    From the age of Nancy and Elizabeth, it appears that Nancy is thesecond wife and Elizabeth is a daughter of the first wife.  If Bettiein 1870 is the Elizabeth of 1860, however, she has gained 13 yearsinstead of ten since the last census.  All the boys named in the 1860census appeared in the 1850 census with their widowed father.

    It appears that the first wife Sara Catherine (no maiden name) died atchildbirth with Richard (Dick) in 1849.  She would have been 59 yearsold.  It is remarkable that she was still bearing children, withJoseph born about 1956 when she was about 56 years old.

    Several family genealogies report that Eliza married Caleb Paseur(name also spelled other ways).  There is a marriage record of oneEliza Jane Jenkins marrying a Caleb Paysour in Lincoln County, NorthCarolina, about three counties north of Union County, South Carolina,where the Jenkins family lived.  This could be the correct person.  Noimage was available of the record, only the Ancestry transcription.Note that the date we have here is the bond date, not the marriagedate, though it might have been the same day.

    If the wife of Caleb Pasuer is the daughter of Samuel Jenkins, thedate of death for Eliza Jane would be 1923, and not the date of 1931claimed by some, despite the fact that one genealogy cites familyclaims that Eliza lived to be 105 years old.  The wife of Caleb Paseurdied in Marshall County, Alabama.  He grave (see below) says she diedon 12 April 1923.  Her death record has her name as Lizzie JanePaseur.  Lizzie is, of course, another nickname for Elizabeth, likeEliza.

    The 1931 Alabama death record is in the name of Eliza Jenkins, who indied Calhoun County, Mississippi in 1931.  But with the last name asJenkins, this seems to be her married name  No details are posted onany genealogy I have found, nor could I find any further details ofthe Eliza Jenkins in Calhoun County.  Only the following transcriptionhas been found.

    To me, a question still remains as to whether the wife of Caleb Paseuris the daughter of Samuel Jenkins.  I have not seen anythingdefinitive in any of the genealogies.  They consistently attachcensuses for Caleb and his wife Eliza or Elizabeth to Eliza Jane, thedaughter of Samuel Jenkins.  But I have seen no further documentationto confirm that.  In the 1850 and 1860 censuses there is a Jeninshousehold headed by men who could be Eliza's brothers, Benjamin in1850 and Jackson in 1860.  Neither of these names matches a son ofSamuel Jenkins.
