Thomas "Creek" Wilson
Birth: 1725
County Armagh, Northern Ireland
Death: Jul. 6, 1796

Thomas [Wilson] was a justice of the peace in Cumberland County, and one of the men who helped drive out squatter trespassers on the unpurchased lands of the Indians in 1750. He took up a large tract where Port Royal borough is situated. One tract was warranted February 3, 1755, and had two hundred and forty-two acres; the other, June 9, 1763, had one hundred and six acres. The lower tract he called "Armagh" [after his old home in Ireland] and the other "Addition," surveyed, April 26, 1765, by William Maclay. George Armstrong's land bounded above on the river. Wilson moved on his lands in 1771, and assumed prominence in the early settlement. He was called "Thomas Wilson, Creek," to distinguish him from the one at the mountain. His son, George, sheriff of Mifflin County in 1791, and his grandson, Sheriff W. W. Wilson, of Mifflintown, recently deceased, were men well known in their day.
