Anecdote*22 March 1965 Mark Lewis, in a proposed letter dated 22 Mar 1965 (which he never typed or sent) to Robert 'Bob' Erskine Lewis (born 1904 in Lawrenceburg, Ind) stated that in 1937, while living in St. Louis, he received an eleven page document from Miss Anne P. Burkhom, a descendant of Levin Bestbridge Lewis, entitled "Incidents in the Life of Captain Kendall Major Lewis (1771-1861)," as recorded by his son Levin Bestbridge Lewis (1809-1892). He names all the children of Levin I, but not of Levin II. He states that the wife of Levin I was Peggy Major, and you show that she was a daughter of Rowles Major. However, the will of Rowles Major, dated 22 Jan 1750/51, proved 1 May 1751, did not show a daughter Margaret (or Peggy). He named a daughter Mary and sons Phillip, John, Caleb, Levin (I) and Kendall (the last three were minors). The fact that Levin I named sons Levin and Kendall is rather persuasive.3

Marriage*before 1687He married Elizabeth Taylor, daughter of James Taylor I (Miona) and Elizabeth Benston, before 1687 at Accomack Co, VA. In 1699 James Taylor Sr. of Accomack County and his wife deeded 75 acres each to daughters Margaret Taylor and Elizabeth and her husband Thomas Wilkinson. In 1719 Samuel and Margaret (Taylor) Melson sold their 75 acres to Thomas Wilkinson..3,4,2 
Tithable list*1687Thomas Wilkerson I was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, in 1687. He was shown as Thomas Wilkderson in Capt Custis' precincts.5 
Tithable list1690He was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, in 1690. He was shown as Thomas Wilkderson in Capt Custis' precincts.5 
Deed of Gift - Rec'd*1699He received by deed of gift in 1699 at tract A170, southwest of New Church, Accomack Co, VA. James Taylor Sr. and his wife Elizabeth deeded 75 acres of this this tract to two daughters, Margaret Taylor and Elizabeth with her husband Thomas Wilkinson. In 1719 Samuel & Margaret (Taylor) Melson of Nanticoke sold their 75 acres to Thomas Wilkerson who thus became the owner of both parts.6 
Death*circa 1725He died circa 1725 at Accomack Co, VA. Thomas Wilkerson was dec'd by 24 July 1733 when Thomas Wilkerson "son of Thomas" and Elizabeth, "widow and relic of said Thomas and daughter of James Taylor" deeded 50 acres to Joseph Myers and Elizabeth his wife "for divers good causes and considerations them thereto moving. This deed says that the first Thomas "by last will and testament did devise this land to said Joseph Myers and Elizabeth and heirs of said Elizabeth." This could not be true, for this deed would not be needed if Elizabeth Myers had inherited the land. If the first Thomas left a will, it was not recorded, and he could not have given the land away, for it was entailed to the second Thomas Wilkerson by James Taylor in his deed of gift in 1699. He evidently died intestate sometime between 1723 and 1733, likely circa 1725. No will or administration has been found.7,8
