Hello cousin Dale. I did not realise that "Wallace" was you! We are both on the Yahoo Pilkinton (Pilk) list. I really appreciate your posting of the photos of Jim And Alice on the Yahoo site. I hope it is o.k. to copy them? Now I am finally tying the line of Jim and Alice to my Giles County line. Since Jim and Alice moved to Giles County, I kept seeing them in the census when I was enumerating the descendants of Jesse in Giles county. I never could really firm up who they were and how they were related until now. Now I see how we are related! Do you all realize that John M. Pilkinton Sr. moved to Gallatin County, Illinois at the same time as his uncle Jesse and is enumerated in the 1850 near Jesse and son Robert?
