@Follers, I am not trying to troll but I really think Thomas Wilson is 1/16th Ashkenazi Jewish or German. I believe Anna May (Kelly) Wilson along with Thomas Francis Wilson (born in Philadelphia) in the 1920’s was his parents. Anna May Kelly is the daughter of Anna May Carmany, the daughter of Caroline R. McCrork, the daughter of Annie B. Rosenberger. Annie B. Rosenberger was buried in Jerusalem Union Cemetery which I think is a Jewish Cemetery but if not she was most likely of Germany descent.

Jerusalem Union Cemetery in Almont appears to be Lutheran.

Yes, Annie B. Rosenberger was not Jewish, like most people with that surname.

And if you go further up the Rosenberger tree, they’re buried in Mennonite cemeteries.

Jerusalem Union would be an atypical name for a Jewish cemetery.

Yes, I was leaning towards him being German being that his ancestors were living in Pennsylvania that far back but I wasn’t familiar with that cemetery name.
