Notes

  • ----------------
    I have traced my family's origins to Shropshire, England to myancestor John Jenkins, 1656-1717, married to Martha Garner, 1656-1752. They settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia. ...

    They had two sons, Ezekiel Jenkins, 1695-1750, & William Jenkins,1704-1747.  William Jenkins had one son, William Jenkins - 1740-1787,had 4 sons, one of which was James Randolph Jenkins, 1760-1824, whowas born in Fairfax County, Va., & had 19 children, one of which wasSamuel M. Jenkins, 1789-1872, who was the father of my greatgrandfather, Owen Selvy Jenkins, who died of wounds from the civil warat the age of 35.  Samuel M. Jenkins was the first of this set ofJenkinses to be born in Union County, South Carolina.

    Two land purchase records indicate that Samuel bought land in 1831 and1835 in Attala County, Mississippi.

    About 1849, Sam's wife Sara died.  She is not in the 1850 census.  Theyoungest child is Richard, reported to be only 1 year old.

    Samuel's age is reported as the same in the 1850 and 1860 censuses.He is reported as 66 years old both times.  Neither of these is right,according to his Bible record, reported to me by another researcher.The entry there says he was born in 1791, making him about 59 in 1850and about 69 in 1860.  Sam's wife Sara Catherine is missing here, andpresumed dead before 1850.  I have not found a death record.

    "According to his Bible record Samuel was born Nov 5, 1789, SarahCatherine was born 26 Feb 1791. Samuel died after 1870, his son JohnJames Jenkins bought his property and each heir is listed on the courtdocument Dated January 1873."

    In comments on a photo of Sam (attached to this profile), anotherdescendant reports his middle initial as M.

    "This photo on metal plate was from my Grandfather's things. On theback it reads 'S. M Jenkin,' or Jenkins, but the s on the end is notvisible. S M Jenkins was my Grandfather's Great-Great Grandfather."

    In 1850 other Jenkins and Burell family members are living nearby.Next door to Samuel and his children is John (Berry) Burrell, marriedto Sam's daughter Polly (Mary Ann) Jenkins. Others enumerated on thesame page are Isabella Burrell and her husband John Jenkins.  He isreported by one genealogy as John James Jenkins, another son ofSamuel.  With the dates of birth of the other known children ofchildren of Samuel M Jenkins and his wife Sara, John could have beenborn around 1825, as reported.  But his does match any child reportedby other sources.  Also on the same page are a brother of John andIsabella Burrell, William (Riley) Burrell, who is married to SamJenkins' daughter Anna (Anne) Jenkins.

    The youngest girl, Sally, age 4 in 1850, has either gotten marriedearly (age 14 or earlier) or died before this census.  Nancy appearsto be the second wife of Samuel, since she has not appeared with thefamily before, and Samuel had no wife in 1850.  Elizabeth is adaughter of the first wife.  A genealogy reports the name of the firstwife as Sara Catherine, with maiden name unknown.

    This genealogy reports no death date, and from other sources, herdeath date is unknown.  That genealogy reports all children as thechildren of Sara, but has no second wife.  Sara Catherine is reportedborn in 1790.  This would mean that when Richard (Dick) was born in1849, Sara was about 59 years old.  This is not very likely, thoughperhaps possible.  This genealogy also, lacking the 1850 and 1870censuses, reports Nancy as a child of Samuel, rather than his wife.But there is no child named Nancy in the 1850 census.

    In the 1870 census, there are two females in the household with Sam,one is Nancy, correctly reported as 10 years older than in 1860.Betsie (nickname for Elizabeth) might be the daughter Elizabethreported in 1860, but her reported age in 1870 is 13 years greaterthan in 1860.  I have not found any further documentation to clarifyNancy's relationship to Samuel.
