COPELAND : JOHNSON : WILKERSON  

Query Text:

My 2X Great Grandmother was born Margaret (Peggy) Wilkerson, in 1810-1815, in Chatham County, North Carolina, USA. I don't have given names for either of her parents, but her mother was born into the Copeland family. Her father was an immigrant, likely from County Antrim or County Down; his first initial was most likely "J". It is possible that she had one or two older brothers, but she and her red-haired twin appear to have been the only girls in the family. The mother of "Grandma Peggy" died either during or shortly after she gave birth to "Peggy" and her twin. The girls' father returned to his home in what is now Northern Ireland, took Peggy's twin with him, and left Peggy in the care of her maternal Copeland relatives. I am trying to find out the given name of Peggy's father, as well as information about what happened to him and to my 2X Great Grandaunt after they left North Carolina. I do know that there were once Wilkersons who lived in Counties Antrim and Down, so they may have been related. Does anyone have knowledge of these people? "Grandma Peggy" grew up to marry Harrison/Harris/Harry Johnson and has many descendants in North Carolina and Tennessee.
