Looking for info. on William Wilson. He is found on the 1860 Caswell Co. Census in the Yanceyville district. He is head of household and 23 y/o. His wife is A. Wilson who is 19. There is a daughter D. A. Wilson who is 2 y/o. I believe the daughter to be Ann Wilson. I believe this family lived in Person Co. in approx. 1864-65. Believe William died during the Civil war leaving his wife Adalet and at least 3 children. His son John was bonded to Silas Hopkins in Orange Co. after Wm's death. John grew up in the Hurdle's Mill area. Ann grew up in the Bane's Store area. She later married Sam Dixon and lived in Pittsylvania Co. VA.

Also, W. E. Ingram is on the same page of the census. He is the head of household. In a photo album of my greatgrandfather's (John) there is a pic. of a Bud Ingram. I wonder if Bud may be one of the people in the household. The males are M. G. Ingram and E. Ingram.

Thanks for any help
