My grandfather, George Maley Wilkinson, is their only surviving son.
My Ggrandfather, Archibald Daniel Wilkinson, is the son of Neal K. Wilkinson, who wond land in the 1827 Cherokee Land Lottery in the Long Cane area, which is now under the lake. They are all buried at Long Cane Cemetery, Hwy 29, West Point.
