Aurelia grew up in South Carolina where various censuses list both her parents as originating from (?). Because she was born in 1836, we speculate that she was most likely an enslaved person, although we know that there was a small percentage of individuals who were freed.
It is important to note that the census years 1900, 1910, and 1930 record entries for Aurelia Wilson and show her living with her daughter Ella E. and her son-in-law John O. Robinson first at 318 Nolan St. and at 501 N. Palmetto Ave in San Antonio, Texas. In 1900 (per census) she was 60 years old and listed as a widow, however the 1910 census lists her age as 76 (a discrepancy).
11/29/15 - We now have access to Aurelia Wilson's death certificate and while it lists her father as "J. Wilson" and her mother as "unknown", we prefer to have more information about her father in order to create his profile.

Out of this tragedy was born a great family who in subsequent decades made tremendous contributions to not only San Antonio society, e.g, Cameron School being named after Bella Holley Cameron. Robert Holley whom I am named after was a well known lawyer in Washington, D.C. at that time. Wesley Plummer was a trainer for the Tuskegee Airmen.
