John Wilson's wife
I am looking for an ancestor who traveled on the Trail of Tears and is believed to have been Cherokee. Family changed their names in Oklahoma and I all have is that her husband was named Mr. Wilson. Do you know who John's wife was?

Thank you!

Hi,

Are you a Dawson descendant? If so, do you know where you Dawson's came from originally? My maiden name is Dawson. I have traced mine back to Thomas Dawson in Durham, England. A son, John went by boat from Durham to Long Point Canada then down to Kent/Essex County area where my father was born.

I think it would be pretty cool if I could connect my Dawson's to the Logan County Dawson's, but I don't think they are.

Lunch break over. I will post the others this evening. Laptop runs really slow on the wifi at work.

RE: R.Wilson Photo
I took another look at the headstone and the 1st of
the 2 small letters looks like an N and the 2nd of the two I would say is definatly an A.
If you look at the death month it also has a small
letter next to it (L).My guess is that whom ever made the headstone was abbreveating because
of lack of space. Hope it was of help for you :)

RE: R.Wilson Photo
Great! I'm glad it helped. I believe he did say it was John. I do remember that R. Wilson shared a headstone with the father.If you look at the picture,the one that has the "Ottawa Chief" you can see the headstone under a large cedar tree, R.Wilson is on the left side and J.Wilson is on the right.Also,if you look in the background of the same picture you can see a golf cart,just beyond that is a hill.That area is the Pow Wow grounds.The caretaker said that the cheifs of the tribe would stand on that hill and deliver speeches to the tribe.The caretaker also said that cedar trees were significant to the Indians,but he never said why.
I remember him saying that Cheif John became ill after the tribe started their trek to Oklahoma on the trail of tears and died in route.Instead of them buring him where he actually died they brought him on down the trail to bury him here where their final destination was.
My husband and I got an awesome history lesson that day. It was so interesting!!
Hope this helps
