Notes

  • 1920 Federal Census, Cass County, Texas, 20 January, Justice Precinct3, Enumeration District 3, page 7B, Naples and Dalton Rd, Hse/Fam #124

    Tefteller, Charlie StepSon M W 2yrs 9mo TX US TX [b abt Mar 1918]

    Charlie's age in 1920 would make him born about March 1918 (if theywere careful about the official census date of 1 January).  But hismilitary gravestone says he was born 21 Jan 1916.  The latter makessense becauwse his father died in August 1916.  The enumerator musthave misunderstood the reported age, or forgot it by the time he wroteit down.

    Jenkins, Harret [sic] Wife F W 38 First married at age 21 TX TX AL [babt 1892]
    Jenkins, Charlie Son M W 13 Single TX US TX [b abt 1917]

    In the 1940 census, Charlie is enumerated in his mother andstepfather's home as Charlie T Jenkins.

    Jenkins, Harriett Wife F W 49 Single Grade 5 b Texas same place in1935
    Jenkins, Charlie T Son M W 23 Grade 4 b Texas same place in 1935Common Laborer, Sawmill

    Charlie's middle initial T probably stand for the same middle name ofhis father Charles Thomas.

    A memorial in Find a Grave gives Charlie's full name as Charles TTefteller, from his military footstone.  His middle name was probablythomas like his father.
