The name blocked out is my late husband Maurice Wilson, which I don't mind being shown. The gravestone is going to be restored soon. I live on Skye with his two children Sean Maurice and Kathleen Rhona. I am writing a book about the family, especially about Thomas as he was a hero forgotten over time. If anyone sees this page and has any information about the family, please get in touch.

Hello Rhona, I have a bit of information about Thomas Wilson's wife (Christina's) family as my great grandmother was her older sister. I assume Christina was the mother of Harris.
I live in Skye so would be happy to meet you in Portree and show you the information I have.
