I am trying to find out some information on an ancestor of mine named Willis McWilkinson. The only lead is that he was granted 640 acres of land in the late 1830's as a soldier ( of the Republic of Texas?). On the 1850 Montgomery County Census there is listed a Willis M. Wilkinson. I feel that it is the same person, since some of the original acreage may have overlapped into Montgomery county. His descendants married into the family of Youngs and Huffmans that lived in that general area.
