Your grandfather Wilson Etheredge would appear to be the Wilson Lafayette Etheredge who was born 25 Dec 1878 in AL, son of John Franklin Etheredge and Nancy J. Tew. Let me know if I am wrong here (e-mail: Sanfordeth@aol.com
). I have all these listed as Etheridge, but the spelling is immaterial. John Franklin's fathe was Edmund, and this whole line is traced back to the immigrant Thomas Etheridge, d. 1671 in Norfolk Co VA, and is documented in several books, notably "Ten Generations," which you can order online, and Holtzclaw's Etheridge Genealogy in vols. 14 and 15 of the series Historical Southern Families, ed. John Bennett Boddie. E-mail me if you need further info on these books.
