ISAAC MITCHELL WILKINSON
    who owns one of the best farms in Perry township, containing 124 acres, is one of the enterprising and progressive young agriculturists of this section. He was born at Pemberton, O., May 6, 1885, and is a son of Joseph and Dorcas Ann (Lilley) Wilkinson. Joseph Wilkinson followed agricultural industries throughout his entire life, accumulated a competency and was known as a man of sterling character. He was a member of the Baptist church and at death his burial was in Cedar Point cemetery in Perry township. His first marriage was to Louisa Nutt and she was survived by two children: Anna and Nellie, the latter being the wife of W. E. Meyers. His second marriage was to Dorcas Ann Lilley, who left but one child, Isaac Mitchell. His third union was to Mrs. Sallie Ross. Isaac Mitchell Wilkinson, after completing the common school course, became actively interested in fanning, taking possession of the ninety-three acres which he inherited and adding thirty-three acres which he purchased from G. H. Monroe. He has inaugurated many substantial improvements on his place and is justified in feeling proud of its appearance and of the productiveness of his land under his intelligent methods of cultivation.  In 1909 Mr. Wilkinson was married to Miss Tima Faye Halboth, a daughter of J. A. and Emma B. (Baughman) Halboth, the father of Mrs. Wilkinson being a merchant at Pemberton, O. She has one brother, Clay B. Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson have an engaging little daughter, Ruth Elizabeth. They attend the  Baptist church. As was his father, Mr. Wilkinson is a republican in politics, and fraternally he is identified with the Masonic lodge at Port Jefferson, O.
