The names of Irma's parents identified in her death certificate in Clarendon VT and found at a few genealogy websites, are wrong. Her father was not George "Ken" Kendall Wilkins. GKW was her grandfather. Her mother's name was not Jennie Patterson. It was Jennie A. Wilkins. Patterson was the maiden name of Irma's grandmother, Lydia Anne Patterson Wilkins. It is general knowledge in the Doty and Wilkins families that these were not inadvertant errors. They were meant to hide the illegimate births of Irma and her siblings. The purpose was to protect family reputation which was very understandable in that era.
Inscription: There is only the most basic inscriptions in the memorial stone as can be seen in picture to right. So I have used this space as a creative way to add links to the memorials of her deceased siblings. Those in blue underlined are actively linked to Find-a-Grave memorials. Brother: Walter W. Wilkins Brother: Philip George [born]Wilkins [adopted]Estabrooks 1899-1987 Sister: Verna Cathleen Wilkins Kelley 1903-1991
