States: West Virginia: Upshur
I am researching the Wilson name. I understand that part of Lewis County that is now Upshur County is where some Wilsons moved from Highland County perhaps Samuel Wilson. I am a descendant of John Melton Wilson b 1874 s/o John William William b.1845 Highland county, Va s/o John L. Wilson born about 1819 in Lewis County Va.
I am looking for any Wilson that might have some background knowledge of Wilson's in this area. I saw and article written by Mrs. G.B. Wilson in 1925 about this county.
