I recently lost my mother and her brother; my uncle.  I’m finding a whole lot out about my grandparents by accident since. 

My “heritage” has a few surprises that stink of freemasonry.  I will explain below:


Last name Wilkinson was “chosen” or swapped into during the 1940 census on my dads side from Wilkman / Vikama (have a look at Finland’s founding “fathers” and the demise of the Russian Empire - yes THOSE Wilkman’s / Vikamas).  One of the 3 sons was birthed in England to make it easier (in my mind), to come to the US and sew his seed here - and come to the US Mr. Alfred Wilkman did. His father Karl owned THE brick factory in Finland ...

Next my mothers side.  Rodby and Bankson (of George Washington Scribe “infamy”), are dominant with a heavy dose of Viking.  My grandfather attended Antioch College in Ohio.  Rodby and literally Dr. Seuss were heavily involved in shaping me.

I’m asking this info and have been spurred on to look for it due to some really weird encounters with law enforcement of late.  Very weird encounters ... like Virgin Mary type ... help is appreciated here ... I’m in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

I read your post and was tempted to simply reply with, “huh?” Where does this “stink of Freemasonry” come in?

What are you asking of us? I honestly don’t see a question.

Hi there and welcome.

You have not asked a question about Freemasonry but posted some stuff that: a) I don’t understand, b) has nothing to do with Freemasonry, c) seems insulting to Freemasonry and finally d) seems to be some strange self-contained conspiracy about your family.

Do you actually have any questions about Freemasonry that we could look at and are you considering joining a Lodge?

I’m really confused.

I’ve got no idea what you’re talking about, nor what any of this make you think - in your words, ‘stink’ of Freemasonry.  Not one thing you’ve said means anything to me - ‘us’ I’m willing to bet, and what’s worse, appears to be an insult.  If it was not intended to be such, I think you need to explain what exactly you are asking - because I for one, cannot see any relevant question in your post, and not one of those names mean anything to me.

UM…...Yeah.  I too fail to see any connection to Freemasonry in all of that rambling.  I was hoping for at least some resemblance of a good tale with at least a hint of some sort of Masonic reference.  But, alas, none was to be found.
