Re: Zacheus Wilson 1765-1842 and Wright's confusion
I don't need any information from you as you are totally wrong.
Zacheus Wilson 1765-1842 never went to Sumner County, TN.Whatever so called source you have for this is incorrect.Deed records in Mecklenburg Co. and in Williamson County, TN, plus tax records and other records which have been pointed out by Paulette Haynes prove that he was in Mecklenburg Co. in 1803, when he sold his land he had inherited from his father, and he then purchased land from his brother, Robert, that was located on the Harpeth in Williamson County. When he left NC he went to Williamson County, TN and that is the only county in Tennessee that he ever lived in.
Zacheus Wilson , 1740-1824 was NOT the son of Zaccheus Wilson, Sr.He was the brother of Major David Wilson, he sold the last of his property in North Carolina in 1796 and left about that time for Sumner County, TN where his brother David had settled. In 1798, he purchased land on Station Camp Creek in Sumner County from his brother, David.In 1806, he deeded a portion of this land to his son, Jonathan Wilson, who was the son-in-law of David Wilson.
All of this is documented by deeds and court records, not just something you read at the Archives.
Zaccheus Wilson, JR. was in Oglethorpe County, GEORGIA from 1795 until at least 1808 - DOCUMENTED by county records in Oglethorpe County, Georgia.
Now, what is it that you don't understand about the significance of Primary records as opposed to Secondary records which you have relied on?
Don't you find it strange that the majority of long-time Wilson researchers don't accept what you have written? Maybe you are not aware of that because most of them have not commented on this forum as they don't want to get involved with you, but a number of them have shared that opinion with myself and with Paulette.
