Wilkinson and Richardson Family Records

Transcript of handwritten loose pages in the possession of Maude (Wilkinson) Perry prior to her death in 1961. Source is unknown or even if the information is all from the same original source. I transcribed the copy I worked from to make this source in the mid-1970's when I first began exploring family history. Unfortunately, by that time there was no one who knew where Maude's information came from. The birth, death and marriage dates that I have been able to confirm with other sources have been accurate. It was kept in the "lock box" with other important papers such as deeds.

Detail: • Pages one thru four appear to have been copied from a family Bible possibly of Geroge Washington Wilkinson and Mianda (Richardson) Wilkinson. • Page five is totally unrelated to the Wilkinson/Richardson families. • Pages six thru eight may be from a different source as they give Mianda's parents and grandparents information. There is no information about George's Wilkinson ancestors. • Page nine is information about Jennie (Wilkinson) Ellis' family. This is the only entry for anyone of this generation although others had family information prior to 1907 that is not included. • Page ten goes back to the family of George and Mianda (Richardson) Wilkinson and lists marriages.

There are no locations given for any of the events, however:

• George and Mianda (Richardson) Wilkinson lived in Novi Township, Oakland County, Michigan by 1840; Eagle Township, Clinton County, Michigan in1850; Howell Township, Livingston County, Michigan about 1856-1872 and finally by 1872 until their deaths in 1914 Vernon Township, Shiawassee County Michigan. Their adult children mostly lived in Shiawassee County, Michigan.

Francis Richardson lived in Leicester, Genesee (later Livingston County), New York according to the 1820 U.S. Census. By April of 1838 Francis was living at Novi Township, Oakland County, Michigan where his daughter Elizabeth died and he remained there until his death. He was buried at Novi Corners Cemetery as are a number of other family members including daughter Elizabeth and his wife Submit (See: Cemetery Records of Oakland Co. Mich V.3 (1926), pg. 122 and 123).

Rossel Richardson also appears on the 1820 U.S. Census at Leicester, Genesee (later Livingston County), New York as the entry before his son Francis.

• Rossel Richardson was probably born in Connecticut. His Revolutionary War Service in the Connecticut Line is documented several places (See Revolutionary War Pension Application S43932 Richardson, Rossel or Russel. It is dated 1818 and1820 and he is residing at Leicester, New York. Some indexing is also under the given name“Roswell”.) He enlisted at Exeter, Connecticut in 1777.

The last entry in the transcription is the death of Maude's mother Mary (Yerkes) Wilkinson on 29 October 1907. Her husband's parents George and Mianda (Richardson) Wilkinson both died in 1914. If the source was a family Bible it may still have been in their possession at the time of Mary's death.

I found the original notes and am posting the images. They are on very poor quality paper and had been folded several times. I was unable to scan them so took photos instead. The quality of the photos is not as good as I would like, but it was difficult to work with the paper to flatten it and not do further damage. It was in better condition when I made my transcription close to 50 years ago now.

Some problems with the format showed up when this was posted - I will try to fix this so the information isn't run together once I figure out how to do it. Sorry!
