  • Notes 
    • Her death date is usually listed as 5/6/1736. The information on her death date probably came from the book "The Willson Family, 1672-1959" by Richard Eugene Willson according to Ron Peterson. (C-2110) However, it has not been able to be verified and could just as easily apply to her mother, Esther instead. The reason why it should still be in question, is that her son, Marmaduke was most likely born in 1738 as he would still have been under the age of 21 when he was listed with his father on their move from NJ to NC in 1757.
      She and her husband could easily be the E.W. and S.W. on the stones in the oldest cemetery in Quakertown, NJ. That is the only information on the stones, but the initials on stones next to each other would statistically apply to them. Photos of them have been provided by Patti Sue McCrary.
