I did not record the origen of this but it fits with the other history that I have.
Benjamin Wilson was born on September 3, 1773 and grew up in Nottoway Parish, Southampton County, Virginia. He married Martha Patsey Luter the daughter of John and Elizabeth Luter, who was born on 12 May 1782 in Southampton county the twin sister of Matthew Luter. Benjamin was a lieutenant in Captain Richard B. Kello's Company of the 65th Virginia Militia and served briefly during the War of 1812. On 4 November 1817 they sold the last of their land and with Benjamin's ellerly parents, his sister Rebecca and her husband Willy Coggins moved to the newly formed territory of Alabama. The families setteled in the portion of Montgomery County that became Autuga County on 21 November, 1818. One gathers from early narriatives that Benjamins land lay in the vicinity of the Indian town of Wetumpka, situated in two parts on the east bank of the Coosa River, and the white settlement of Coosada (established on the site of the Indian town of Koasati which was burned in 1814 during the Creek War) which was annexed in 1866 and is now part of Elmore County. By 1860 only two of Benjamins and Patsy's nine children, six of whom had come with them from Virginia, would still make there home in Alabama.
