John Wilson1,2

Marriage*Based upon a letter she wrote to her son Isaac Sharp in 1776, he may have married, as her second husband, Mary (__?__) Sharp.1,2
(2nd Husband-Possible) Research Notes The 1776 letter to Isaac from his mother is of special interest to us. The Wolverton source stated that his mother had signed her name to the letter as Mrs. Mary Wilson, indicating that her husband, Isaac's father was deceased and that she had married again. However, the same source, on the same subject, referred to Isaac's mother as Mary (Wolverton) Sharp, who was actually his wife. The Washington County source included a transcription of Isaac's mother's 1776 letter to him. The transcription, however, did not include a reference to how she signed her name. Of interest, though, is the fact that she wrote in her letter, "We are talking of going to South Carolina again next spring. John's son John, who lives there was here, but I hardly think we will go." Her words have made us think that her second husband may have been a John Wilson, who had a son, John, who lived in South Carolina in 1776.2,1

Father*Uriah Wilson1
Mother*Julia Webb1
Birth*25 September 1846Sarah A. Wilson was born on 25 September 1846 in Salem, Columbiana County, Ohio.1
Marriage*10 June 1869She married William W. Heaton, son of Jacob Heaton and Elizabeth Potts Weaver, on 10 June 1869 in Columbiana County, Ohio.1,2
Occupation*Soon after their marriage, William and Sarah moved to the New York City area where William became a stockbroker. In 1973, he started his own firm named Heaton and Day, and with his financial success, he and Sarah moved to upscale Scarsdale, Westchester County, New York.1
Census US 1880*15 June 1880Sarah A. and William W. Heaton were enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 14 and 15 June 1880 on Lothar Avenue, Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey. William was 35 years of age and a stock broker, and Sarah was 33 years of age. Their two children were enumerated with them in 1880. Maud was 8 years old, and William was 5, and both had attended school within the census year. Two servants resided in the Heaton household in 1880. Amelia Roderick was 18 years old and Bridget Murphy was age 25. Also enumerated with the family were Henry G. Moore, age 35, and his wife Maria K., age 30, who were lodgers.3
Census US 1920*14 January 1920Sarah and William W. Heaton were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 14 January 1920 on Weaver Street, Scarsdale, Westchester County, New York. William was 74 years of age and a stockbroker, and Sarah was 73 years of age. They owned their house free of mortgage and employed a nurse, a trained attendant, a waitress and a chambermaid. We suspect Sarah's health may have been failing. On the 1930 census, William was identified as a widow.4
