Re: George Wild son of John Wild

In Reply to: George Wild son of John Wild by Billie Brock of 607

Hi Billie, I have a Wild/Wilde book that my Mother and I contributed to. My mother was Dorothy Belle Wilde, daughter of Robert Alexander Wilde, son of Alexander Leroy Wild, son of John Jacob Wild, son of Hans Jacob Wild.

My John Jacob Wild was born 16 January 1792 and married Margaret Hensley or Wilson. My book/records tells me that your John Wild was the son of Felix Wild who was born in St. Gallen, Switzerland 2 Oct. 1762. Felix and Hans Jacob were brothers and immigrated together.

One of my Mother's cousin, Lawrence G. Fobes, was the editor and largely the researcher for this book. My Mom and I had lots of the more current information for the book. There are others too who contributed research, Robert Cornett Wild, Kenneth Charles Wilde. I do not know if this book is in print, it was just copied by mimeograph probably in the 70's or 80's. Before good copiers were available. I doubt that Larry Fobes is alive. My Mother was 100 years old when she passed in 2009. I do not have documentation in hand for proof, but I believe this was mostly found in census records for the USA info, and I do know that Larry Fobes went to Switzerland to do research. This book has personal stories of many of the Wild/Wildes.

Let me know if I can help you more.

Bernita (Bernie) Franusich
