My bet is on Thomas R. Wilson and his wife Mary C.  Here is the data that it is based on:

Jacob Daniel Wilson died on 8 June 1923 in Webb City, Jasper, Missouri.  He was  born in Illinois on 19 Aug 1859, but the names of his parents aren't shown. He was to be buried at the Mt. Hope Cemetery. His wife was Malissa Wilson.(Jacob Daniel Wilson Death Cert: Missouri Digital Archives, 1923 Jasper Co., Cert #19092. http://www.sos.mo.gov/images/archives/deathcerts/1923/1923_00021709.PDF) He is buried at the Mt. Hope Cemetery in Webb City.  His gravestone shows his birth date as 19 Aug 1859.(FindAGrave.com; Created by: Kelly; Record added: Jul 23, 2010; Find A Grave Memorial# 55352248)

In 1910, Daniel Wilson, 50 b. Illinois, lived with his wife Malissa in Webb Ward 2, Jasper, Missouri.  They had only been married for 3 years, but they had a 2 year old son, Eugene. Malissa had been married before, and there were 2 Wheeler step-children living with Daniel. Daniel's parents were born in Illinois.("United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M2YG-C94 : 29 October 2015), Daniel Wilson, Webb Ward 2, Jasper, Missouri, United States; citing ED 61, sheet 9B, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,374,804.)

On 9 July 1907, Malissa Wheeler and Jacob D. Wilson were married at Oronogo, Jasper, Missouri.  No additional information is given about Jacob.(Missouri County Marriage Records, 1819-1969 Images only: FamilySearch https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G989-MD8G?i=214&wc=Q4JW-827%3A352316901%2C1583602702%3Fcc%3D2060668&cc=2060668)

In 1880, Daniel Wilson, 20 b. IL, lived in Shelbyville, Shelby, IL, with his parents Thomas R. and Mary C. Wilson, Who are both shown as being born in Ohio. Other children in the family include: Sallie Wilson, 16; Mary Wilson, 14; Charles Wilson, 12; and George W. Wilson, 10, all born in IL.("United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MXKV-RGP : 24 December 2015), Daniel Wilson in household of Thomas R Wilson, Shelbyville, Shelby, Illinois, United States; citing enumeration district ED 200, sheet 277B, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0251; FHL microfilm 1,254,251.)

In 1920, George W. Wilson 50 b. IL, lived in Webb City Ward 2, Jasper, Missouri.  Three others lived with him: son Earnest C, 25; daughter-in-law Eunice Mae, 23; and grandson Ervin Earnest, 1-11/12.  George is married, but there is no wife present.("United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8HW-J6L : 14 December 2015), George W Wilson, Webb City Ward 2, Jasper, Missouri, United States; citing ED 71, sheet 10B, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,820,922.)

In 1910, George Wilson, abt 38? b. IL, lived in Webb Ward 2, Jasper, MO, with his wife Daisy and son Ernest.("United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M2YG-HFD : 29 October 2015), George Wilson, Webb Ward 2, Jasper, Missouri, United States; citing ED 61, sheet 14A, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,374,804.)

In 1900, George Wilson, 30 b. IL March 1870 was living in Cross, Kay, Oklahoma, with his wife Daisy, 25 b. IL, and son Earnest, 5 b. Missouri.  Charles's parents were both born in Ohio. Charles and Daisy have been married for 6 years.("United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MMGF-WMX : 22 January 2015), George Wilson, Cross Township (excl. Ponca city) Cross town, Kay, Oklahoma Territory, United States; citing ED 90, sheet 5B, family 98, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,241,338.)

In 1885, T. R. Wilson, 50, a farmer b. OH, lived in Fairview, Cowley, Kansas, with wife C. M., 47 b. OH, and two others: C Wilson, 17 b. IL; and G.W. Wilson, 15 b. IL. It looks like they came from IL 4 years earlier.(1885 Kansas State Census: Kansas State Census Collection, 1855-1925 Ancestry.com Operations Inc)

In 1910, Thomas R. Wilson, 77 b. OH, father-in-law, and Mary C. Wilson, 73, b. OH, mother-in-law, were living in Winfield Ward 2, Cowley, Kansas, with Benjamin K. White, 47 b. MO, and his wife Mary C., 43 b. IL. It is the second marriage for both of the Whites, and they have been married for 3 years.  Mary White has had 1 child, and Martha L. Northey, step-daughter, is living with them. Thomas and Mary Wilson have been married for 53 years, and Mary has had 7 children, one of whom as died.("United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M2CM-MVW : 29 October 2015), Thomas R Wilson in household of Benjamin K White, Winfield Ward 2, Cowley, Kansas, United States; citing ED 70, sheet 19A, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,374,449.)

Here is my reasoning, which is based on circumstantial evidence, but I think is solid:

In 1880, Thomas R. Wilson and his wife Mary C. lived in Shelbyville, Shelby, IL.  They had children Daniel, Sallie, Mary, Charles and George W.

In 1885, Thomas and Mary lived in Cowley Co. with two sons, C(harles) and G.W (George W.), and by 1910, Thomas R. Wilson and his wife Mary C. lived in Cowley Co., KS, with daughter Mary C., now White  By 1900, George had moved to Kay County, OK., but by 1910, he was in Webb City, Jasper, MO, and he was still there in 1920.  

By 1907, Jacob D. Wilson was already in Jasper County, MO, where he married Malissa.  He was in Webb City in 1910 and 1920, and he died there in 1923.

The key is that George, who had gone with his parents to Kansas, moved to exactly the same place as Jacob Daniel.  So, although the birthplace for his parents changes between Ohio and Illinois, I think Thomas and Mary are the correct ones. (There is also the coincidence of the first letter of Jacob's son being E(ugene), and the first letters of George's children and grandchild being E(arnest C), E(unice Mae), E(rvin Earnest), although that is of little import.
