I've been looking for information on a Scott Wilson, born 1849, somewhere in the vicinity of Troup Co (my GGFather). It was the custom in our family, as it was in many, to name a male child with the maiden name of a mother/grandmother in respect of that family (for instance my middle name is Sanford, the Maiden name of the woman Scott Wilson married).

Do you have any info on forefathers or offspring of this union you seek? Where did the line come into GA from (a wild rumor exists in our family that Scott's family came from NC)?

I await your response with great anticipation...

Hi Chris,
I just saw your message on RootsWeb. William Walker and Wineford Scott Wilson are my Great Great Grandparents. I was just wondering if you found out what you wanted to know. Let me know what kind of info you need. I am at work right now, so I do not have my family book with me.
Please email me.
