Trying to find evidence that a branch of my Wilson family was Quaker. Family story is Levi Wilson was a frequent speaker at the Philadelpia Friends Meeting House. I do not know if it was the father Levi or the son Levi so time frame is 1860s - 1910s. Would like to glean as much about the entire family as possible from any records that might be available. What records are available? What is the best way to research this from Kansas City?
