Amos and Mary Ann have not been found in the 1850 census.  Mary Ann Wilson was in the 1860-1880 censuses for Marion, Marion Co., OH.  She was living alone in 1860; she was living in the household of German immigrants John and Catherine Hofferman in 1870; and her son Amos Wilson and his wife were living with her in 1880.
