Notes for Ernest Garner Wilkinson:
In researching the Wilkinson Family I came across a letter Betty Wilkinson(Everhardt) had received from a Marvin. He states his Grandparents were Marilla and Harry Wilkinson. Following is what he remembers about Ernest Wilkinson and Hazel Sopher marriage day:
As I remember your Mother and Dad were married in New Castle. I was probadly 10 or 12 years old so that would make it about 1922 or about that time. I remember they left Grandma's house on the brown road on Uncle's Ernest's motorcycle and somewhere west of New Castle they hit fresh gravel on the road and the next thing I knew they were back in Grandma's living room. Your Dad was on Grandpa's leather couch with a broken leg and I think your Mother was in the big leather chair with a broken arm. The breaks may have been the reverse but both had one and were in the living room.
He goes on to state that, your Dad worked at the Jesse French Piano Company and mine worked at the Hoasier Kitchen Cabinet Company. At sometime they both worked at Hernly's Saloon and Pool Hall. They both belonged to the Red Man's Lodge, but I do not have any dates.
