What’s in a Name?

Julia Ann was my first cousin three times removed. She was born in 1848 and was the only daughter of Archibald Alonzo Wilkinson and his wife, Bethany Ward.

Her full name was Julia Ann Virginia Texas Wilkinson.  No one knows why the four names! Could it have been a whim of her father to name her for the locations of other family members?  His two sisters were living in Texas and there are Wilkinsons who came from Virginia.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
