I am looking for any information I can find on Preston Wilder. He was born in Jan. 1886 in Kentucky, but is in the 1900 US Federal Census as a resident of Scott County, TN. His father's name was Lee and his mother's name was Mary. He had two sisters: Bettie and Lulah - and a brother named Marshall at that time. They also had a relative (most likely his uncle) named Creed living in the home.
Preston Wilder was convicted of murder and sent to prison when he was in his late teens or early 20s. He died soon afterwards. I am trying to gather details of what happened in his life and what led to his untimely death.
If anyone can help me, I wouls appreciate it emmensley.
