In 1897, Wilson came to Rochester, where he painted many local landscapes, such as Genesee Valley Park (then known as South Park). Because he suffered from palsy, Marlatt's paintings took on a wavy characteristic unique to his hand. In 1911, Wilson died of palsy in his home on Plymouth Avenue. He and his wife are buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery.
