Hi Jewell,
I'm afraid I don't know much about the Wilson family, however here's what I do know;

Judging from the census records, John Wilson was born about 1796 in Maryland. His wife was named Elizabeth and was born about 1801 in NC. Both were living in 1880 but neither appear in the county death records.

I know of 3 children, but doubtless there were others;

Eliza, b. abt 1831, md James A. Tate 10MAR1869 in Surry Co.
Thomas, you know about. Leanna died in 1869. I think Thomas must have lived near Roanoke.
(I only know of one child, John Robert (1863-1932)
Lydia, born abt 1838, married James Edwards.

If you could add anything to the Wilsons who stayed in Carroll, I would appreciate the information.

best regards,
Ron Hall
