David M. Pilkinton was the son of Jefferson and Mary Renfro Pilkinton of Lawrence/Giles/Maury Co.'s TN. In most all the census enumerations he goes by "Dee". Jefferson's parents were James Smith Pilkinton and Cynthia Davidson Renfro. Dee was born in Lawrence County, Tn. around April or May of 1860 according to the 1860 census. He is specifically mentioned as Jeff Pilkinton's son in Giles County court papers: "Crumley v. Story et al" I find him and Lou in 1900 Vanzandt Co., TX census, the 1910 Giles County, TN census, and the 1920 and 1930 census of Colbert County, AL. I do not know when he died or was buried, but his wife and several sons are buried in Graham Cemetery in Hardin County, TN. I would be a cousin to any of his descendants because Jefferson was my gr-gr-grandfather. My gr-grandfather Tom Pilkinton was Dee's younger brother. I will gladly share information and photos in exchange for any available scans of your old Pilkinton photos. I am also currently clearing, marking, and fencing the abandoned cemetery where David's grandparents James and Cynthia are buried. I welcome all correspondance. Thanks, James Pilkinton
