Joseph M. Wilson
Birth: 1790
Death: 1861

Unmarked Grave.

Redacted and edited: "History of Ritchie County, Minnie Kendall Lowther, 1911, p. 346.

An old Slab creek family is that of Joseph M. Wilson, senior, who with his wife, Elizabeth Gray Wilson, came from Marion county, near eighty years ago, and settled on the farm that is now the estate of his late son, Peter T. Wilson. Joseph was the brother of Thomas S. Wilson, father of the venerable Isaac V. Wilson of Indian creek. Here where Joseph settled he spent his last moments near the breaking out of the Civil War; and in the Pullman churchyard, besides his wife, he rests.

His children were as follows: Thomas the eldest son went to Zanesville, Ohio; Eugenus died in Preston county in 1910 at the age of ninety-two years; the late Smallwood, Joseph, Peter T., and Reason, who lost his life in the Union cause, were all of this county: Lucy Ann married Felix Grayson, and after her death the family went to Kansas; Elizabeth was the late Mrs. Levi Wells of Grafton; and Sarah was the late Mrs. Jackson Shuttlesworth, of this county.

Joseph M. Wilson was the son of Lucy Ann and William Wilson.
