01--My Uncle James' collection (James Bassett Gwin II), p.30B;

02--Mrs. Barbara A. Smith (nee Underhill)'s snail mail of 25 Jul 2000, below, where she quotes her late husband Roy Lester Smith [notes in green brackets];

03--The old photo album that at one time was owned by Nathaniel Burdine Wilson's granddaughter, Martha Roseanne Gwin Holley Lister, which is now in the possession of her descendant, my double fourth cousin, Barbara Ward.  I transcribed the seventy-four names in the index and added my comments to each: click here to go there, as it contains some important information that ties us to the family of Ezekiel Burdine Wilson.

04--Alabama Census Returns 1820 and An Abstract of Federal Census of Alabama 1830, reprinted from The Alabama Historical Quarterly, Vol. 6, No. 3, Fall Issue, 1944, published by the State Department of Archives and History, LCCC No. 67-28599, ISBN 0-8063-0003-5.  Nathaniel B. Wilson (p. 146) is counted in Limestone Co., AL, in the 1819-1820 census of Alabama with one each white male and white female over 21 and one each white male and white female under 21. This is consistent with my Nathaniel Burdine Wilson's and Jane Jones Wilson's family at the time, the two children being Mary Burdine Wilson (b. 29 Nov 1816) and John Jones Wilson (b. 2 Feb 1819). Further, every other census category has a zero, indicating that they had NO slaves, acres cultivated, hired hands, bales of cotton, average weights, gins, saws, or mills. This would be consistent with my Wilson family at the time, who were likely en route from South Carolina to Dallas County, AL.  Thirdly and all but cementing this this be my Wilson family is the listing on p. 126, also in Limestone County and likely traveling with his brother, of Ezekeel (sic) B. Wilson and wife and son! This is of course consistent with our Ezekiel Burdine Wilson and wife (some first unknown wife, clearly not his second wife Sarah Harrell Rasco, says James R. Rasco) and son Washington Wilson.  The zeros following his name were consistent with Nathaniel's, indicating to me that they were likely traveling together.

05--The 1860 Census of Dallas Co., AL, provided many leads, and now various other census data has helped as well; it is posted throughout and taken primarily from the Ancestry.com website.

06--Two documents regarding the death of Nathaniel B. Wilson--1. a petion to sell NBW's lands for cash to pay his debts, and 2. depositions from two witnesses regarding NBW's personal properties--are transcribed at the above links.

07--Purple notes are from Vital Data from Cemeteries in Dallas Co., Alabama, publ. by the Cent. Ala. Gen. Soc., 1989.

B. himself, first in the 16 Nov 1850 census of Pence's Beat, Dallas Co., where NBW, 58, was living with wife Jane, 56, also of SC, and four Alabama-born sons--W. B., 22; James W., 17; NM, 13; and I.G., 9--and claimed property valued at $2040; and second in the 6 Jul 1860 census of Belvue P.O., Pence Beat, Dallas Co., AL, where N.B. claimed real property valued at $6400 and personal assets of $5000 and was living in residence 311 with Griffin Wilson, age 18, b. in AL, and N.W.

Fascinating Note: Listed in the transcriptions of the Wesley Chapel Cemetery of Orange County, Indiana, are these three people.  How strange is THAT?!

WILSON, Nathaniel B. 1794-1874.
WILSON, Jane, w. of N.B. 1808-1866 ?
WILSON, Wm. S. son of N.B & J. 1837-1864.

Orangeville Township Section 9, T.2 N.-R.1 W. Used Occasionally.

Located in the north east quarter, of the section, Wesley Chapel was first called Bruner’s. It was one of the eight churches, which composed the Orangeville Mission. For several years meeting were held at Shirley schoolhouse, and later at the home of Alfred Bruner. In 1857 a house of worship was built on the Bruner farm. There are a number of graves, a noticeable number being small children with native stone markers without inscriptions. Within the church is a bronze tablet with inscription viz:

"In memory of Lucy Bruner Halbert. Her life was beautiful, her faith large, her death victorious. She loved her Christ and her church, and left to Wesley Chapel a perpetual reminder of her noble life. 1843-1928."

Mrs. Halbert, a daughter of Alfred and Mary Wilson Bruner is buried at Orleans, Indiana.

Isom Gwin (see four lines above) who died in 1853.  From his tombstone, we know that Isom and Mary attended the Protestant Methodist church which we believe was, at the time of his death, located a few miles east of their home in Athens at what became Martins Station. We know that the pastor (of what we believe to be this same church), Rev. John Steadman, who likely preached Isom's funeral and who subsequently endured the death of his own wife, married second Isom's widow, this Mary B. Wilson Gwin.  In this census, Rev. Steadman is now deceased himself, leaving our Mary B. again a widow.  We speculate that now she is living here with the family of her daughter, Mary Jane Gwin Smith, not only for financial protection and encouragement in these postwar/postreconstruction times but to help in the care for her father in his last years. How long this arrangement lasted we don't know, but we do know that her father spent the last months of his life living with his son, Dr. Isham G. Wilson.

And here they are in more detail!

24.01--Mary Burdine Wilson,b. 29 Nov 1816 in SC (according to Uncle James' notes); d. after 12 Nov 1875; bd. Perry Co., AL; m1. Isom Gwin (b. 17 Mar 1817; d. 7 Dec 1853; bd. beside his daughter at Martin Station near the former site of the St. Luke's Episcopal Church--see Note below); 2 known children; (See these and all the album photos online.); m2. John Steadman--See 1850 Dallas Co. Census, John Steadman, Meth. min., age 49, husb. of Ruth, res. #576--Dallas Co., AL, Marriage Record 1818-1918 says 28 Jan 1850 is the marr. date, but this can't be right, as Isom didn't die until 1853--correct year is probably 1856 but could be 1860--probably a mistranscription.)  They were at least married by the Dallas Co. Census on 25 July 1860, as they were living then in dwelling 437 in the community of Orrville; John was  listed as 59, a clergyman (MP) owning $9400 in real property and $30,410 in personal assets, and born in GA; Mary was listed as M.B. Steadman, 43, born in SC.  Living with them is another family, that of J. F. Walker, 27, a farmer with $1000 in land; his wife, E. M. Walker, 26; and their two children, J. B., 5, a son; and L. E., 3, a daughter.
--According to Dallas County Courthouse Probate Court file #65,  on 12 Nov 1875, Mary B. Steadman, widow over 21 years of age, was residing in Perry Co., AL]

25.01--Mary Jane Gwin m. William J. Smith
25.02--Martha Roseann Gwin m1. Mr. Holley; m2. Bryant Brown Lester

24.02--John Jones Wilson, *(see note, bottom of this page) b. 2 Feb 1819 in AL (age 31 in 1850 census and age 40 in the 1860 census); d. before 1875, according to Probate of NB Wilson's estate; bd. prob. in Dallas Co.; m1. 12 Oct 1838 in Dallas Co., AL, to Sarah B. Roark, according to the Record of Marriages in Dallas Co., Alabama, 1816-1849 pg 122 (age 33 in 1850 census); but JJW is listed in 1860 as living with G. M. Wilson, age 23--therefore, did Sarah die as a result of daughter Sarah's birth and thus become the latter's namesake?; JJW was a carpenter with $600 in real estate and $500 in personal assets according to the 1860 census; from the following four sources (1850 and 60 Censuses and 1862 and 1875 Probates for Jesse Roark and N.B. Wilson, respectively), we now believe they had 7 children;--see Shannon Smyrl's notes at http://www.phaenom.com/roark/jesse.htm#top  and the data below. [JMG Note: Evidently Shannon has taken this page off the web. Rats. I wish I'd copied it. Aha! Here's another of her postings from Rootsweb with much if not most of same material she had in the other! I've copied it below and have started reformatting it to correspond to our outline.

State: Alabama
Performed By Title: Justice of the Peace

Putting together all the information below this chart, it now appears to me that John Jones and Sarah "Sallie" B. Roark Wilson had at least the following SEVEN children:

25.07--

--According to Dallas County Courthouse Probate Court file #65,  on 12 Nov 1875, John G. (sic--should be J. for Jones) Wilson, a son of Nathaniel B. Wilson, died before his father N. B. Wilson, and left the following named children who are heirs of N. B. Wilson's estate, all of whom were over 21 years of age and residing in Dallas Co., AL].  To wit:
25.01--Robert Wilson, b. ca. 1846 (age 14 in the 1860 census); d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. unk.; unk. ch.;
25.02--John Wilson, b. ca. 1847 (age 13 in the 1860 census); d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. unk.; unk. ch.;
25.00--Wesley Wilson is not listed in the 1860 census; therefore, Shannon Smyrl's information below must be correct and the Dallas Co. Probate Ct. got some wrong information.
25.03--Osborn Wilson, b. ca. 1851 (age 9 in the 1860 census); d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. unk.; unk. ch.;
25.04--Sarah Jane Wilson, b. ca. 1853 (age 7 in the 1860 census); d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. unk.; unk. ch.;
 
But the 1850 Dallas Co. census shows this family as follows:

718/718 John J. Wilson 31M Farmer  800 AL--Clearly our John Jones Wilson.
Sarah B. [Wilson] 33F SC--Also clearly our Sarah B. Roark Wilson.

Wm. J. [Wilson] 9 M AL--If they were married in 1838, then it would make sense that the firstborn would not have been born in 1846, but rather closer to 1839 or 40, as was this William J.
James F. [Wilson] 6 M AL--Second-born?
E. R. [Wilson] 4 M AL--This must be the above-mentioned Robert--first name Ezekiel?
J. R. [Wilson] 2 M AL--This must be the above-mentioned John--middle name Roark?
J. W. [Wilson] 2 2M AL--And this would be the above-mentioned Wesley--first name also John.  The same first names and the same ages here indicate to me that these are likely twins!

However, according to Shannon Smyrl's information on Shelia Spracklen Lee's website, the heirs of the estate of Jesse V. Roark and Nancy (Ann Morris) Roark are listed as follows (see number three):

1861 Estate of Jesse and Nancy Roark. Richard H. Roark, admr. Heirs are:

1. Sophronia, wife of Laughlin Campbell, Dallas Co.

2. Walter Roark, son of D.H. Roark, dec'd. [John Gwin Note: D. H. Roark is Drury Hampton Roark who m. Mary Gwin (b. 1817 in Dallas Co., AL) on 27 Dec. 1838 in Dallas Co., prob. Cahawba--this son, Walter, was killed two years later in the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg.]

3. Wm., Robt., John Wesley, and Sarah Wilson, heirs of Sarah [nee Roark]Wilson, dec'd, who was wife of J. J. Wilson.

4. G. T. Roark, Wasataw Co. (sic--this has to be a phonetic misspelling of Ouachita Co.), Ark.

5. Lucinda, wife of Wm. Blann.

6. Two minor children of Washington Roark, living in Washatau Co. (sic--this has to be a misspelling of Ouachita Co.), Ark.

7. Mary, wife of G. H. Ridgeway, Dallas County

In 1862, R. H. Roark [above-named administrator Richard H. Roark] gives names of heirs as follows.
1. Gideon Roark [#4 above?]
2. Lucinda Blann [#5 above?]
3. Rachel E. Hanshaw
4. Mary Ridgeway [#7 above?]
5. R. H. Roark [Interesting!  Instead of naming #2 above, the administrator names himself!]
6. The children of Mrs. Sophronia Campbell, viz., Cornelia Jane, Mary, Martha, Candish, and John Campbell, all of Dallas County. [#1 above, amended due to Sophie's death?]
7. The children of Sarah Wilson, viz.: Robt., John Wesley, "Osmon", and Sallie [#3 above]

Dear John,
Thank you so much for the information that you sent.  I am searching for the father of two brothers who migrated into Hinds Co. MS in the early 1830's.  the brothers were James Wilson Farr and George Washington Farr. I believe there was a third brother named Charles Kavanaugh Farr.  Due to the names of their children, I strongly feel that they were from the Ephraim Farr line. Your information listed Farrs and Wilsons which I had to check out. Ephraim Farr's daughter married a James Wilson and Ephraim's good friend was also a Wilson.  Thanks again for taking time to answer my query.
Sincerely, Pamela

Hello John,
I have found a little more information on James Washington WILSON and Isham Griffin WILSON.
I don't know if you already have this information or not.
James Washington Wilson married Elizabeth McCullen in Dallas County on 29 OCT 1857.
They were enumerated on page 785 of the 1860 Dallas County census, they had one son, M. E., age 1.
I can't find any of this family on a later census. James might have died in the War Between the States.
There was a James WILSON in CO. A 4th Ala. Infantry. This company was raised in Dallas County.
 
I found an Antonett ADAMS on page 266A of the 1850 Dallas County census age 2, and the head
of the household was John D. ADAMS, physician, with his wife, Arenath. This same family was
enumerated on page 908 of the 1860 Dallas County census, it lists Antonett as 10 years old.
On the 1870 Dallas County census A. ADAMS (widow of John D.) is head of the house and Isham
WILSON and his wife Amanda are in the household. There was no Amanda ADAMS on either
the 1850 or 1860 Dallas County census.
Is it possible that Amanda A. is actually Amanda Antoinette ADAMS? Do you have a death date
for Antoinette? I found where an Isham G WILSON married a Lovina LOCKHART in Perry County
on 11 JUL 1883. He was again a widower by the 1900 Marengo County census, ED 60 sheet 15B,
stamped page number 64B. In the household with him were 3 of his sons: Bernice G.age 27,
Leonce age 18, and Ely R. age 13.
Bernice G. and Leonce Russell became lawyers, but I can't find Ely R. after the 1900 census.
Leonce registered for the World War I draft in Marengo County.
I hope everything is going well for you.
Best Regards,
Mark Hall


24.09--Samuel Rutherford Wilson, b. 21 Apr 1835 (according to Uncle James' notes); d. 25 Aug 1842 (age 7) ; bd. unk.;--Samuel Rutherford Wilson was not mentioned as an heir in Nathaniel B. Wilson's probate proceedings since he died as a child 32 years before NBW died.


24.10-Nathaniel Marion Wilson, b. 3 Nov 1837 (according to Uncle James' notes) (age 13 in 1850 Census); d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. prob. never; unk. ch.;

In July of 1860, a Nathaniel Wilson, age 22, was recorded in the 1860 Bibb Co. Census in Oakleyville (now Oakley?), AL, living in the home of William and Roe (Wilson) Gwin, Nathaniel Marion Wilson's brother-in-law and sister, respectively.

Nathaniel Marion Wilson was not mentioned as an heir in Nathaniel B. Wilson's probate proceedings; therefore, it is assumed NMW never married nor had children and died before N. B. Wilson--perhaps died in the Civil War?

Hi John, Hope you and your family have been doing well.

I found something on our Wilsons that I thought you might be interested in. I have a subscription to Genealogylibrary.com. I noticed today that they have added several of the Family Tree Maker CD's to the website that are free with the subscription.  Here is what I found on Isham Griffin Wilson that is on the CD #507, "Vital Records:  Directory of Deceased American Physicians, 1804-1929:"

Isham Griffin Wilson
Died May 17, 1920 in Selma, AL
Born: 1844
Type of practice:  Allopath
State/year of licenses:  AL, 1878
Places/dates of practice:  Demopolis, AL
Medical school:  Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans: Univ. Med. Dept., 1868, (G)
Journal of the American Medical Association citation: 74: 1729
Cause of demise:  heart disease

Do you know what allopath is?  I wonder if we could get some kind of record on him from Tulane?

I guess that's all that I have to add.  I just got back from picking my mother up from her home in Arkansas. I took my two daughters to the beach at Orange Beach, Alabama, earlier in the week for four nights, and I am worn out. Talk to you later.

John, I'm going to do my best not to overwhelm you with info. But here goes....

Found this query in the Central AL Gen. Soc. quarterly Vol 18 no. 1, 1992 (by the way this society abstracts and publishes Dallas Co., AL info., dues $20/yr) PO Box 125, Selma, AL 36702-0125. "William Gwin of Wilsonville, Shelby Co., AL married Rosanna (R.C.J.) Wilson in Dallas Co.,AL 5-13-1842. Both buried Wilsonville cem. They were in Dallas Co. in 1850, Bibb Co. in 1860, and Shelby Co. in 1870. He was the son of John Gwin of Dallas Co. John Gwin was living in the household of William Gwin in the 1870's and died there in 1877, buried Wilsonville Cem. Rosanna Gwin was a daughter of Nathaniel B. Wilson of Dallas Co. who died there in 1875. William and Rosanna Gwin had a son who married Ida Eliza Bassett who was born in England, and both are buried in the Wilsonville Cemetery. William and Ida Bassett had three sons, James B., John W., and William S.  I would like to contact their descendants. My g.g. grandmother was Mary B. Wilson and wife of Isom Gwin, mother of Mary Jane Gwin, wife of Wm. J. Smith of Dallas Co., AL. My g. grdpts, Mary B. Wilson Gwin and Rosanna Wilson Gwin were sisters. They were the daughters of Nathaniel B. Wilson who was in Dallas Co. ca. 1820 and died there in 1875.

I have no proof, but I believe that Isom Gwin and Wm. Gwin were brothers and the sons of John Gwin who lived around Orrville, AL and Old Cahaba in the 1850-60's in Dallas Co., AL....." Roy L. Smith, 205 McCurdy, Crowley, TX 76036.

I wrote to Mr. Smith about a year ago, and his widow was kind enough to reply.  I did NOT ask her what happened to his research on the Gwin/Guins. Thought you might be interested. In case you do not know, you will have to consider variant spellings of Guin/Gwin.

John, following is the information that I have in my files.

MARY RASCO was the d/o EZEKIEL BURDINE WILSON & SARAH HARRELL RASCO d/o JESSE HARRELL RASCO & ELIZABETH JOHNSON.  I believe Mary's full name to be MARY ANN ELIZABETH WILSON b. 12 Dec. 1833/34 Dallas Co., Ala. d. 27 April 1874 Scott Co., MS.

She married 1st. WILLIAM EPHRAIM RASCO, 2nd. JOSEPH S. DRAPERS, 3rd. JAMES LaFAYETTE RASCO. She was in Philadelphia, Neshoba Co., Ms. in 1870 (M593-R741) with 5 children, William Taylor Rasco, Ezekiel B., Rasco, James Marion Rasco, & Martha Tullen Rasco. A JAMES WILSON lived close by with his wife, ELIZABETH & EZEKIEL RASCO age 12 living with them. A WILLIAM J. GENTRY lived close by also with his wife, AMANDA, and a daughter with a JOHN RASCO. Each of the RASCO children was listed as FARM LABORER. See page 375, dwelling No. 1286 Family No. 1286.

MARY WILSON & JAMES L. RASCO issues: RICHMOND AUSTIN RASCO & JAMES RASCO.

AMANDA WILSON =\ I show that an AMANDA A. married DOCTOR ISHAM GRIFFIN WILSON s/o NATHANIEL BURDINE WILSON. NATHANIEL died in his son's home after 5 years of illness.

#27: NETTIE WILSON I have not found yet.
#25: TEXAS WILSON, I am still searching for this name for I have seen it in my files somewhere.

I will continue to search for more info. Write me back and let me know what you think.

Ron, her husband, travels a lot but looks like he may be in Washington State for another 2 years. Richard lives here in Waco, Texas as we do. He is in the sheet rock business. Robert has 2 children, Nia Peeples and Cynthia Dawn Peeples Boon, Patricia has one son living, Erick Jason, lost one (Sean Michael Kemp Lee) a few years ago.  Richard has 2 daughters, Teri Lynn Peeples Stewlow and Katherine Tammatha Peeples.

If you ever watch "WALKER, TEXAS RANGER", Nia plays Sydney Cooke. She has been in this business for years. Cynthia lives in Aspen; her husband is into communications. Erick and his father, Ron, are involved with telephone communications. Teri is a housewife; her husband works for a Glass & Morrow Company in Arizona, and Katherine is with a company that keeps tabs on the rest homes.

Greetings!
I stumbled across your website tonight - what a great setup! I am researching my Wilson line right now, and am stuck on a John Wilson from Alabama.

I'm sort of going on some speculation here, but I THINK he might be related to the John Jones WILSON you have listed...

Do you happen to have any more information on John Jones' children?  I have found a Jones Wilson listed in the Dunklin County, Missouri 1870 census, living in the same household as a Charles Wilson, age 27, born in AL.  Jones is listed as being 52 years old, and has a daughter aged 22 named Sallie (born in AL).  He is also living with a child by the name of Harevy JONES, aged 9, born in AR.   There are others in the household as well; just wanted to keep it simple for the time being.

My relative is a John H. Wilson, born around 1837 in AL and living in close proximity to this household.  I'm wondering if this isn't a son or something.  Any information you can provide would be amazingly helpful, even if it is simply to rule something out.

Thanks a bunch, and I enjoyed the info on nibs!
Adria Wilson

John Gwin NOTE:  I have condensed this information as follows:

I have found a

Jones Wilson age 52, b. ca. 1818, listed in the Dunklin Co., MO 1870 census, living in the same household as a

Charles Wilson, age 27, born ca. 1843 in AL.

Sallie Wilson, age 22, b. ca. 1848 in AL, d/o Jones Wilson.

He is also living with a child by the name of Harvey JONES, aged 9, born in AR.

Salem Baptist Church Cemetery ...

Thank you Gene Allred for donating this cemetery list. If you have additions or corrections, please let Marsha know.

Location: Kellis Store Loop or Kellis Store Rd/Gholson Rd, off of Kellis Store Road, about 3.6 miles from Lynville, MS

Directions: From Highway 397 at Lynville, turn onto Kellis Store Road (located beside Cumberland Store), travel about 3.4 miles
on Kellis Store Road, turn left onto Kellis Store Loop (or) Kellis Store-Ghoulson Rd -- each of these roads meet and loop back into Kellis Store Road. Salem Baptist Church is located on one side of the road & the cemetery is on the other -- about 1/10 - 2/10ths of a mile off of Kellis Store Road. (Submitted 1/23/2000 by Carolann Arthur.)

[John M. Gwin Note:  I visited this cemetery in July 2006. It is clear to me now that these are indeed family--descendants of Ezekiel Burdine Wilson. See more at their new page.]

These in red are clearly Kathy Kemp's and Neil Weise's ancestors. This EBW's parents are Washington and Mahaley Wilson. These eleven comprise all the Wilsons listed at this site. The ones listed in black below could be descendants of EB and Augusta, but this is speculation as of this date: 5 Dec 2004.

Wilson, Att H.
Dec. 28, 1887 - July 22, 1968
 
New info as of May 2006: This is Att Hampton Wilson, according to Kelly Wilson's email, above. Kelly says her husband Scott is Att's great-grandson. The dates look to me to be right for Att to be Ezekiel Burdine Wilson's grandson, but this is certainly still speculation. Nevertheless, that Kelly, Scott, and Scott's dad, Bennett, think that all these people are related is all very encouraging to me that it might in fact be true.

Further, that his middle name is Hampton brings to mind Drury Hampton Roark who married Mary Gwin, John and Jane Gwin's oldest daughter.

John,
It would seem I am researching the same surnames in almost the same location.

My ancestor is Elias Henderson Guinn-Guin-Gwynn (CSA) who is buried in Jackson Co., AL.  James, his son, married into the Jackson Co., Chandler line and, as a member of the Chandler Family Association, I am researching the Guinn line as well.

The Roark-Rork line comes in to the Brown family line of Rowan Co. to Washington Co., TN, to Jackson Co. AL  from John Roark-Rork, as a daughter of John Roark married David Brown, descendent of Johann Jacob Brown the Wagon maker, during the Revolutionary War.  My work is in Jackson Co., AL, Washington Co., TN, and Rowan Co., NC, so far.  I just currently found John Roark-Rork's will dated 1792 and have requested a copy from Washington Co., TN. 

If you recognize any of these names, I would love to converse.  Forgive my office email address--breaktime, and scanning Roarks--my home email address is Catherine2447@aol.com

Catherine King


1._--Elias Henderson Guinn-Guin-Gwynn (CSA), b. unk.; bd. Jackson Co., AL;

My Roark line goes back to Jesse Roark born NC. I believe his father was Barnabus Roark of Stokes Co, NC, Surry Co., NC, and Greenville Dist. SC

The names of Jesse and Lucinda appear in various of the Roark lines connected to Stokes Co, NC; Surry Co., NC; Ashe Co., NC as well as Roark lines in Va., Ky, and Tenn.

The following are the first two proven generations in my Roark line.

14. Jesse Roark and Nancy Ann Morris

Nancy Ann Morris was the daughter of Drury and Rachel Morris. She was born in S.C. on 18 Dec. 1884. She married Jesse Roark (18 Oct. 1783 - 23 Nov. 1861) in Greenville County, S.C. ca. 1805. Sometime between 1810 and 1820 Nancy Anne and Jesse moved to Dallas County Alabama. They as well as Nancy's mother Rachel Morris and her sister Sarah Hall (Mrs. Richard Hall) are listed in the 1820 Census of that county.

Issue of Nancy Ann Morris and Jesse Roark:

141. Sarah B. Roark,b. S.C. ca. 1805 (or 1808); d. bef. 1861; m. John J. Wilson, 12 Oct. 1838, Dallas Co., AL; at least 4 ch.;

1412 John Wesley Wilson, b. ca. 1847 AL;
1413 Osborn Wilson, b. ca. 1851 AL;
1414 Sarah J. Wilson, b. 15 Dec 1854, d. 27 Dec 1928;
142. Saphronia Roark, b. S.C. ca. 1810, m. Laughlin Campbell; at least 8 ch.;
1421 Sarah A. Campbell, b. ca. 1837 Ala.

1425 Martha Campbell, b. ca. 1846 Ala.
1426 Lenora Campbell, b. ca. 1847 Ala.
1427 Candish Campbell, b. ca. 1852 Ala.
1428 John Campbell, b. ca. 1855 Ala.
143. Drury Hampton Roark, b. 1812 S.C.; d. ca. 1846 Dallas Co., AL; m. 27 Dec. 1838 Dallas Co., AL, to Mary Guinn; at least 1 ch.;
1431 Walter Roark. Walter Roark enlisted 10 April 1861 at Cahaba, Ala. He
was killed at the battle of Gettysburg 1 July 1863.
144. John Washington Roark, b. S.C. ca. 1813 S.C., m. Martha Jane Mitchell 26 Oct 1854, Calhoun, Co., Ark., d. 18 April 1860 Calhoun County, Ark.
144 John Washington Roark

John Washington Roark b. ca. 1813 S.C. was the son of Jesse Roark and Nancy Ann Morris. He moved from Dallas County, Alabama to Dallas County, Arkansas by 1850. In the 1850 Census Dallas County, Arkansas shows him residing in the household of his brother Gideon Thomas Roark. By October of 1854 he is in Cahoun County, Arkansas where he married Martha Jane Mitchell on 26 Oct 1854. Martha Jane was born ca. 1840 the 1860 Census shows Alabama while the 1870 Census shows Arkansas. Their issue:

1441 Richard Alexander
1442 Mary Lucinda (Mollie)

The 1860 Mortality Schedules of Arkansas shows that John Washington died from pneumonia in April of 1860. On 31 Dec. 1868 Martha Jane Roark married James B. F. Boyce, Calhoun County, Arkansas. The 1870 Census of Ouachita County. Arkansas shows

Boyce, Jas, 25 M W Farmer Arkansas
Boyce, Mattie, 32 F W Arkansas
Roark, Richard,14 M W Arkansas
Roark, Mollie,11 F W Arkansas
The death record of James V. Boyce, filed in Cherokee County, Texas shows that he died Nov. 9, 1904 from malaria. _Newspaper Obituaried 1836-1908 Cherokee County, Texas_ shows J. V. Boyce of Mixon died in 1904 at the age of 62 yrs.

The same reference shows Mrs. M. J. Boyce died here 23 Nov. 1907 at the age of 67 years. Both Martha Jane and Grandpa Boyce were buried in the orchard behind the William Eugene Webb place.

145. Gideon Thomas Roark, b. 18 Dec. 1817 S.C., m. Caroline Wilson 4 June 1840
145 Gideon Thomas Roark

Gideon Thomas Roark was the son of Nancy Ann Morris and Jesse Roark. He was born 18 Dec. 1817. He married Caroline Wilson 4 June 1840. Their issue according to Wilma Humphreys- Newton:

1451 Sarah E. (Sally) Roark, b. 14 Oct. 1844, m. Joseph E. Lockridge 6 Feb. 1868, d. 8 Jan. 1902. Their issue included

Mary E. Roark, b ca 1869 Pro C page 94; and probably
Gideon S. Lockridge Roark, b. 12 Aug. 1881, d. 17 May 1951 m Fannie E.; and
Saphronia E. Roark, b. 14 Mar. 1883, d. 28 Nov. 1971. (Does not fit with what Mollie Grant has)
1452 Jesse or James Roark, (died young)
1453 Elijah Roark, (died young)

Caroline died and Gideon Married 2nd Mrs. Emily Manor Dunn, daughter of A. L. Manor. Their issue:

1454 Alford Crockett Roark, b. ca. 1841 Ala., m. Alice Dunn, his 1st cousin, 20 Aug. 1874. Their issue included

Wm. Roark, b. 21 June 1875, d. 16 Nov 1918 did not marry;
John S. Roark, b. 10 July 1877, d. 2 April 1946;
Frank S. Roark, b.ca. 1879, m. Cora Green;
Richard (Jack) Roark, d. Hobbs N. Mex. ca.1960 at the age of 77;
Bessie Roark, who married a Mr. Bruce;
Versia Roark, b. 29 Dec. 1890, d. 21 Dec. 1962, m. Allen D. (Pat) Primm; and
Norvis S. Roark, (The Man) 1894-1956. *
1455 Redy A. Roark, b. ca. 1842 Ark. *
1456 Sarah A. Roark, b. ca. 1843-46 Ark * and **
1457 William I. Roark, b. ca. 1845-47 Ark. * and **
1458 Pat E. Roark, b. ca. 1847 Ark. *
1459 Elija T. Roark, b. ca. 1848 Ark. *
145? Infant Roark, 3/12 1850 * James b ca 49 ** Thos A. b ca 1849 ***
145? Alford Roark, b. ca.1850 Ark. **
145? Alexander Roark, b. ca. 1851 Ark. ** Franklin b Ca 51 *** (Tobe)
145? Richard Roark, b. ca. 1856 Ark. ** (Age right to be his nephew R.A. Roark)
145? Gideon T Roark, b. Dec. 1859 ** and ***

* taken from 1850 Census
** taken from 1860 Census
*** taken from 1870 Census

(Evidently Gideon Thomas lost a number of children for children listed in one census do not appear in the next or if they do it is under a different name.)

Wilma Humphries-Newton clains Gideon and Emily had three children Crockett who married Alice Dunn, Tobe who did not marry and Gideon Jr. who married Nancy Hayes. She further claims that Sally married Joseph Lockridge.
Marriages of Calhoun County, Ark. shows the marriage of Joseph E. Lockridge to Sarah E. Roark 6 Feb. 1868. Some of the information furnished by Wilma Humphries-Newton is definitely incorrect. At this point I cannot tell the fact from the fiction.

Gideon died ca. 9 Dec. 1877 Calhoun Co., Ark. (See Pro C. page 66)

146. Lucinda Roark, b. Ala. ca 1821, m. Wm. Young H. Blann 12 Jan. 1839
146 Lucinda Roark

Lucinda was the daughter of Nancy ann Morris and Jesse Roark. She was born Ala ca 1821. Lucinda married William Young Henry Blann 17 Jan. 1839. Their issue includes

1461 William Henry Junior, b, 14 Feb. 1840, m. Miriam Gosa 15 Nov. 1861, d. 31 July 1912 C.S.A. Miriam war b. 6 June 1846, d. 28 Feb. 1928.

1462 Mary Elizabeth b. 1842, d. 1854
1463 Richard Thomas b. 31 May 1846, m. Amanda Stafford (b. 1848, d. 31 Dec. 1923) d. 14 Mar. 1912 C.S.A.
1464 James Silas b. 1853, d. 1867
1465 Emma b. ca. 1855 Ark. (See 1870 Census)

Alabama Notes pp. 4 and 5 by England indicates that William H. Blann had six children.

William Henry Blann died 30 Sept. 1854 Calhoun County, Arkansas. Lucinda died after 1910. She was living with her son Wm. H. Jr. at the time of the 1910 Census.

The Blanns, Ridgeways, and Roarks ( Gideon Thomas and his family as well as John Washington Roark) moved from Dallas County, Ala to Arkansas between 1840 amd 1850.

147. Rachel E. Roark, b. 1823, m. Warner L. Hanshaw 29 June 1846
147 Rachel E. Roark

Rachel E. Roark was the daughter of Nancy Ann Morris and Jesse Roark. She was born Dallas Co., Ala ca. 1823. Rachel married Warner L. Hanshaw 29 June 1846 or 2 July 1846. Their issue:

1471 Elizabeth b. ca. 1847 Ala.
1472 Sarah Frances b. ca. 1849 Ala.
1473 ????? J. b. ca. 1853 Ala.
1474 M. C. b. ca. ca. 1855 Ala.
1475 M. E. b. ca, 1859 Ala.
1476 Gideon W. b. ca. 1860 Ala.

In 1850 Warner L. Hanshaw is listed as head of household Dallas Co., Ala., but by 1860 Rachel is listed as the head of household, thus I presume Warner had died by that time.

148. Mary Roark, b. Ala. ca. 1828, m G. E. Ridgeway 21 Mar. 1861
148 Mary Roark

Mary Roark was the daughter of Nancy Ann Morris and Jesse Roark. She was born ca. ca. 1828 Dallas County, Ala. She married G. E. (Gibb) Ridgeway 21 Mar. 1861. According to Wilma Humphries-Newton Mary came with the party from Alabama to Arkansas.

149. Richard Hampton Roark, b. Ala. ca. 1829, d. 29 May 1900
Nancy Ann Morris died 14 Sept. 1854. Nancy Ann, Jesse and their son Richard Hampton are buried in Vernon Church Cemetery, Dallas County, Alabama.
Sincerely,
Shannon Smyrl

Hi John,                                            
I believe we may be related somehow, but I'm not exactly sure of where we tie in.

You have an Att H. Wilson listed somewhere in the geneology as descendant of Ezekiel Burdine Wilson. Was he the son of Ezekiel (2) and Augusta, or was he their grandson?

Att & Mamie Wilson
are my great-grandparents. I am fairly sure this is the same man, because there were not too many people named Att even in those days.

I'm not 100% sure I'm getting this in the right order, but I believe Att & Mamie had at least one more daughter, Eddie Francess, and at least three sons -- Arby Bennett (my grandfather), Burbon, and James (d. 2002).  I believe James & Eddie Francess were quite a bit younger than the other two, and it's possible that the Mark Wilson you have listed as born in 1972 is the son of James & Flora Wilson. Arby married Ruby Lucille Dunn, and most of our branch takes after the Dunn side, but I did see a resemblance in some of the old photos to some of my cousins. If we are related by Att, I can also fill in more of the tree.

I have  a few questions, too:

1) Could we put together a DVD of our family history or an online version of it, and film where the old homesteads would have been, churches, cemeteries....and show where the descendants are now, what they are doing, etc.?

2)My grandpa's brother and one of his sons are named Burbon. I've heard it's a derivitive of an old family name; could that name have been Burdine? And, if so, how would they get Burbon from that?                

3) Another thing I have often heard is that we are somehow tied or related to former President Woodrow Wilson; he was from Virginia, and you have traced our Wilson relatives back to South Carolina--pretty close. Have you heard anything about that?

Thank you for any light you can shed on this.
God bless,
Tonya F. Wilson <><
