I am trying to connect James Wilkins to a possible sister Elizabeth. Elizabeth married James McDade. Helly mentioned in will is found to be Hetty (nickname for Henrietta). James McDade and Elizabeth (?Wilkins)are the parents of Henrietta "Hetty" McDade who married Jacob Cobb. Henrietta McDades siblings are mentioned in the inventory.If you have info that might prove James and Elizabeth to be siblings-I would be very interested in hearing from you.
