Subject: [BUCHANAN-L] Do you know? Is it Mahala(h) Buchanan or Mahala(h) Wilson

I have a Mahalah Buchanan who married a James Wilburn Wilson. There is some
question as to Mahala or Mahalah's surname. It could be Buchanan or Wilson.

Quoted from the "History of the Toe River Valley Vol. 1 and 2, page 452,
Bio/Story 699.

James Wilburn Wilson was the son of William Wilson. James married
Mahala, either a Buchanan or Wilson. If she was Mahala Wilson, she would
have been the daughter of William Wilson and Creany Thomas. James did name
a child Creany, so this theory makes sense. However, his son James T.
Wilson death certificate listed his mother as a Buchanan. Several of the
other children listed their mother as Mahala Wilson. All of the older sons
that were born before James T. Wilson served in the Civil war, but I'm not
sure on which side. James and Mahala Wilson are buried in the Wilson
Cemetery on White Oak near Bakersville (Mitchell County).
