I absolutely love this photo. John Wilson owned the first Cadillac in Baldwin County, AL. It was a 1912 convertible touring car. John Travis Wilson (1866-1916) was born to Henry Wilson and Mary Ellen Vickery Wilson on Sept. 19, 1866 in Escambia County, Florida. John married Annie Missouri Flowers (1872-1957) on Dec. 7, 1887 in High Pine, Florida. They were the parents of 16 children.
