My grandfather, Albert A. Wilson was born 1-7-1866
in Du Quoin, Il to Archibald and Jane Woodward Wilson.
His parents divorced, and at age 7 he moved to Texas
Co., Mo. with his father. A brother, Frank T. Wilson,
stayed in Il. with their mother, Jane. Some years
later, Jane came to MO and married Bill Chilton, then
supposedly went back to IL at some point. I believe
Frank Wilson was born 2-3-1869, and married someone
named Cassie and had two children. Archibald married
someone named Druciller and had one daughter, Della.
Albert grew up, married first Clementime Shoemate, and
had twelve children. She died 11-11-1908, and in 1910
Albert married my grandmother, Cora Blanche Weese.
They had 2 children, a son who died in infancy, and my
mother, Ena Iola Wilson, born 11-1-1912. Archibald
died 9-29-1920, and grandfather Albert died 12-12-1925
in Shannon Co MO. I have a letter dated 12-31-1918
from Frank Wilson of Willisville, IL to his father,
Archibald. Also have a letter dated 1-10-1919 from
Archibald to son Albert. Also have a "letter edged in
black" from Della to Albert after the death of
Archibald. I would love to find relatives to share
