RE: Wilkison/Wilkinson's
Were you aware of Jacob WIlkison's will?

RE: Wilkison/Wilkinson's
For Alice I think I googled the steamer G.P.Griffith and the articles about the wreck. I also have a collection of Great lakes shipwreck books, and it may have come from there. There is a great deal of controversy about Amelia's maiden name and whether it was Ladd or Wilkison. The marriage record can't be found or any definitive proof either way. There are also conflicting reports about Mrs. Wilkison and whether she was the mother of Captain Roby or the mother-in-law or neither. The Robys and Ladds share a common marker in Fort Meigs Cemetery.

RE: Wilkison/Wilkinsons
I have a copy of The Biographical and Historical Record of Wood County, Beers, 1897. A biography of David Wilkison is on page 454 and a biography of Amelia Wilkinson Perrin is on Page 1230. In addition, David and Jacob are mentioned on pages 360 and 366. Amelia has reminiscences of her family in the early days on page 358. If there is any reference not in these pages, let me know and I'll try to find the source.
