Notes for DANIEL PEGG WILSON:
The Wilson family may have lived in Belmont and Licking County, Ohio. The family in 1836 migrated to Illinois taking up a farm near Springfield. Daniel Pegg Wilson, in about 1840 moved his immediate family to near Murphysboro, Illinois. Daniel's family moved again in about 1850, to the Concord Township of Morgan County, Illinois. In April of 1852, Daniel Pegg Wilson led his family by wagon train to Oregon.
Notes for ROSANNA HOUGH MOUL:
According to the 31May 1827 Belmont County, Ohio marriage records, Rosanna, at the time of her marriage to Daniel Pegg Wilson, was under the guardianship of John Ethel.
A John Ethell was born 15 March 1782 in Fauquier County, Virginia, his father was Anthony Ethell and mother was Sarah. William Ethell, John Ethell's brother died in Morgan county, Illinois. (Descendants of Anthony Ethell, by Leona Ethell Kastner).
Rosanna may be buried in the MORRIS CHAPEL CEMETERY aka SMITH aka MT. VERNON. NW1/4, Section 16, T16N-R11W-3PM, Concord Township of Morgan County, Illinois.. The cemetery is located 1.2 miles east of Brown's Crossroads, which is also the site of Triopia High School. The high school is located about two miles north of Concord. From Triopia High School drive east on State Aid Road 19 (also known as Road 2150N) for 1.2 miles until you arrive at the intersection with Road 1325E. The cemetery is located in the trees and brush about 100 feet north of this intersection. If the crops and brush are so tall that tombstones can't be seen, evergreen trees in the cemetery serve as sentinels marking the area.
The tombstone inscription reads:
"WILSON, Susannah F. - Died 24 Feb 1850-- Age 36 Yr 9 Mo 29 Da--Wife of D. Wilson"
It is probable that the name "Susannah" was misinterpreted on the old tombstone and should be "Rosannah" Wilson.
The Morgan County, Illinois 1850 Mortality Schedule has a Rosanna Wilson who died February 1850 of cancer.
