A Wilson Family Tree

Welcome to my genealogy web site. Much of the information here has been collected from the internet (see the source list below). I have also been fortunate enough to make several contacts with distant relatives through the internet. In turn, I wanted to make what I have (so far) available to others. Be careful, because there are undoubtedly errors here. Places where I am unsure about something, or have conflicting information, may not come across fully because not all my notes and questions about sources are included. I would love to hear from anyone with corrections or additional information. I will update these pages occasionally as I get new info.

So far, I have been able to trace my particular branch of the Wilson family back to Augusta County, Virginia, in the last half of the 1700's. From there, they moved to Howard County and Saline County, Missouri, in the 1820's and 1830's. My direct Wilson ancestors then moved to Denver, Colorado, in the 1880's (some other family members moved to Colorado before that). There was some additional movement around Colorado before settling in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the 1940's and 1950's. Though I've called this site "A Wilson Family Tree", there is actually a lot more here about other parts of my family tree with more distinctive surnames. There are so many Wilsons it's hard to figure out which ones are mine, plus many of my Wilson families have been relatively small.
