So I'm working the paper trail from this end, and the BIGY at the other. I have a Joseph Wilson B 1824 in SC on the paper trail, and this at the end of the DNA trail. I'm hoping my brother will test soon, and I'm trying to find other male descendants in my line who could test. Anything else I can do?
I thought I'd throw this in. It is a section of the Voter Index for Sacramento County, California from 1866 showing some of the "W" surnames. Along with my great great grandfather John Sroaf Wilson (born in Tennessee in 1826) there's a Mark Willson born in Poland and a John Anderson Wilson born in Sweden. A search of the 3 pages with Wilsons turned up two Wilsons from Denmark, two more from Sweden, one more from Poland, and one each from Ireland, Scotland and England. The rest of the Wilsons were from the Mid-West, East, South and even one born in Oregon in 1842. My point being that not all Wilson lines originated in the British Isles.
Wilson admins, thank you for grouping we four Wilson/Ramsey/Barnett together, but I do think that we need to be group together with kit 54449 Robert Wilson separately, as we are all E-V22 and downstream and match up more closely with him.

"There are at least dozen's of unrelated Wilson families. So, yes, SOME Wilson's are Scottish (both northern and southern), many more are not Scottish."
Seems to be a concern among the admins in a surname project whether I am related to their surname, so included this graphic to show that I am related to a Jessica, and a Roger Wilson.
From FTDNA Montgomery blog, felt it had to do a lot with surname Wilson. Felt it would be worth sharing with group.

Being the first Scottish Wilson in this project way back when we only had about twenty members, I have seen it grow and grow over the years. I wonder if it is time to slip the project into major haplogroups for R, I, and J etc.?
This the family of James Canniff Wilson in Glenora Ontario Canada. His father Stewart Wilson was born in Johnstown, New York 1795. I am researching with Ancestry PRO GEN to learn how back I can go. Stewart's (Stuart) father presumed to be Charles Wilson. One of the children pictured is my grandfather on the far right.
Looking for the father of John Charles Wilson, born either 1816 or 1821, in either Baltimore, MD or Dorchester County Maryland. He moved to Arkansas by 1840 or 1850 and married Sarah Ann Columbia Sudsberry/Sudsbury. Note the sailor suit the child is wearing. If anyone thinks this picture is helpful, let me know and I will try to post one with his face displayed. Thank you.
Does anyone here have a person named Clifford Robert Wilson born in 1920 in their family tree? I don't have any other information about him other than he died around 2011. I would like to learn more him such as where he was born, possible military service and relatives.
