Rev. Joshua E. Wixon was born in Dutchess County New York. His parents were Solomon Wixon and Mary Randall. He married Rachel Eggelston Oct. 14, 1798. He was a Baptist Minister. Joshua and Rachel moved to Pickering Ontario Canada and lived there for many years. It has been said in family stories that Joshua helped a friend leave New York by hiding his friend in his wagon. His friend owed a debt. At that time if you were caught helping someone with a debt escape you yourself were responsible for the debt. Joshua was caught and did not have the money to pay his friend's debt. He moved to Canada to escape the debt.
