Yes! Wilson South is the son of Dr William South who was born in Washington Co Kentucky and was the first son of Dr John South married to Jane Mason in Washinton Co Kentucky In 1798 and then they moved to Wayne Co Kentucky for 10 years and then moved to Sullivan Co Indiana while young Dr William South took his medical training in Hardin Co Kentucky and probably stayed with his uncle William South while there. Married the Sawyer girl and they joined his younger brothers, sisters and father Dr John South in Shelby Co Ill.before 1830, until about 1840 and then Dr John South moved to Hopkins Co Texas and Dr William South moved to Osage Co Missouri, where his son James South stayed and raised his family.I go back to this James South. Dr William South and some of his family moved on to Hopkins Co Tex before 1850.I do know some more. Some of Dr John South's son moved to Andrson Co Kansas. Dr John Souths father was John South the younger, killed in the Indian battle of Estills Defeat 1782. He is listed in the Boonesbough militia records and his father was Thomas South also listed in the Boonesbough militia records as Thomas South. Thomas South was killed in the Indian battle of Bowmans defeat in 1777. They came from Maryland and Thomas South came with his Brother John South called Senior whos son came also in the Militia. His name was called John South Jr.
Their names are on the monument at the Boonesbough Park. I have a photo of the names.I have more but enjoy this for now
