I know someone who is looking for Wilks/Wilkes relatives in the West Virginia area, specifically Cabell County. Albert Wilks/Wilkes, born in Camden NJ some time in late 1800s. We think he was a merchant marine or some other kind of seaman. We know he died in Huntington, W. Va., probably some time in the early 1970s. If you have any info, let me know. Thanks!

Sorry: I know there is a lot of Descendants of Francis Wilkes that I don't know. Francis was from Edgecombe Co (east cost side) of NC. I have nothing on Lyman. At least one Grandson John A. Wilkes lived and died in Robeson Co., NC. I don't have much on his line.

Deborah, What part of Al were your Wilkes family members from? I too am looking for Wilkes in Al and have been unable to find anything of substance. Names I am looking for are:1. John Henry Manuel Wilkes m. Emory Jane Perry in Polk county Ga. Married Sarah Frances Mayo in ?? at ??
I have been unable to find anything on this marriage but have been told Sarah was indian and came off the reservation so I assume she was either Creek or Cherokee. Nothing to verify this except word of mouth from her one grandaughter who is still living.
Children of JHM Wilkes and EJ Perry: 1 known
my grandfather Elijah(?) Elac Wilkes
Children of JHM and Sarah: William-Charlie-Elvira-Linnie and two or three others I believe.
After the death of JHM in (?) Sarah married Gaston Williams in Al I believe. Anyone with any info about this elusive family PLEASE share. Thanks MaryWilkes Davis.

My Wilkes line starts with Elizabeth Wilkes b. ABT 1790 in SC, m. John Calvin Cranford about 1810, d. 12 Mar 1868. They lived around Morgan or Cullman Counties.

Elizabeth's parents are Abner Wilkes and Martha Crider/Crowder. Abner's parents are Thomas Wilkes and Mary Conyers. Thomas' parents are Frances Wilkes and Grace (unknown). Frances' father was Charles Wilkes. They all appear to be from Virginia or North Carolina. I don't have info any any siblings for any of them, so I haven't found the names you seek. Good luck and let me know if you connect with any of my names. You can contact me:
