As most of you know John Rosamond was our earliest ancestor in this country. His wife was Sarah Wilson who immigrated with her mother, siblings and cousins from County Antrim, Ireland to Philadelphia in 1740, and then went on to live with her father Thomas Wilson in Augusta County, VA. I have been in touch with Paul Phelps, a Wilson descendant, who provided the following information on our Wilson line. This was developed from the sources listed at the bottom. .
