William Pickel/Pickle b ca 1790, s/o John Pickel/Pickel "of Mississquoi Quebec" by his first wife
married 0ct 30 1811 in Darlington Twp, Durham County Upper Canada
to Nancy Wilson, b 1795 Whitby East Twp, Home District Upper Canada; d/o Benjamin Wilson & Elizabeth _____(widow of _____Lockwood)

William Pickel/Pickel moved to Wisconsin with several of his by then grown children in 1842.

"In the year 1842, a western fever swept over the continent,               Canada not escaping. In that year, William Pickell and his wife               and a number of his married and unmarried children, together with               the Charles Terwilliger family and the Nathan Harris family, in               all about 25 souls, in their six double teamed covered wagons left               their East Whitby homes for the State of Wisconsin. When the               procession passed through the then newly formed village of Oshawa,               it created a sensation".Pedlar Papers Frame #167

Would love to hear from you directly concerning his Wisconsin descendants & 2nd wife
