1. Wilkinson is my great grandfather
I was reading all the information on General James Wilkinson, he is my mother's grandfather, my great grandfather. My mother's family was from Louisana, where Wilkinson was governor at one time. I would like to contact any of his family.

2. I too am related to Wilkinson.
My mother's father is from Louisiana, the Lake Charles region, and is related directly to James Wilkinson (although I'm not exactly sure what generation he is to me..or what generation he is to my grandfather). It's amazing to be able to track your roots back to the American Revolution! I've been trying to fill in all the gaps in family history between them all.
