My great grandfather James Wilson was born in County Donegal between Killy begs and Dunkineely. He was born July 20, 1858. He emigrated to the USA in 1884 (I think) with his younger sister. He settled in Crawford County, Ohio.  I am searching for information about his parents and the sister who traveled with him to the US.  Barbara Sherer

    I am descended from Wilson's from Bruckless which is between Killybegs & Dunkineely.   Many Wilson's from this area, St. John's Point, Ballyederlan townland too.   Related to many Lyons', Jervis' of Castlereagh, Buchanan's also from Bruckless area to name a few.   My Wilson's all went to Ontario, Canada from the 1830's thru 1870's.   I live in Minnesota.
