I was at Logan City Cemetery a little bit ago fulfilling photo requests! Martha Jenkins Rose has a headstone photo, I manage a memorial I made for her in Feb. 2016 and yours shows 2 days after she passed that you made it. She's also linked to her father twice. If you are related I will transfer her to you, even though yours was made before mine would you consider removing yours please and thank you!

RE: Price Family in Eastern Idaho
Thanks for your reply. I try to get over that way every couple of years to visit the cemeteries. My g-grandma Pearl is buried at Milo along with a lot of the other Price's. We grew up in Emmett, so I don't know a lot of the other Price family members. Thank you so much for sharing all the photos you have. I appreciate it. Jani

Would you please consider sending me your email address. The listed memorial that you contributed has incorrect information and the spouse links are duplicated. Lois was the sister of Grant Clark, that our class of 1963 contributed and we noticed all the incorrect marriage information that another contributor sent to you and you included in Lois Memorial. Thank you.

RE: William Wilson
I agree with you that someone has your William Penn Wilson and my William Wilson in that 1806 Will all mixed up. That Will has his wife as Dianna, Where that was Nancy Dianna Green is the question?
I live in SC and have followed my Wilson Family back to Rutherford Co., NC. What I have Just comes from handed down family history, but my information is constant with what is found on findagrave about my Wilson line back to that 1806 Will.
What I sent you on The Nancy Stice Bond information comes from Betty L. Collier on with ID I657 for William Wilson. Sorry I didn't give you that before. I have left her a post-em asking her to email me. I would like to see the ladies newpaper articles to see if Nancy Stice Bond connects back to that 1806 Will.
Thanks, and again you can email me direct if you like,

RE: William Wilson
This is something I thought interesting!

** From "Bridges to the Past" by Mrs. Ernest Newton and Roy Brooks, Exerpts from Forest City, NC newspaper. **
A great deal of data on the William Wilson family was furnished years ago by a granddauther of the progenitor of this particular branch, "Aunt" Nancy Stice Bond. " Aunt Nancy' was born in Bowling Green, Kentucky on September 23, 1807 a daughter of Andrew and Nancy [Wilson] Stice, and died May 16, 1906 in Madison County, Illinois. In the latter part of her life there were many newspaper articles written about 'Aunt Nancy' and she was lauded as one of thepioneer women in Illinos. A statuette of her stands in the Illinois State Museum in Springfield. A newspaper clipping from an Illinois paper written about the turn of the century indicates that Aunt Nancy's memory was something wonderful and that she was able to give the birth, death and marriage of every member of the family even at the age of 99. The informaiton which she left, together with additional research by Mrs. West and Mr. Wilson and others, is the basis for the data given here.
'William Wilson was born about the year 1746 ub Scotland. The date of his miagration to America has not been established, but sometime before the Revolutionar War, he migrated on into N.C., settling on Wilson's Creek, a tributary of the Sandy Run Creek, in what is now Cleveland County. His was was Dianna, whose last name has not been established at this point in research, but possibly was a Green. William and Dianna Wilson were among the first members of Sandy Run Baptist Church, near present Murphysboro. Several of thenewspaper clilppiongs of the interviews with 'Aunt Nancy' Bond in Illinois mention that her grandfather, William Wilson, was wounded in the knee in a battle furing the Revolutionary War, leaving him with a stiff knee and making him a cripple for the remainder of his life. The only information located thus far in the National Archives to substantiate this was a Muster Roll of Captaion Thomas Armstrong's Compay of the 2nd N.C. Battalion, commanded by Col., John Patten, on which teh name of "Private William Wilson" appears and indicating that his term of enlistment as for three years. This Muster Roll is dated Februart 10, 1788.
The Will of William Wilson was written Decdember 7, 1806 and was filed for probate before the Rutherford County Court at the July term, 1807. In his will, William Wilson left to his wife, Dianna Wilson, 170 acres of land 'with the plantation and dwelling house'; to his older son, Spencer Wilson, he left five shillings sterling and 'the cause his portion is so small is many good reasons'. To his son, Moses Wilson, twenty dollars; to his daughter Pheby Wilson, five shillings; to son Rober Wilson, 50 acres of land 'that I bought of William Green', and a new saddle; the balance of his estate was to be divided among his children; Mary Wilson, John Wilson, Sally Wilon, Nancy Wilson, Moses Wilson, William Wilson, Thomas Wilson, Jane Wilson, and Robert Wilson. He appointed his son, Thomas Wilson as executor of his will, and his signature was witnessed by Jesse Gibbs, James Shearer, and Lott Wood. His wife, Dianna Wilson, survived him by several years and later deeded her land to a son, James Wilson in return for his taking care of her in her aging years. William and Dianna Wilson were buried in an old family cemetery called the "Gosa [Goss?] cemetery" on his plantation and this old cemetery has since been destroyed by being plowed under.
In checking the Marriage Bonds of Rutherford County, there are several Wilson marriages listed that are presumed to be the children of William and Dianna Wilson, although not proven yet. One Robert Wilson was married on February 26, 1807 to Betsey Haney; William Wilson, Jr., was married March 21, 1803 to Nancy Haney; and there is a known record of one Moses Wilson who married Barbara Costner in 1789. Neither of thise have been verified as children of William and Dianna Wilson, but names are identical to William's children, who would have been old enough to be married by those dates.
The only two lines of the family that have any extensive research data available, are those of William & Dianna's daughter, NANCY Green Wilson , who married Andrew Stice in 1789; and their son, James Wilson who married Nancy [last name not proven yet].
Nancy Green Wilson was born January 6, 1771, and married in 1789 to Andrew Stice. They were the parents of 13 children: Robert Elmore Stice, b. 1790 NC; Dianna Stice b July 4, 1792 in NC; Charles C. Stice b February 11, 1795 NC; Sarah [Sally] Stice b January 14, 1797 NC;
Caty Stice b 1799 in NC; Esther Stice b 1801 in KY; Andrew Stice II b 1803 in KY; William Wilson Stice b July 22, 1805 in KY; Nancy Green Stice b September 23, 1807 in KY....the Aunt Nancy Stice Bond mentioned in the beginning of the column.... John Stice b 1809 in KY; David F. Stice b April 13, 1812 in KY; James Watt Stice b 1814 in KY; and a daughter. Dicy, who died in infance. Most of these children, migrated on into Illinois after their marriages and lived and died in Warren County, IL.
Nancy [Wilson] Stice died February 10 1852 and is buried in the Watts Family Cemeteryin Madison County, Il. Her husband, Andrew Stice, died August 18, 1817, and is also buried there.
James Wilson, son of William and Dianna, was born December 6, 1780, and was married about 1803 to Nancy, who is thought to have been a Green but recent research indicates that she possibly was a Haney. This family remained in rutherford County or western Cleveland County. James and Nancy Wilson were the parents of ten children; Thany b March 12, 1804; Cindrella b February 11. 1806; Robert H. b May 22, 1808; Sally b March 12 1811; William Green b December 12, 1813; Nancy A., b July 6, 1816; Mary [Polly] b December 1, 1816; James a., b July 19, 1821; Elizabeth M., b August 27, 1824; and Dianna b February 2, 1828.
There is much family legend about the first William Wilson, much of it passed on to descendants by 'Aunt Nancy' who loved to relate family information and antecdotes. So much has been related that it is hard to separate legend from fact, but one story often related by Aunt Nancy was that her grandfather, William Wilson was a brother to James Wilson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. This story has never been proven no disproven by those researching the Wilson family; however our correspondent, Mrs. West, has not yet found verification to support this story as fact.
The foregoing information of William and Dianna Wilson is far from complete and the research continues

RE: William Wilson
What I have is from Wilson Family history that has been handed down. I'm not sure that some of the dates on the memorials are correct but would like for you to follow the information if you would. All of the following Wilsons were born in Rutherford Co., NC.
My gg-grandfather was William Wilson,1828-1875, see memorial #167228054. He married Sarah Green. Williams father was Robert H. Wilson, 1804-1877, memorial #153279197. Robert's father was William James Wilson, born about 1780 died after 1860, memorial #104870650.
This William James Wilson was the son of the William Wilson in the Will I sent you and from the Wilson Family History that I have this William Wilson in the will was married to Nancy Diana Green.
Your help appreciated & May God Bless
