From the Wilson Family Forum, (part of )message 18442 :
"Robert Wilson came from Ayrshire,Scotland than moved to areas around Newtown and Dunlop, Antrim, Ireland.
The Robert Wilson family migrated alone with John Houston and family. They first settled in Pennsylvania then moved to Augusta Co, VA. in 1742. Which became Rockbridge Co, in 1778.
The family also lived in Greene Co, Va. which later became part of Knox Co. Tn. Later in 1788 they moved alone with Matthew Houston and family to Nine mile Creek in an area know as Blount Co, Tn. Matthew Houston which General Sam Houston is the descendant of, built a fort on Nine Mile Creek. Will F.Parham, the Blount County historian, sought to locate the old fort and found out it was on Robert Wilson's land. The land that they moved to in Blount County was part of a land grant."
Would the Wilson & Houston families (perhaps relatives of the Adair family in co. Antrim) have migrated with Adairs ?
