John Joseph Wilkerson

M, b. 1879
     John Joseph Wilkerson was born in 1879 at Kentucky. He was the son of John Wilkerson and Florence Secore. John Joseph Wilkerson married Effie Rae McCoy, daughter of Silas Bennett McCoy and Martha Ellen Davalt, on 4 June 1913 at Lee Co., IA. John Joseph Wilkerson and Effie Rae McCoy were divorced before January 1920.
Note: Parents names per Iowa marriage register.

There is an incarceration record for a John Wilkerson of Lee County, Iowa, sentenced 28 Mar 1910 for Breaking and Entering to a maximum of 10 years at the Anamosa Men's Reformatory in Jones County, Iowa. John was shown there in the 1910 Census. In the census record it shows that he was born in Kentucky about 1883. This John WIlkerson was paroled on 17 Apr 1912 and pardoned on 14 May 1913. This may be our John Joseph Wilkerson. His incoming record shows him age 26, but the April, 1910 census shows him age 27. I suspect he lied to the police and court about his age in hopes of getting leniency on the sentence. He may or may not be the same John Wilkerson listed on the 1920 census at Laramie, Wyoming.

Note: "It was one fine Sunday afternoon that cousin Absalom, who with my father, had so many apples, and who built a distillery down by the brook, in a deep and beautiful forest, and had invited us to join him in making this elixir of life, came to our house in a terrible excitement, asking us to come down to his house for there was a man in his yard, who he thought was dying of a frightful fit. This man had come to him and asked for a drink of brandy, saying, if I did not give him some at once he would die. I did not give him any, said he, and sure enough he went into such spasms as made me afraid. 'So I have come to you.' I remember how we all ran down to see this strange and sad sight. When I got there, a most terrible spectacle greeted my eyes. ..... A seemingly strong, young man, with blue lips and staring eyes--wide open--looking into the bright sun, lay before me. He was dead. Around him were evidences of the most violent struggles. The grass was torn up by his hands and marks of great distress were on all of his features. He wanted brandy, could not get it and died of delirium tremons" (Swartz, Joel, 1904, A Short History of a Long Life, Poughkeepsie, pp. 69-70).
