Parentage of Thomas Wilkins

Thomas Wilkins is a possible son of Samuel Wilkins and possible brother of John Wilkins, who was the Administrator of Thomas Wilkins' estate. The first record of Thomas Wilkins in Augusta County was on the List of Musters in 1742 (listed below), making him born no earlier than 1721. More research necessary to prove this suspected relationship. Another possibility would be that Thomas could be a brother of Samuel Wilkins.
