.PRiirACI:.- 



For years I have had it in vie-.v to prepare for publication cur fairily tree, which woul'l necessriale 
a traditioual history of foieigu ancestors in Scotland, Ireland and Wales. One object of the book is ic 
preserve in one volume all that is authentic in regard to the ancestral lines of several families thai: axe 
closely related by frequent intermarriages. 1 hope by this work to rescue from oblivion anciept 
tradition that would soon be lost, beyond the reach of anyone who might hereafter desire to write oiii 
famil)- history. The most troublesome and tedious part of the task was collecting necessar}' documeut;s, 
old letters and ancient family records. Important contributions have been obtained from David Wilsoii, 
Miss Maud Wilson, James O. Houston, V. A. Jlilroy, Mrs. S. J. Traylor, Mrs. Nannie Grain, Horace 
Stafford, and others. In fact, it is very gratifying to me that nearly all to whom I have applied for informa- 
tion have responder. promptly and cheerful;}-, giving me not 0!ily their immediate family record, !>ut have 
kept up an interest in the undertaking, searched out others, and located for me scattered members of tnt 
different families. To them, all 1 beg to return a warm acknowledgement of their kind assistance. 

Several obstacles have retarded .the progress of the work of completing the manuscript; but tb.:;' 
has been an advantige; it gave me lime to examine, more minutely tb.e authcrities and make a be'.ter 
arrangement of the matter to be published. i 

In the biographical sketches it has been my aim to conjprise as nuich as possible in the smallest 
compass, and lo select from each of the branche.': represented some prominent one deserving of notice. I 
regret that for want of sufficient data I am compelled to leave without special notice so many worthy ones 
The scholar will undoubtedly find nir.ch to criticise in the literary style of the book; but 1 trust all erro! 
and impeifectious witl be kindly vicv»-ed, and thai ii may meet with favor from the many relatives wb-. j 
names appear upon its pages. The book is inteuded as a souvenir that sliall remain when • of to/i- 
arc'uu; ered with car fathers. It ir bot-e'^ t''f- <\:<^cper]''- p'»nf■rs^i.•"".ls wi'i f^i/e it a.s ll book ai'J

I-RF.FACE. 



Ours is not such an ancestral line as ihat of "Margaret, the motlier of criminal.?." We can look 
back with gratitr.de ai;d pride to the noble Christian mothers whose influence stili continues iron: 
generation to generation. 

I do not claim an ancestry free from moral deficit, nor is it always just to judge a mother bv the 
waywardness of her children, but we can truly say that noble characteristics mark otir line all the vvav 
and we have among ns a large proportion of men and won.en of rare ability and integrity who will rran.<^'- 
^it to their posterity the respectability, morality, energy and talent, which -44i':'characterized our lace in 
no small degree. If I have awakenud a more general interest in our distinguished ancestors and secured 
for them a better appreciation my object will be fully accomplished. With many of you I have h 
pleasant communion and with all 1 hope to spend a happy eternity and congratulate eacli of you in 
family reunion above, with our names all written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

OME writer lias sr.id 
tluit the first step in 
civilization was d'.s- 
tinc-:ion of ranks ; 
and heraldry was 
serviceable as the 
means of marking 
this distinction. The 
name arms must be 
ascribed to tlie fact 
that these emblems 
were tirst worn bv 



military commanders on tlieir shields, banners '--r 
oth^ r inirtial instrnments. 

The most nsefn! purpose of this science was 
to sicnalize merit; and preserve the memory of the 
illns'r-nobs. This -cill always secure it from 
contempt. 

Tlie hereditarj- use of arm.s to distinguish 
f&niilies did not begin until the year 1230. The 
armed Knight was known by his shield and crest 
on which the figures marked his family and the 
nation to v,hich he belonged. These armorial 
ensigns of the warrior I.,ord ornainented the walls 
of hi3 c,"stlc where thc-y acted as a nieiuentc of the 



past and a stimulus of the future. .\lso ariuorin! 
ensigns of f.iiuily d!sti;;Ctioii were exhibited on 
household furniture, on plate and coins. These 
honorable families were vc-r) tenacious of their 
bearings as the privilege of using them was limited 
and select. Now the general bent of tl;e bumau. 
mind is turned irom the ideal to the useful and 
this has cau.sed the decadence of heraldr}-. 

It is a pleasure to cherish with piide the 
honorable eniblcms which distinguished cur ances- 
tors and descended uudefiled to their posterity. 

In our l.iud of equal rights and distinction to 
all whose gcniility njavbc the result of their ov.ui 
exertions or ability, vnx are content to rest securely 
under tlie American eagle, stars and stripes ; and 
as we resign these family crests, e5r:b!en;s of the 
past we may distinguish or.rrelves noblv by another 
armor: "The gospel of peace, breast-plate of 
righteousness, shield of faith and hciniet of salva- 
tion." 

" It's better to be meanly, born and good, 
Thau one unworthy of his biood ; 
Though aii tliy walls .shine with thy pedi-,-. 
Yei virtue alone marks nobillLy. ''

Sir Herbert Maxwell has truly said that the Scottish nation owes its very existence to Robert Bruce, 
nd dearly they keep his memory. 

There are some things in his early life that his most devoted admire'/s could v.-ish to see erased from 
he pages of history. But when we consider the age in which he lived the customs of warfare, low 
itandard of morality and the trying circumstances iu which he was placed, we can easily drav.' the mantle 
jf charity over all his faults and inconsistency. Admitting his short comings as a n;an, as a King hf 
never gave his subjects cause to blush for him. After he v.-as crowned King he followed a single purpose 
with heroic courage, wise judgment and quick disceruraent. 

No truthful historian has attempted to charge him with cruelty. lie was humane and eveu indulg-ent 
to prisoners of war, forgiving and generous tov/ards his enemies. He alv/ays desired peace v.'ith England, 
yet would stoop to no dishonorable terms to obtain it. 

Had he lived longer he would have displayed the same energy, in the affairs of peace an ity, 

for which he was so conspicuous in war. The following from Historia "Majoris Britannia" i.s all we 
know of his appearance and personality: 

His figure was graceful and athletic with broad shoulders. His features v;ere handsome, he bad the 
yellow hair of the northern race, with blue and sparkling c}-es. Kis intellect was quick and he had the 
gift of fluent speech, in the vernacular, delightful to li.sten to. 



.Genecilogy of Bruce., 



I. Robert de Brus, or Bruce, as it is now written, was a Norman Baron who came to England 
with William the Conqueror in 1066; and received in princely reward for his services the grant of ninety-

EcT. Alonzo A. Johnson, D. I). 

Piesidect Johnson was born in Scott County, 
Ind. He was the eldest of eight children born to 
Gideon and .Martha Brace Wilson Johnson. He 
was educated at DePaugh University, Greeucastle, 
Ind., and was licensed to preach the Gospel in M. E. 
church in 1S79. He was president of the Texas 
Wesley an Covlege at Fort Worth, Texas, 1SS7-9 
and is now president of the State University at 
Laramie, Wycfiriing. 

He has ti,'o brothers, Jauies and David, in the 
ijiinistry of 2vf. E. church also. All are noble 
standard bearers in the cause of Christ. Their 
ancestois on "heir mother's side are the Dickys 
and Wilsons of Indiana, of Presbyterian faith. 
They o-ve mucb to the faithful instruction of their 
sainted mother, who was a devoted Christian 
woman, and possessed more th.an ordinary intelli- 
gence and learning. 



Thomas Brown Wilson. 

The deata of Thomas Brown Wilson, the 
last of the ei«ht sons of William and I\Iargaret 
Wilson, occurred Jan. 5, 1893, at the home of A. 
Sb.ini;, his soc-in-law. near Fort Scolt, Kansas. 
He was born in Waslungton county, Pennsylvania, 



Sept. 15, 1810. Came to Sco:t county India.-ia 
with the famil_\- in iSid. He was employed on 
his father's farm until seventecr: years of age, when 
he was apprenticed to learn the tanner's trade. 
Soon after completing his apprenticeship be mar- 
ried Ann Lowry, and settled on a farm near Lex- 
ington, Ind. He also conducted a tan yard in 
connection with the farm. ^ 

In 1858 he quit the business of tanning an.d 
for several years engaged in meichandising, was 
not successful, and finally lost ail his propert

that was remarkable in one suffering as he did 
with the infirmities of age. His memory which had 
always been good became unusually clear, enabling 
him to recall events in his early life on bis death 
bed at the age of eighty-three. His love of read- 
ing wac a solace to him through all the labors and 
trials of his life, and a delight in his decline, 
when all but mental pleasures had become extinct 
for him. He was quite a musician in his day. 
Played beautiful Scotch airs on the flute and 
taught the old fashioned singing schools in country 
school houses. 

When a boy he manifested a talent for rhym- 
ing that would have gained some notoriety for him 
in after years, had he persevered. 

His nephew, Blair Wilson, wrote to him in 
1S5G to send him some of his early attemps at 
poesy, but he could not remember his boyish 
rhymes, and wrote him the following in reply. 

Those lines you want I can't now quote, 
For they have slipped uiy mind; 

'i -lose simple doggerel rhymes I wrote, 
I'd days of Auld lang syne. 

jr man)' years have swiftly tied, 
Since that delusive time: 
".■•'hea rhyming fancies filied my head, 



In days Oi Auld lang syne. 

Since life's realities I've tried, 

Such follies I resign; 
Those rhymes in which I took such pride, 

In days of Auld lang syne. 

I often visit yet the spot, 

Where boyhood joy s v,-ere mine; 
And naught can from ray memory blot, 

The scenes of Auld lang syne. 

My aged parents living yet, 
Were then in life's full prime; 

Though altered now I'll ne'er forget, 
Their looks in Auld lang syne. 

Your worthy sire who now is not, 

But long since passed from time; 
Comes up in nsany a cherished thought, 
Qf' days of Auld lang syne. 

How many friends by death removed, 

Have I 10 dust consigned; 
Yet I've some as dearly loved, 

As those of Auld lang syne. 

My you)igest darling baby pet, 

We call her Eveline; 
Was r=ent by lieaven to compensate, 

For friends of Auld lang syne.

TUDGE FRANCIS WILSOX. 



I have one, another calls his ov.'i], 

But still I say she's mine; 
As well as those I keep at home, 

Since days of Auld lang syne. 

The issues in the election in the fall of 1892 
suggested the following lines from Mr. Wilson. 
He died in a couple of weeks after the poem was 
written. 

The good old days when I was young, 

Are much to be lameuted; 
For people lived so happy then, 

And always were contented. 

They had enough for present use, 

And never strove for riches; 
In summer wore tov,- liuen clothes, 

In winter buckskiu breeches. 

In wooden troughs and other ways, 
Beef hides were tanned to leather; 

And made our shoes for rainy days. 
Or for inclement \seather. 

We ate our meals with pewter spoons, 

And paid but little taxes; 
Cut down trees to catch the coons, 

With blacksmitirs hand made a.xes. 



For meal v,e punctured bits of tin, 

Ou this the corn was grated: 
Then sifted it with sheep-skiu sieves, 

With holes well perforated. 
Fat bears and bucks we killed for meal. 

And then we shot wild turkeys; 
Some would even possum eat. 

Like Old time southern darkies. 
For any kind of svveeteniug goods, 

We did not pay the money; 
For hollow trees throughout the woods, 

Were stowed v/ith luscious hone\'. 
But little money had we then, 

Yet each one a great defender; 
Of sound finance. And coon skins made 

A lawful legal tender. 

Politics in those good old days, 

Was one united faction; 
For all the votes ^\e e^-er cast, 

\Vere for old General Jackson. 

Judge Francis Wilson.

were Thomas Brown Wilson and Ann (Lowry) 
Wilson, earl)- settkrs of Indiana, the former being 
a tanner, at which trade Francis was brought up. 

Afler the age of fifteen years, our subject 
taught school for about five years. During a por- 
tion of the time, however, he attended Hanover 
College. In 1857 he went to Centralia, Illinois, 
where for two years he taught school and surveyed 
and also began the study of law, borrowing books 
from Judge Bruce. He then taught school and 
studied law for a couple of years at Paoli, Orange 
County, Indiana, and in 1S62 was admitted to 
practice at the bar of that county, and the same 
year was appoiuted Provost Marshal, which office 
he held during the remainder of the Civil War. 

While in Paoli he foimed a connection in the 
practice of law, with Col. A. !M. Black. He 
remained iu Paoli until 1867, when he located in 
Bedford, Indiana, forming a partnership with Col. 
A. C. Voris, and afterward with Hon. .Moses F. 
rs;?-- wiiich lasted until he was elected judge in 
iHj';. The judge in early life was a Republican,

one child has been born to him, Laura, bom July, 
1864.

Death of Judge Wilson. 

The following letter refers to the death of 
Judge Wilson, of Bedford, Ind., a brother of Mr.'-'. 
A. Shinn of this city. We add our tribute to Mr. 
Dunn's concerning the high worth and character 
of the judge, whose deatli will be a great loss to 
the bar of Indiana. 

Bedford, Ixd., April 26, 1SS5. 
Hon. S. a. Day, Fort Scott, Kansas. 

Dear Friend: — Only a week ago to-day you 
handed ine a letter from Judge Wilson. At this 
moment he lies in his cottage here sleeping his 
last sleep. He died of erysipelas at eight o'clock 
this morning. 

Three days ago he held a complaint good for 
me at ]31oomington, and to-day, bet'ore a higher 
tribunal, must plead his own case. 

He was a grand man ; one of the brightest

from among us, suddenly and peacefully. He 
never betrayed a friend or a client ; and never sold 
an opiiiiou. "Requescat iu pace." 

Moses F. Dunn. 



[From I'aoli Weekly yew?. April ^C'. ISS.^.] 
Hon. Francis Wilsoii. 

On last Sundav- the sad news reached Paoli 
that Judge Wilson had died at his home in Bed- 
ford on the morning of that day. 

The remains were brought to Paoli for inter- 
ment. Funeral services were held on Monday 
afternoon, and were attended by a %-ery large con- 
gregation. Able and interesting discourses were 
delivered by P.ev. Frazier, of the Presbyterian 
church, and Rev. John Stalker, of the Baptist 
church. \'cry nearly all the members of the Bar 
and county officers of the tenth circuit, and of the 
Ear of other circuits, were present. 

Judge Wilson's reputatioi: as an attorney and 
Jurist was not limited to his ov/n circuit. He v,-as 
known tliroughout the state as one of our ablest 
Judges. But perhaps the people of Orange county 
felt a livelier interest in his career than those of 
any other co.-nraunity. It wai here the fouiidation 
of that career v/as laid. Here his first iauiels as 
3n attorrov vr^re gaine-d. Hce those habit? of 



industry and promptness and inte';iity and fidelity 
which were so strongly characterized iu bis life, 
first attracted public notice aud gained the fast 
friendship of the many good citizens, who have 
stood by him in every vicissitude. 

He was not an eld man, being but foity nine 
years of age, and had his general health been 
good, he would have been in the full vigor oi 
manhood. His mind, however, was always clear 
and quick of perception. There seemed to be no 
such things as knotty law points with him. He 
would dispose of, in an instant, all questions that 
other lawyers had been puzzling their miuds over 
for days. If there was a better judge in the state 
of Indiana than Judge Wilson, no one knev; v/bo 
he was. 

When on llie bencli he knevr no politics, no 
religion, no friends, no foe, all stood on ec^nal 
footing in his court. 

He was the special champion of ti'.e rig 
the widov/ and orphan ; and woe was the 
the man who attempted to trifle with their 
in Judge Wilson's court. Socially he was a 
hearted man. The poor and oppressed alwa) 
his v.'armest sympathy. He gave liberally 
means to tliC cause of charity, and to aid frie 
distress Had I'e not d^^e so he v-o""! h-^'v 



JUDGK FRANCIS WILSOX. 



a wealthy man. As it is, he has left behind him 
a host of friends wEo will ever have a warm place 
ior his memory, in their hearts. 



[From Saturday Courier, Bloomineton, Inii.j 

A meeting of the members of the Bar was 
held here Sunday sfternoon to attend the funeral 
of Judge Wilson, to be held at Paoli. 

A committee was appointed to prepare suit- 
able resolutions and present them at the nieetir:g 
of the members of the Bar and citizens to be held 
Thursday night, at the court house. Also a com- 
mittee was appointed to drape the court room in 
mourning, which performed their v.-ork very taste- 
fully, draping the Judge's desk ar.d chair. A 
black streamer was also stretched in front of the 
court house, beneath a large photograph of Judge 
Wilson. Inside streamers of crape ran from post 
to post and festoons of crape were suspended from 
the walls in the rearof the Judge's desk. Thus it 
was that the place so recently busy scene was now 
turned into a house of mourning. 

Those who spoke at the memorial meeting 

Thursday night, were Major Mulkly, R. A. Fulk, 

.: R. East, W. F. Browning, J. V\^. Bn.skirk, 

;..'•.• !. E. Brant,, W. P. Rogers and J. E. Henley. 

Ir. Browning':, speech especially was very 



interesting and touching. His duties brought him 
near to Judge Wilson and he learned to cherrish 
him as a very dear friend. He said, no purer nor 
better Judge ever sat upon the bench of that court 
house. Many tears were shed during the meeting, 
for no public man ever endeared himself to the 
hearts of the people as had Judge Wilson. 

The following is the report of the committe 
on resolutions. 

WHKREA.S: It has pleased God to remove 
Hon. Francis Wilson, Judge of this, the tenth 
Judicial circuit, from our midst b}' death; 

Therefore: Be it resolved by the m.embers 
of Monroe county Bar and county oiilcers, that in 
our estimation Judge Wilson was an able, unriglit 
and honorable Judge, whose scholarly attainments 
added luster to his profound learning as a lawyer. 
That he was a good citizen, a sincere .^'riena, and 
a devoted and faithful husband and father. 

Resolved: That we shall ever rem-ember 
him as a man whose heart for his fellow man was 
tender and great. Ahvays on the side of right. 
As a lawyer, true to the cause he espoused, active, 
earnest, forceful. 

An opponent v,-hose power was only equaled 
by his affability and uniform kindness to the one 
he opposed.

THOMAS ADDISON WILSON. 



As a Judge, oue in whose heart and mind 
ceutered houesty, justice, discrimination, iu short 
all the qualificstions for that high office. By his 
death the community has lost a citizen of uuiur- 
passed integrity, the Bar, a member of almost im- 
uneqnalled ability, the profession, a Judge une.x- 
celled. 



Thoxnas AddiBon "Wilson. 

Thomas A. Wilson was born in Scott county, 
Ind., in /S40. Prior to the lebelHon he attended 
school and clerked in his father's store. He was 
the fifth of seven children born to Thomas A. and 
Ann Wilson. In July ii5'6i he enlisted iu com- 
pany E. Twenty-second Indiana \'o!unteers. In 
August he went by rail with the Twenty-second 
from Indianapolis to St. Louis. For ten months 
the Twenty-second was almost constantly on the 
march in South-west Missouri, being a portion of 
the Army of the South-west under Fremont and 
Curtis. Mr. Wilson's first e;:perience in battle 
was at Pea P-idge, Ark., and afterwards in battles 
of Pittsburg Lauding, Siege of Corinth, and Perry- 
ville. In this last named battle Company E loFt 
one half its members in killed and wounded. 

Less than three months later conunencing 



Dec. 31, 1862, the battle of Stone River was 
fonglit in which the Twentj-second again u\et 
with great loss in killed. ]Mr. Wilson was wounded 
on the first day of this battle, three balls taking 
efiect in less than ten minutes. One going through 
his body near the heart another breaking the bone 
of his thigh and the other going through his wrist 
He lay for nine days before his wounds were 
dressed and was in the hands of the enemy until 
the battle was over, which lasted about four days. 
His father and mother were at his bedside in t'ne 
field hospital at Murfeesboro soon after the bat- 
tle, his mother remaining with him until he was 
discharged and sent home in April, 1S63. After 
his discharge, while still using crutches, or a cane, 
he attended colltge at Hanover, Ind. for one year. 
Then learned the trade of a carpenter and tol- 
lowed it in Fort scott, Kansas, and Del Nor'^^, '"'■" 
for several years. Became a member 
Presbyterian church while at Hanover, se: 
Deacon in First church at Fort .Scott and E 
the Del Xorte church. He is still active in • 
work and is an enthusiastic prohibitionist; \\ 
of the delegates to the Pittsburg convent 
1896. 

In 18S0 he married Augusta Weldun an 
resides ii: Scottsburg, Ind.

•John Wilson. 

John Wilson wis boru in Lonoonclerry Comity, 
Ireland, about 1739. His fath(?r, William Wilson, 
was a wealthy lauded proprietor of a large and 
valuable entailed estate, which liad descended for 
several generations from father to eldest son. The 
heirs were always named William and John alter- 
nately, i. c. W'illiaui world name his tirst borii son 
John, and John in turn would nam.e \\\% eldest son 
William. Their ancestors \\ ere fiom Scotland and 
England. John Wilson received the estate at his 
father William's death in 1765 and soon after 
married a Scotch woman by name of IMargaret 
Moffat, by whom he had several children. During 
the insurrections in Ireland and trouble vs'ith 
England John took an active part in the political 
and religious conflicts. Eelongir:g to the Orange 
Organization, he opposed the Roman Catliolics 
with bitter auimc.=ity. He was also oppose'l to 
union with England and spared neithei time nor 
monc}' to further ti;e cause of liis party. 

With tlie imp-ulsive nature that we know lie 
possessed, we ma\ easih' conceive tlie fact that he 
made enemies and was more than generous to his 
friends. 

He lived extra'i'agantly. Kept hounds. Had 
frequent hunting parties on his estate. Enter- 
tair.ed with such lavish ho.spitaiiiy that he became 
fiiianciaii)' cmbijTa^^std. 

The inability to pa)' iiis. debts ■:wc 'Itipaii irig 
of Iielands independence, induced h.iin to lake 



passage for America in 1785, but he dieJof slrip 
fever on the voyage aud was buried in tlie sea, 

\Vi!liam, his eldest son and heir, a lad of 
eighteen at the time of his fath^^r's death, came to 
America in 1790 and settled in Peniisylvania near 
1:!S cousin, another William Wilson, whose daugh.- 
ter Margaret he married in 17^8. This cousin had 
married Elizabeth Bruce, a native of Scotland, 
and lineal descendant of King Robert Bruce. They 
liad seven children, of Vy'hom Margaret was the 
eldest. After their marriage u'illiani and I'Niargaret 
lived in Wasliington County, Penn., until e'ght 
sons were born to tiiem, two died in childhood — 
George and James. In iSiv they removed to Ohio 
and in 1816 came down the Ohio river in a fiat 
boat to southern Indiana ; settled in Scott County, 
v.drere W'illiam died in 1855 snd Margaret in 1S56. 



Henry "Wilson. 

Hcrir)-, another son of John Wilson's, came 
to America about the year 1799 under the follow- 
ing circumstances: He learned that England 
feared another revolt in nortlieru Ireland and v.as 
going to disarm all opposed to her rule. Henry 
had a \'cry fine gun which had belonged to iiis 
father. thi;> he secreted in a bog to prevent th.e 
King's o:ciccrs from gettii:g it ; but a:i English spy 
saw him and led tiie f.fficers, who were collecting 
arms, to the .spot v/hcre it v.'a.s buried in the bog. 
Henry wa>; d'rspe;-a''r at the loss of ]•;- vahiabic 
relic, and a'.te:npted by force to rc-ck.im it. }:■/ 



HKNRV wn.sox. 



severely wonsded the officer and received a sword 
cut in his owa breast wliich "left an ugly icar. As 
tlie penalty for resisting the King's ofScers was 
death, Heurv was secreted by an uncle until he 
secured passage for hini to come to America. He 
came to Pennsylvania and married Jane Dill, by 
whom lie Iiadeight children. Ho died on his faim 
near Washington, Peun. His son Samuel J. 
Wilson was an eloquent Divine, a!id one of the 
most prominent men in the Presbyterian church. 
His biography is given elsewhere. 

Thomas Wilson, also son of John Wilson, 
cnme to America and settled in ilorganfiekl, Ky., 
about iSoi. He married; but no children or grand 
children have been found. 

Another Thomas Wilson came to America in 
1S12 and married Hanna/-,Brown in Washington 
County, Fenn.. Tvro of their sons, James and 
William, married and removed to Monroe County, 
Ohio. This last named Thomas Wilson who 
married Miss Brown was a nephew to John who 
died on ship aad a brother toVi'iiiia^who married 
Elizabeth Bruce. He died in Washington County, 
Pa. Thia Hannah Brown was a sister to John

Of Margaret Moffat who married John Wilson 
in Londonderry county, Ireland, in 1767 we know 
but little. She was a Scotch woman. Tradition 
says she was of same family as Robert Moffat, the 
celebrated missionary, born in Scotland in 1795. 

A letter written by her to her son William in 
1S12 is still in existence, and it will have place 
here, a.^ it shows better than any other way the 
motherly and loving Chiistian spirit of the dear 
old woman.

Thomas Biowu Wilson tvas born on his 
father's farm in Washington county, Pa., Nov. 22, 
1822. He entered Jefferson College at the neigh- 
boring to'ivn of Canonsburg, and graduated in 
1849, taking the second honors of his class. He 
giad.iatcd from the Wc:;tern Theological Se.mi- 
nary in 1852. Hs was licensed to preacii Apiii, 
.185.2, by what v.ts then called the Presbyter) of 



Ohio, ar-d was ordained by tiiC same Presbytery. 

He was pastor of the v'-^ixth church of Pirts- 
burg, Pa., 1852-55. and of the Presbsteriau church 
of Xenia, O., 1S55-5S. He married Miss IMarga- 
ret P. Saunders in 1853. He died v^•hile ou vaca- 
tion at Canonsburg, V?... Sept. 21, 1S5S. He left 
two children, Rev. Maurice E. ^'\'i]son, now pastor 
of the First church of Dayton, O., and Rev. Cal- 
vin D. Wilson, now pastor at Franklin, O. 

Rev. Thomas E. Wilson v,-as a man of fine 
pulpit pov.ers, and deep piety. He was an excel- 
lent scholar, and an attractive and iuspiiing orator, 
and had he lived longer would iiave taken a prom- 
inent position in the church. His wife wa.s a 
woman of great strength of character, and noble 
qualities. Both of these persons have left an 
abiding impression upon all who knew them. 

Samuel Jennings Y7ilson, 1). D. 

This biography of Dr. Wilson is iouuded upon 
an extended memoir compiled by William H. 
Jeffers, D. D. , an' eminent Presbyterian minister. 

Samuel J. Wilson, D. D., son of Kenr\- and 
Jane Dill Wilson, was born in Washington county, 
Pennsylvania, July 19, 1828. His father emi- 
grated from the colony of Scotch in Northern 
Ireland and settled in Pennsylvania. lu religious 
belief tfeury was a stanch Presbyterian. The 
mother of Samuel, Jane Dill Wilson, was daughter 
of Thomas Diii, v:i:ose ancestois weic i:''-'.iii- 
guishcd for theii piety and self-sacrincing patriot-

isui. Jaiie was a woman of imusnai faith and 
piety. Tiie parents of rianiuel v,-cre faithrul iu 
the religious inscruclion of tlieir children. 'Die 
;.;o.u^/s instruccion and example determined in 
no small degree the tenor of wSaniuel's subsequent 
life, and he ofteu expressed his deep gratitude to 
her. 

He was uijjeteeu years of age when he entered 
Washington college. Though reserved a)id unas- 
suming in his manner, young Wilson was soon 
recognized by his class-mates and throughout tlie 
institution as a man of more than ordinary abilit}-. 
He was systemaijc, painstaking and persistent. It 
does not appear that during his entire college 
course, a single failure was recorded against him 
iu the class-rocHi. 

Daring the second year of his college life the 
Presbyterian church at Washington was blessed 
with a revival of great power. Fift}-nine names 
were recorded on die church roll a.? a result of that 
revival : among these is the name of Samuel J. 
Wilson. His spiritual nature was stirred to its 
utmost depths, and the remc-nibrarice of those 
revival scenes rcEiained fresh in his mind ever 
afterward. 

After his grr^duatiou in 1S52 lient once entered 
the Theological Seminary at Alkgl'.any City, Pa., 
and completed his course there in 1S55. But his 
connection with the S--:ninary v/as not to r, :-;;;i:: i.i.t 
till his death. Pie '.v-?.h instruclf^;: of Eccicniaslical 
History and Hebrew. After two years as instructor 



he v,-as advanced to the full professoiship by elec- 
tion ill the General Assembly of 1857. At tlie 
death of Dr. Jacobus iu IS76 Dr. Wilson became 
the senior professor and presiding officer of the 
f'lCV'.lty. Thus he entered upon vv'hat proved to be 
the great v>'ork of his life. 

Pli.s tirst work in the pulpit after he was 
licensed to preach was at Steubenville, O. , and 
afterwards at Wheeling, and at Sharpsburg. He 
consented to take these charges always with the 
understanding that no services should be expected 
of him which would interfere with his regular 
work in the Seminary. In 1861 he was induced 
to undertake the suppl}' of the Sixth Church of 
Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. This church had been 
for some time vacant, had a membership of only 
forty, and was burdened with debt. Through his 
earnest labors and co-operation of the little flock, 
the process of restoration began almost immediately 
and twenty-two were added at the first communion. 
Ten years later there v.-as a membership or four 
hundred and sixty-six. He ministered to this 
church for fifteen years as stated supply and regu- 
lar pastor. 

As a man and as a preacher, Dr. "Wilson was 
thoroughly in earnest. There was that in his 
manr.er which indicated th.at he v.'as conscious of 
the divi:ie presence. lii.-j power in the pulpit v/as 
widely ;ecogn:zed, and his services v"" in. yveji 
demand iur .special occ'sioiis.

v,-as ofteu he.rrd in the pulpit aud on the platfoiiii 
of city and countiy urging to loyally and self-sac- 
rifice in support oi the North.- 

In 1S74 he was called to preside as IModerator 
over the General Assembly at St. Louis and there 
received the appointment to the conference which 
was held in London, England, in July, 1875, for 
the purpose of maturing a plan for the confedera- 
tion of the Presbyterian church throughout the 
woild. This con'erejice resulted in the organiza- 
tfon cf the Presbyterian Alliance, with its general 
councils to be heid once in three years. He was 
a member of the first of these councils, which met 
in Edinburgh, Scotland, July 3, 1S77, ^°^ ^^ ^^^^ 
time of his deatJi he was under appointmerit as 
delegate to the tlnrd general council held in Bel- 
fast, Ireland. 

During the 5ast years of Dr. Wilson's life his 
health seemed fairly good ; but after the close of 
his last year's nrcrk in the Seminary his health 
became impaired. He preached with great earn- 
estness on Sabbsth, July 15. 'I'he next day he 
pronounced the benediction at the funeral services 
of an acquainta;ice, which was the last time his 
voice was heard in public. Three days later he 
was unable to leave his room. The disease was 
pronounced by his physician to be typhoid fever, 
and before it had run its course his strength and 
vitnlity •pere ex'iaiKte.l. Toward the last iu 
answer to the Vj-"Af:r inquiry whether he vrauled 
anything, he whis^-ered, "Rest," ana v.-hen further 



asked if he were at peace, he replied, with pecnl- 
dislinctness, " Perfect peace." On Friday morn- 
ing, August 17, 1S53, he fell asleep. 

Dr. Wilson was married in 1859 ^^ Mary 
Elizabeth Davis, a woman of fine spirit and lovely 
character, a favorite Vv-ith all who knew her. She 
died in the summer of 18S0, after a prolonged ill- 
ness, leaving a son, Robert Davis, aud two daugh- 
ters, Eliza Cochran, now Mrs. Charles I\IcKnight, 
and Jane Dell, now Mrs. William Walker. The 
son was a member of the Pittsburgh bar, with 
unusuall}' bright prospects of success at the time 
ol his death in 1S90.

General Samuel Milroy. 
General Samuel Milroy was born August 14, 
1780, in Kishakoquilla Valley, in Mifflin County, 
Pennsylvania. His grandfather, John Milroy, was 
a native of Scotland, and was a lineal desceudant 
of Rcbtit Erucc, the heroic king of Scotl.^.nd. 
John Milroy married Maitha Bruce in 1746. She 
was r.lso a desce!!dnr>t ^^f koh'^rt Rrnce and w-ts 
probably a cousiu ol uci iiu.'iia.iC's. In the 
attempted levolutiou in Scotlaud in 1744; in which 
Ch-r^-rlc-.s Stuart, the la>t heir to the throu^.: of 



Scotland, sought to regain the kingdom of his 
ancestors from the English ; John }>Iiiroy eiigaged 
heartily in the cause of Stuart, but after the 
defeat of Stuart at the battle of Cullodcu, his 
followers were proscribed and pursued without 
mere}-. John >.'il:oy, witli his young v.'ife, escaped 
to Ireland, atid soon emigrated to the American 
colonies ; settled near Carlisle, Penn-sylvania, and 
became ■;■. ■■.•ro-peroiis fnrmer. He bad a familv of 
two boys and three giris, ^.nd Vyss ;-iier.vard.-s v.'ith 
his eldest son, killed bv ih.e Indiar-,. His Iiouse

witli all its contends was biuneu during one of the 
massacres at Car/:.;e. Among t'-e valuable licir- 
looms burned were liis familv record and coat of 
arms. 

The only surviving- son, Henry, after arriviiM^ 
at maturity, mr.rried Agnes ^IcCorniack, and 
settled in Mifflin County, Penn. Henry had a 
family of four boys and two girls. Samuel, the 
subject of this sktlch, was the third son, and when 
eleven years of age, his father died. He was soon 
afterward apprenliced to learn the trade of car- 
penter and joiner. In 1S03 he married Frances 
Alexander and settled in Center County, Pa., fol- 
lowing his trade until 1806, in wliich ytai his 
wife died, leaving two children, a daughter and a 
son. Tlie daugnler was the first v.'ife of Jolin 
Adams of Carroll County, Ind. The son Henry 
Bruce Alilroy, who was the first sheriff of Carroll 
Count}', Ind. 

vSoon after the death of his wife, Samuel set 
out with his elder brother, John, to try their for- 
tunes in the Grer.l West. They came across the 
Alleghany ^Mountains to Pittsburgh, Pa., and 
descended the 0]i:o river on a !iat-boat to Cincin- 
nati. They left Cincinnati with the intention of 
going to St. Louis, but when opposite Bardstown, 
Nelson County, Ky., in v,-hich county resided a 
large number of their old neighbors, as well as 
.some leialivcs, they concluded to turn .sct;ti: r.bor.t 
twenty-iive miles and enjo)' iheinieb.'es for a l;me_ 
among old friends and relatives. 



Aiter visiting their friends, where they were 
waimiy welcomed, they both went to work, Sam- 
uel at his trade, and John to surveying. In about 
a year, John married Isabella Houston, by whom 
he had ten children. The eldest was Dr. Henry 
A. ililroy, of Delphi, Ind. 

Samuel, after working at his trade for several 
months, still had dreams of making a fortune in 
St. Loiiis, and in the fall of 1S07, in company with 
George Wilson, a relative, of the same trade ';<,'ith 
himself, traveled on foot to St. Louis, where they 
woiked at their trade very successfully for about 
ten months, when both were takei? down with 
bilious fever, from which tliey did not reco\er t<:<i: 
six weeks. As soon as they were able to travel 
they set oui en their recurn to Nelson Count\', Ky. 
They struck the Ohio river at Evansville, and 
v/ere offered v.'ages as hands on a keel-boat loaded 
with goods for Louisville. They accepted the 
ofler, and on the way up an incident occurred that 
showed the sincerity of Wilson's friendship. 

While passing a large drit't, Samuel sav.' a log 
sticking out of the upper edge, and supposing it 
was solid and stationary, placed the end of l:is 
setting pole against it, then threw his weight upon 
the pole, for the purpose of propelling the boat ; 
but the log suddenly turned and he went into the 
river h.cad foremost. Wilson rushed to the place 
.viicre !ii< friei:d h."l gone down, and plun^rd 'u 
after him witlioul a momeut's hesitation, kr.ov/ir.g 
that he could not. swi'.n. Samuel kept his presence

of mind, and tliought it best to let himself go 
dowu to the bottom, and then by a vigorous spring 
send himself to the surfiice, but finding the water 
very deep, after sinking fifteen or twenty feet, he 
commenced to work for the surface. Upon resell- 
ing the top, Wilson came to the rescue. He called 
to the men on the boat to throw out a rope, whicii 
was quickly done, they seized it when only a foot 
from the drift, under which the water was 
sweeping witii a strong current, and were drawn 
on board just in lime to save their lives. 

Upon arriving in Nelson county, Samuel 
resumed his trade with his usual energy. In 1810 
he married Martha Houston, a young sister of his 
brother John's v;ife, by whom he had ten children, 
seven sons and three daughters. Thres of the 
boys died young. The eldest, Gen. Robert H. 
Milroy, will be given special notice elsewhere. 

In 1812 tlie Indians destroyed a settlement ;n 
Scott County, Indiana Territory, killing three 
men, five women and sixteen children. Samuel 
Milroy raised a company in Kentucky and reached 
the scene of the massacre in just four days after 
its occurrence. Tliey found the ruins of the 
houses still smoking, and the bloody, mangled 
corpses of the victims scattered in ghastly array. 
IMilroy with his vobmteers determined to follow 
the Indians, and followed their trail for several 
days, bvit - f;^" cf sno';^• covered the foot-prints 
and they were compelled to give up the pur.suit. 

During this scout he had a good opportunity 



for observing the country and forn-.ed a fa\-oiable 
opinion of a portion of Washington County, I;-,d. 
Al'ter his return he became disgusted with, the 
institution of slavery, and determined to emigrate 
to Indiana Territory, from which slavery v-fas 
excluded by the ordiuance of 1777. He sold his 
property in Kentucky in 1814, and in company 
with his brother James came to Washington 
County, lud., and purchased one hundred and 
sixty acres of land. Here he built a house and 
moved his family to their new home. 

In 1816 the congress of the United vStates 
passed an act to enable the people of Indiana Ter- 
ritory to form a constitution and state govevnruent. 
This act required an election to be held in the 
counties to choose delegates to a constitutional 
convention. Samuel Milroy was elected one of 
the delegates from Washington county, and was a 
member of three of the most important commit- 
tees of the convention. 

In the following August he was elected one of 
the representatives from Washington count}', and 
v,'as re-elected a member of the legislature from 
that county for nine years successively, and was 
speaker of the house at Jhe session of 1821. 

He was comraissiojied a major by Governor 
.Posey in 1816, a colonel by Governor Jennings in 
181 7, and a brigadier-general by the same t^over- 
uor in 1.B19. 

He sold his farm in Washington County in 
1826, and in company with his son Henry iJruce

INIilroy, lie came out to ihe Wabash, and finaljy 
located in Carroll County, Ind. Near the close of 
the year 1827 he was appointed by John Ouincy 
Adams to examine the land offices of Illinois. In 
1822 he was elected to the legislature from the 
district composed of the counties of Montgomery, 
Fountain, Warren, Tippecanoe and Carroll, and 
shortly after the election he unexpectedly received 
the appointment to examine the land offices of 
Illinois, from President Jackson Soon afterward 
he received from the same president the appoint- 
ment as Register of the Land Office at Crawfords- 
ville, Ind., an ofBce then worth three thousand 
dollars per annum. He thus held three offices at 
one time and it was with him a matter of deep 
solicitude v.-hich office should be retained and 
which resigned. Finally by the urgent solicita- 
tions of his friends, he concluded to accept the 
registcrship, and resign the other tvro offices. 

He was a delegate to the first Democratic 
national convention ever held in the United States 
which met in Baltimore in 1S22, and nominated 
General Jackson for his second term. He was a 
delegate and attended every succeeding Democratic 
national convention from that time to 1843, when 
Polk was nominated. This was the last conveu- 
tio;i prior to his death. 

In 1835 he was appointed by President Jack- 
son one cf the Hoard of \'isitors 'o th^ Uiiiied 
States Military Acrdet -.y at West Point, and. nobly 
discharged that duty. In 1836 lie was elected 



state senator from the counties of Carroll and 
Clinton, Ind. lu 1839 he was appointed agent for 
the !\Iiami and Pottawatomie Indians, and in 1840 
succeeded in purchasing from the ^.liami tribe, 
their great reservation, which the government had 
for many j-ears, through different agents and special 
commissioners, tried in vain to purchase. 'This 
last office he held up to the time of liis death, 
which occurred on the 26th of i\Iay, 1S45, at 
Delphi, Indiana. His death was caused by erysip- 
elas, of v.-l'.ich disease liis ton Bruce had died two 
weeks before. 

Gen. Samuel .Milroy's house v/as the home of 
hospitality, where friends and strangers found a 
ready welcome. 

Such is a brief outline of one who in his day 
was the most piominent citizen of the state of 
ludiana. 

From "History of Carroll County, Indiana," 
by Dr. Stcv.-art. 

Gen. Robert H. Milroy. 

Robert Houston Alilroy was the eldest son of 
Gen. Samuel Milroy by his second wife, Martha 
Houston, aud was therefore of same'Bruce ancestry 
and great grand-son of John Milroy from Scotland. 

Robert was born in Washington County, Ind- 
iana, Ju.ne I J, 1 816, and was graduated at Norwich 
University, Vc, in 1843) taking degree.s, both in 
the Cla.'zjical and Jvrilitr.ry DCj:.^rtii.-.tL!ts. 

In llic svar with Mexico he served as cantMiu 
in the ist Indiana "Volunteers. He studied law, 



GENERAL ROBKRT H. MILROY. 



was admitted to the bar in 1849, and in 1S50 was 
graduated from the law department of Indiana 
University. 

lie was a member of the constitutional con- 
vention of Indiana in 1S49-50, and in 1851 v/as 
appointed judge of eightli judicial circuit court of 
Indiana. 

At the opening of tlie Civil War he issued a 
call for volunteer.s, and was made captain, becom- 
ing colonel of the gtli Indiana Volunteers on the 
26th of April, r86i. Served in West Virginia 
under McClellan aad Rosecratis. Received a com- 
niissiou as brigadier-general Feb. 6, 1862, and was 
made major-general of volunteers in ilarch, 1863. 
He had charge of the second division of the 8th 
army corps, statioi;ed at Vi'inchester, \'a. In June, 
1863, he was attacked by nearly all of Lee's army, 
on its wa\' to Pennsylvania. Gen. Milroy resisted 
this superior force for three days, ui.til his ammu- 
nition and provisions were exhausted and then cut 
his way out by night, losing a large portion of his 
forces. 

This retention of Lee's army at W^iuchester 
enabled Gen. Meade to fight advantageously at 
Gettysburg; v/hen otherwise the great battle would 
have taken place farther north. In 1865 he 
resigned from the army, became a tru3l.ee cf the 
Wabash and Erie canal in 1868, which place he 
held for some time. 

He was appointed superiritenderi; cf Indian 
affairs in Vi/asliington Territory, and continued in 



the office until 1S74. 

He w.is a])poi',:;ed Indian agent in 1S75 iincl 
reappointed in 18S5. 

During his law prfictice his uniform kinc"r.e.~s 
and faithful attention to the interests of his clients 
won the respect and esteem of his brelhreri at the 
bar. 

He was a ruling elder in the Presbjteriar. 
church, and died at Olyinpia, Washinton, i\iarch 
24, 1890, as he had lived a firm believer in the 
Christian faith and of a sure hope of imtnortality.

From a Letter. 

The following is from a letter to Val. A. Mil- 
roy, Jan. 25, 189S. 

"My parents, James Milroy and Vv'ife, emi- 
grated from Kirkcondbright, Scotland, to western 
New York in 181S. Three children, David, Jane 
and James, were born in Scotl-ind. The ollrers, 
William, Ebenezer (myself), Agnes. Margnret, 
Mary and Jobu, v,--rc bc:n in Yorlz, L;v;u^::;onc

lionie. Grandj-iother was lOO years old wbeii she 
died ill 1835. 

David came to Logan County, O. , and left 
three sons, two of whom, 'William and Robert 
Bruce Milroy, ?.re in San Francisco, Cal. 

James lefi three sons, and three daughters. 
The eldest. Dr. W. F. ]Milioy, is a physician in 
Omaha, Neb, John is in Houston, Texas, George 
is in N. Y. 

William I\Ii!roy was a Covenanter minister in 
Logan County, O. He left a family of eleven 
children. His eldest son, William, is professor of 
Latin in Get eva College, Beaver Falls, Pa. He 
studied iu Yale and graduated in Hopkins Univer- 
sity. One other son is a lawyer and one a physi- 
cian. The _voi?uge?t is a student in Beaver Fails, 
Pa. The naints of father's brothers are John, 
William and Peter. I think we can trace our 
auctstry back to Gilbert and William Milroy men- 
tioned in ''Scots Worthies," who owing to perse- 
cutions were arrested, their ears cut off, property 



confiscated, and they banished to Jamaica, and 
sold as slaves. In 1710, Gilbert, returning, v^rote 
a history of their sufferings. Please note, giand- 
mother, whom I so well knew, was born less than 
thirty years after. 

Dr. W. F. Milroy, of Omaha, Neb., has given 
much research to this family record. Found 
information in old libraries of New York and 
Baltimore. Also Prof. W. Milroy aided him in 
information gotten from Yale libraries. The 
result of Dr. Jslilroy's labors is a famih' tree of 
considerable information. 

At a meeting of the General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian church held iu Omaha some time 
ago, your father. Gen. R. H. IMilroy, was a dele- 
gate. Dr. ■\Iilroy sought hiu) out and had an 
interview, the result of which was they concli^ded 
ihey were distant relatives. 

Very truly Yours, 
Ebkxezkr I^.Iilroy, 
Northwood, Logan County, Ohio.

tives and eight years in the Senate. He was a

constitution of Kentucky, and was count}- attor- 
ney for twenty years in Logan County, Kentucky. 



Samuel Miligan Houston. 

Samuel M. Houston, third son of Alexander 
and Margaret Mitchell Ho'iston. was born in Nel- 
son County, Kentucky, No\ . i-g^ uid was mar- 
ried to Rebecca Wilson Dec. 29 1825 To them

ters. Erasmus P., the eldest son, was county

ren are now living except James Otis, who resides

Samuel taught school when a young man and 
was justice of the peace from 1S32 to 1836. Was 
elected Commissioner in 1S44, and was superin- 
tendent of the poor farm in Washington County,

in iS highly respected and admired by all who 

had known him. Rebecca died a few years later at 
the home of her son, Daniel Houston, near New 
Philadelphia, Ind. 



J. S. M. Houston. 

The following special telegram to the IVoi'ld 
describes the standing of J. S. M. Houston in the 
State L^niversity of Missouri. 

Special lo the iVorld: 

"J. S. M. Houston of Raymore, Cass County, 
Mo., is the valedictorian of the 189S law class of 
the state university. Mr. Houston was born at 
Clarksburg, Mouiteaux County, Mo., 1872. He 
was raised on a farm, attending school four or five 
months in the year. Later he attended the State 
Normal and graduated with distinction in 1890. 
After this he taught school. In 1S95 he married 
Miss IMaggie Miller of Johnson County, Kansas, 
and moved to Columbia to study law. In 1S96 he 
won the "Zealer Scholarship" from Boone County 
in a rigid competitive examination. In 1897 he 
won the "Rollins Scholarship," $50 in cash for 
standing at the head of the Junior Law Class 
Last month INIr. Houston got second honors in the 
senior law thesis contest. His thesis will be pub- 
lished in a leading law journal and bound for 
library use. 

What proves ;\[r. Houston's ability more than 
anything else is his winning the valedictory this 
\ear, in a class composed of fifty-two members, 
and Judge Martin pronounces it the best class ever 
graduated from the law school. So to stand at its 
head is an honor indeed."

From a Letter. 

A few years ago Anna EllioU of Blooming- 
ton, Illinois, made a genealogical tree of our 
branch of the Houston family, beginning with 
Christopher Houston, born in North Carolina in 
1744, whose father, John Houston, came from 
Scotland to Pennsylvania early in the eighteenth 
century. The oldest Houston I know of in Mis- 
souri is my grandfather, Christopher C. Houston, 



born in North Carolina in 1S04, moved to Ken- 
tucky and then to Mo. His address is now Grain 
Valley, Jackson County, Mo. Gen. Samuel Hous- 
ton of Texas and grandfather are cousins. 
J. S M. Houston, 

Ray more, Mo. 
This John Houston mentioned above was 
brother to James Houston from whom we start our 
branch of the family. H. W. S. 



James Houston, came from Wales to Scotland, then to America about 1730. Settled first in Dela- 
ware, afterward in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, moving to Kentucky in 1793. Married first an English 
woman by name of Jane Elliott, Second a native of Pennsylvania by name of Abigail Brown. Died in 
Kentucky, Sept. S, 1S08.

LOWRV AND OCHELTREE. 



Ann Lowry Wilson. 

Ann Lowry Wilson, daughter of Joseph and 
Nancy Och<ltree Lowry, was born in Bo:-tourt 
County, Virginia. Her father was a native of 
that state ; her mother was born in Arma^, Ire- 
land, and came with her parents, Michael and 
Mary OchfUree, to America in 1793. At that 
time Nancy was eighteen years old. The captain 
of the ship in which they came lost his bearings 
at sea and sailed for several weeks far out of his 
course. As there were several hundred emigrants 
on board, provision became almost exhausted be- 
fore their signal of distress was sighted by the 
captain of another ship, who came to their relief, 
set them on the right course, and enabled them to 
laud safely in j^Jk/ ///<^i?(/3^'V 

The second daughter, Mary Ochrlltree, mar- 
ried a gentleniau by name of Clinton, to whom 
she was engaged in Ireland. He was teaching 
school in J^-^ ^7 »"/■< ' ^'^ time of their marriage, 



which was soon after the Ochcltrees landed. The 
Ochfltree family left Mary with her husband and 
came to Augusta County, Virginia. No word 
ever came to them from Mary and nothing is 
known of her fate. 

Rachel Ochiltree married William Young in 
\'irginia. Nancy Ochiltree, the third daughter 
and mother of Mrs. Wilson, had a family of seven 
children when she and her husband, Joseph Lowry 
removed from Virginia to Indiana in 181S. Ann 
was but six \ears old when her parents came to Jef- 
ferson county, Indiana. They afterward settled on a 
farm near Lexington, Scott County, Indiana, where 
Ann was married to Thomas Brown Wilson, Oct. 
1S33. Before her marriage she had united with 
the Methodist Church, but as hex husband was a 
Presbyterian, she joined that denomination, which 
was the faith of her parents. She has always gone 
forward in discharge of duty, though called upon 
to pass through many trials, and to bear the load

of mauy and exacting responsibilities. Her 
Christian faith aiid fortiti;de uot only helps iior to 
bear her own sorrows, but makes her a comforter 
to otlieri. As a devoted Christian niotlier, and 
sj'iL^pathetic frieiid, her life has been full of good

presided over one parish iu Scotland for over 6fty 
years. United ^u his mother's side witli the old- 
est families of Virginia, the Campbells and tlie 
Lowrys, he possessed iu the highest degree, that 
honest, fearless :!etermination cf ciiaracter v.-li''cL 
lias been the b!)ne and sinew of so many of our 
great men. Tlie judge's father, Richard L. 
Dickson, v,'as sent in an official capacity to th.e 
English Colonies, came to America, met and 
married Rachel Lowry in 1825, near Madison, 
Indiana. Afterirards settled on a farm in Scott 
County, Indiana. Two boys were the issue of 
this m.arriage. 

In 1835 the father died, leaving the widow 
and two sons, John and William. The family 
moved to Ranover, In.diana, where there w?s a 
good scliool. John volunteered to learn the trade 
of cooper, while William attended college, first at 
Hanover, and afterwards at IVIiami University, 
Oxford, Ohio. Here he swept out the recitation 
rooms for liis tuition, and cooked h.is own scant}' 
meals. 

He was graduated from old Miami in 1S46. 
Wliile teaching school in Ktiuucky he studied 
law, was admitted to the practice at Lexington, 
Kentucky, ivj 1840. and afterward attended Har- 
vard Lkw bciiool. While lliere, Chief Justice 
Psi.rker, his preceploj, picked him out as an unasu- 
ally bright, honest y--j-.:nc,' man, and made him c;;e 



of liis hoi'.seliold. He graduated at Harvard iu 
1S50. Afterward, without moi:e\', v.'ithov.t a 
friend in the city, alone, with only a letter ot in- 
troduction from Justice Parker to Judge Wright, 
v,-e find young Dickson iu Cincinnati, 0. I)y 
tutoring in Judge Wright's family, teaching else- 
wliere, and by reporting as a space reporter on the 
old Cincinnati Times, he managed to make a 
living. In 1852 he married Annie Parker, 
daughter of Dr.- John Parker of Lexington, Ken- 
tuckv, and came again to Cincinnati. Although 
almost an entire stranger he ran on the independ- 
ent ticket for prosecuting attorney of the Police 
Court. To the surprise of everyone, and most ct 
all to himself, he was elected. 

\Ve iind him afterward rapidly r'si-g to th?: 
front rank in his profession. His arguments under 
the Fugitive Slave Law, and in the celebrated 
Blind Tom case, are well remembered. At the 
age of thirty-one he v.-as appointed, by Goverr.or 
Chase, Judge of the Common Pleas Court. On 
account of extreme youth, and younger looks, he 
v.-as bitterly opposed by some of the older micmbers 
of the bar, but by hard work, uniform courtesy to 
all, and just decisions, he left the bench foi the 
practice of law, loved and respected by all. 

He was a presidential elector for Lincoln 
vvhe-i he v,'as fir*;* elected. During the war he 
was tiie Cui^'ideutial fntud of J,i::' (-in, Siaiilvi.') 
aiid Chase. He spent )nuch of his iv.v.-z at Wash- 
ins-ton. D. C. and had much to do wiih fr-^minj:;

the Kniancipatioi! Proclamation. Whiie at V/ash- 
ingtoii he was teiidered by Genera! McCleilan the 
position of Assistant Judge Advocate General, 
with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He spent 
some \veeks at the front, but a certain distrust of 
the methods and men employed compelled him, to 
decline. 

The war over, he took a leading and active 
part in reconstruction. His ready pen and active 
brain wete employed in the interest of his party 
and his countr\'. 

In 1866, in the prime of his manhood, at the 
age of thirty-uirit, he w.qs stricken down by sick- 
ness, followed hy extreme nervous prostration, 
from which he ntver recovered. Foreign travel 
and the best medical advice of this country and 
Europe were trie<i in vain. Notwithstanding his 
terrible physical suffering, the last twenty five 
years of his life ".vcre spent iu writing and devotion 
to his family. He was always a hard student and 
was translating Thier's History from the French 
at the time ol his death. 

He constantly wrote for the magazines of the 
country and the daily press, always on politics and 
sociology. His well known initials, "W. M. D," 
will long be reniembered and their absence 
regretted. His style was peculiarly concise, terse, 
perspicuous. His stirring sentneces were such 

7f:?is/ be understood. . . . 



Public and private dishonesty he could not 
brook, but for the unfortunate or wronged his 
kindly heart prompted him to a generous sympa- 
thy. l''or some years before his death he was 
president of the Trustees of the Ohio Medical 
College. 

Before Judge Dickson retired from the practice 
of law his income was unusually large, consider- 
ing the few years of his professional career a;:d 
the best care - was taken of it. His wealth and 
noble virtues obtained a high social position that 
v.-as enough for hi:n. He should be held up as a 
noble example of the eminence obtainable by 
energy and assiduity, iu our fortunate country. 

In religion Judge Dickson had accepted tiie 
views of his brotlier, who had decided to study for 
himself the words of the blesicd Lcid as fou:.d iu 
the Gospels. The substance of these he found 
in two great commandments, "Thou shalt !o\-e the 
Lord thy God with all thy heart and soul and 
mind," and the second which is like unto it, 
"Thou sbalt love thy neighbor as thyself. " He 
devoted the superior mind which God had given 
him to practical thinking. The moral aspect of a 
transaction h.e set apart to be considered b) itself. 

His character as a public man, a private citi- 
zen, and a loving father, stands as a shining light. 
Take him all in all, his place will be h'lrd to iill. 
I'he public needs a censor. None ccu;a !,"-- foa!!'.! 
more uoble and honest thun he.
