He was listed on 4 December 1850 Collin Co., Tx census. He began his military service from 31 December 1861 to 28 February 1862 at Collin County, TX. (From History of Collin County TX - Courtesy of Harold Vance).

Muster Roll of Captain A.J. Hardin Company (A) of the 6th Regiment of TX Calvary. J.G. Vance listed as 2nd Lieutenant.

185 His second wife Mary Thomasima Montgomery Perrott was the daughter of Robert I. and Fanny Montgomery Perrott and sister to Isobel Cornish Montgomery Perrott, the wife of his brother the Reverend Roger Williamson Wilson.

As to the murder it appears that Fanny had cause to chastise the laundry maid one day, and that night the Japanese cook, who was having an affair with the said laundry maid, sneaked back and murdered her and shot through. Henry Charles then went out and brought him back, and handed him over to the Police, who in turn let him go.

Eight years later they picked him up and charged him with murdering a prostitute. That is why the family is not jumping to acknowledge these facts to this day.

Murder of Miss Duffy
Georgetown, November 2

"Georgetown was all excitement today when Fanny Wilson, Wife of Henry Charles Wilson, manager of Carpentaria Downs station, was charged at the Police Court with the murder of miss Nellie Duffy at the Carpentaria Downs station, on the morning of 20th September. She was defended by Mr Doubleday.

"Sub-inspector [sic] Rody Byrne gave evidence respecting his visit to the station after the tragedy had been committed. He made inquiries, and asked that all who had been in the house on the previous night should view the dead body of Miss Duffy in his presence. When accused come into the room she trembled considerably, and hid her face in a handkerchief. On 1st October, acting on instructions, he arrested Mrs Wilson on a charge of wilful murder.

"Willie Wilson", a blackboy [sic], who was interrogated respecting his knowledge of the truth, said that he had been working for Wilson for 15 years. He knew accused and miss Duffy. In the afternoon of the day before the murder, Mrs Wilson came to him in the butcher's shop and said "Come up in the morning, I want to kill Miss Duffy". on witness answering "All right", Mrs Wilson asked him to meet her at the washhouse. Whereas, at Mrs Wilson's request, that afternoon filled two tubs with water, and afterwards he was given about an inch of whisky in a bottle. Early on the following morning witness got up and went to the washhouse. Mrs Wilson was there. At her request he went up the stairs with her and along the balcony to Miss Duffy's room, Mrs Wilson had a pocket knife in her hand. Witness and accused went into Miss Duffy's room, where she was asleep. Witness, at the request of Mrs Wilson, held Miss Duffy's hands, and accused stuck the knife in Miss Duffy's neck. Miss Duffy struggled slightly and groaned When the knife was drawn out, the blood spurted from the wound. At the request of Mrs Wilson, witness washed Miss Duffy's hands, and afterwards he washed some white clothes which Mrs Wilson had been wearing. The water had blood in it after the clothes had been washed, so witness emptied it out and filled the tub again. Some time afterwards witness was told that Miss Duffy had been killed, and he was told to gallop to the Oaks to tell Mr Wilson. Witness did so, and came back with the police.
"No further evidence was taken at this stage, and accused was remanded for eight days.
