born in Harrison or Taylor Co., VA [now WV]:
  1.  Cecelia / Celia Elizabeth WILKINSON, b. 11 Jul 1844; d. 8 Oct 1912, Ross Co., OH; m. Enoch Fenton ELIFRITZ (1841-1911)
  2.  Eusebius / Eucebius / Eucebus Loman WILKINSON, b. 1845/6; d. 17 Mar 1920, IN; m. Elizabeth J. DANNER (1847-1923)
  3.  (Child) WILKINSON, b. ca. 1848; died young
  4.  Mary M. WILKINSON, b. 1850; m. Andrew Jackson PRITCHARD (c1846- ); of Parkersburg, Wood Co., WV

born in Taylor or Ritchie Co., VA [now WV]:
  5.  Rachel A. WILKINSON, b. 1851/2; m. William A. CHILDRES / CHILDERS; of Salem, Harrison Co., WV
  6.  Frances Alice WILKINSON, b. 1853/4; m. Benjamin Jackson CROUSER (1860-1906), of Parkersburg, Wood Co., WV
  7.  Benjamin Franklin WILKINSON, b. 13 May 1855/56; d. 18 Feb 1925, Ritchie Co., WV; m. Eliza A. TONGE (1865-1935)
  8.  Daniel B. WILKINSON, b. 26 May 1858; d. 7 Apr 1931, Columbiana Co., OH; m. Katherine Lydia "Kate" FITTRO (1863- )
  9.  Josephus S. WILKINSON, b. 6 May 1860; d. 8 Mar 1864
10.  Ocran WILKINSON, b. 1861; d. 19 Mar 1865

The closest recognized name I could find to Eucebus was Eusebius, an early historian of the Christian Church.
In the 1900 Census, Sarah states she'd had ten children and lost three; she was having them at two-year intervals, so I'm assuming there was a child born ca. 1848.

Others in Household:
Grandson:  William Dennis "Willie" PRITCHARD, b. 15 Jan 1870, Ritchie Co., WV
Adopted Daughter:  Mary McINTIRE / McENTIRE, b. 1865/6

William should be surnamed PRITCHARD; he is their grandson.  (Note that, at age 50, Sarah is too old to be William's mother; plus, there is a 12-year gap between Daniel and William.)

This stream is a tributary of Bond's creek... [and] though it is but a small stream, it drains a fertile region, and not a few prominent pioneer names have an association with its history...
