RE: Thomas Wilson question
I hope you don't mind if I ask a few more questions.

1. Was the source of your information the "Wilson family record, 1730 AD 1889 AD" held at the San Marcos, TX library? I see that resource was "written by Amariah Wilson, Sr.; reproduced by Shari Dell Wilson Barker; typewritten copy by Lois Katherine Wilson Brown Willey".

I see that the Fort Wayne, Indiana, library has "Wilson family" by Amariah Wilson. I wonder if it is the same.

2. Did you work from the handwritten version or from a typed version of Amariah's work? I'm trying to figure out where I can see Amariah's original handwritten version, to see what "Goochy" looks like there.

This information could solve a long-standing question of who my ancestor Thomas Wilson was (all we know is born in Ohio ~1816). His daughter, Catherine Amarilla Wilson, was my gg grandmother. Her middle name and "Amariah" are so similar. I appreciate any pointers you can give. If a box of Amariah's original handwritten papers is held at an archives somewhere, I will make a trip to see them.

RE: Thomas Wilson question
Thank you. The women my Thomas Wilson married were (1) Margaret Jane McGaughey and (2) Mary Christy, both in Holmes Co., Ohio. I wish I could connect the woman named "Goochey" to either of these. I appreciate your response.

Thomas Wilson question

I am trying to determine if my ancestor Thomas Wilson born in 1818 or 1817 in Ohio is the same as Thomas Wilson son of James Wilson born 1784, who is son of the soldier Thomas Wilson born 1760 in PA. My father has come up as a match to a man who is descended from John S Wilson, another son of the soldier Thomas Wilson. The grandson Thomas is the only one that comes close to matching my ancestor.

I cannot find anything except family trees listing the grandson Thomas Wilson with a birth year and no other info, and the birth year they all list is 1812. If you have any additional information about this Thomas Wilson, I will be greatly appreciative. If he is connected to this family, I'm happy to share additional details of his family history with you.

Miller cemetery Claysville PA
The photo you placed on the Miller memorial pages are from my Miller website and were taken by my husband, Edw Walsh. Do you live near this cemetery? I am interested in finding a list of the burials there. Do you have such a list? Thanks.

S.A.. Wilson
I'm looking for the location of a brick-yard that was supposedly owned by S.A. Wilson. 1869 newspaper: brickyard for sale: 5 miles SE of Independence. Administrators of the estate of George Wilson.
1904 newspaper: 1st Pres. Church celebrates 50 years. The first church was build 1854. The brick for the building was made on the farm of Mr. Samuel Wilson.
Any information would be appreciated.

Hi Michael,
I'm the daughter of Ron Wilson and have been enjoying seeing my grandparents' and uncle's memorials. I have some papers that came from you, I think, with copies of Buchanan Co. records. Thanks for all you have done to create these memorials!

thomas stelin
My father in law was a nephew of Thomas. I have been doing the family tree and am really curious about his name change. He was born Antonio Italiano. When Carmel was alive I talked to her about alot of things but not this question. If you can give any light on the subject it sure would be appreciated.
Thank you

Sabo Family in Aurora, Illinois

I saw your name connected with the Sabo family in Aurora.

I see we have a couple of things in common: I'm an Army retiree and was raised in Nevada (Boulder City).

I was researching a relative of mine, Iva P. Carlson (b. abt 1911 in Aurora, IL). The 1930 Federal Census shows her living with her family, but listed as married and using the surname "Sabo." Her husband is not listed with her. I see that there was a Sabo family living in Aurora at the same time, and that a couple of their children, Joseph and Julius, are about the same age as Iva. Joseph Sabo is listed in the 1930 Federal Census in Aurora as being married, but no wife is shown.

I wonder if there is any family recollection of a marriage between the Sabos of Aurora and Iva Carlson? I lose track of Iva after the 1930 Census and wonder if she could have married one of the Sabo children and then have died shortly thereafter.

RE: Hi,
Hi, I finally found the infomation where it said that Mary Ann Westlake parents were George and Amy Bailey Westlake. It was on her death cert that I had put away for safety.

On the records on the Family search site through the Morman church. On the England christening it said whow may child they had that was christened.

Check it out.
