| A portion
of this lineage comes from the book, "Wilkes
Family History and Genealogy", by Ivan Ernest Bass, 1965,
whom I have been told is very well researched and very reliable, having been used by many family members as a key
source for entry into the DAR. The book has many more interesting facts, such as their education, occupations and
places of residence, but because of copyright, I will not publish them here. I highly recommend it for those research-
ing these lineages.
