Birth of son Living JENKINS


  • All his siblings called him Bud.  His nieces and nephews called himUncle Bud.

    The name is spelled as Carthal in the Family Group Sheet from Harold KChristian.  Two childhood censuses list him as Carthel.  The cemeterylisting gives the spelling as Carthal.  This is one indication thatthis was the spelling used by the family.  In May 2009, Bud's sonCarthal Trent contacted me and his spelling of his name confirmed thecorrect spelling of Carthal.

    Bud's gravestone has only the initial C.  In May 2007, Lou Ila Jenkinsfound some old family notes she wrote down, probably in the 1950s, butthey contain no date or source info.  This has the name of Bud and hisson Trent spelled as Carthal.  I found the Bud's death informationfrom Bell County, Texas, also spells his name Carthal.

    Bud's son Trent, in giving me birth places of some members of hisfamily, told me his father was  born in Ft Cobb.  But I see that threemonths after his birth, Joe and Jennie Jenkins were reported in the1910 census in Marlow, in Stephens County, where his father was theCity Marshall.  They later lived in  Mt View, Kiowa County, Oklahoma,and then were in Ft Cobb, Caddo County, following that, where theywere reported in the 1930 census.

    In 1910, Bud was just a few months old.  The enumerator reports hisage as 3 months.  But it appears they had not yet named the child atthat point.  He is just Baby Jenkins.

    In 1912 Bud accompanied his mother to British Columbia, Canada, wherehis father had gone earlier to work on the Canadian-Alaskan Highwayproject.  Jennie took all the children by train across the continentto join her husband.

    Jenkins, Carthal age Male 3 Farmer Born Texas Citizen of Texas TrainCMR 356 from Oklahoma to Vancouver

    In 1920 He is recorded as Author C, and as Carthel in 1930, when hisfamily was living in Mt View, Kiowa County, Oklahoma.

    Jenkins, Juliva  Wife  FW 39 TX GA NC
    Jenkins, Author C  Son M W 10 OK TX TX

    His age is given as 10 in the January census.  This would seem toindicate he was born in 1909, and the date of birth from familysources is 28 December 1909.

    In the 1930 census, Bud was reported in his parents' household in FtCobb, Caddo County, Oklahoma.

    In the 1940 census, Eyline is listed as Dorothy I, which seems toindicate that Dorothy was her first name, rather than the middle name,as might be indicated by other listings as Eyline D.  She always wentby Eyline.  In the 1910 and 1920 censuses she is listed as Eyline (orIlene).

    Jenkins Carthal Son M W 2 Oklahoma  Anadarko, Caddo County OK in 1935

    Bud's son Trent tells me that Bud worked for his older brother Asa inAsa's appliance business before WWII.  This is consistent with thereport in this 1940 census that Bud and Eyline lived in Anadarko in1935.  There is no indication just when they moved, but it would havebeen after the birth of Carthal Trent in October 1937.

    They were also reported in the 1940 city directory for Oklahoma City.The name of the dairy Bud worked for is reported in this directorylisting.

    Both Bud and his younger brother Orville worked at Tinker field AirForce Base in Midwest City (Oklahoma City) during World War II.  Budand Eyline were living in the Oklahoma City area and Orville livedwith them a while during that wartime work in the City.  Bud's sonMichael Thomas was born in Oklahoma City in 1943.  In 1941 Bud islisted under his middle name Carthal.

    In 1944, during World War II, Bud and Eyline were still living inOklahoma City, where Bud was working at Tinker Field Air Base.  Bud'sson Trent told me he remembered my father, Orville Lee Jenkins, livingwith them during the war when Orville was also working at Tinker Fieldas a Radio Repair technician.

    After the war, Bud moved back to Chickasha, Oklahoma, where hisdaughter LaRhonda Eyline was born.  Bud's son (my first cousin) Trentgave me the birthplaces for himself and his siblings and their motherEyline Lynch.  In Chickasha Bud had a Maytag dealership in next doorto the City Hall and Police Department.  Bud shared the building withhis brother, my father Orville Lee Jenkins, who ran a radio sales andrepair business, until the early 1950s.

    I found listings for them in the 1947 Chickasha City Directory.

    Arthur Carthal (Bud) was ill for some time before he died.  He wasstill living in Chickasha, Grady County, Oklahoma, at the time of hisdeath.  Other family sources, including my cousin and Bud's nephewHarold K Christian, have no place of death, but report the date.

    However, I found out in May 2007, from his nephew Asa Lee, that hedied in Temple, Texas, while in the Scott White Hospital.  I laterfound the record in the Texas Death Index.  His heart was weak fromthe effects of rheumatic fever he suffered as a child.  He decided notto go through the operation to repair or replace one of the valves inhis heart.  He died on 24 January 1955.

    Bud was buried in Fairlawn Cemetery in Chickasha.  Though Bud isburied in a plot for two, the second place is unused.  His wife Eylinemarried a second time to Wayne Wornom.  They moved to Oklahoma Citysome years later, and Eyline apparently passed away and was buriedthere in another family plot.  As of July 2014 I have not found theburial information for Eyline Lynch Wornom.

    Fairlawn Cemetery records report the date of burial as 19 October1955.  But we see from the death certificate, that was the date ofdeath.  The body was not removed from the hospital by the funeral homeuntil 20 October.  His obituary reports the burial was on 20 October.
