1850: Residing Whitley County, IN; age 41, spouse of Edwin, age 45; parents of Margaret, 15, Orella, 13, Appleton W, 10, Chester L., 3, and Gilbert J., 1.

History of Whitley County, Indiana(extract from her son, Chester's biography); Samuel P. Kaler, R. H. Maring; pub. 1907:

Her parents were natives of Virginia but migrated to Kentucky and thence to Ohio about the beginning of the last century. Her father, Thomas Wilson, was a Methodist preacher and a hunter and adventurer, one of his achievements being the shooting of a panther. Once he made a trip to New Orleans on a flatboat ladened with corn and after selling his produce walked all the way back.

He had a son named Daniel, who inherited his venturesome spirit and wandered through the west to Oregon as far back as 1846. He became an Indian fighter and later one of the goldseekers in California, where he spent the year 1849 with considerable financial success and eventually died at Portland, Oregon.

Nearly all the male descendants of Thomas Wilson served as soldiers of the Union army during the Civil war.
