Jane Eliza Wilkenson Sylvester
Sorry, don't know anything about your family. Miss Jane was buried in one of the family cemeteries back in Farmington, MO. Her daughter married into the Zolman family. The Sylvesters and Zolmans must have been neighbors to have been buried in Glenda Cemetery started by the Zolmans.

You saw the various "Wilkenson" Family Death Certificates (just 16 each) from Missouri Digital Heritage, correct? Non-hyper link at:
https://s1.sos.mo.gov/records/archives/archivesdb/deathcertificates/Results.aspx

For "Wilkinson", there currently are 685 death certificates on that web-site.

So Jane's death certificate has her surname spelled "Wilkenson" instead of "Wilkinson" Don't see any "Wilkenson" obituaries on Mackley Genealogy but there are several for your surname:
http://www.mackleygenealogy.com/~mackley/Obit_Surname_Image_Pages/Obit_Surnames_W/Obit_Surname_List_Page_WI_2.php#Wilkinson

If you ever find her parents' memorial entries, give a yell and I'll link them up to her memorial entry. Didn't see any matches using "Wilkenson" surname and for a William & Mary "Wilkinson" born before 1810, there are still several hundred hits on Find-a-Grave.

Besides Ancestry.com, have you tried https://familysearch.org/

RE: 114082303
Tom,
Linking parents and children can only be done from the child's page--in this case, you manage the child, so only you can do it. To make this easier for you, I submitted an edit to add the parents on your page. Check up at the top of your profile page at the tab that says Edits. When you click on that you can accept or decline the suggested edit. If you don't accept or decline the edit, after 21 days the system will accept it automatically for you.

It looks like Henry most likely died in Perry county MO between 1900-1910 (unless he moved away to live with a child before dying). You can check with the Perry county clerk or the local historical society to see if they have a death record for him or his wife. Hopefully this will show where they are buried. You could also inquire if there is a probate file or will for one of them, that sometimes has clues too. Hope this helps.

Tom,

I forget if I already asked you this, but do you have a picture of Jonathan Swan(n)'s tombstone in the Wilkinson Cemetery? He is one of Richard Swan's children and I think he may be there as well. I am in tough with Jonathan Swan's gg grandson and would like to help. He's also my gg grand uncle. Thanks as always for your help.

RE: William Wilkinson
no I don't.

The information I had came from the Brazeau cemetery burial records of their child whom I linked to them.

Wilkinson Cemetary
Tom,

I recently took a little adventure out to Seventy-Six, MO. I was honestly intrigued by the whole place. I've always been interested in "ghost towns" and I really enjoyed the story behind this place. I don't have any connections (family wise) as far as I know, but I would be most interested in searching for the cemetary--as long as you feel comfortable in supplying me with a direction or coordinates to find it.

Sincerely,

Charles B.

Tom,

Can you please send me the coordinates for the Wilkinson Cemetary? They are my ggg parents as well. Do you have a photo of Richard Swann's headstone? I would like to try and make a visit out there in August. Thanks!
