A Wilson Family Tree
Notes for David Wilson
The Bushman information says he was unmarried. David was left part of his father's land in his will, and then when his brother Robert died he received the rest of it. When David died, he left the land to his brother William.
Following is a transcription of David's will (Will Book 12, pp. 116-117). Unfortunately, the copy I have is not very good and parts of it are unreadable. I have added some punctuation to improve readability.
I David Wilson, of the county of Augusta & State of Virginia, being sick in Body but in perfect mind & memory, do make & constitute this my Last will & Testament in manner following, Viz, after all my Just Debts & funeral Expenses are paid I give & bequeathe unto my Brother William Wilson all my Estate that I possess ... and personal [?] ... claim to. Secondly I order my Brother William to give unto my Sister Letty Wilson a sufficient maintainance as long as She remains unmarried, & also to give her fifty pounds in cash or property which Ever may best suit the parties.
