- Information on this family is very sketchy -- a list of children, without
dates, from John Lowrie Mateer's notes: William, Elizabeth, Ann Jane and

The 1860 census of Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County, lists W. Wise,
shoemaker aged 51 years, living with M. Wise aged 49, William Wise aged 25 and
R. Wise aged 14 years.
