Notes for JOHN WILLIAM WILSON:

~~~~~ John William Wilson has been remembered for his kindness to

others and his benevolent spirit. He was known fondly as the "marrying

parson". People would come from surrounding counties to be married by

him. He performed over three hundred ceremonies. The following is a

copy of a letter given to Harvena Johnson. It is a copy of the

commeration speech given in 1969 at the dedication of his homestead

being given an historical marker. I do not know who wrote it, however,

a copy of it ( minus the County Cencus records that are included here

) can be found in the Cooper Library in the collection of the

Historical Society.

"JOHN WILLIAM WILSON

'John William Wilson was born in Smith County, Tennessee, Oct. 3,

1841. He was son of Allen Green Wilson, who was born in Smith County,

Tennessee in 1819. His mother was E.M. Askins Wilson, born in

Virginia, near Richmond. His paternal grandparents were Robert Wilson

and Celine A. Robinson of North Carolina. His maternal grandparents

were Presley Askins and Mary Finch Askins, both of North Carolina.

These records are taken from the family Bible, now in the possession

of Mrs. P. L. Ayles, Lake Creek, Texas, Rt. 1.

'From the [BO:1850 Laclede County, Missouri:BO] we find the

following:

'No. 143

'John William Wilson's Civil War Records give the following

information:

'Enlisted Jan. 18, 1862, Pvt., Co. B. 4 Reg't, Missouri Infantry,

Confederate, at Springfield, Mo., by Maj. Wood, for duration of war.

Age 20 years. Wounded in battle before Corinth, Oct. 3, 1862 and left

at hospital. (Later, he told of being left on the Battle Field, with

dead all around. He was found the next day by troops removing the

dead.) Appeared on list of paroled Confederate Prisioners, wounded,

and nurses delivered at Iuka, Miss. to Surgeon J. B. Bond, C. S. Army,

on account of government; captured at the Battle of Corinth, Oct. 3rd

and 4th, 1862. Historic Roll, which was from the original record,

which was borrowed from Mrs. Wright L. Smith, through Capt. James W.

Allen of St. Louis, Mo.- A. G. 1291598. Engaged Elkhorn C. S. A.

volunteers, was enlisted by Capt. Wood, of 1st. Reg't of Missouri

Vol., Springfield, Mo., on the 19 day of Jan. 1862, to serve three

years; he was born in Smith Co., in the state of Tennessee, is 21

years of age, 5 feet 10 inches high, fair complexion, blue eyes, sandy

hair, and by occupation when enlisted, a farmer during the last year.

Said soldier has been unfit for duty. I certify that I have carefully

examined the said John W. Wilson of Captain Spangler's Co., and find

him to be incapable of performing the duties of a soldier in field,

because of-----Partial Paralysis of left leg, resulting from gun shot

wound, recieved at Battle of Corinth and there is partial loss of

motion, sensation impaired-------we would therefore, recommend a

detail in the Hospital Department.

M'u J. Armstrong; Asst.

Surgeons

Sam R. Oliphant; & Ex

Boosa'

'John W. Wilson served the rest of the war in the Hospital

Department, and carried the impairment of his left limb until his

death in 1920. Later, he told his children of being left for dead on

the battle field, among the dead. He remembered dragging himself over

bodies and finding grains of corn, shattered and left by horses, on

the field. It was life-giving nourishment, that could have made him

survive.

'After the Civil War, we find John W. Wilson and Sarah Ann George are

united in Holy Matrimony, Lamar County, Texas, April 3, 1866, 3 PM, by

Squire Buford, J.P. Sarah Ann George was the daughter of D. S. R.

George and Lucinda McGuire George. Lucinda McGuire George was the

daughter of Ann Lee McGuire, a cousin of General Robert E. Lee. She

was born in Virginia, July 17, 1790. She served in the mess of a ship

in the Chesapeake Bay during the War of 1812. Her 1' x 2' x48" cloth

chest has been passed down to her great-grand-daughter, Mrs. P. L.

Ayles, and is now one of her prized possessions.

'Twelve children blessed the union of John W. Wilson and Sarah Ann

George. When their first-born, Ida Bell was about three years old, an

ex-slave Negro woman, asked permission to take the little girl to the

pool with her to get a bucket of water. Later, the Negro woman came

back to the house alone; Sarah Ann Wilson asked where little Ida Bell

was. The Negro replied that she was in the pool. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson

rushed to the pool and retrieved the seemingly lifeless body. They

carried Ida Bell to the house and began to work with her to revive the

little girl. Prayers were said and earnest therapy was applied. The

little girl finally began to show signs of life. After the ordeal was

over, John W. Wilson and his wife, Sarah Ann gave thanks to the Lord

God and John W. Wilson, then and there, promised the Lord that he

would serve His cause, thereafter.

"John W. Wilson became the Reverend John W. Wilson of the Methodist

Protestant Church of Lamar County, Texas, which later became Delta

County, Texas. The Rev. John W. Wilson was a local and curcuit

preacher for the Methodist Protestant Church for the rest of his life.

In those days, the local ministers did not get paid for doing the

Lord's work, so the Rev. Wilson was still a farmer and landowner. He

built one of the first cotton gins in Delta County. It was powered by

oxen. This gin burned and he re-built a second gin. In about 1887 he

bought the Cyrus C. Taylor, two-story home, that had been built in

1859. This home was used as a social center and many dances were held

in the large east room of the second story, when the Taylors lived

there. Cyrus C. Taylor was the father of Benoni B. Taylor of James M.

Daniels' Lamar County Artillery Co. of C. S. A., known as Daniels'

Texas Battery.

'John W. Wilson was one of the most highly respected citizens of

Delta County. He was known for miles around as the most popular

'marrying parson'. People would come from adjoining counties to be

married by the Rev. John W. Wilson. A check of the Delta County

marriage license show that he married over three hundred couples.

Besides raising twelve children, John W. and Sarah Ann Wilson, also

took in their eldest daughter, Ida Bell after she was widowed, with

six small children, and all were the happy family of this beloved

couple.

'John W. Wilson died Sept. 8, 1920, at the age of almost seventy-nine

years. Even though he carried the Civil War paralysis in his left

limb, until his death, it is said that he was never heard to complain.

He never wanted to talk about the war, and always wanted to help

others with their misfortunes. He was even forgiving of the negro

woman that threw his little girl in the pool, by saying that she did

not know what sorrow it would mean. The Negro woman was judged

simple-minded and not capable of realizing her dreadful act.

'Robert William Wilson and Celina A. (Robinson), from North Carolina,

were the parents of Allen Green Wilson, who was born in Smith County,

Tennessee, in 1819. Presley Askins and Mary (Finch), also from North

Carolina, were the parents of of Elizabeth Askins, who married Allen

Green Wilson. Their son John William Wilson was born in Smith County,

Tennessee, on October 3, 1841. The records show the family living in

Missouri when John was eight years old.

'Ann (Lee) McGuire, a cousin of General Robert E. Lee, was born in

Virginia on July 17, 1790. She served in the mess of a ship in

Chesapeake Bay during the war of 1812. Her daughter, Lucinda McGuire,

married D.S.R. George. Their daughter, Sarah Ann George, was born in

1847; she married John William Wilson in Lamar County in Texas on

April 3, 1866.

'We do not have the complete story of how John William Wilson and

Sarah Ann George came to be in Texas. We do know John served in the

Civil War, was seriously wounded and suffered a disability in his left

leg all his life. He was left for dead on the battlefield after the

Battle of Corinth on October 3, 1862. The records show he had

volunteered for service in Missouri on January 19, 1862. He was

discharged in Mississippi.

'When the first of the twelve children of John and Sarah Wilson, Ida

Bell, was three, a simple minded servant threw the child into a pool,

where she came very near to drowning. The distraught parents were able

to save the child (miraculously). John William Wilson took an oath

that he would serve the Lord thereafter. He became a minister of the

Methodist Protestant Church of Lamar (later Delta) County. He

continued to farm; country preachers were not paid in those days. He

built one of the first gins in Delta County: it was powered by oxen:

it burned down and he built another. He was one of the most highly

respected citizens of the county.

'The two story house which is our story this week is two miles east

of Lake Creek on Farm Road 198. It was built in 1859. The Cyrus Taylor

family owned it: it was a social center; dances were held in the large

east room of the second story. The Wilsons bought the house from the

Taylors in 1887.

'The Reverend Wilson was a local and circuit preacher. He was known

for miles around as a popular 'marrying parson'. People came from

adjoining counties to be married by him. Delta County records show he

performed the marriage ceremony for more than three hundred couples.

'Besides raising their own twelve children, John and Sarah Wilson

took in their widowed daughter, Ida Bell Stegall, and her six

children. Mrs. Anna Barnett of Cooper was one of those children.

'John William Wilson died at the age of 79 in 1920; his wife, Sarah

Ann passed away in 1939. They are buried in the Lake Creek Cemetery.

The house was occupied by their daughter, Winnie (Wilson) Ayles, and

her husband until 1972.

'An historical marker honoring

-------------------------------------in front of the house in

ceremonies held October 5, 1969. At that time the descendants of the

Reverend Wilson numbered three hundred four: six great great grandsons

were ordained ministers. Six of his descendants took part in the

ceremonies: Randal Stegall, Mrs. Pat Ayles, Reverend Ronald Barnett,

Reverend Earl V. Robnett, Alton Jones and David Jones.

'To the unknowing, it may seem the only sounds there now are the

moaning and the whistling of the wind through the broken windows and

sagging timbers, but the old house is telling tales of a hundred

nineteen years of joy and sorrow, youth and age, birth and death,

failure and success, fear and courage, pain and pleasure, struggle and

triumph, and most of all, goodness and love.' "
