Miscellaneous Information:

"The wife of David Wilton, Katherine, has been stated by Trumbull in the History of Northampton to be 'Katherine Hoskins, daughter of Ann Hoskins, wife of John Hoskins, Sr., by a former husband.' John Hoskins, Sr. was buried at Windsor, Connecticut, May 5, 1648. His wife, Ann, died March 6, 1662. (It has been conjectured that she might have been Ann Filer.) There is no mention of a stepdaughter, Katherine, in his will. The date of David Wilton's marriage to Katherine is not known. At the organization of the church at Northampton, Massachusetts, in June, 1661, a 'Kathern Wilton,' doubtless the same, signed the church covenant. After the death of David Wilton in February, 1677/8, Katherine married Thomas Hosmer, of Hartford, Connecticut. They were married at Hartford, May 6, 1679. He was the son of Stephen and Dorothy Hosmer of Hawkhurst, Kent, England, and was baptized at that place, January 2, 1603. He died at Northampton, Massachusetts, April 12, 1687, at the age of eighty-three. The date of her death is not known.

David and Katherine (Hoskins?) Wilton had only one child, a daughter: Mary (#2086)."
