James Wilson's 1813 will lists his children

James Wilson of Sumner and Williamson counties.

In Will Book 2-18 of Williamson County the will of James Wilson lists his children as Samuel, Joseph, James Jr, Eliz. m. Jacob Houdershell, Hannah m. James C. Hodges, Prudence m John Gorley ( Gourley ? ) and Violet m. to James Gorley.
James Wilson must have died about 1812 ... his will is dated 1813.

Jacob Houdeshell (b. about 1772 VA)is my gggg grandfather. He married Elizabeth Wilson (b. about 1773) daughter of James. They married in Sumner County June 27, 1793. She was daughter of James Wilson of Sumner and Williamson counties. I found this to be true when I ran across the James Wilson's will in Williamson County Tennesseee. Jacob is mentioned in it.

There are SO many Wilsons in TN at the time, I'm not sure who James' family is or who his wife is. I do have a list of his children taken from his will if you would like.
Jacob's son Hiram b. KY 1798 is my ggg grandfather. He married Polly Gibson in Sumner Co., daughter of John Gibson. Hiram and Polly's daughter Mary Jane "Hounsell" married Martin Waldrop / Waldroup of Giles County.
Do you know how many children Jacob had? Who was James Wilson's wife siblings and parents? I'd like to hear from you and compare notes.

Any info. on the Wilson, Houndeshall, Houndshell, Houdershalt, Howdyshall etc. , and Gibson families would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Bill Pittillo
