    Jana, who has some helpful details on this Jenkins family, gives ussome info to fill in gaps from the records.  This includes the maidenname of James' wife, Bernice Trussell.  The Trussell family shows upin several households in the vacinity of Jenins households.  Assumingthat Jana has the correct name from family sources, when we see the1940 census, where James' wife is reported as Bernice, that theenumerator in 1930 misheard Bernice's name (Bernie) as Vernie.
