8. Neal K. Wilkinson 12,13,14 was born on 20 May 1804 in Robeson County, North Carolina,12,14 died on 27 Feb 1865 in Troup County, Georgia at age 60, and was buried in Long Cane Cemetery, Troup County, Georgia.

General Notes: Neal K Wilkinson came to Georgia with his father, Archibald Wilkinson, in about 1826. One can only speculate about why the family left North Carolina, but the Georgia Land Lotteries may have been an incentive. Other Wilkinsons, namely a Duncan and an Allen, had already migrated to the area in the very early 1800s (1804 or so) at a time when the area was still owned by the Creek and it was necessary to obtain a passport to enter. Whether or not they were relatives is unknown, but the familiar Scottish names give pause. Also, the counties were they lived, Meriweather and Harris, were originally part of Troup County, created in about 1826 about the Creeks left for Alabama.

Neal was about 22 when they started the journey and 24 when his father died in late 1828 or early 1839 according to Troup County records. Archibald did not leave a will, and originally his effects were auctioned. However, returns for his estate to his heirs were distributed all the way until 1845.

Neal and Rebecca's first child was named John, but lived to only three years of age.

It is interesting to note that although no record of a John Wilkinson accompanying the family exists, his orphans are suddenly included in the returns of the estate toward the end, around 1844. No definitive answer about John's whereabouts has ever been established, nor the date of his death. However, a John Wilkinson is found marrying in Fayetteville, NC, the area where the family migrated from, in 1826. Perhaps this is John, and if so, he died in 1828 from being kicked in the head by a horse. He was visiting family in Chesterfield District SC, which borders eastern North Carolina. He and his wife, Ann McKenzie, had two small boys named John McKenzie and James Archibald, born in 1827 and 1828 respectively. One of the reasons I suspect this as being our missing John is because the orphan's guardian according to the returns of Archibald's estate was one John McKenzie, very likely father of Ann McKenzie.

In 1844, these two boys would have been seventeen and sixteen respectively and perhaps their grandfather was finally able to locate the family that had left so many years before.

Sadly, both these young men died at a very early age, John of illness at his mother's home in 1852 and James, a riverboat captain and newly wed, who drowned the following year.

10. Margaret Wilkinson 17,18 was born in 1810 in North Carolina17,18 and died after 1888 in Anderson County, Texas. The cause of her death was old age.

General Notes: She states on census she was born in NC and her youngest sister Mary Ann was born in NC in 1824.
Living with son and his daughter, Maggie Bell. His wife seems to have died.
Sale of 95.60 acres
Margaret was born in North Carolina. Location is not certain, but might be same as Neal K, Cumberland County. The family did not leave North Carolina until after 1824, so she was a young girl when they made the pilgrimage south.
Margaret's husband, Phidelis Orion Lumpkin, was the son of one of Georgia 's early governors. He was born in Morgan County, Georgia. By 1827, Margaret's father was in Monroe County, Georgia so if the family stopped in Greene County it wasn't for long. The family friendships and intermarriage with various families living in Greene County indicate that they may have spent as much as a year there. Or, possibly these families knew each other from North Carolina.
Margaret's first son was born in Georgia and the remaining four were born in Texas.
