Laura,

Thank you for the info. The Ben Wilkes I am studying (b. 1801 Ohio, d. 1886 VA) was the grandson son of John Wilkes and Elizabeth Mead through their son, Francis. I have interest in finding other descendants of Ben. You have helped my research, however. Thanks again.

Knowing what state you were born would help. Also, did you have any brothers and sisters? Do you have their DOB, place of birth, DOD, place of death (if any dead). Do you have any names of your aunts, uncles, or grandparents and associated dates?

I am a direct descendant of Benjamin and Sarah (Osborn) Wilkes (I prefer the "es" ending). One of their sons, John (married to Lydia Strong) came to Texas. This John and Lydia are my GGG Grandparents.

I bet you have family in the Pittsburgh Texas area.

Of course, I have plenty of other information to share....

I, like Carleton Wilkes, am a descendent also. I have some more recent info on James Blackstone Wilkes and his 1st daughter Talulla Wilkes Freeman. (Talulla was my g-grandmother). I have heard of you online...would like to correspond...bsclay@oio.net.
