Ebenezer WILKIN & Anne JOHNSTON of Aghabog parish & Ematris parish - m. 1857
Posted by: Annie Crenshaw (ID *****0350) Date: March 30, 2010 at 13:21:18
  of 886

Searching for any connections and descendants of Ebenezer "Eben" WILKIN, born about 1824 in Ematris parish, and wife Anne JOHNSTON, born about 1838 in Cormoy, Aghabog parish, daughter of William JOHNSTON of the Mountain Hill and Eliza Jane CALVIN/COLVIN of Creevlea who married in 1837 at Stonebridge Presbyterian Church, Clones parish, Co. Monaghan.

Ebenezer WILKIN and Anne JOHNSTON married in 1857 and had children including:

1. Eliza Jane - born about 1859, married a McCONKEY

and these children born after civil registration began in 1864:

2. Joseph - born 1865
3. William - born 1867
4. Thomas - born 1869/1870/1875 (possibly several sons who died young were given the same name)
5. Eben - born 1873
6. John George - born 1877

Ebenezer "Eben" WILKIN of Kinduff died in 1901 at age 77, and his will was probated in 1902. In the 1911 census, several of the WILKIN families -- including horse dealer Thomas WILKINS, his brother John George WILKINS and their sister Eliza Jane McCONKEY -- were still living in the same part of Co. Monaghan in Newbliss town, Kinduff and Cormoy.

I'll be glad to share more information on the WILKINS, JOHNSTONS and CALVINS/COLVINS, and would appreciate any information on relatives and descendants.

Annie C.
