Danville, Virginia Area Wilson (Willson) family

Danville, Virginia Area Wilson (Willson) family

I'm looking for Wilson's from the Danville, VA area. That includes Pittsylvania and Henry counties in VA and Rockingham and Caswell counties in North Carolina.

This family may have made a rare west to east move in the early 1800's. Some evidence suggests they moved from what is now West Virginia to Henry then Pittsylvania and Rockingham counties as the flue cured tobacco industry grew.

Genealogy information is at http://ringgold-ties.com and pictures at http://ringgoldwebworks.com

Genetic ties have pointed to Wilsons that moved to Missouri then Iowa.

I am related to some people from Danville, Va who were Cherokee. They were Starrs who changed their name to Wilson and kept that name as far as I know.

I am related to Wilson's from the states of VA and NC, specifically Danville as my father (a Wilson) was born there. He grew up in NC but they traveled back and forth often.
