email to ann ......Hello researcher, I am not a Wilson, but my friend is. I've been trying to help her find info. on her grandfather, Thomas (Tom) Wilson. It is her belief that he was born in Canada 1860 (+- 3 years). His story was to them: His father died in the civil war (or at least, did not return from war) for some reason or other. He and his mother came to the states when he was an infant.. Believed to be in AL or KY. He did not remember his mother, except for the fact she was a large woman and he would hide behind her apron when company came. He didnot know either parent's name. His mother died while he was a small boy and he went to live with an uncle (unknown) possible named Jim Wilson, who lived in TX. Tom worked on the King Ranch for a time. He made cattle drives to OK and there he met and married Annabell "Smock" White. They had children: Tom's step dau., Vernie White, b. 1886, AR.... Dau. Maude, b. Ind. Terr. 1894...Sons: Connis, b.AR 1895...William, b. Ind. Terr.,1900, Gilbert, b. ?,...Aught, b. 1902, Roland, Seq. Co., OK., (My friend's father).....T. Lee, b.?.......Rocky, b. ? I know this is a stab -in- the- dark, but, right now, we are at a brick wall. Any info. is greatly appreciated. Hoping some of this rings a bell and we can connect somewhere. HAVE A GREAT DAY.......
