Appomattox Pastor Formed Unlikely Friendship With Oswald's Mother
Appomattox, VA - While the focus right now is rightfully on President Kennedy's life and legacy, one local man wants to make people aware of another family he says suffered a tremendous loss in November 1963.
Appomattox pastor Robert Wilson grew up in Texas, not far from the home of Lee Harvey Oswald's mother.
Wilson and his mother would visit Marguerite Oswald, who he says was isolated after her son was accused of killing the president.
In college, Wilson interviewed Mrs. Oswald for a newspaper story and recently wrote a novel about their conversations.
"Mrs. Oswald wanted people to know what she had experienced and like the Kennedy family, she had also suffered a great loss," said Wilson.
Wilson calls his book "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" a work of historical fiction. It's available through Amazon.
Wilson says Mrs. Oswald did not believe her son killed the president. Wilson believes Oswald was framed to take the fall for the president's murder.
