DANIEL B. WILSON, farmer, was born in Graves County, Ky., February 26,
1859, and is the sixth in a family of eight children - four boys and
four girls - all living - born to Daniel and Caroline (Richardson)
Wilson, natives of Virginia. (Fuller genealogical details are given
in the sketch of Daniel Wilson above.) Our subject was fairly
educated at the district schools, and at Mayfield, but was chiefly
engaged on the home farm, until his marriage, December 6, 1883, to
Miss Rena Leech, daughter of William and Nancy (Hughes) Leech, natives
of Tennessee and Kentucky respectively, and of English extraction. Mrs.
Rena Wilson for three years attended school at McKenzie, Tennessee, and
is now a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Wilson is a
member of the Baptist Church. He is the owner of 225 acres of good
land, of which 150 acres are under cultivation and furnished with good
buildings. He makes a specialty of breeding short-horn cattle and
Berkshire hogs and is one of the most progressive young men of his
district.
