  • Name Thomas Jefferson WILKERSON 
    Nickname Jeff 
    Born Oct 1865  Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • Jeff's obituary also states that he was born in Clarksville, Texas in 1860. The 1860 birthdate is not correct - he appears to be age 5 in the 1870 census. I believe the birthplace of Texas is correct - Jeff's birthplace was given as Texas in the 1870 census, and the 1900 census. The 1880 census, the 1910 census, and the 1920 census all give his birthplace as Missouri. The 1930 census gives his birthplace as Tennessee.
