85. My Wilson Family Book Comes Out In December

There's one thing to be said for a lengthy recuperation period: You have time for lots of keyboard and sorting tasks. My book on the Wilson family has been in process for way too long, as I was busy on other jobs. It will be coming out this month, after a couple of small additions and some editing. How is this connected to the O'Neill family? Well, Mary Catherine Wilson married Thomas O'Neill in Summerfield, Ohio, in 1874, and my grandmother Lena O'Neill was born five years later. Oh, yes, William Wilson was one of my Patriot ancestors (the others were John Long and Henry Darrah).
