Disregard my previous message. After reading all your posts in detail I see that you must be refering to the John M. Pilkinton who is son of John M.(born 30 Jan 1811)and the grandson of Larkin Pilkinton (born 1 Mar 1781). Which of course would mean that Jim is the great-grandson of Larkin. Minus C. had a son named John, but he was born about 1849. My gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather Jesse Pilkinton was the brother of Larkin. There is a John Pilkinton serving in the 48th Tennessee (Nixon's)infantry C.S.A. with my gr-great grandfather Jefferson Pilkinton. I am fairly certain that it is John M. Pilkinton Jr. I will go to my local library in the next few days and see what I can find on John and his wife. They have a section on Maury County and one on Giles County. I do not know the burial location of John Jr. or his wife but you may be interested in this: According to my copy of "Cemetery Records of Giles County Tennessee", 1998 by Giles County Historical Soc. p. 211 : Lynnwood Cemetery - James W. Pinkinton (this book has several errors so you will have to double check markers) 2 June 1871 to 28 September 1940, Alice Pinkington (sic) 1871 - 1959. I will attempt to locate a marriage record for them. I do know that Larkin and his wife are buried at Campground (Wilkes)Cemetery in Culleoka (Maury County) and one of Larkin's sons is buried next to him but the stone is completely eroded to tiny bits (but when last transcribed in the 60's it still had part of an 1817 birth year on it-so probably M.C.). All three are shaped the same and next to one another. Those are the only three Pilkinton's that I can find in Maury County cemeteries but I would have to believe that John Jr. is buried in Maury County, so I will double check.
