* Several trees say that Mitchell Wilson's wife was the daughter of Jacob Metcalf and Elizabeth
Buckner, but in 1850 when the census was recorded, their Lucinda was age 16, single, and still at
home while Mitchell and Lucinda were already married with two small children. (There were two
Lucinda Metcalfs.) If anyone has evidence of the Metcalf parentage of this Lucinda, please send
email (find the address on the Front page).
