Breeder: B. C. Watkins, Oakford, IL. Owners: E. J. & J. W. Moore; and later the JA Ranch, Paloduro, TX. Sire of Joe Hancock Died 1930 Note: There is some confusion about who his dam was. The reason is that there is some evidence that there were actually 2 stallions sired by Peter McCue named John Wilkins. This one, and another one, foaled in 1912, whose name was later changed to John Wilkes (also in this database) that was out of a Pid Hart mare called Big Alice. See AQHA Legends Volume 2 Chapter 5. AQHA records spell his name as John Wilkins but it was also spelled Wilkens.
