HELLO, I NEED ASSISTANCE FILLING IN THE BLANKS ON OUR FAMILY TREE AS SOME SPELLINGS OF NAMES AND BIRTH/DEATH DATES ARE NOT EXACT, NOR DO I KNOW FOR SURE WHERE ALL CAME FROM OR WENT. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED. WHAT I THINK I KNOW IS:
Three Wilder brothers traveled from Ireland to settle in Virginia. Billie Wilder and one brother left Virginia and went to Kentucky. They lost track of the brother left in Virginia. I don't know their ages or the year or or who they were married.(I'm guessing they were young men.. guessing Billie's birth year roughly between 1814 to 1820. AND HIS PROPER NAME PROBABLY WILL OR WILLY OR WILLIAM.
One of Billie Wilder's son: Ewing Wilder is the direct descendant I am following. I know Ewing had at least one brother known as Tipton (this may not be his first name), who eventually settled in Exeter, California. Ewing was born in Louisville Kentucky and married Lucenda Hunt. They had a son: Leander Wilder (direct descendant to my husband- is his great grandfather), born in Clay county Kentucky May 14, 1867 and died in Exeter Calif. Aug. 12, 1917.
I found Ewing in the 1870 US Census in Kentucky listing his age at 26.. making his birth year around 1844, his wife Luninda age 16... making her birth year around 1856 , and Leander age 4- there was another child listed: Isabella age 6- but I don't know who she is as Leander was the only child of Ewing and Lucinda that we know of. Lucinda was supposed to have died when Leander was about age 9. Supposedly, Ewing re-married and had 5 more children- but I don't know who he married. Leander lived with other relatives until age 14, then struck-out on his own,,,going to Kansas for awhile living with cowboys, cattle drives and such. He had step-brothers, only two we knew the names of - Will and Charlie. One relative thought Ewing went to Texas after re-marrying, but I don't know if that is true or not.
Leander married Elizabeth Fancher Ramsey in Rule Arkansas Sept. 2, 1888. They had twelve children. Elizabeth, known as Lizzy, her grandmother Ramsey was a Fancher and Lizzy was given Fancher as her middle name. Lizzy was born near Rule Arkansas Aug. 1871, but her family later settled in Green Forest. Her father was Henderson Ramsey who served in the civil war. Her Uncles were judges there.
Leander and Elizebeth Wilders children were:
Myrtle May; Grace Jane; Tempest Carrie; Gladys Maggie; Willie Burton all born in Berrtville Arkansas..then came Honor Lee; Jessie Florence; Glen Poey; Ewing Doyle were born in the Indian Territory Oklahoma. (3 children not named here- died in infancy)Jessie Florence Wilder is our direct ancestor born Aug. 9, 1906 and as of this writing is the only surviving family member of Leander and Lizzy Wilder. She will be 104 years old in Aug. 2010.
I would like to fill in the gaps of who Billie Wilder is connected to and Ewing Wilder's brothers and sisters and Leander's step brothers and sisters.
