Looking for information on Ann "Anny" McInnis/McKinnis and her McInnis family in Robeson County, NC. Ann was the first wife of Mark Branch Wilkes and the mother of six children.Mark B. and Ann Wilkes lived in the upper division of Robeson County, NC at the time of the 1850 Federal Census.Ann's age is listed as 25 and she apparently died after 10 March 1850 and prior to 2 July 1860. Family history states that she may be buried at Galatia Church but I have been unable to locate her gravestone.Mark B. Wilkes' second wife, Flora McDougald (daughter of Alan McDougald), is listed in household in the 1860 Federal Census. Ann McInnis and Mark Branch Wilkes' children were:
Angus John Wilkesb. 1837 John A. Wilkesb. 1840 Neill Archie Wilkesb. abt. 1842 Mary Ann Wilkesb.abt. 1844 Sarah Wilkesb. 1846 William Christopher Wilkesb. 1850
Ann McInnis Wilkes may be related to a Mary Jane McInnis/McKinnis (1818 - 1895), who married George Wilkes (b. abt. 1812 - 1900).Both George and Mark Branch Wilkes were sons of John Wilkes and Lucy Strickland.
Any information on Ann McInnis and her parents would be greatly appreciated!
