My name is David Wilson, I am the (3x) great grandson of Samuel and Deborah Wilson. I descend through their son Vincent Wilson. Vincent Wilson's oldest son, Herbert S. Wilson is my great grandfather. It is true that some of the Wilson's were shipbuilders. Some were also carpenters. My father has some of the shipbuilding tools that belonged to the family, he said they're from the early 19th Century. Herbert Wilson came to Manchester, NH with two of his brothers: Jacob and Amasa Wilson. Jacob left Manchester before 1910 for California. Herbert and Amasa operated Wilson Brothers Carpentry until their deaths in the 1930's.
