Civil War veteran, James C. Wilson, served as a Private in Company D, 12th Kansas Infantry. He enlisted on 21 Aug 1862, at Franklin Co, Kansas. He served in skirmishes with Indians at Fort Wichita, Kansas, and was with General Custer for several days. While he was returning guns to Fort Leavenworth, the wagon turned over, threw the horse, and he was caught in a way that fractured his left scapula (shoulder). His military records indicated that he had green eyes and was 5 feet 8 and a half inches tall.

He married Lucy Jane Harris 25 Aug 1870 in Johnson Co, Missouri. They had 11 children: Sarah Addie, Maggie Olive, Tulah Mae, Stella Cecil, Nathan Calvin, Dena (died in infancy), Mamie, Lilla "Tippie", Vida Lorene, Joseph M. "Joe", Finis Omega.
