Run. He and his neighbor, John Sanders, were veterans of the War of 1812. After the death of his wife, William married Mrs. Lavinia Thompson and removed to Windsor township, Morgan County. No issue of the marriage. William and Rebecca Wilson are buried in a cemetery on a hill on the left hand side of the road leading from Watertown to Brokaw. Robert, Elijah, Orson and Stephen Wilson were sons of William and Rebecca Wilson.
