He was born ed July 18, 1838 at Waveland sometimes referred to as Cottage Home.
His Grandfather William and his Great Uncles belonged to Sumpter's Command in the Revolutionary War.
In 1904 as a Christmas present to his middle son, Owen, he wrote a book "Reminiscences of Thomas B. Wilson". The original hand written copy was donated to the University of North Carolina (Confederate Section)
In 1939 George H. Armistead, Jr. had 500 copies made in a soft bound cover.
In 1953, Uncle Owen gave Prince a copy which Uncle Owen inscribed.
The Kitty Justice is that we would have lost lots of the family history if Great Grandfather Capt Thomas B. had not written the book.
Ah, if only other families members had been more diligent.
