In Reply to: Elmer L. Wilson by Robert Wilson of 361

Hi Bob,

According to LDS, Elmer Lee Wilson was born February 9, 1893 in Cooperstown, IL. Parents are shown as John Wilson & Emma Bluhme. No burial info. Francis Ellen Wilson was born February 17, 1860 in AR. Parents are shown as "W. m." (I think they mean Wm.) Oliver & "Hart". She's buried in Jackson Cemetery, Krum TX.
