Do you want me to post the one photo that I think might be Samuel! I could send it to you and let you decide.

I am sending a copy to Diane to see what she says. Deskie is her great aunt.

RE: Deskie Frost
I would say Frost. She was Deskie Craig and Married Chester Frost. She was a sister to Martha Smith and Nila Baker. Are you speaking of the picture that has been posted by Diane Butler?

after research, I find she is not kin to the Millard Meeks, Bertha Perkins Turner family. If you could, please remove the link between the families. Thank you.

Ben Bradford's Mother
I just found out that his mother is buried in Gum Pond Cemetery. I have linked both father and mother to Ben.
by the way, I'm glad to know you are Mildred's niece. She is such a dear sweet friend from high school days.
Since Avarine lived in Lawrence Cove or nearby at one time you might want to join my FB page entitled Three Communities Reunion. Would be happy for you to do so. Mildred and I spent the night with Avarine and your dad when they lived over the store in Eva. Your brother, Marcy's husband, was a baby.

Box's in the Plains Cemetery
Please note "cousions and their spouses" do not fall within the 4th generation guidelines according to Find a Grave. I knew and Know the Box's well and have transferred the Box's in the Plains Cemetery to a Find a Grave contributor that does fall within the 4th generation. If you would like to add any links please send the requests. Thanks!

RE: Miles W Wilson
That's understandable. Was just wanting to let you know that the DNA test confirmed I was related to Foushee (William Wilson's grandparents) you would be as well :)
I am working on entering in Mile W.'s line. You aren't kidding about all the kids! I found on the one pension request from Cynthia that Miles W. was accused of deserting the war. He died of blood poisoning. Wonder what that means. Do you have ancestry, I could share the documents with you if you want.

The online tree shows William of 1747 with the following children (if you want to use it for a possible guide):
Fennel H Wilson 1770 1845
Michael Wilson 1772 1855
William Wilson 1775 1839
Betsy Wilson 1777 1842
George W Wilson 1778 1829
Nancy Anne Wilson 1779 1842
Susanna Wilson 1782
John Calvin Wilson 1784 1860
Henry Wilson 1787 1863
James J Wilson 1790 ?

It is fantastic to have someone else interested in the Wilson branch!

RE: Miles W. Wilson
I think I did the relationship calculator wrong before. I entered everything in and it says we are smidgen closer with us being 3rd cousins 1 generation removed.
I don't know really anything about the Wilsons. My great grandpa William moved the family up to Louisville because of his job with the railroad. Never been to Alabama. Sure do hope to one day.
My grandparents had my grandma Pauline. Who had my mom Debby.
I don't know how far you have on the Wilsons. I didn't have much. I recently was given an opportunity to try a dna test from FamilytreeDNA. An adopted family member wanted to see if he was related to my biological father's side (he was).

Since we don't know all of our ancestor's names, the results showed possible surnames I might be related to somehow, but do not have on my research yet. Bad part was I didn't know exactly how. I had names like the name Wright, Hendrix and Foushee coming up. Well I found a tree on ancestry (
and what do you know there was those names. I was so thrilled! Wanted to share with you in case you didn't have it. The tree goes back to a Henry Wilson & Susannah Foushee from the late 1600's. I am curious to see if the Hendrix line meets up with the Hendricks line on my mom's father's side.
So nice to meet you!

RE: Miles Wilson
