WILSON J. LANDER was born near Winchester, Kentucky, in 1811, was reared on a farm in Christian County, and secured a good education. He was rich in manly virtues and highly esteemed by all who knew him. For some years he was a merchant in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, but he was too trustful to succeed well in that line. He was a Baptist. For awhile his pastor was his partner, and the trustful WILSON was swindled out of everything he had. The ungodly pastor loaded the goods into wagons and disappeared between two days! WILSON married REBECCA PERKINS in 1836, by whom he had three children. After REBECCA died he married his cousin, NANCY PAULINE, a Williamite, in October 1856. He died in 1879 from being kicked by his saddle horse. Rev.
