Oct 2009 - Newly discovered family recordings & a bible record prove that Jonathan Pinkney Wilkinson  was  NOT the son of James & Mary Ann Purvis Wilkinson. Please continue to documents beneath the first lineage set below. It is plausible Jonathan was their nephew or some other connection but not a son.

"I want to comment about the Turners.  There are three long time Turner families in the area.  The Tom Turner that married Ella Lowe came to Polk County with his brother and his aunt from Louisiana and the brother and aunt lived with and worked for Willy Peebles.  I have contact with the brother's granddaughter.  Simeon Turner came here in the 1850s and his first wife is the first marked grave in Peebles Cemetery.  That was 1861 and the second wife was buried there in 1867.  He then married Mary Ann Brock.  There is a published book on his Turner family that I have seen and he was not from Alabama.  I copied the part about him and his descendents.  The third Turner family lived in the Soda Community and  three daughters married Wilkinson brothers.  Their father was John T. Turner.  I am sure that the first two families were not related, but Simeon and John may have a connection as both were in Mississippi at some time.  There are quite a few Turners on the 1860 and 1870 census in Polk County, but not any of them say they or any of their children were born in Alabama.  I do not believe that Turners came to Texas with the Peebles, Brock, Purvis, and Wilkinson families.  There are two other families that did - Oates and Williams.  I have a lot of information on the Williams family. " -- Annette Lowe
 
In researching on Ancestry.com,  I came across the family of John T. Turner and Eliza Jane Rhoden. Three of their daughters married three sons in the Jonathan Pinkney line. I have marked these with an  "&". The interesting thing is my grandmother told me about 3 Turner girls marrying 3 Wilkinson boys but I could never make the connection.

Surnames associated with this family: BROCK, PEEBLES, PURVIS, TURNER, WILKINSON


What I know about the Wilkinsons
(Records, such as some court documents and Permelia Peebles & Mary Peebles Pension Applications for their husbands, David M. & Jesse M., are shown as 'Wilkerson', however their headstones show Wilkinson.)

(CSA Pension Applications from Hardin County website have the correct spelling of 'Wilkinson'  and  "were abstracted from "Index To Applications For Texas Confederate Pensions" compiled by John M. Kinney, revised by Peggy Oakley, printed 1977 by the Archives Division, Texas State Library, Austin, Tx.")

NOTICE: Please view the Documents page for copies of Marriage Records, Divorce Records and CSA Pay Records for the Wilkinsons and associated families.  Records not listed elsewhere  will be added to this page, listed by surnames.

In 1860, there was an area close to Livingston, which is the county seat (Polk Co., Tx) known as "the Henry Co., Ala Settlement".  I believe it was also called "Providence Hill" and this is where the Peebles Family Cemetery is located.

There was another Wilkinson family in the Polk Co. area but they were from Mississippi. If you look at the 1860  Census for Precinct #4, you will be very confused.

It is believed that the father of James Wilkinson, Sr. was Hugh M. Wilkinson from Jefferson Co., GA but there hasn't been any documentation to prove or disprove this. If anyone has any information, I would like to post it here with the appropriate credit to you.

The sons of James & Mary Ann (Purvis) Wilkinson served in the CSA. To look up their names click here: Index to Texas Civil War Soldiers

 WILKINSON
Jess Wilkinson 
My cousin Jack Langston, sent this photo, designated as "Jess Wilkinson". Without the a date, we belive this is Jesse James Wilkinson (1891-1968), s/o David James Wilkinson & Mary Ellen Rogers. David was the s/o Jesse Mercer Wilkinson and Mary Ann Peebles.  He looks to be about 20 or so.  The orig photo has the writing out to the right hand side. I moved the writing to below the photo.
There is a letter to Jesse on the Milvid page, written by someone named Grover.

Permelia Ann Peebles 
Permelia Peebles Wilkinson
Permelia Ann Peebles was the d/o Wiley Peebles and Eliza Ward. Much has already been researched and written about this line of the Peebles, which descend from Capt. David Peebles, born abt 1610 in Fife Scotland and his wife Elspet Mackie, who probably died in Scotland as there is no mention of her in American records.  He was condemed to the headman's block by Cromwell for his support of King Charles 1 and in 1649, Capt. Peebles received a grant for 833 acres in Charles City (now Prince George County) Virginia. This provided his escape to the colonies. There, he built his plantation, "Bon Accord". "He was a justice of the county court and a vestryman of Westover Parish. He was elected a captain of the militia, the area of his charge lying on the south side of the James River, between Powell’s and Ward’s creeks." - The Peebles Line   In Virginia he married Elizabeth Bishop. Capt. David Peebles died in VA sometime prior to Sept 1659.

1942 Death Cert of Jefferson D Wilkinson
Death Cert for Jefferson D Wilkinson

When surnames can be spelled several different ways, it is hard for people to know which is correct, even when it is within one generation. This is especially true with Wilkinson vs Wilkerson.  Above is my great-grandfather's Death Certificate. It is  a copy of the original, the informant was Oscar, the oldest boy. You would think the information on a Death Cert would be good but it is only as accurate as the information supplied.

There are several mistakes on the certificate: The surname is Wilkinson not Wilkerson.  Uncle Oscar, bless his heart, did not even know the name of his grandfather (David M.) as he mistakenly gave his father's uncle Jess instead. I am sure, the time was hard for the family and no one bothered to review the information, but this is a good example of why you can't always go with just one "official" document.

Listed as "Wilkerson" in 1920

By 1920, Nancy Jane Cross Wilkinson had passed away. The two youngest boys were living with their father, Jefferson Davis Wilkinson. They were working at the saw mill just up the road. My grandfather, Wilburn Joseph Wilkinson said Uncle Jep's name was "Jefferson Franklin" but people called him "Jeff Frank" or "Jep". (I grew up calling him Uncle Jep.). In this 1920 census, you can see Uncle Jep is listed as Jefferson and the surname has been listed as "Wilkerson".

^ Jack W Wilkerson vs The State of Texas, No. 3271, Decided Dec. 20, 1905

webassets/img0.gif

Joel Wilkinson, researcher, now deceased, felt sure that Jonathan P. was a son of James & Mary Purvis Wilkinson. I was not sure but included this info out of respect for Joel. Based on the following census record, I am even less sure that Jonathan belonged to this James Wilkinson Family. If Jonathan was a member of this family, he should have been a part of this census as the family was in Texas just 4-5 years later.

OCT 2009 Update:
Based on the family records submitted by Jack Langston of Village Mills, I will now state that Jonathan is NOT a son of James O. Wilkinson and Mary Ann Purvis.

My grandfather, Bill Wilkinson (Wilburn Joseph) in 1912. He had injured his leg while working in the sawmill near Village Mills. They didn't know if he'd walk on that leg again but he did. Oscar & Dave were both working at the Kirby Lumber Mill in Hardin Co, so that may have been the same mill where he injured his leg.

This photo was taken in the summer of 1955 in the drive-way of grandpa's house located at 1409 Gilbert St., Beaumont, Jefferson Co. TX, which my grandparents bought in 1932.

Jefferson David Wilkinson celebrated his 75th birthday on November 10, 1936. All his children gathered at his home in Village Mills, Hardin Co., TX to celebrate with him. The house is gone now but was at the end of a dirt road, which today is called Langston Rd. and is going towards what is now "Wildwood Resort Community".

Wilkinson Genealogy

In my research, I have found 2 David Wilkinsons...one from GA and one from MS, or some how there is a perpetuating mistake, which needs to be cleared up.

Source:

The early Wilkinson information concerning the wagon train, etc was given to me by Joel Wilkinson. He received some of this information from Thurman E. Wilkinson, Sr. who was still living in Polk Co., TX.
Joel passed away before he could complete his book on the Wilkinson family. I have no idea what became of all his research.
