I have written here before but I have a bit more info. My Great Great Grandparents wiere Thomas Wilson B abt 1818 D Feb 11 1904 he was from Gortmesson and his father's name was also Thomas. His first wife was Mary Anne Breen she was born abt 1820 and died in 1871 her father was Robert and they were (according to the marriage cert) from Relagh. They were married at Magheracross in Ballinamallard. 

I have DNA 'Wilson' matches to people whose last name is Howe and they said they had Wilson cousins who worked at the Post Office in Enniskillen (this would be around WW1). 

I also seem to have DNA matches whose trees go back to Margaret Wilson b 17 Apr 1844•Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland who married John Irvine Burgess born 24 Jun 1847•Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.

I also have DNA mates that are descendants from Rebecca Wilson b 1821 Fermanagh County, Northern Ireland who married William Burgess born December 25, 1811 Fermanagh County, Northern Ireland. Rebecca's father is reported to be Alexander Wilson and her mother Margaret Macklen but there is no documentation for this in my matches tree.

I am wondering if anyone has any info on how the Wilson/Burgess might connect to my Wilson/Breen family?
