This is a copy and paste of notes I wrote on James Wilson's biography: Notes: There was at least one other James Wilson in Rowan County at the time of our James' birth, evident in census records going back to before James was born. One of James and Hannah's sons was named James also. I can find no definite evidence of James and Hannah living in North Carolina after their marriage, but at the same time I know for a fact that their two sons John Washington and William Hamilton lived out their years in North Carolina. They may have done some traveling in their younger years, but that is purely speculation at this time. The land and cemetery records from Tennessee are the most concrete evidence I have been able to find on James and Hannah outside of North Caroline, and even this is subject to change. Thank you for your patience, dear reader.

NOTE: I have seen different death dates for Hannah. One is 1808, which was my original date of death for her, but when I found the burial place in Tennessee I decided to go with that date. I am still puzzled by a few questions I have. I am now working on profiles for children of Hannah and James Wilson. I hope to find some clues which will lead me to the correct answer. I also need another conversation with a certain cousin who holds a few keys.

Bryan-1930 and Bryan-114 appear to represent the same person because: birth is off by one year exactly, death and parents are the same
