c. 1880 photograph of four-year-old Charles Wadleigh Wilson; taken by the Y. A. Kroneberger studio at 35 West Third Street, Chester, Pennsylvania.
From online research, hopefully correct: [if not, please let me know]
Charles Wadleigh Wilson was born 12 December 1876 at, I believe, Chester, Pennsylvania, the son of Joseph Osgood Wilson and wife Isabella (Cornog) Wilson.
His paternal grandparents were Joseph and Ann T. (Osgood) Wilson, born in Delaware and Pennsylvania respectively. His maternal grandparents were Robert Gamble Cornog and Eleanor Jane (Harp) Cornog, both born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Here's an interesting account of Charles' father, Joseph Osgood Wilson, and grandfather Joseph Wilson in the Biographical and Historical Encyclopedia of Delaware County, by Winfield Scott Garner and Samuel T. Wiley, 1894
If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information presented here, please leave a comment or contact me directly. I'd especially like to know of Charles' later life.
