211. John Aaron WILKINSON was born on 20 Oct 1864 in Beaufort Co., NC and died after Apr 1930 in Raleigh, Wake, NC.

General Notes: John, a third son of Jordan and Mary, was one of our most notable citizens. He disliked to work on the farm and for that reason was thought to be lazy, but his later activities certainly disproved that idea. He wanted to learn the lumber business. When he applied for work at the Roper Saw Mill they told him that they had no work to suit him, but he told them he could pile lumber and was given a job and he soon became foreman on the yard. He studied the business diligently and in about two years he was placed in charge of a big mill in Edenton where he lived high and handsome. In 1893 he moved to Belhaven, and built a large lumber mill which greatly accelerated the town's growth, and during the balance of his life he promoted the continual growth and development of the town. He was partly responsible for the enactment of the State Drainage Law and prior to its enactment, he and his brother, Sam, built a dredge at the head of Broad Creek Run and from thence cut a canal across a portion of Dismal Swamp all the way to Acre Ridge and opened up an immensely rich territory which is now Terra Ceia. He was instrumental in forming Pantego Drainage District which was the first district formed under the new law, and of Albemarle District which includes all of the Pungo Settlement. The drainage law was drawn by John H. Small and myself. He promoted the development of all of the lands embraced in the districts and thus contributed to the prosperity of many farmers, and added to the wealth of the community and of Beaufort County. As a result of these operations, many other drainage districts have been formed throughout Eastern North Carolina, and the benefit derived by the State is inestimable. He married Virginia Heisner and built a mansion with a beautiful view all the way down the Pungo River to Pamlico Sound. This home is now operated as the River Forest Manor. A fourth son, Jordan, Jr., married and moved to Belhaven. He worked the with his brother, John, all of his life.

Fact: Constructed The River Forest Manor, 1899, Belhaven, Beaufort, NC. In 1899, John Aaron Wilkinson, President of J.L. Roper Lumber Company and Vice-President of Norfolk & Southern Railroad, began building the Victorian mansion known today as the River Forest Manor. Italian craftsmen were called in to carve the ornate ceilings, and by 1904, the mansion was complete - with carved oak mantels for each of the eleven fireplaces, sparkling cut glass leaded into windows, crystal chandeliers glittering from the ceilings, tapestry placed above the mahogany wainscoting in the dining room and two baths so large that they included oversized tubs for two. Eight years after the completion of his showplace, Wilkinson married a beautiful New Yorker who shared the house with him for many years.

At his death, the house was sold to J.W. Hines of Rocky Mount In 1947 it was purchased by Axson Smith of Belhaven, whose experience in hotel management was partially gained at the Drake & The Palmer House in Chicago. Since then it has become world famous for its restaurant, hotel, marina & shipyard and it is featured in Country Inn's of the Old South, the National Geographic Magazine, as well as on the front covers of North Carolina Accommodations Directory and Country Inn's of America (Southeast Edition), and by many newspapers.
