Surnames: PETTIGREW WILSON RITTER REED
Submitter: Peter Wilson (pmwilson@uswest.net)
Date: 17 Oct 1999

Elizabeth Pettigres (1820-1854) was a daughter of Charles and Nancy Pettigrew. Isaiah and James Pettigrew were landowners in Galletin 1814-1836. Here are some of Elizabeth's wilson desendants: JAMES REED WILSON 1817 KY-1898 KS by Peter Wilson, 8 East 25 St., Minneapolis MN5540 pmwilson@uswest.net, 612-871-4807 James Reed (J.R.) Wilson, the only son of Jeremiah Wilson and Martha Reed, was born March 3, 1817, probably in Montgomery County, Kentucky (see Volume I). J.R. was remembered by his granddaughter, Mattie Cabler Barnett, who took care of his appearance during the last eight years of his life, as "a tall man, rather thin but not poor. He was always kind to those who did as he thought right. He always wanted to be right, or always thought he was." Mattie went on to say, " I can see since I got older that he was very selfwilled, or headstrong, but he was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. He was a cow man in his younger years in Texas and came to Kansas in 1881. [He] bought cattle and horses. He had lots of hired help, families and extra men." "[J.R.] liked to ride horseback and did as long as he could get on a horse without help. He did not want to be helped and waited on. He was always doing something. He made (a) garden and let the girls (granddaughters) work with him in the garden. He did lots of reading, also whittled a lot. [He] swatted flies with a fly swatter he made of a boot top and a cherry twig. He never had screen doors." "[J.R.] was a good looking man, very stately, and dressed the same every day: boots, dark pants, a wool shirt and long underwear in winter, and drawers in summer [with] a dark cotton shirt. [He wore] a wide rim hat all the time. Very good looking to me. His eyes were blue and his hair was dark, but always white when I knew him. He had a long white beard and he wore his white hair long. I don't remember who kept his hair and beard cut to suit him." The photo of J.R. looking like a Presbyterian patriarch was taken about 1889. In April 1834 James Reed Wilson joined the White River Presbyterian congregation with Ezra Wilson (c.1785-), perhaps his uncle, George W. Cosby, Ezra's wife, Nancy (a daughter of Abner Hamilton?), and Ezra's children, Eliza Ann and Abner. The group was inducted at the Cane Hill Campground by Rev. J.M. Blair, James Buchanan and William Reed, elders. Ezra was a resident of Crawford County until the 1840's and last served as an elder in the White River congregation in Washington County in 1835. In May 1839 J. R. Wilson and George A. Pettigrew were on a jury which acquitted Willis Wallace of killing a Cherokee named Orr on the Trail of Tears as it passed through Fayetteville, Arkansas. On November 12, 1839, James Reed Wilson married Elizabeth (Betty) Pettigrew (1820-1854) in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. Elizabeth was born in Gallatin County, Illinois. Her parents, Charles and Nancy Pettigrew, were Cumberland Presbyterians. According to the first congregation minutes, they joined the Cane Hill Congregation on August 30, 1828. The Pettigrews transfered to the Prairie Congregation in 1831. Several of the Pettigrews were active in journalism and politics. Elizabeth bore James seven children, All but William (Billy) in Washington County, Arkansas. In later life Billy was vague about his birthplace, giving various places where his father had resided, including Missouri and Kentucky, but Billy was also probably born in Washington County, Arkansas. Elizabeth Pettigrew Wilson's first child, Charles L. Wilson, was born in 1840. Charles married Mary Jane Kirby about 1875. On November 3, 1840, J. R. Wilson and Elizabeth Pettigrew Wilson sold 80 acres in Washington Co., Arkansas, to Nimrod Stevenson for $300.00. 40 acres were in section 9, township 15N, range 31W, and 40 acres were in section 9, township 15N, range 31W. Elizabeth's second child, William J. (Billy) Wilson, was born April 7, 1843. Billy's right arm was lost but nevertheless he excelled in every aspect of frontier life. Stories about his arm differ. John Francis (1908-1984) thought the arm had been bitten off by a mean horse before Billy was five years old. Others thought the loss was congenital. A non-family member once wrote that it had been ripped off by a hay bailer, which seems anachronistic, since we know the arm was lost before the 1860's. Billy married Emma Sheek about 1873. Elizabeth's third child, Nancy Alvira Wilson, was born February 7, 1846. Nancy married Albert J. Anderson on October 18, 1865. Elizabeth's fourth child, Lafayette Abraham Wilson, was born February 25, 1848. Fayette married Charity Hensley on December 2, 1880. . Elizabeth's fifth child, James P. Wilson, was born in 1849. His wife was named Josephine, but always called Jennie. In 1849 J.R. joined the gold rush to California. He recalled crossing one gorge on a plank. His mule refused to try the plank. But once J. R. crossed and proved the plank safe the mule followed by itself. J.R.'s partner died in California. By the time J.R. returned to Prairie Grove, via Cape Horn, in 1851 there was nothing left for the partner's widow, or for J.R.. Elizabeth's sixth and seventh children were twins: George and Martha Emma Wilson were born March 17, 1852 (?). Martha married John Henry Anderson on June 8, 1867. George headed for the Arizona frontier when he was about 22 and he was often out of touch with the family. Elizabeth Pettigrew Wilson died November 10, 1854. She was buried in row 22 of the Prairie Grove Cemetery. On August 22, 1857, J.R. Wilson married his second wife, Nancy Jane Hughes (1838-1870). J. R.'s second marriage was performed by Reverend William Reed (1819 KY-1866 AR), probably his cousin, of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Nancy was born at Cane Hill in Washington Co. Arkansas. She was a daughter of Nancy Jane Kirby and Aaron Hughes. The Kirby family had migrated from southside Virginia through Wilkes Co., North Carolina, and Greene Co., Tennessee. The Hughes family had migrated from Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, through Augusta Co., Virginia, and Greene Co., Tennessee. J.R. was 40 years old and had five-year-old twins to care for when he remarried. Nancy Jane was a widow at age 19 and only two years older than J.R.'s oldest son, Charles. Nancy Jane had a year-old daughter, Artemesia Hysaw, from her first marriage to James Hysaw/Highsaw (1834 GA-1856 AR). It must have been difficult for Nancy to discipline her step children. Billy, proud and self-sufficient despite his handicap, was fourteen, five years younger than his stepmother. On February 9, 1859, J. R. Wilson and Nancy Hughes Wilson sold three parcels of land in Washington Co., Arkansas, containing 120 acres to John H. Goodman and S. Lefevere for $1350.00. The parcels were in section 16, township 15N, range 31W. Nancy Jane's first surviving child, Sarah C. Wilson was born about May, 1859, in Arkansas. Sarah married Alfred Sappington Polk about 1876. Later in 1859 James Reed Wilson moved his family to Texas. The Wilsons settled on the Keechi Creek in Palo Pinto County, Texas, near present-day Grayford. Most of the settlers ran cattle on the open range. A man was then considered prosperous if he had an estate valued at over $5000.00. The area was precinct 5 in the 1860 census. The Wilson's new neighbors were recorded in the 1860 census: W.W. Cochrane, a prosperous farmer from Georgia; Thomas & William Stevens, cattlemen from Kentucky; John Ballard, a farmer from Tennessee; Ben & William Harris, cattlemen from Missouri; Stephen Brannon, a cattleman from Alabama; Miles Edwards, a farmer from North Carolina; A.M. Hunter, a cattleman from Missouri; John Clayton, a prosperous cattleman from South Carolina; James Brown, a prosperous cattleman from Alabama; W.D. Conatser, a cattleman from Alabama; Morgan Mullins, a cattleman from Virginia; David Cleveland, a surveyor from Alabama; William Mullins, a cattleman ! from Tennessee; Edmund Whatley, a prosperous farmer from South Carolina; Reuben Vaughn, a cattleman from Alabam

I am trying to find out about Simon WOMBLE and WOMBLE MOUNTAIN. I believe that he married Sara SHRUM (my gg grandmother). Would like any information on these people. They married in Gallatin Co, probably in the 1830's or there abouts, I don't have my documentation in front of me. Sara was in the 1850 Reynolds County, Missouri census without a husband. She had several siblings with her and two or three children. My great grandfather (James WOMBLE) was born in September of 1850 (I have seen his birth date as 1849 also, but he was not on the 1850 census with Sara). Also, would like information on Alfred & Eliza SHRUM REED, they married in Gallatin Co. in 1830. Would like to find if any connection to Sara SHRUM.

Looking for information on John MILNE(S) who shows up in Gallatin Co., IL 1830 Census records, in Shawneetown. Wondering if this is my "lost" John MILNE found in 1850 Osage Co., MO census??? I found a John MILNE m. Elizabeth SMITH on 7 Apr 1835 in Gallatin. Not sure if this is one and the same. If so, John may have been married before, because 3 children listed with he and Elizabeth were born AFTER this marriage date. Children listed in 1850 were: Eliza A. b. 25 Feb. 1830 m. Stephen CRAIN.

According to his death certificate, both of his parents were born in Ireland. His father's name is either Wm. J. or J.J. (it is next to impossible to read & there is disagreement amongst those of us who have seen it as to what it says). His mother's name is also difficult to read but it appears to be Anna Nevell. I don't know when they imigrated or if they were married in Ireland or met and married in the US. I just know that my g. grandfather was born here and by the 1880's he was living in Iowa with his first wife and had 3 daughters with her. We figure she must have died because he was catholic and he married my g. grandmother and remained catholic. He had 9 more children with her. On the 1860 Census index I saw a Sinnott (43-44)listed on p 6 Anyone knowing about this family please respond. Will share information from 1880's on to now.

William Jackman Crow and Sarah Ward Crow moved from Westmoreland Co. PA to Gallatin Co. IL c. 1861. They are on the 1870 census living in Township 10, range 9, Saline Mines P.O. They had one son, Louis, age 12. Although I can't find them on the 1880 census, when Sarah's mother died in PA in 1892 and the estate distributed, Sarah Crow, widow, sent her notarized signature to the executor. She was then 60 (and another notarized signature in 1894), living in Gallatin Co. Help?

Looking for descendants of James Allen b 7/16/1791 and Elizabeth Reynolds Allen b 2/12/1792. James is shown on 1830 census for Hamilton Co with 2 females in household, probably Catharine b 1817 TN, and his wife Elizabeth. There are several other males in home besides James. Looks as though there were 2 males born before Catharine, prob 1813 and 1815, both in TN, then there are younger males. Would like to know names of Catharine's siblings. Would suspect the first son might be named James, Jr, as James' (1791) father had died by then. Common names in ALLEN line were: Nancy, Catherine, James, William, John, Zachariah, Charles. One of James' (1791) sisters had md a Tomlinson, one a Reynolds. The Allen bros had md Reynolds, Quinn, Blackard and Gill.
