I don't know if you have the information you needed on your dad,s cousin yet. I found it through other posts. There's an article in the Carbondale, IL. ON MAY 19, 1919, page 1. Conductor Thomas meets Tragic Death. He died right after my dad was born. I got into the boards when looking for my dads family info, it led me to thee boards. If anyone out other has information on William F.Wilkins please email pmclaughlim60@yahoo. Com. Thank you and good luck.
