I am M.LeGrand Parmer who placed message about elizabeth Linthicum from MD moving to NC with her father as a young girl and marrying my maternal ancestor John Wilson. Posted in march of 2001, I have just read your latest message about starting a family site. I live in Chapel Hill, NC and would be interested in sharing what I have. The Wilson descendants included rather interesting persons here in the UNC history books: Wilson Library, Law school prof. and Reverend N.H.D. Wilson who married Mary Elizabeth Mangum who I visted as a small girl for holidays with my Grandmother May LeGrand. Their home is on National Historic Regis. After cuddin' Nate's death, the home was sold to Betty Smith, author (A Tree Grows In Brooklyn).Our family has no other info about Elizabeth L. and I am researching the Wilsons, LeGrand's, Land's, Terry's, Nash's and spouse's families. Most of these ancestors lived in VA and NC. The family Wilson ancestor's property is now the campus of Greesnsboro College, Greensboro, Guilford Co.,NC. You may email me anytime. mlgp
