Little is know of Timothy Hixson's life in New Jersey. It is believed that he was living in Sussex County in 1771, but there had been changes in county lines during those years. Just when he moved to Sussex County is not known. Timothy Hixson and Naomi Corwin were married shortly before the beginning of the Revolutionary War, but what part he may have played during the war is not known. Timothy and Naomi followed her parents to Canada in about 1788. At that time Ontario was just a wilderness and living conditions were primitive. United Empire Loyalists moving into the area after the war were the first actual settlers, but they were soon followed by many others. Timothy Hixson only lived a few years after moving to Canada but it is believed that he was a farmer and blacksmith during his years there.
