The following biographical sketches of Phoebe Ann Wilkin’s brothers were compiled by Beverly Barner.
Dr. Peter C. Wilkin, brother of Phoebe Ann Wilkin Eager was born in 1834 and died in 1891. He married Sarah A. Fudge in 1864.
He had a daughter, Anna Powell, wife of Georgia Court of Appeals Judge Arthur Gray Powell, Atlanta, Georgia, who was a cousin of Mary Eager Daish. In 1910 they corresponded with each other and this is Mrs. Powell's information, along with information from another note that had belonged to Mumsie (Mary E.)Daish.
Dr. Wilkin was married to a widow of a confederate soldier and was a Captain of a confederate regiment, later taken into a hospital to doctor there. He was in a Florida regiment. I believe they lived in Colquitt, Georgia and had a son who was a doctor who practiced medicine there. This is an instance where part of the family fought in the Civil War on the northern side and part of them were on the southern side. Peter and his wife had seven children. Following are the ones that can be accounted for in the records to date; Anna Wilkin Powell, William J. Wilkin, Nellie Wilkin, Peter Eager Wilkin, M. D., Jonathan Wilkin, and Seth Webster.
Anna Powell had three children; Arthur Wilkin Powell, Frances and Grace.
Jonathan Stanton Wilkin, brother of Phoebe Ann Wilkin Eager was born in 1832. He married Harriet Losey Jordan. They had two sons; Peter Eager Wilkin, born in 1863, married to Kate J. Gerow in 1887 and Crosby J. Wilkin born in 1863 who lived in Missouri, possibly near Bland.
Dr. Andrew Wilkin, a half-brother of Phoebe Ann Wilkin Eager was born in 1818. The following information was obtained from a handwritten note passed down from Mary E. Daish, but not in her handwriting. Andrew’s first marriage was to the daughter of the Governor of Georgia. His second wife was a daughter of a wealthy slave holder and planter. He later moved to Texas and died there. He was a surgeon in the Confederate army and although the family was from New York, the note said he was a "Confederate from the heart, a true southerner."
