I am researching my ggg grandfather, John H. Wilson family who lived in Platteville, Grant Co., WI. John H. Wilson was born in 1845. I believe his father was William Wilson born abt. 1825. If I have found the correct family, William was born in Pennsylvania and the family settled in Indiana before moving to Wisconsin. I am looking for more info on this group. Here is what I have so far.

Taken from the 1860 Grant Co. census, Township of Harrison (?) Platteville Post Office.

William Wilson age 45, farmer, born in Pennsylvania
Ann, age 43 or 45, wife, born in Pennsylvania
Robert, age 20, farm hand, born in Indiana
William, age 17, born in Indiana
John, age 14, born in Wisconsin
Theodore, age 9, born in Wisconsin
Georgie, age 7, born in Wisconsin
Emily, age 4, born in Wisconsin

Taken from the History of Grant Co.:
Town of Smelser
Robert A. Wilson - stock dealer and proprietor of hotel Georgetown. Born in Posey Co., Indiana in 1840 came to Wisconsin in 1844 with parents located in Paris (WI), settled in Smelser in 1865. Married Melissa Jordan of WI. They had three children..Lewis A., Robert V. and Alta M. Mr. Wilson served four years in the United States Army.
