I am Evelyn Hutto. My grandmother told me our Wilsons were from SC but I have no information on them.
My great grandfather was James R. Wilson born about 1871 in SC, died about 1896, and married Ruthie Hart in Feb 1894 in Savannah, Georgia. Their son Benjamin Franklin Wilson, Sr. was born in Lena, Hampton, SC in 1894.
I have recently found Richard R. Wilson in the 1880 Census in Hampton Cty. with a son James of the correct age. You refer to this same Richard in your posts but have no information on his son James.
I was wondering if you have found any information on James since you last posted? Could my James R. be the son of Richard R.? It would be great to know that I have found my Wilson ancestors.
Please e-mail me at
Thank you, Evelyn M. Hutto
