John William Wilkinson
Little is known of John's life.
John William Wilkinson was born in Sydney to Mary North on 11 May 1871. His birth as registered was John William North. However, his birth details recorded in the Wilkinson Family Bible indicate that he was known as a Wilkinson.
He was known as Jack and worked in Cowra. It is possible, but not confirmed, that he married May J Durham at New Lambton in 1906.
I believe he died in Cowra on 14 October 1952 and there a John Wilkinson buried in Cowra Cemetery. As the photo came from among the family papers it is reasonable to assume he is from our family. The NSW BDM index lists the death in Cowra, NSW of a John Wilkinson, whose father was Charlie.
Elijah James WILKINSON (RIN: 402), son of Charles Augustus WILKINSON and Mary NORTH, was born October 01, 1873 in Goulburn, NSW. His birth record lists him as Elijah James North at Goulburn to Mary North.
His details are recorded in the Wilkinson Family Bible. Although raised as a Wilkinson, and listed in the family Bible, Elijah's birth record doesn't name a father.
He died March 24, 1961 in Lithgow, NSW.
He married Clara Beatrice Truman CLARKE who was born 1882 in Brewongle. Her parents were George Clarke (1848-c1939) and Elizabeth Chadwick (1852-1919).

There are 2 possibilities for Jean's marriage:

Elijah worked as a groom at the Lithgow Co-operative Society. He also worked as a coal miner at some stage, as it is listed on his son George's birth record. It is also possible that he had quite a good singing voice, as he is listed as singing at his niece Annie Wilkinson's wedding reception.
