red mail Edward Anderson Wilson
Looking for information on Edward Anderson WILSON, born about 1837-38, possibly in or near Manchester; died 1900 in Sydney, Australia. He was the son of James WILSON and Katherine ANDERSON. He migrated to Australia before 1874. He had a wife (and possibly some children) who remained in the UK; his wife may have died in the early-mid 1880s. It's possible his wife was looking for him and may have registered him as missing or estranged. In Australia he was employed as a journalist (sports and turf writer).
