The Wilson's of Iowa my main connections are to the Wilcutt's, Bartlets,Flemmings Scotts, Shurts, Phillips & Hursts.
The McKinstry's & Robinsons are my main connection January 08, 1813 to an Alexander McKinstry born in Co. Antrim. North Ireland.
Our biggest stumbling block in the parents of Michael L. Wilson.
Michael L. Wilson's parents seem to hide from us, so in your search keep this name in the back of your mind. Just perhaps you will be the one to light up my life.
The parents of Michael L. Wilson and we believe Delilah Wilson. I believe Michael and Delialah may have been brother and sister and possibly twins. The 1850 census perhaps miss lead us showing a Benjamin and Elsa Wilson living with Michael L. Wilson. We believe that the Benjamin and Elsa were the father and the brother of Michael L. Wilson's wife Sarah Ann Bartlett daughter of Benjamin & Elizabeth Fleming.
