From Kathryn Farrell, second cousin once removed, great-granddaughter of my grandfather’s brother.
Thank you for a most interesting and well written account of James Joseph Wilson’s life.
I have been doing some “family tree” work for just over a year now, and thought I was clever accruing some names and dates, but you and your family have fleshed out the man and his times, and fascinating it was too.
My name is Kathryn Farrell née Houghton. My paternal grandmother was Jessie Geraldine Wilson, she married John Houghton and her parents were Michael Henry Wilson and Clara Jane Cluff.
Once again thank you for uncovering such a rich family history that I was totally unaware of.
