GEORGE WASHINGTON WILSON: 1829—1913; was raised on his father’s farm. he was the oldest child of Hamilton Wilson and Katherine Ketner Wilson. In his younger days he was referred to as Little Watt to distinguish him from his uncle John Washington Wilson, (Big Watt) at Yadkin College. After Grandpa Ketner died in 1842 his wife went to live with Hamilton Wilsons and a portion of the Ketner home place came in to possession of Watt and he moved the Ketner house five hundred yards north onto higher ground. The logs from the Ketner house became the front and rear logs of Watt’s house. He married Harriet Brendel from Davie County, who bore him three children. The girls died in infancy but the boy Joseph grew to maturity. Watt was mild mannered and the neighbors said he was extremely “hen—pecked”. Some of Joe’s cousins in after life would jokingly relate visits with Joe said that if there were a cracked plate or cup on the table would always switch it to Uncle Watt’s place saying “you take that, Watt”, or if chicken were served at the table the back became Uncle Watt’s portion.
