There is a great deal of speculation on Luke and Mary's parentage.  Luke is said to be an orphan and raised by family.  That may very well be true.

There are also researchers who have argued that Mary Hobson married Lewis Wiles and those folks argue that there was never another Mary Hobson who married in North Carolina. Well...there is a book on Surry NC marriages and it is online which is where I found my marriage date: Luke Wiles & Mary Hobson 2 Nov 1807, David Hobson bm.. There are also other researchers who say David is her father...he served as bondsman and it does not state he is her father. I have not found any children named David but there is one named Silas and David Hobson had a younger brother named Silas...I wonder if David was her uncle and Silas her father??
