Arthur Wilkinson m. Elizabeth Wiley late 1790$ early 1800s.  They lived in Poyntzpass and emigrated from there to Simcoe County in what is now Ontario Canada, c.1830, with their 4 sons William, John, Arthur, and Unknow, and 3 daughters, Sarah, Matilda, and Unknown.  Looking for parents of this couple, any C.of I. BMDs., Arthur was a military pensioner.

Arthur witnessed a murder in 1828 In Poyntzpass, he testified.  The perpetrators were convicted, and later his thatched roof was set afire, all escaping.  I learned this information researching newspaper articles of the time.
