Robert Wilson-Sarah Friend family 1776 - 1840

Posted: 1534287589000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Wilson, Friend, Hilborn
Seeking to prove that this couple is one of my sets of 4th great grandparents. Robert b Ireland 1749-1759 range, served in Rev War 1776 - 1781. Sarah b PA, they married c 1784, had 11 children. By 1820 when Robert gave his statement for Rev War pension, only 2 were living with them; Robert age 20/21 & married, Esther age 14. Robert died 1824 in Beaver Co and I have his will. He left all to Sarah but land went to sons Samuel and Robert.

I believe that his son Robert is my Robert Wilson who m Ellen Hilborn c 1819/1820. So far I've not been able to prove the relationship to the elder Robert, but the time frame and places all fit. Family was Presbyterian in mid 1830's but do not know before that time.

Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
