    • The identity of Catherine Willse's parents is a long-standing brick wall and much more research is required before I can conclude that James Wilsey is actually Catherine's father.
      This James Wilsey (b. 1758) was the eldest son of Gerardus Wilsey and Sarah Pinkney. James married his third(?) wife in 1816 in Otsego County putting him in the right general area for his daughter Catherine to have met John Tanner.
      It is notable that John Tanner's sister Roxana married Blenis Willse, who was the son of John Wilsey and grandson of Gerardus Wilsey. If these relationships are correct, then Catherine and Blenis were cousins who married a brother and sister.
      The fact that one of Catherine's sons was named James Wilsie Tanner is consistent with the idea that Catherine's father was named James, but obviously could be a coincidence.
    • There was a James Wilsey living in Maryland, Otsego, New York US Census), but he appears to be too young to be Catherine's father.
