Robert Wilson, son of Jonathan Wilson of Rhode Island, 1776, Nichols wife?
John Stewart, Jr, of St Johns Parish (later called Liberty County) Georgia, wrote his will in March 1776, leaving a thousand acre tract of land in the somewhere west of Brunswick, GA (Turtle River was a landmark) and some slaves to his 2-year-old daughter Elizabeth, because they had been willed to her late mother, Sarah Nichols, by her uncle (Sarah's brother,) Robert Nichols in 1768, St John's, GA.Sarah Nichols was John Stewart, Jr's second wife and Elizabeth was the only child of that union. [Little Elizabeth had 3 older half-siblings: Sarah, Susannah and Daniel Stewart (who would become Brig Gen Daniel Stewart, whom Stewart County, GA is named for.)]
So, for the WILSON link: 17 Oct 1776 John Stewart, Jr added a codicil to his will. No longer would the 1000 acres go to Elizabeth Stewart, but to "Robert Wilson, son of Jonathan Wilson, late, of Rhode Island."I have no idea how Jonathan and Robert Wilson might be connected to John Stewart, Jr. nor, as I first guessed, to Robert Nichols. (I thought there might have been another Nichols sister, who married Jonathan Wilson and John Stewart decided it would be more fitting if her son got the land, but I was able to find Robert Nichols' will and there is no indication of any other relatives, other than his "much loved sister Sarrah Nichols" who was single at the time; his step-son Morgan Sabb; and his wife Mary Esther.)
I have not been able to find the Rhode Island Wilson family with Jonathan as the father, deceased prior to 1776, with a son Robert still living in 1776, who might have some connection with the Georgia Stewart and/or Nichols family. (I have not been able to find the parents of Robert and Sarah Nichols. Possibly their mother was a Wilson?) Do these Wilsons sound familiar to anyone?
