I have been working for sometime on reconstructing the membership of
Spring MM, Orange co,NC. From this work it would appear that it was
Catharine Wilkinson who married John Wrightsman and was disowned in 1799.
Her parents were Francis Wilkinson (1736-1807) & Elizabeth Magnume
(1739-1802). Catharine's DOB is shown as 17 May 1778, Orange co,NC per
their gene.recs. at Cane Creek MM. Both parents' deaths are recorded at
Hope this data proves useful to you.
