Linda,

Go here:

Look for Amelia Tweedale Wilkinson. That's probably not a coincidence.

There are many more Wilkinsons mentioned at the Historic chester site. Just search for them.

I went back to the census and found William Wilkinson in 1900 - Pennsylvania, Delaware County, Chester Ward 7.

William Wilkinson Head January 1856 44 Married born in England, both parents born in England Immigrated in 1869. He is listed as naturalized. He's an insurance agent.
Annie Wife March 1857 43 Married born in England both parents born in England.
Nellie daughter March 1882 18 Single born in PA both parents born in England Music Teacher.
Edna daughter born December 1884 15 Single born in PA both parents born in England
Amelia daughter born December 1886 13 Single born in PA both parents born in England

That would make Amelia just about the right age to graduate from Chester High School in 1903.

I found them again in 1910. Edna is no longer with them but is still living as Annie is listed as having three children, all living. William and Annie have been married for 29 years. This census lists Williams year of immigration as 1870.

Annie is a widow in 1920 and 1930 living with Nellie and Amelia. Nellie is a music teacher in a private school and Amelia is a stenographer for a construction company. Their address is 41 West Eighth Street from 1910 - 1930. That house is still there.
