Greetings Ms. Crist: This is what I have on James Wilson, Sr. regarding his children. James Wilson (The Signer) b. 9/14/1742 Caskerdo Scotland d. 8/21/1798 at Horniblow Tavern in Edenton, NC. was married to Rachel Bird b. 1/22/1747 d. 4/18/1786. on 11/5/1771 at St. Gabriels Episcopal Church in Birdsboro, PA Their children were: Mary "Polly" b. 1772, William B. 1775, Bird b. 1776 (who was a preacher/lawyer and wrote a biography of his father) d. NYC, James, Jr. b. 11/10/1779, Charles b. 1785, and Emily b. 1782. After Rachels death he married a very young woman from a prominent family - Hannah Gray of Boston on 9/19/1793 @ Brattle St. Church. They had one son - Henry, who died as an infant. Not sure what happened to Hannah. His son Bird supposedly had a "falling out" with his siblings due to his fierce religiousness and neglected to mention any of them in his books. The James Wilson, Jr. of MCMINN Co. who married a Dicey McClure may have been married twice- I'm at the same juncture you are. There is also a James Wilson, Jr. Ensign 21st Regiment mustered in on 1/15/1810 in the TN Militia. (not sure it this is the same one). My great-grandfather mentions in his Goodspeed history for Gibson Co. that his father James III and his Mother Harriet Wilkes were born in TN in 1815 and 1817 respectively and that they came to Gibson Co. in 1836. James & Harriets children were: John C. Wilson b. 1837, Dicey Wilson b. 1839, William Hube Wilson (my gr-gr gf) b. 8/2/1843 in Gibson Co. d. 7/29/1907 in Kenton TN, James A. b. 1846 and Ashley b. 1849. Harriet WILKES' father came from Brunswick Co. VA and moved to Humphrey Co. TN around 1805 and then on to Hardeman Co. in 1830 (no death record)
Do you have birth/death dates on James Wilson, Jr. and Dicey McClures children, Franklin W, John, or Polly? Dicey McClure seemed to have lived a long time- do you have a death date for her? I look forward to putting our heads together with regard to all these WILSONS
