The REV. WILLIAM WILSON had two sons, Dr. James Wilson and Thomas P. Wilson. His brother, Thomas Wilson, married a Miss Poage, of Augusta, and settled in Morgantown, Monongalia county. (Note: Rev. William Wilson was this Thomas Wilson's brother).

The sons of Thomas Wilson were: 1. Edward C. (s/b Edgar) Wilson, a lawyer and member of Congress; 2. Rev. Norval Wilson, of the Methodist Episcopal church, father of Bishop Alpheus Wilson; 3. Alpheus P. Wilson, a prominent lawyer and member of the State Senate, from a district embracing all northwest Virginia from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. He removed to New Orleans, and in 1830 fell from a steamboat and drowned.
