Seeking information on James H. Wilson and Leona Shively they were married 23 Jul 1881 in Henry County, Indiana.
Both Leona and James were listed on the 1900 census.
They had a daughter Bessie Laura Wilson my great great grandmother born the 26th of February 1884, they also had a son George Wilson who later died in Toledo, Ohio at the age of 32 and he was an editor of something. Also listed on the 1900 Henry County, Indiana census record is a Tommy Wilson living with them stating relationship as brother. Tommy Wilson was born in 1863 and James in 1860 both in Indiana, probably in Henry County. The census states that James and Tommy Wilson's father was born in Kentucky and their mother in Virginia. Leona Shively is listed as born in 1861 in Indiana. Leona Shively's parents are stated as being born in Ohio for her Father and Indiana for her mother. Any information on this family is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
