I studied your database and thought that William BIGELOW, son of John, (John , Samuel, John) BIGELOW might be the parents of Hiram Wilson for these reasons......
birth in North Carolina, name of Wilson, birth date of 1831, the comment that there were said to be six children, William had received script warrant (War of 1812) in Arkansas (Bureau of Land Management records (issue date November 27, 1820), sons of William appear to have been in TN, then on to AR, oral information that Hiram Wilson had a brother (perhaps William Henry BIGELOW) that left and was never heard from again (my father thought to fight in Civil War).
I realize that I need the 1840 North Carolina Census but our local library's microfilm is not readable.
Thanks so much for letting me send the information I have and for any help you may be able to give me. I will start with the things I have documented....
