Sources:
01.  My late uncle, James Basset Gwin II, turned over to me his genealogical research before he died, and this Dr. I. G. Wilson was shown to be a younger brother of my gg-grandmother, RoseAnn Carlisle Jones Wilson Gwin.
02.  U. S. Census data (cited throughout this page) has revealed many important details.
03.  The late Barbara Smith, widow of my late cousin Roy Lester Smith, sent me copies of several legal documents Roy had collected, all related to this Isham.
04.  Tulane University School of Medicine records provided insight into Isham's studies there in allopathy.
05.  Some years ago, I, John Gwin, visited the cemetery in Demopolis, Alabama, where he and some of his family are buried; I took some of the photos there that are posted below.
06.  Cousins Patty Marshall and the late Kathy Kemp provided other important items detailed below.
07.  Various Findagrave.com memorials (cited throughout this page) have also provided important data.
08.  And in Dec 2014, I confirmed from their Facebook.com pages that my cousins Judy Milner Nelson and John Milner, Jr., are indeed alive and well!

CSA Military Service of Isham G. Wilson

His tombstone says he served in Co. C 35 Tex Cav CSA, and his CSA pension application lists him as "Isham G. Wilson, application date/place: 29 Sep 1917/Marengo Co., AL, age 76, pension file no. 7385, Sgt., Co. C, Brown's Cav. (Texas)"

[JMGwin Note: I believe that IGW's nephew, Isham Griffin Gwin (s/o Wm. and Roe Wilson Gwin--she is IGW's sister) was named for this IGW; IGW was 17 years old when IGG was born]

Kathy Kemp's source on my Rasco page (click Amanda's link below to go there) says that Isham was a doctor (confirmed below) and that his father, Nathaniel Burdine Wilson, lived in their home the last five years of Nathaniel's life; Patty Marshall Taylor, descendant of Ezekiel Monroe Wilson, brother 24.05 above, sent the following (rcvd. 16 Mar 2001): from CD #507, "Vital Records:  Directory of Deceased American Physicians, 1804-1929" :

Isham Griffin Wilson
Died May 17, 1920 in Selma, AL
Born:  1844 (conflicts with 1 Mar 1841 date, above)
Type of practice:  Allopath
State/year of licenses:  AL, 1878
Practice/specialties:  Demopolis, AL
Medical school:  Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans:  Univ. of LA Med. Dept., 1868, (G)
Journal of the American Medical Association citation:  74:1729
Cause of demise:  heart disease



Below: Isham's gravestone at Riverside Cem., Demopolis, Marengo Co., AL. Its transcription is beneath the photo. It has no dates showing, so I believe it was broken off in an act of vandalism, then reset, and that the dates can probably be seen if one carefully digs a little below the surface of the ground.

The Pittsburgh Press, March 28, 1942, p. 17
"Junior Aviator Squadron"

     Capt. John Milner, 26-year-old pilot for Transcontinental & Western Air, Inc., launched his aviation careen in 1936 as an aerial butter and egg man and the "flying newsboy of Arizona."
     Folloing his graduation from the Ryan School of Aeronautics at San Diego, Cal., early in 1936, Milner purchased a 7-place plane and flew to Tucson, Ariz., where he signed a contract with the Citizen to deliver 20,000 copies of the newspaper daily to ten Southeastern Arizona towns.  The newspapers were dropped in pouches at airports or other designated places to waiting carriers. Milner usually descended to within 25 or 30 feet of the ground so the sacks would not burst from the impact.
     But his air service was not limited to newspapers.  He carried passengers and freight, even butter and eggs, on his daily 400-mile flights, landing only when it was necessary to deliver or pick up freight.
     After operating this service for almost a year, Milner, in 1937, became a pilot for the Grand Canyon Airlines and later the same year accepted employment as sales representative for 'Ryan planes in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Utah, and the State of Washington.
     In 1938 Milner became co-pilot for Catalina Airlines, flying from Los Angeles to the vacation resort off the coast of California.  He resigned this position in May of 1939 to become a TWA co-pilot and checked out as a captain in July of 1941. He frequently flies one of the TWA transports over territory where he began his career as an aerial newsboy.
     On March 23, 1940, he married TWA Hostess Katherine Wilson who in June of 1939 was crowned "Miss American Aviation" at the National Air Carnival, Birmingham, Ala.  They reside at 1919 Olathe Blvd., Kansas City, Kan.
     Captain Milner was born at Bowie, Ariz., and attended high school at Willcox, Ariz.  Following his graduation he attended the University of Arizona and then enrolled in the Ryan School of Aeronautics in 1935.  He soloed the same year.
     Model plane building is the flier's hobby.  At present he is building a model of a B-17 four-engine bomber in his workshop.  He has flown a half-million miles.

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 Co. on 29 OCT 1857. They were enumerated on page 785 of the 1860 Dallas Co. census; they had one son, M. E. WILSON, 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 Co.
 
I found an Antoinette ADAMS on p. 266A of the 1850 Dallas Co. census age 2, and the head of the household was John D. ADAMS, physician, with his wife, Arenath. This same family was enumerated on p. 908 of the 1860 Dallas Co. census; it lists Antoinette as 10 years old.  On the 1870 Dallas Co. 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 Co. 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 Co. on 11 Jul 1883. He was again a widower by the 1900 Marengo Co. census, ED 60 sheet 15B, stamped p. no. 64B. In the household with him were 3 of his sons: Bernice G., 27, Leonce, 18, and Ely R., 13. Bernice G. and Leonce Russell became lawyers, but I can't find Ely R. after the 1900 census. Leonce registered for the WWI draft in Marengo Co.

I hope everything is going well for you.
Best regards,
Mark Hall

John,
Here is what I found: all in Lot #43, Riverside Cemetery, Demopolis, Marengo Co., AL:

1. J. F. Wilson b. Jan 27,  '75 d. Sept 29,  '91;
2. G. W. Wilson b. Aug 9, '78 d. Dec 31, '96 (that is the way the dates were listed);
3. L. M. Wilson b. Aug 1, 1884 d. Feb 17, 1896;
4. E. R. Wilson b. Feb 5,  '86 d. Sep 25, 1900;

It appears that these four were on the same marker, front, back, and both sides.

5. Isham G. Wilson Co. C 35 Tex Cav CSA (no dates)
6. Bernice G. Wilson b. Mar 5, 1872 d. Jan 31, 1941; d. age 68+
