I think the John Wilson you mentioned above was at one time in Williamson County, TN possibly with several brothers. In fact I think there might have been six Wilsons in Williamson County, TN who were either brothers or if not brothers, related since they all seemed to know each other and each others business. Two are mentioned as living in Obion Co. TN - John & William Wilson and a third, Thomas Wilson moved to Obion Co. where he died in 1831. There is some information on them on my website, WILSONS IN WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TN. The page is called "Six Wilson Brothers". I'd like to know more about these families.

I'm not positive but there is a Wilson Family listed on the 1850 census Obion Co. TN p. 385B who could be the ones you are looking for.

Perry Wilson 30 KY
Lucretia 22 TN
Jane 03 TN
James 1/12 TN
Louisa More 21 TN

Perry Wilson married Lucretia Moore, 6 Sep 1846 Obion Co. TN

On the 1860 census it seems his name is listed as "C.P. Wilson"

My g-grandfather was James Walker Wilson, aka, "Finger Jim", b.11-12-1849 in Hornbeak,Obion Cty.,Tennessee, he died 5-6-1926 in Raton NM, and is buried there. On 7-25-1877 he married Annie Marier Lippard, b. 2-14-1854, in Western Tennessee, d.7-2-1897 in Hornbeak Tenn. She is buried in Cobb's Chapel Cemetery in Hornbeak. They had 4 children that they raised in Obion Tennessee. Children: Daisy Ella (or Ellen), Vera Loxie, Frank(?), James W., Jr.(Boot). Other than their marriage notice, and a Deed to 1 acre in the 5th District, dated 8-5-1895, and noted in book #4, pg. 239, recorded 8-12-1895, I have been unable to find any records or family connections for them. I know that there were several Wilson families in the area, and several Lippard families too, but can't connect. On his death certificate his father's name is listed as "William Willson (sp??). Other than my grandmother, Vera Loxie, I know nothing of the where abouts of the other children either. Appreciate any information or help. Thanks

Thank you for your reply......
I found the Perry Wilson family on the 1850/1860 census' some time back, noteing that they had a son born that they called "James" in 1849. I believe they later showed up in Kentucky(?), but since the father's name is shown as "Perry/C.P.", I have kept the record, but set them aside in my files because they do not seem to fit my Wilson's profile. Also on the 1850 census the family of James Madison Wilson had a son born which was named "James", and he seemed to fit except that with later research I found that this "James" married an "Oyer", and my James Walker only had one wife who was "Annie". He did not re-marry after her death in 1897. Interestingly, going back over my notes on the Tiptonville census for 1860, I found a William L.(?)Wilson, a farm laborer with an 11 yr. old son named "Walker". No wife or other children were shown, and I do known that there was at least one other son, his name is unknown, but believe his nick names was "Hands". This may fit since my Wilsons later fished commercially from Reelfoot Lake. Perhaps this added information will lead to something. Thank you again. I appreciate your effort.

I've been searching for Sampsons and this obit showed up linked to the Lee family. I know it's probably not one to light up your day, but it IS a Lippard:
