[As of 2019/07/11, 1221 Wilson Road, Macedon, New York, 14502]:

The neighborhood as of 1904 is below, showing the home of Mitchell Neville Wilson and Sara (Smith) Wilson where Lewis Mitchell Wilson and Pearl (Lauder) Wilson lived after their marriage in 1914. Lewis Mitchell Wilson managed the farm and, after Harvard law school, practiced law in Rochester, New York. During the week he would milk the cows in the morning and then take the inter-urban (the Rochester, Syracuse and Eastern), shown on the map, as the R S & E, to work returning at night to his chores at the farm. Pearl (Lauder) Wilson taught school at District Number 4 at the intersection of Wilson Road and what is today Route 31. The road was not named after the Wilsons until their son, John Mitchell Wilson, became the Supervisor of the Town of Macedon.

Pearl Ann (Lauder) Wilson was married for four years before her husband, Lewis Mitchell Wilson, died in the flu epidemic of 1918. In those first four years and for a brief time after she kept a baby book of her daughter, Ruth Virginia Wilson reproduced below.
