William WILKINSON was born 1818 in OH, and died 1894. He married
Elizabeth MCLINTIC. She was born 1826 in PA, and died 1893.
Notes for William WILKINSON: When William
Wilkinson would travel to Chicago, IL to buy shoemakers materials
he would purchase what he needed and often get drunk and squander
the rest of the family money (Antedote related by cousin, Diane
Aker Paradise, through family folklore). Not a pretty story,
but probably true.
1903 Plat maps of Koscuisko County, IN show
several Wilkinson and McLintic families still living in the area.

says that she and her brother Robert were not very close, although
after their dad (Fielding Boone Wilkinson) died, they did become
closer and that their family was not a very loving/touching family.
They're parents were always quarreling and she was afraid of
their dad. He lived most of the time in Chicago, IL while the
rest of the family lived in Elkhart. He worked on the railroad.
Their mother worked and Erma looked after Robert. Robert married
5 times. Erma says that some relative had told her that our Grandmother
Frances Anna Alice Drake was related to Sir Francis Drake....Isn't
