In Reply to: Re: Double "L" Willson Informarion by Rick Wilson of 870

Hi Rick. My family still uses the double "L" for the most part. I am hoping there is a connection.

My ggrandfather was Joseph William WILLSON. He claimed our name was the double "L" based on a school book he had seen as a child that had belonged to his grandfather. Written inside the cover was supposed to be: "Charles S. Willson, His Book".

Charles S. (Sullivan) WILLSON

M: Dec 5, 1844 in Fulton Co., IL
D: Aug 14, 1899 in Wathena, Doniphan, KS (he was visiting there)

*NOTE: Some of the above siblings did not remain in IL and changed to the single "L"....Nora Belle for instance. I understand they ended up in MO but communications were interrupted before they had reached MO I'm told. My cousin, Jonathan Binkley, says he found them but I have little real info on those who left IL and that they have no more info either.
