|Timeline for John C. Wilkerson
from his birth in 1819 in
Tennessee and extending through the deaths of most of his children. We
are fortunate he used his middle name on all records. His brother James
H. Wilkerson died August 1853 in Smith County, Texas. John C. is last
found in Fort Worth in 1880.
|Transcription of Warren County,
TN Deed Book K, pages 278-9, Wilkersons to Nunley, provides a 'marriage
by this date" for Editha Nunley and John C. Wilkerson, as well as proof
her father was Archelaus Nunley. It doesn't, however, state the
relationship between Editha and William Nunley.
of Warren County, TN Deed Book P, pages 522-3, James H. Wilkerson
and Sarah C. to Nunley proves Sarah C. is another daughter of Archelaus
Nunley. This deed and and the Smith Co., Texas probate for James H.
thus proves two Wilkerson brothers married Nunley sisters.
of Warren County, TN Deed Book R, pages 514-6 whereby William W.
Nunnely sold the five tracts that were originally owned by Archelaus
Nunley. This researcher has not found documentation proving William W.
as a son/brother in this family, butg everything points to that
of the remaining four grantor deeds for Wm. W. Nunnelly in Warren
County, TN. Deed Book P, pages 281-2. Trust Deed to Asa Faulkner; Deed
Book S pages 431-2 Trust Deed to Landy B.Waters; Deed Book S pages
435-6 W. W. Nunnely, Trustee of James Yeargain to Samuel L. Colville;
Book S pages 477-8 deed to Wm. Reeder.
