Gr-gr-grandfather, REUBEN WILSON, married ELLEN HOSKINS, May 2, 1857, in COLES County, Illinois. I have Hoskins family information, but nothing on Reuben. Their children were: THOMAS WILLIAM WILSON, b. 1857 in Indiana (raised in Allensville, Illinois); MAY WILSON (married a GREENWALT in Coles County, then a SMILEY); and SOLOMON WILSON (son ELLSWORTH WILSON). Neighboring counties of SHELBY, MOULTRIE, CLARK, and EDGAR, seem to have traces of Reuben (he had land holdings in Edgar), but can't seem to connect him to other Wilson families in those counties. Possibly he was a cousin to these families? It appears he died in the early-to-mid 1860s (Civil War?). Anyone having information on this family or Reuben Wilson, please contact me at Thanks, Carol Gould
