Are you certain that Obadiah's wife was named Pegg? Benjamin Pegg moved from PA to Jefferson Co., OH and then he moved on to Miami Co. Benjamin's ex-wife, Catherine Hull, moved from PA to Licking Co. As you have pointed out, Benjmain Pegg provided testimony for Obadiah's pension. It certainly seems that there is a familial connection to Benjamin's family. It appears that Obadiah was a contemporary of Benjamin Pegg's and that kind of makes me think that he didn't marry one of Benjamin's daughters (there are unknown children from the marriage of Benjamin and Catherine Hull that I am searching for). Benjamin also had sisters that might be a more likely bet to be the wife of Obadiah. There was a sister named Catherine that we don't know anything about. There might also have been a sister named Polly (OR she could be the Mary E. who married Daniel Higgins).
Feel free to e-mail me direct. I would like to see what other clues you have regarding Obadiah. There are certainly a LOT of Wilsons in my family tree here!
