Willson was expelled by the Quakers for advocating the use of music in worship services. He and a small group moved to Sharon, Ontario, where they organized themselves as the Children of Peace, built a temple and formed the first civil band in Canada. Willson died in 1866 and the group disbanded in 1897, but they started a tradition of music in Sharon which lives on to this day and their Temple still stands as a museum.
