Regarding The Abstract Office. Dr. William S. Wilson arrived in Marianna during the 1840's and formed a partnership with Dr. William H. Whitehead in 1857. Although he participated in the fighting at the Battle of Marianna, he was able to elude capture and assisted tremendously in caring for the wounded afterward. Dr. Wilson was a member of Captain Jesse Norwood's Home Guards.
