SOURCE for the story below is: Wilkinson Family geneology - prepared by Joseph Russell Wilkinson, Sr.
As remembered by James Russell Wilkinson, Sr. James Jackson Wilkinson and Rhoda Ann Gass married at Trenton, Dade Co., GA on the 18 June 1893 in the presence of Josiah Gass and family by a justice of the peace.He moved his family to Texas, arriving in a whistle stop on the Cotton Belt Railroad to a place called Bransford, Texas but is now Colleyville, Texas on the 28 April 1899. The best I can remember it had an Odd Fellow Hall, a blacksmith shop, run by my uncle John Wilkinson, a small grocery store and 4 or 5 houses, 3 of them in a row where Andy Phelps built his home. They had one room downstairs and one room upstairs what they called a box house. That is it didn’t have a frame to it and we set up housekeeping in one of them and my father to work on the steam shovel and when it left we moved to Uncle Car Austin’s place north of Grapevine Texas on Denton Creek where Clayton was born and Fane died. A short time after Fain died we moved across the road east of White’s Chapel on the Grapevine and Keller road. We moved from there to a place across the road from the Southlake School. I believe they called it and my father was called to work on the Steam shove that had moved to Camden, Ark. So my mother and brothers and I moved in with my father’s sister Mary Craig that lived on the road from Lonesome Dove and crosses Hwy 114 just west of her house. And from there we moved to Diamond Hill and my father went to work helping build the Armour Meat plant and when they started killing animals he left them and went to build Swift and Co’s plant and when they started killing he transferred to the pork cutting department where he retired just a few years before he passed away. After he transferred to the Pork Cutting Department, we moved to 2523 Market Ave, Rosen Heights, which later became part of Ft. Worth so I could start school. That was the first part of 1903.He and mother joined the Rosen Heights Baptist Church in June 1910. Brother Masters was preaching. He left and went to church in Oklahoma and Brother Henderson was called to the Rosen Heights Baptist Church. James Wilkinson was ordained a deacon in 1911.
