Will - Father's*28 February 1789Susanna was named in her father's will on 28 February 1789 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as daughter Susanna Robins in the will of Michael Robins, wife Leah. She was given a Negro after the death of David Garrett & his wife Bridget Garrett.1 
Will - Brother's*2 March 1795Susanna was named in her brother's will on 2 March 1795 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as my sister Susanna Robins in the will of John Robins Jr.2 
Marriage*circa 1797She married Jehu Wilkerson, son of Jacob Wilkerson and Mary Taylor, circa 1797 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Married Namecirca 1797 As of circa 1797,her married name was Wilkerson. 
Will - Witnessed*24 January 1797Susanna witnessed a will on 24 January 1797 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Gehu Wilkerson and Susana Wilkerson witnessed the will of Sebastian Delastatious.3 
Will - Husb's*28 August 1803Susanna was named in her husband's will on 28 August 1803 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will Jehu Wilkerson gave all his property to his wife during her life or widowhood & then to his children. To son Levin the plantation I now live on & all the rest to my surviving children except Levin. If son Levin dies without lawful issue, then my son Shadrack should have the land. My wife should have the management of my children. If wife dies before my 2 young children, Martha & Esther should be raised by the rent from my land. Wife Extr. Witt: William Selby, George Staton & Elizabeth White. Prob: Partly proved by Elizabeth White & fully proved by William Selby.4 
Land sold*1 October 1813She sold land on 1 October 1813 at Accomack Co, VA. Levin Wilkerson & wife Sally joined Susannah Wilkerson in selling to Michael Robins, 40 acres of $200, "land that was Jehu Wilkerson's and that is now in dispute between the said parties." There would have been no reason for Jehu Wilkerson's widow and his eldest son to have a dispute with Michael Robins. If the dispute was between Susannah Wilkerson and her son, Levin Wilkerson, it does not seem they would have put this in a public deed record. A logical explanation would be that Susannah was a second wife of Jehu and not Levin's mother. In fact, Susannah Wilkerson could have been Michael Robins' sister, as shown by the will of Michael Robins Sr in 1789 and the will of John Robins in 1795. The latter left property to a sister Susannah, still unmarried. Michael Robins could have been buying Jehu's land so that his sister Susannah Wilkerson would continue to have a home, without prolonging a "dispute" with her step-son over selling the land. Susannah being Jehu's second wife would also explain the 15-year or so difference in their ages, as shown by the census records, and the fact that Jehu spoke of "my two young children" in his will. Susannah would have been a sister to Jehu's brother Jesse's wife. Since no later record has been found of their two daughters, Martha and Esther, it appears they were both dec'd by 1813.5

Birth*circa 1750Jehu Wilkerson was born circa 1750 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Land bought*8 April 1779He bought land on 8 April 1779 at Accomack Co, VA. Jehu Wilkerson, of Accomack County, bought 50 acres of land from John Robins & wife Ellender, of Worcester Co, MD, for 130 puunds. The land was described as being on the north side of Ephraim Milman's plantation and bordered on the west by land of Joseph Waggaman, William Selby, John Massey and Thomas Sharpley. Then on 18 Nov 1779 another deed was given by John Robins of Worcester Co, MD, to Jehu Wilkerson for 40 acres, for 130 pounds. Since the boundaries and price were the same as the first deed, this appears to have been for the same land, with a correction for acreage. When this land was sold it was shown as 40 acres. The second deed described the land as "all swamp land unculativated," but one of the "appuntances" must have been a home. The second deed was witnessed by Jessee Wilkerson, Joshua Wilkerson, Samuel Taylor and Thomas Sharpley. With only two boundaries given in the deeds, it becomes hard to locate Jehu Wilkerson's land. Whitelaw places Waggaman's Swamp as "being generally in northeast corner of tract A170, and he shows, on the same page, Jehu Wilkerson buying land close-by, with Ephraim Milman and his wife Rachel selling their northern 100 acres to Smith Horsey in 1794, land located along present US Rt 13. A survey of the land Smith Horsey bought from the Milmans was made on 21 Feb 1794 and this shows Joseph Waggaman's land northeast of Jehu Wilkerson's land and the Milman/Horsey land southwest. Waggaman's Swamp likely extended around Jehu's land on the north and west and George Staton owned land to the south. Jehu's land was apparently located north of (in back of) Mrs. Grace Hancock's present (1991) home on Greenhill Road and would hav been west of Eastern Shore Upholstery, across and back from US Rt 13.3,4,5
