Hello everyone, I keep hitting my head against the wall. My second great Grandfather John Taylor Wilson is giving me massive and I mean massive headaches. Maybe people from the Illini state can help me better. His death cert has his parents names blank and differing documents list his birth state as either Illinois or Mo so, I am posting this twice in two differing state forums. According to 'his" 1880 US census he was living in Hamburg, Calhoun county, Illinois. The problem is John Wilson is such a common name it's like trying to find a needle is stack of other needles. So, Here is all of the information that I have on him thusfar, I hope someone can help me out. Thank you soo very much!
