  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Israel Wilkinson, _Memoirs of the Wilkinson Family in America_ (Jacksonville, Ill.: Davis & Penniman, 1869), p. 170.

      !SOURCE: James N. Arnold, Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850, vol. 3, Cumberland, pt. 5 (Providence, R.I.: Narragansett Historical Pub. Co., 1892), p. 70.

      !RESIDENCES: Several years in Cumberland, R.I., "and was frequently employed in Providence, Newport, Warren, Boston and other places" as a ship carpenter. (Was engaged on "Old Iron Sides" in Boston for nearly a year.) Moved to Ira, Vermont, in 1808, then returned to Rhode Island, and finally returned to Vermont, where he died at 90 years of age. --I. Wilkinson, p. 170

      !CHILDREN: 4 children. --I. Wilkinson

      !SOURCE: Email from Rebecca Ott (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 3 Apr 2008. Cites cemetery inscriptions in the Ira, Vermont cemetery from town clerk, read 1919-1920:
      • George Wilkinson / Born in Rhode Island / June 16, 1765 / died Jan. 4, 1855
      • Lydia Wilkinson / Born in Rhode Island / May 19, 1771 [agrees with Arnold for Lydia, daughter of Christopher & Sarah Whipple] / died Sept 8, 1857 [Margaret R. Jenks says 1867, but there is no Lydia Wilkinson in Ira in the 1860 census]
        The above stones are next to one another
      • Nancy [must be Nancy Whipple, daughter of Christopher and Sarah Whipple] / wife of Elias Bates / died Nov 20, 1850, aged 68 years [therefore born about 1782 which fits perfectly with the Christopher Whipple family]
      • Elias Bates / died Nov 30, 1857, aged 79 years. A check of the 1850 census showed that they were both in Ira and both born in Rhode Island! [the town clerk had the dates as 1830 and 1837, but Jenks had 1850 and 1857 which is more believable based on the 1850 census]
