Notes

  • Joseph Benjamin Jenkins, Jr, changed his name to Brian Jay.  Reportedto me by descendant Richard Kevin Jenkins.  Also name is recorded asBrian Jay in the Epperson Genealogy.
    --  http://epperson.eppygen.org/FamilyTree/F684.htm

    I also received communication from Brian's son Bruce about familymembers.  Bruce says Brian Jay is also known as Benjamin Jenkins.Brian Jay is reported in the 1920 census as Benjamin J.  I was laterin touch with Brian directly.

    Jenkins, Ben Jr Son M W 21 Single HS-2 b OK lived in Whittier CA in1835 Sewing mach repairman, own business

    Note that Ben Jr (later changed his name to Brian Jay) is reported asSingle.  There is a conflict here with other family information.  Hisson Bruce reports that his half-sister Sherry Dale is the daughter ofLaverna Riddle.  The conflict is that Sherry Dale was born in 1936,and is enumerated with her grandparents in Whittier, California, inthe 1940 census.  This is consistent with the 1940 report of Ben Jr'sresidence in 1935 in Whittier.  In the 1940 census, 3-year-old Sherrywas enumerated in the household of her mother's parents.

    Laverna must have died before the 1940 census, though it has beensuggested that they were divorced.  in 1940 Brian (Ben) was reportedas Single rather than Widowed or Divorced.  I have not found either amarriage or a divorce record for Brian and Laverna.  I have not founda 1940 census record for Laverna Riddle Jenkins.  Their marriage wouldhave been about 1935 or very early 1936, based on Sherry's birth datein December 1936.
