There is a record of a John WILSON born 1728/29 in Upottery, Devon England who could possibly be the John Wilosn you are inquiring about. He booked passage on the ship, ALBION in 1774 with what appears to be a brother, Thomas (b.1724) and another brother, Robert (b. 1726) who sailed on the prince George at the same time (1774. He landed in Nova Scotia but apprantly settled in Mecklenburg County, VA. In addition to James it appears likely that he had a son John (b. 1760) who fought in the revolutionary. This John Wilosn is the father of a long line of John Wilson's (my Dad being the last. There seems to be conflicting information whether this John Wilson (the one born 1760) was from Mecklenburg County VA or from Mecklenburg County VA. My family tradition is that we came from Virginia, but several references put John Wilson from NC.
