Birth of son Living HILL


  • Spelling appears both as Kerwin or Kerwyn.  I know the name as Kerwyn,and this is the way I find it in the 1930 census, when Kerwyn is 8years old, and the family are living in Ft Cobb, Caddo County,Oklahoma.

    He was called Kerwyn (Kerwin) by family (following the dominantpattern of this family line in calling the children by their secondname.  As an adult, however, he preferred to be called Charles.  Iremember knowing his wife Lois when I was a child.  I believe theylived in California for some time, then we visited them in Chickasha,Oklahoma, his hometown.  I have no further information about his wifeor children, except that some family members know of a son calledMark.

    Mabel was in Mt View, where she met Oscar Hill, after Joseph Asa movedhis family to Mountain View in approximately 1914.  In informationrecorded by Ruth Christian, Mabel (Kerwyn's mother) states that thefamily had lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for about oneyear.

    This sequence of statements compresses events.  Harold Christian(Jenkins Family History, private paper) reports that the family movedto Canada sometime after Lahoma was born in Mt View on 25 November1914.  They returned from British Columbia after World War One endedin 1918.  When they moved back to Mt View, Harold says they returnedto an Indian lease farm southeast of Mt View.  Mary had alreadyreturned from Canada and  was staying with her sister Sallie Christianand her family.

    At some time later Mabel comments:  "When Kerwin was about 3-4 daysold, Poppa was made City Marshall."   This reference seems to refer tothe situation at Fort Cobb.  Other factors indicate the Jenkins familymoved to Fort Cobb from Mountain View between 1918 and 1925.  Mabel'ssister Netheline was born in Mountain View 25 December 1918.  VirginiaJo Jenkins was born 28 August 1925 in Fort Cobb.  Shortly after theymoved to Ft Cobb, Joseph Asa became the City Marshall of Ft Cobb.Kerwyn was born in October 1921.  If Mabel's memory is right, thenJoseph Asa became Marshall of Fort Cobb in October 1921.

    This would be the period of time when Mabel married Oscar, and whenKerwyn was born.  Kerwyn's age is 8 in the 1930 census in Ft Cobb.This date of birth for Kerwyn yielded by this is 1922.  In July 2007my mother Lou Ila Gregory Jenkins late gave me family records she hadfound, consisting of information Lou had written down from mygrandmother Julia Virginia Terry Jenkins.  This information givesKerwyn's birth date as 27 October 1921.

    Known facts seem to indicate that Mabel and Oscar married in Mt View,and that Kerwyn was born in Mt. View.  I thus show the birth place asMt. View.
