Wilkinson History

This is a history of just my line of the Wilkinson family.  For more complete info go the the Wilkinson Website.  According to my Grandmother, her family owned the Myrtle Grove Plantation and then lost it, but I can't find a record of it except one reference - during the huge St. Sophie flood of 1884 a TS Wilkinson was given supplies for Myrtle Grove.  According to Old Louisiana Plantation Homes & Family Trees (V2) the Wilkinsons owned the Live Oak Plantation .  (An interesting note - the Reaud's owned the plantation next to Live Oaks.)  RA (Robert Andrews) Wilkinson is listed as the overseer of the LaBlanche (LaBranche?) plantation on the coast 11 miles from the courthouse on the 1880 census.  Joseph Wilkinson was married to Elizabeth Skinner and immigrated from England in 1729 and was given a land grant in Calvert County, MD and owned a plantation on the south side of Hunters Creek called Stoakley according to the History of Calvert County p104.  General James Wilkinson founded Frankfurt, KY and owned Live Oak Plantation.  Joseph Jr. died when James was 7.

According to my Grandmother a little known fact of Wilkinson history is that General James Wilkinson was not only largely responsible for the Louisiana Purchase but that he secretly tried to sell it back for a profit.  Now I can find no record of that anywhere else but I thought it was quite interesting.

The source for the following material was an old Wilkinson Family History that my grandmother got from some cousins.  We can't seem to find a copy of it anywhere but this was taken off of a Family History I did while in school that was found in a box my mother kept of some of my baby and school stuff.  If anyone can find a copy of this history (or knows what I'm talking about) please e-mail me.  Thank you.

Joseph Wilkinson came to this country from England in 1729 and was give a land grant in Calvert County according to "Plantation Homes and Family Trees" and settled in Maryland. He married Miss Skinner and they had two children.  He was buried in St. Paul's churchyard (England?).

Joseph Wilkinson II married Miss Heigte and had two sons and a daughter - Joseph, James and Elizabeth.

James Wilkinson was born in 1757.  His father died when he was seven and his mother sent him to school in Baltimore.  He entered medical school while a little over seventeen years of age and graduated in medicine at the age of 19.  He enlisted in the military and fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill.  He married Ann Biddle of Philadelphia and had one daughter and three sons.  He entered the army in 1776 under Col. Thompson.  He was appointed Captain in March of 1776, Lt. Colonel in January by General Washington.  In November of 1777 he received the Brevet of Brigadier, General by General Washington.  James was the U.S. General who received the "Province of Louisiana" from France.  He established the Barracks at Bellefontaine near St. Louis.  When he retired he became a planter at his plantation - Live Oak, located 25 miles below New Orleans.  He died in 1825 and was buried in a Baptist cemetary in Mexico.

Joseph Biddle Wilkinson, the second born of James and Ann married Catherine Andrews of Scottish descendant.  They came to Louisiana in 1808 and had three sons and six daughters.  They owned a plantation in Plaquemines Parish named "Pointe Celeste".  He sold his plantation and moved to New Orleans where he died November 08, 1865 at the age of 80.  During the civil war he was put in prison on an alleged charge of burying fire-arms, but was liberated by General Weitzel, an old friend.

Robert Wilkinson was born at Bellefield Plantation in Mississippi.  He married Mrs. Mary Gildart (nee Stark) and they had nine children.  When the confederate war broke out, he joined the Army and went out as Captain of a company from the parish, serving under Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.  He was killed as a Lt. Colonel at the second battle of Manasses.  Mary, his wife, was put in prison in New Orleans for refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the United States.  She finally did so.  He was killed at the Battle of Manasses in 1862.

Robert Andrews Wilkinson married Lucy Ashby of Virginia and had five sons and six daughters.  Robert served with his father in the Army at age 16 in Virginia and then Louisiana.  He was wounded but not seriously.  He later died on February 14, 1897 and was buried at St. Peter's Plantation in the churchyard.  His wife Lucy died in Jennings, LA and was buried there (this the family did not realize - we are trying to locate her gravesite now).

Lucy Ashby Wilkinson, daughter of Robert and Lucy Ashby married Jules Reaud, Sr. at the Alliance Plantation.  They had three sons and one daughter.  She died in 1939 in Jennings.  Jules Reaud, Sr. died in 1936.
