  • Notes 
    • !Monongalia Co., WV marriage bonds 1796-1810.
      Monongalia Co., WV Deed.
      Revolutionary War Soldier- S 7907. He was a pensioner, and a brother of Ben Wilson. William s/o George (d 1815) is the same person as Wm. Wilson 2nd. Monongalia Deeds OS 12:478. Evidence: A number of deeds identify William, and place his residence at Cobuns Creek, where he inherited land from his father's will. A document of 27 April 1835, drawn up by this William and his nephew John Wilson (son of old George's dau. Hannah Wilson), recites that they are heirs to land via the will of George Wilson, notes that the land also entailed lifetime rights of Mary, George's widow, and was jointly owned by Hannah Wilson (now deceased). William and John hereby agree to the boundary lines dividing the tract between them, and the plat and metes/bounds are recorded. The next day John sells his portion of the land to Jonathan Prentiss.
      William later deeded his part of the land to his son Thomas Smallwood Wilson, and Thomas S. sold it to another man, reserving William's lifetime use of the land. These deeds put William as living at least until 1838.
      William married (2) 10 Oct 1824, Monongalia County, to Sarah Hite, widow of George Hite.
