I haven't posted in awhile and am still stuck at my original roadblock.
Below is my wilson line. I cannot get beyond John Wilson (Willson?), b.
bet. 1735-40, Bedford Co., VA, d. abt. 1802, Granville Co., NC, Will
probated 2 Mar 1802, who was married to Lucy ?. I am speculating that her
maiden name was Burton, daughter of Col. Robert Burton, based on the fact
that John was the executor of Col. Robert Burton's will and he named one of
his sons Robert Burton Wilson. In any case, here is my VA/NC Wilson line as
I know it.
