Does this tie into any other Wilson researchers line? In 1840 there is a David Wilson listed in Burke, West of the North Fork. I'm guessing in 1850 it became part of McDowell County.

My GGGrandfather was Jasper Alexander Wilson 1844-1921 on his death certificate his place of birth was McDowell, NC and his father was David J. Wilson. On the 1870 census Jasper is working on a farm as a laborer for a Johnathan Buchanon in Mitchell, NC, then in 1880 he is married to Caroline Jarrett Garland in Mitchell, NC with 3 Wilson children & 1 step daughter. They move to Cades Cove, Blount, TN in the early 1880's, where the family remained until 1936 when Cades Cove became part of the Smokey Mt. National Park.
I'm looking for anyone who may tie into this Wilson line. Jaspers death certificate listed his fathers place of birth as NC. Mary V. Wilson's death certificate stated her father was born in GA. It appears this Wilson line was in NC for awhile. David J. Wilson enlisted in the 22nd Regiment,North Carolina Infantry Co.B at age 50 in 1861.
I also found a Mary E. Wilson Married James M. Neal on 8/15/1854
Wilson, D J Marries Barnes, Lurania Oct. 12, 1864
Wilson, D JJ Marries Miles, Nancy Jun 22, 1843
Trying to find out if these marriages are for the above listed individuals on the census records.
Mary V. Wilson's son John Henry Wilson married a Mary Presnell in 1901 in Marion. This family is buried at the Proctor Cemetery in Marion, McDowell, NC.
