Re: Ancestors of Grace Wilkie of Gaffney, SC
Wow, I had forgotten how much time has passed since I posted this! I have a lot of the information you have listed here...but I see some places you are missing info. I can share what I have, if you like. We need to compare notes. How are you related to Dr. James Wilkie...by his first wife (Marinda Collins) or his second (Mary Selina Morrow)?
Have you spoken to our cousin Sandra Wilkie from Chesnee by any chance? She's got oodles of info & pictures (she gave me copies) of various Wilkies. Do you have a picture of Dr. James...I can give you that if you don't.
I am particularly interested in one thing you mentioned:
"Family lore says she was a Cherokee." My mama has sworn up and down that there was Cherokee blood on that line, but I have yet to locate it. Where did you get this information? Will you please email me at [email protected]? That way we can do some info exchanging.
Thanks for taking the time to send this info...you are a 'gen angel'! Hope to hear from you soon, Cousin.
