William Wilson or William Wilder?


I BELIEVE WE HAVE SOLVED A MYSTERY – Sherry Lyn Carsten has searched long and hard for the lineage of William Wilson uncovering very little – With the help of Ted Sweeney – Post Commander of Riverton American Legion Post 159 he provided this info for me today ( I have book mentioned) I BELIEVE William Wilson is also William Wilder – they are one in the SAME:
Via the Barkhamsted Heritage book page 91:
Wilder, William: Name does not appear in Conn. Records for some reason.
He was a soldier and lame from a serious wound at battle of Monmouth. (we know the same happened to W. Wilson)
Was in Barkhamsted early; lived at “Barkhamsted Flats”.
Wife was Polly, third child of James Chaugham. (We know Polly was married to William Wilson )
He was a local preacher and often officiated at the “Hemlock Meeting House” in Robertsville. (we know W. Wilson was preacher at same place via records)
Died about 1840 and is supposed to be buried in “Indian Burying Ground” (We know W. Wilson is buried here and is known as the “only white person” buried there)
His widow was pensioned in 1840 then 82 years old. 
 
So in my research I am adding this info to William Wilson’s info and also adding the Wilder name to his last name as Wilder-Wilson
