Does anyone know anything about a P.W. Gorrell who may have settled near
Pinckneyville in the 1850's and even served as a judge for a while? If so,
do you know why he disappeared from Perry County and where he went? I

that they moved to Mississippi, but I am not sure. I would appreciate any

I am still looking for info on G grandfather Manuel Houston Wilson and wife
Elizabeth Welch. They lived in Duquoin before 1906 and ran a general store
and some coal mines. He had two bothers, Josiah and Peter. The father was
Peter Wilson and mother was Mrs. Maria Rea Wilson who had been married
before. I don't anything about the Rea name. Houston was born around 1851.
Parents died young and Peter was reared by a Harrison family. Is there a
connection? In 1906 Houston and family moved to Ft . Meade Fl. and opened
several businesses. Do these names mean anything to anyone in the area. ?
Thank You , Earl Hall, Pegeon Ffforge, Tn.
