Seeking information, burial location, obits, descendants, photos, etc. for Henry & Jane (Neely) Wilson. They are listed in the 1880 Fed. Census as living in Reeder Twp., Anderson County, Kansas. Believed to have moved there sometime in the 1870's from Tecumseh, Lenawee County, Michigan where both of their families settled after coming to U.S. from Ireland in late 1840's, early 1850. Henry's parents were John and Sarah (Elliott)Wilson. Jane's parents were James and Mary Agnes (Baird) Neely (Neilly - Irish spelling). Both Henry and Jane were born at Spring Mount, Antrim County, Ireland. Their known children were Alice, Homer (census has it as "Omar"), Lizzie, Florine, & Edith. Another son, Frankie, died in childhood. Jane (Neely) Wilson was the sister of my g-grandfather, David Neely. Henry Wilson was the brother of my g-grandmother Matilda (Wilson) Neely, wife of David Neely. Have information on siblings, etc. I can share as well as photos, etc. Any information greatly appreciated!! Thanks! Sincerely, Jim Neely
