  • Richard Kevin Jenkins referred to his father's name as Wilmer Kent,but later corrected the middle name to Kendall.  William/Wilmer'ssister Kathlyn refers to his name as WIlliam Kendall.  But I found hisdeath record reports his name as Wilmer Kent.

    "Willmer didn't like his name Willmer [Kendall].  He went by Bill andsometimes referred to himself as William; his grandchildren called himPop."
