Oh hang on. Looking at it again, isaacs changed to Merzingsky later. How odd. Wonder why?

And there were a lot of years between Jacob and Abraham .

No, they were using the surname Merzinsky in 1901 census, used  Isaacs in 1891.

The wife is Jane/Janie in both.

We do not know why some of them picked Wilson, as well.

There were a lot of years between the brothers, the parents started their family when they were both very young, and kept on going, not that unusual.
