Information from Essay called The Adventurous Life of Daniel Howard Wilson written by Humboldt High School student, Steven Ash.

David Wilson's parents came from Scotland. After David married Margaret they settled in Nova Scotia. Mary, their first child, was born in l874 in Nova Scotia. Mary, and her parents moved to Boston for two years. Jim Wilson was born here in 1876. Then in 1876 they moved back to Nova Scotia where their third child, Lucy, was born. The Wilson family proceeded to move to Emerson, Manitoba area where they settled for one year. It was then that they heard of the richness of the Minnesota soil. They ventured across the border and settled on the present homestead which is about two miles northwest of Humboldt, Minnesota.

They helped raise a niece, Mayme Jury.
