Samuel B. Pilkington of IRE, WI, IL & MO & sister Maria Pilkington Green Filer
Posted by: Linda Cox (ID *****9699) Date: March 08, 2009 at 22:14:50
  of 940

Samuel B. Pilkington traveled as a young man with his cousin John Tabor Kingston, exploring the Wisconsin wilderness, first when they were both age 18 years - in December 1837 - searching for timber stands.

December 10, 1840 Samuel B. Pilkington received a land patent for 160 acres with Margaret A. Cox in Racine, Wisconsin, Land Office in Milwaukee.

March 3, 1843 Samuel B. Pilkington received a land patent for 160 acres in Racine, Wisconsin, Land Office in Milwaukee.

Samuel B. Pilkington was living in St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri on later dates:

In Montague’s Illinois and Missouri State Directory for 1854-1855, in St. Louis under Flouring Mills: Phoenix, H. & S. B. Pilkington, north side Barry between Seventh and Fulton. (Henry, son of, and Samuel B. Pilkington).

In Kennedy’s 1860 St. Louis City Directory:
Pilkington Henry, residence West Barry, business 7th and Fulton – (son of Samuel Pilkington).
Pilkington Julian, boards 6th N.W. corner Market – (a relative perhaps?).
Pilkington Samuel B., residence West Barry, business 7th and Fulton.

1870 Census St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri, Sam B. Pilkington born about 1813 in Ireland. Need more information on this census, plus other censuses.

1880 Census St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri (2 enumerations), S. B. Pilkington, age 59 or 67, born 1813 or 1821, born Ireland, Feed Store – Feed Dealer, parents born Ireland; Elisabeth (Eliza), wife, age 45 or 48, born 1832 or 1835, born New Jersey, parents born New Jersey; Ervin (Irvin), son, age 22, born 1858, born St. Louis, Clerk in Feed Store, Feed Dealer, father born Ireland, mother born New Jersey; they lived in a German neighborhood 1st and 2nd enumeration.

Looking for the family of Samuel B. Pilkington, whom is believed to be the brother of Maria Pilkington. They were both probably born in Bantry, of County Cork of Ireland, as was their uncle Paul Kingston.

Maria (and undoubtedly Samuel B.) came to the US with her family in 1817 and they stayed for a while with the Paul Kingston family, Mrs. Pilkington being Paul's sister.

Maria married first a Mr. Green and then she married second Alanson Filer in 1834 in Cook County, Illinois.

Hoping to find more on the family in the US and in Ireland.
Any help is appreciated,
