Any information on the following Wilson family would be appreciated. I am particularly interested in verifying the birth and death dates for William M. Wilson and any information on Joshua and Rebeca Wilson.
William M. Wilson, (1/8/1815-4/27/1890) was born in North Carolina. He married Martha Ann Ward on Sept.23, 1842 in Talbot County, GA. Your dates for her are correct. She is buried at Horeb Baptist Church, Daviston, Taylor County, GA. William and Martha Wilson can be found in the 1850, 1860, 1870 & 1880 census records for Dist.883 (Prattsburg), Talbot County.
James R. Wilson, b.1843-d.July 1864 at Siege of Petersburg, VA
William (Kiah) Wilson, b.1/8/1845-d.4/27/1890, buried at Horeb Baptist Church, Daviston, Taylor Co., GA
Mary Frances Wilson, b.8/13/1846-d.11/14/1925, married Pleasant Creed Caldwell, b.11/12/1843-d.0/11/1893, both buried at Horeb Baptist Church. Had 4-5 children.
(William) Joshua A. Wilson, b.5/8/1849-d.2/12/1904 (in a tragic accident), married Elizabeth ? in 1865, buried at Horeb Baptist Church. Had 7-8 children.
Martha Rebecca (Elizabeth) Wilson, b.1856-d.2/13/1907, married Joe Quillian Mabry on 2/21/1882, buried Sunny Level Cemetery, Alexander City, AL. Had 5 daughters.
Walter (Lafayette) Wilson, b.1857-d.after 1870, before 1896.
Zachariah L. Wilson, b.1859-d.before 1920, married Blanche L . Alexander, b.12/26/1865-d.8/19/1909, who is buried at Horeb Baptist Church. Had at least 5 children.
Augustus (Gus) Wilson, b.1868-d.after 1920, married Ella ?, lived in Taylor Co., GA. Had at least 7 children.
There may be others, these are just the ones that appear in the census records.
I believe William's parents were Joshua (b.ca.1782,NC - d.bef.1860) and Rebeca (b.ca.1783, NC - d.bef.1860) Wilson. They are in the 1840 & 1850 Census, Talbot Co., GA. In the 1850 census they are living with another son, Uriah R. Wilson (b.7/18/1827, NC - d.7/6/1907, AL) and his wife Elizabeth J. Wilson.
All of this information is corroborated in the census records, the Talbot County Marriages books, and Horeb Baptist Church cemetery.
