I'm not a genealogist, but my great grandmother was Martha(Mattie) Viola ( Newton) Wilson. She lived in Bloomington, Illinois. I remember her telling me when I was a child that we were related to John L. Routt, 1st gov. of the state of Colorado. I don't know what the connection is. Maybe through the Newtons. Also, Could you and I be related? What do you know about this? I would like to know more about Mattie's parents and siblings. I believe that she was the youngest of 8 children. She was born while 2 of her brothers were fighting in the civil war. She always told me they were surprised to come home and find they had a new baby sister!
