I have enjoyed reading excerpts from your blogs regarding the Wilson family. I have been researching the family of John Davis of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia and have received conflicting information regarding Nicholas Bourdon of Isle of Wight and his wife Prudence Davis. In John Frederick Dorman's "Adventures of Purse and Persons", it is noted that my Nicholas was the father of Dr. Nicholas Joseph Bourdon. However, while the dates add up, your Nicholas was born in France, not Isle of Wight. Any ideas on this?
