Sorry I can't help you with George, but I'm wondering if we are looking for the same family?

I am the ggg granddaughter of Mary Wilkinson, b. 12/10/1812 in , Nelson, KY, d. 08/04/1876 in , Spencer, IN, m. 09/02/0830 in , Nelson, KY, Joshua Burkhart, b. 03/25/1810, in , Nelson, KY, and d. 05/29/1870 in , Spencer, IN.

They had the following children: Martha Jane, b. 1831, Benjamin Franklin, b. 1833, Feorge W. b. 1835, Charles Wilkinson (my line) b. 1837, Nancy E. b. 1841, Joshua, b. 1843, Mary Ann, b. 1846, and William M. b. 1848.

From the dates, it's possible that your George is Mary's grandfather and that John G. could be her uncle. How many Wilkinson families could have been in Nelson, KY at that time?

I'd love to share if we are family.
