Rush County, Indiana, is the birthplace of William H. Pilkenton, born 1832. He was raised in Hamilton County on a farm until 1846, attended Newcastle Academy 4 years. At 25 years of age, he married Isabell Shafer of Greenfield, Hancock County, IN. He worked in the office of Judge Gooding where he read law and was admitted to the bar. He is my husband's GGrandfather. We do not know his parents or siblings. He served in the Fifth Indiana Cavalry, Company F from 1862-1865. He resumed his law practice in Fortville. He later moved to Republic County, KS. I have more information on him, if interested.
