<-- Back to William Reeves and Susan Hunter <-- Back to John B Wilson and Jane Reaves

I (Will Johnson wjhonson@aol.com) received some pages, unsourced, from another descendent of John and Jane. These papers purport to be part of "A letter dated 24 Nov 1950 Wilson Family Tree written by Uncle Jack (Stonewall Jackson) Wilson (1870-) to Uncle Wade (Wade Hampton) Wilson (1874-)"

The portion I was sent goes like this "... John and Jane Wilson was married on the 14th day of November AD 1816 in the state of Missouri. John Wilson and formerly Jane Reaves, were both born in the state of Kentucky, the former in Green County and the latter in Christian County. The subject of this memoir-memento was born on Green River in the aforesaid state, on the 26th day of October AD 1791. Jane Reaves alias Jane Wilson was born on the 16th day of April AD 1799. John Wilson remained a resident of his native Kentucky, Green County on Green River until the year AD 1810 and removed from thence to St Frances River in the territory of Missouri and there remained until the 16th day of October AD 1817 from whence he removed to Big Red River in the Territory of Arkansas."
