At that time John Benjamin Wilson owned a parcel of land in the township. John B. Wilson (1832-1903) is the great grandfather of Miriam E. Grasz Field to whom these web pages are dedicated. He was first married to Mary E. Crockett and they were married in Ohio. They then moved to Indiana. Mary died in 1869 and John married Susannah Barbara Adams. John had nine children with Mary and four with Susannah. These children and grandchildren married into families around Kosciusko County. It is interesting to look at plat maps and see where these various people lived. Long distance travel was not common in the 1880's and people tended to marty close neighbors. They often went to churches together and they would marry other churches members.</p> <p align="justify"><font face="verdana" size="3" FONT COLOR="grey">Another name that interests us in the south east corner of section 14 is N.
