    Will of William Wilson of Flat Creek, Hall County, Georgia

    The will of William Wilson of Flat Creek was dated 30 January 1849 andprobated 5 March 1849, and recorded in Hall County, Georgia, Will BookA, 1837-1867, pp. 51-53.

    The will named his wife Rachel and children:
    John H. Wilson, Thomas S. Wilson, Washington G. Wilson, Wiley T.Wilson, Richard T. Wilson, William A. Wilson, Benjamin F. Wilson,Narcissa Wilson, and
    grandson William C. Dawson.

    The will was witnessed by
    W. E. Wilson,
    John Stringer, and
    A. S. Wilson.

    W. E. Wilson was my uncle William E. Wilson, son of Robert and Jane(Hillhouse) Wilson of Pendleton County, SC, and Hall County, GA, andW. E. Wilson had married Nancy Wilson who was thought by my family tobe a sister of William Wilson of Flat Creek.

    A. S. Wilson was Andrew S. Wilson who had married my aunt ElizabethAnn W. Wilson, daughter of Robert and Jane (Hillhouse) Wilson, andAndrew S. Wilson was thought by my family to have been a brother ofWilliam Wilson of Flat Creek. In addition, the families were believedto be blood cousins in the direct Wilson line, which, if so, wouldhave made at least three connections between the William Wilsons ofFlat Creek and my Robert Wilson family in Hall County.

    As my prior postings show, Robert Wilson (c.1765-c.1842) of HallCounty was a son of John Wilson, Sr. (c.1740-c.1823) and wifeElizabeth Wilson of Saluda River, Pendleton County, SC, and previouslyof York County, SC.
