Nellie A. Wilkes 1873 & Family from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I am looking for information on the family of Nellie A. Wilkes b. Nov 1873 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She married Thomas Butler Sault from England in 1892 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nellie's parents' names are John Wilkes and Catherine Smith. Apparently, there is a famous couple with these same names from the 1700s. This IS NOT the same couple as my great-great-great grandparents. Nellie's siblings that I know of are Henry Wilkes (who married Mary Pederson from Denmark in Milwaukee in 1888), Jennie Wilkes (who married John Henenekens from Milwaukee in Milwaukee in 1885), and John Wilkes (1863-1889). All of Nellie's siblings were born in Milwaukee.
The only idea I have of where John Wilkes and Catherine Smith are from is from what my mom told me. She talked to a Sault relative that said Nellie was Scotch, Irish, and English, but her parents could be from anywhere.
I have been trying to look for this information for years. If anyone has any information on the Wilkes that may connect with the Milwaukee Wilkes, I would LOVE to hear from you!
