Mr. Wilkinson died in Burleson County on August 15, 1848. His widow, Mrs. Amanda Wilkinson, was appointed administrator of his estate. He left two minor children. Wilkinson and his wife were buried beneath a huge post-oak tree on a knoll overlooking the Yegua Creek, about five miles east of Dime Box, Lee County, in Burleson County. The tombstone at the grave of Mr. Wilkinson was of marble and bore an inscription. The grave of Mrs. Wilkinson was marked only by a rough stone and there was no inscription on it. An iron fence, fashioned by hand, enclosed Mr. Wilkinson's grave. The graves in 1938 were on land owned by Mr. August B. Kubena. The State of Texas had the remains of Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson removed and on April 8, 1938 reinterred in the State Cemetery at Austin where a new joint monument was erected at their graves.
