[AR] Safronia Boswell & Daniel T. Wilson - Arkansas Co.

I'm interested in any information concerning the life and descendants of Safronia Wilson of Arkansas County, Arkansas. Her maiden name was originally Safronia Boswell, the daughter of Isom and Amanda Boswell and she raised in Lake Village, Chicot County, Ark.

She married a Daniel T. Wilson, May 3, 1887 in Drew, Arkansas. Daniel T. Wilson was born 1854 in Virginia and it has been said that he was a minister, and Safronia (Boswell) was born 1868 in Alabama (though later census enumeration noted her birth state as being - Mississippi).

As of my knowledge they had all sons as listed below:

Bennie Wilson b. 1890
Daniel T Wilson Jr. b. 1895
Jesse Wilson b. 1897
Charley W. Wilson b. 1901
George Wilson b. 1903

Georgiann Boswell, my great-grandmother was Safronia Boswell Wilson younger sister, and my grandmother, Fannie Riley (maiden name) was obviously named after her aunt Safronia, who was also named "Fanny" in an 1870 Federal census.

My grandmother Fannie and one of Safronia's granddaughters, who we called, Cousin Wilma were very close, and though they knew they were cousins, my grandmother, even unto death, never actually knew how they were related.
