Hi, Keith....This is a crazy family..1850 Federal census lists Jeremiah Wilson w/ wife Frances (or Fanny) and children along with his parents, Jeremiah and Jerucia Willson. I list most of the last name with 2 Ls. Children are Elizabeth, afe 7 (my husband's great grandmother) b.1842 in Illinois; Jeremiah, age 3 and Olive age 1. The 1860 Scott, Linn Co., KS lists the same persons along with a James age 6. Jerucia is no listed so she must have died. Then comes the 1870 Mt. Pleasant, Atchison Co, KS federal census which lists Jeremiah and Fanny w/children Ariene, age 6 and William, age 2. And the elder Jeremiah must have died by now.
Elizabeth Christina Willson Lee died in Miami, OK in 1942 at age 99. Her obituary listed among survivors a brother William of Los Angeles and a sister Clara Plumley of Wichita, KS. Have found no record of a Clara. Hope this helps you a bit. I don't know where Jeremiah and Frances are buried but a good guess is either KS or OK. Good luck.
