My grandfather David Wesley Hambrick who settled on Dry Creek near Princeton
had a brother, Joseph Hambrick, born ca 1821, probably Lincoln County, TN or
Madison County, AL, who married Bethena Wilson, born ca 1825 in TN. They
were married 22 Oct 1840 in Franklin County, TN. Bethena died Aug. 1850
near Princeton, Jackson County, AL Joseph is found on the 1850 Jackson
County, AL census with 2 daughters and 2 sons; Ruth 9, Bethena 1, Alfred 7,
and John 4. Living with them is ELIZABETH WILSON 55 TN, which is possibly
his mother-in-law. Has anyone seen these names during their research on the
WILSON family. Would appreciate any info.
