Could someone provide me general information on the Scottish surname Wilson, particularly in Orkney as my DNA seems to indicate I have roots there? Isaac Wilson was born circ 1813, I believe in the U.S. Isaac Wilson owned land in Mill Gap near Wardensville, WV and married Eliza Tharp, daughter of James Tharp and Druilla Hulver. Isaac's parents may have been James and Ann Wilson, I do not know this as fact.
Wish I knew more info so as to be more helpful but this is my genealogical stubling block. I have no other surname that can be Scottish.
thanks, s
