Part of a migrating clan called "The Travellers." Aunt Mattie Lewis may know more about their origins in South Carolina.

Mattie (Gibson) Lewis says that John Wesley was a hobo. She is also convinced that he was not originally from North Carolina, or at least his father wasn't.

Dorothy Gibson Crane says he got a sunstroke and never recovered.
