Enter a personal reminiscence or story.
The following information is based on my 1983 taped conversation with Matthew Wesley Plummer (Uncle Wesley).

Of great historical significance, Henry was born during the start of the civil war. When it comes to the order of siblings, we do know that Henry, the only boy, was also the oldest child. The 1870 Census says as much and it is important because it shows so many of the siblings being recorded as living in the Peacock Family household. We had not seen this before. We speculate this was the early origins of the Aurelia Wilson Family. His record is greatly obscured partially because he died at the early age of 19 years old. Given his age, we approximate that he died in 1880. He died of mysterious circumstances and it is unclear if foul play was involved. On a fall/winter cattle drive from Texas to Kansas in the late 1800's, the circumstances surrounding his death have never been understood or documented. Did someone bring him harm or was he lost in the deep snows. His body was never recovered. Henry was Aurelia Wilson's only son and as such, she mourned his death until her dying day and "died broken-hearted thinking of her child" (quoted Uncle Wesley).
