      Thanks for your response Frank. This info I had. My grandmother was Mary Wilson, the youngest child to this family.

      I am trying to find out more about Joseph Wilson's parents. I have been told that his father was Tommy from Ireland, but don't know who his mother was.

      Joseph and Irene is really as far back. documented, as I have been able to get.

      Any clues?
