David Wilson (1820-1898)

Jun 20, 2010 | Family

My great great grandfather David Wilson (1820-1898) survived the Civil War and the death of his 1st wife in the 1860’s.  In 1866 he remarried to start a new life, only to lose his oldest son William (age 21) and 4 babies between 1870 and 1874.

My father and I have placed a bench in the Harveyville, Kansas cemetery to remember these children and to honor David.
