Is there a death record in Winnebago County for the 1850s that might reveal what happened to Shannon Wilson, the son of Shannon Wilson and Nancy W. Strickland Wilson? The young Shannon was born at Hendricks County, IN, in 1848--the same year his father, Shannon, died. The younger Shannon appears with his widowed mother and four sisters, Mary, Almira, Sarah and Esther, on the 1850 census of Hendricks County, IN. That is the only record of young Shannon and his sister Mary I have found.

The widow, Nancy Wilson, married John W. Trotter, June 16, 1853 at Hendricks County, IN; moving her family with him to Winnebago County, Wisconsin. Only two of the five Wilson children appear in the 1860 census of Utica Township with John Trotter. Mary may have married, but at only twelve years-old, Shannon should still be with his family. He was probably deceased, his sister, Almira Elizabeth Wilson, died in 17 February 1855 and was buried at Liberty Prairie Cemetery (Find A Grave Memorial# 87773764). Inscription on her monument is, “Daughter of S & N Wilson age 14 yrs.”

Are there death or sexton’s records of that cemetery that might indicate if Shannon, or other of Nancy Wilson Trotter’s Children, interred At Liberty Prairie Cemetery or other Winnebago County Cemetery.?
