The WILKERSONs I spoke of from Amarillo/Canyon area descend from Robert Thomas WILKERSON b abt 1832 Jefferson Co., Tenn, d in Floyd Co., Ga., Rome, m Knox Co., Tenn., Margaret Derieux. Robert Thomas W. was brother to my g-grandfather, Wm. Justice WILKERSON. The Amarillo/Canyon, Tx. WILKERSONs descend from Robert's son, John Gordon WILKERSON. Somewhere among all my "stuff" I have an obit I found online for one of them.
At the risk of repeating myself, I'm hoping someone will recognize some of these names. My ggg=grandfather, Robt. W. WILKERSON m (1) Elizabeth UNKNOWN in NC and had:
1. Mary Eliz. WILKERSON - Mrs. Wm. Snipes JUSTICE
2. John Burel W. - my gg-grnfthr.
3. Peter W.
He married (2) Unknown Unknown & moved to Tenn., poss. Cannon Co. & had:
1. Newton W.
2. Asbury W.
3. Wesley W.
