I would like to know if you have any more information on John Wonderlin of Burlington.

My mothers maiden name is Wonderland, usually pronounced Wonderlin. Her great-grandfather was James Wonderland, born about 1817. While I have only found records of Peter, he supposedly had other son's named James, John, and George.

In searching census and other records in Pa. and N. J. I find James, John, Peter, and George Wonderlin's and Wonderland's. In some cases both spellings refer to the same person.

The 1830 census records a Peter Wonderland living in Waterford Township, Gloucester Co., N. J. He had two sons. The older was the right age to be your John. The younger was the right age to be my James.

I have found a James Wonderland, born in N. J., in the 1850 and 1870 Pa census. My James married Leanora Edmunds in Harrison Co, West Virginia, in 1853.

The John Wonderlin living in Burlington, N. J., in the 1850 census was also born in N. J.

I have not been able to prove all of these connections but I find the number of coincidences interesting.
