The family was residing at Knoxville, Texas when Margaret Jane died. William H. Willson taught school there. 1860 Census of Cherokee County shows William H. Willson was born in Pennsylvania. 

J. M. Willson is found in 1880 Census Rusk County, Texas.  He appears to be living in the household of his brother-in-law William Hill. 

The two pictures below came from the trunk of Sarah Bailey Priest David.

Marriage Records Rusk County, Texas 1824-1890











As much as I would like to claim the Wm. H. Willson found in 1880 Census Rusk County, Texas it appears he is not ours. I believe our William H. Willson to be the one found in  Johnson County, Texas.  However he appears to be the one in marriage record above.
Would love to contact anyone with information about this family.
