"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.
Thomas Wilson -
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.
My Great Grandparents , Emmett and Mary Wilson... Emmett Denton Wilson Born: June 2 1901 Monterey Tennessee ... Died : April 28 1969 Monterey Tennessee ... This would be the Wilson's from Overton and Putnum County Tennessee
William Henry Wilson 1868

Here is the list of IM170-M253 matches from the Wilson DNA study. (I noticed that unfortunately not all matches shown in the map and list are members of the Wilson study.
In the Wilson Surname study there are 24 kits listed under the I-M170+-> M253+ group. All but three are Wilsons - the others are Moody, Bowles, and Kopel. It would be helpful if everyone in this group would post a response below listing: Kit Number, Earliest Known Ancestor, and Earliest Known Location. I am especially interested in contacting the two from Maine and the two from PA. (Map also attached). (This post will only accept one graphic, so I will try to post the M253 group list below....)
