I have some information, word of mouth.So, no proof.
My GF was Ben Pilkenton; his father was John A. Pilkenton; and his father was Henry B(?) Pilkington.My info has him born in Kentucky (1834?) and married in Kentucky to Ellen (around 1850? in Tenn.?).Henry died in Missouri (Lawrence County).So, it sounds like we're talking about the same person.
I'm at work now, but I'll dig out my files this evening and see if I have any firm dates.But, most of this information came from a family bible and from notes my sister took over 20 years ago.So, it's sketchy at best.
Do you have any earlier information? On Henry or Ellenor?Finding Henry and Ellen has been the end of the trail for me.
