Hello and Welcome
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoy looking Out My Kitchen Window. Please look at the Blog Archive to see the interesting and informative history, genealogy and photography about our ancestors. I may also include anything else I see along the way!
I am the great-great granddaughter of Joshua D. Brown, the first settler and founder of Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas in 1856. My husband’s great-grandfather was William Jackson Montgomery Wilkinson, originally from Mississippi and pioneer to Menard County, Texas in late 1860’s.
I welcome your comments and feedback. You may send them to [email protected]. Thanks for stopping by for a while. You might enjoy visiting our Facebook Wilkinson Ranch page or our website https://wilkinsonranch.com.
Oh Jan what a beautiful site. I throughly enjoyed reading it and looking thru the pictures. You have done yourself proud keep it up! I am sure everyone will enjoy it and come back to it often.
Marvelous !!! I remember Mrs. Wilkinson living at Clear Creek where we had the best 4-H and band picnics and swimming parties in the cold water. I must do this for the Luckenbachs.
The story of Menard is very good. One thing Imust check on is the reference to dances on the second floor of the Luckenbach Hardware building, maybe the old courthouse building. The quarried stone building built in 1900 had a heavy timber ufinished floor that was often filled with windmill parts and later on unassembled autos. J
