I have the following from a book on RI in which Jemima Wilkinson is mentioned.

"Abner Brownell returned home in 1778 after serving his county during the British invasion of RI,and when the well-known Jemima Wilkinson, the noted Evangelist of the Society of Friends and duaghter of Jerimiah & Elizabeth Amy (Whipple) Wilkinson of Cumberland RI appeared at Westport, he,with many other of the young men, became a follower of this great teacher. Mr. Brownell kept a detailed diary of Wilkinons travels and followers which is now in the possesion of his granddaughter, Mrs. Leary of Adamsville RI.

At some later time Jemima was removed to Crooked Lake NY. Hope some of this might help
