Thank you. Unfortunately this is another 'members only' site - not an open forum such as this GenForum. I could not find an archives to the site so cannot search to see if anything at all has been added about Thomas Pilkington b. ca 1815 in England and his wife, Caroline M. [unknown maiden name] b. ca 1825 in Pennsylvania.
The birth years of their children would indicate that they had been in California since at least 1857.
I would really like to know Caroline's maiden name as well as where and when she married Thomas. Otherwise, I am not particularly interested in the surname Pilkington, per se. Caroline could have been the widowed daughter-in-law of my gg-grandmother. Without knowing her name before her marriage to Thomas Pilkington, I have no way of knowing that.
