Wilson (Nelson) Teague

A side story for the difference in his name. 

His given name at birth was Nelson Henry Teague.  He joined the Navy at 17.  He did not have a birth certificate so his mother had to sign an affidavit as to his name & birth date.  Her Nelson was interpreted As Wilson.  He didn't discover the error right away.  When he took it to authorities, they pretty much told him that is your name & wouldn't make the change.  The Navy had a birth certificate made & all his records now have Wilson.  So he is now Wilson (Nelson) Henry Teague.  All his close friends would have known him as Nelson or Teague.
