I have been researching Jacob Wilkes, born in Robeson Co., NC 11 Dec 1791, son of John A. Wilkes and Lucy Ann Strickland for some time and the last record I could find was Robeson Co. NC court records dated 1834. He wife, Mary Jane Hughes, moved to Montgomery Co., Ga. with his 5 children about 1837 and latter married Gadi Strickland in 1842. Recently I have discovered other Wilkes Family researchers list Jacob Wilkes death as 11 Feb. in Carlow Ireland and two of his brothers, Isaac Wilkes (13 Aug. 1790 - 30 Sept 1830)and Marcus Branch Wilkes (27 Jan 1815 - 31 May 1865) also died in Carlow Ireland according to them. Jacob, Isaac and Marcus were children of John A. Wilkes and Lucy Ann Strickland of Robeson Co., NC. I am interested in the Carlow Ireland connection if someone can tell me anything.
