I believe there may be a connection between our families. My Great Grandfather was James Wilks(birthdate around 1830 in Birmingham, England). I do not know any of his siblings but he was married to Ann Darroll and they owned one of the Swan Restaurant and Inns there. They had 14 children the youngest one being my grandfather, Henry Darroll Wilks born Aug. 31st, 1867,I do not know any of the siblings names. Henry and his wife, Catherine Airy Cook Douglas, came to Canada in 1911 with their daughter Mary (Maize) and son (my Father) Walter Charles Douglas Wilks.
They moved to Cincinnati, OH in 1923 which is where I was born and still live. I am looking for names of Henry's siblings and Jame's siblings. I also wish to go back further than James. Being both our families are from Birmingham there is a good chance we could be from the same line. Do any of these names sound familiar to you. I hope we can help each other. I would love to here from you. My e-mail address is Nakoma4058@aol.com
