Like the surname Lawrence, I don't consider the surname Wilson very common. Yet I have three Wilson lines. Go figure.
1. John Wilson was born about 1626 and died 2 July 1687 at Woburn, Massachusetts. He married before 1651, Hannah James, born say 1630 and died about 1698 at Woburn, Massachusetts. She married secondly, Thomas Fuller of Salem, Massachusetts. The notion that John was the son of a Roger Wilson is a fabrication. John and Hannah had ten children: John, Sarah, Dorcas, Samuel, Francis, James, Abigail, Elizabeth, Benjamin, and Hannah.
2. Dorcas Wilson was born 29 January 1657 at Salem, Massachusetts and died 29 November 1714 at Cambridge, Massachusets. She married at Woburn, Massachusetts on 26 September 1675, Aaron Cleveland, born 10 January 1653/4 at Woburn and died there 14 September 1716, son of Moses and Ann (Winn) Cleveland. Aaron and Dorcas had nine children: Dorcas, Aaron, Hannah, Moses, Sarah, Miriam, Isabel, Ann, and Benjamin.
