There is a large pond presently called Wilkins Pond in the middle of a parcel of land owned from 1760-1785 by my ancestor James Turner. This is south of the Dan River, around Lawsons Creek. I haven’t seen any pond mentioned in land deeds of James Turner or the other people in that area. It probably wouldn’t be mentioned, unless it was on someone’s property line.
Can anyone tell me how far back that name goes and what Wilkins (or Wilkin?) family or person it was named for?
