    In 1910, Stewart and his wife Irene are enumerated in Cass County,where he grew up.  Irene was born in Illinois.  The likely grave ofNona Lee, in fact, reports her birth date was 30 January 1910.

    Stewart's mother here is named as Jane, but his mother's name wasJulia E Ward.  The age here also fails to match Julia's birth date in1857.  But every census age for Julia matches this.  Even the 1900census reports her birth date as September 1856 (while the date on hergrave is 17 September 1857).  But even so, the 1900 census stillreports Julia's age as 48!

    The number of children matches Julia's report in the 1900 census, whenshe was living with her son Ira.  Birth birth state informationdiffers here, being Alabama for Jane and her parents.  All previouscensuses have reported Julia born in Georgia.  But Alabama matchesthis census report of the birth state of Stewart's mother.

    There is another Texas birth record of a child who must have diedbefore the 1910 census.  But no death or burial record has been foundfor this child.  No geneder is reported for this infant.

    I have found three Jenkins entries in Oklahoma for J S and hischildren.  The details from family sources are spotty, so there aresome uncertainties.  I have not found a grave or death information forIrene.

    J S matches J Stewart Jenkins, son of John Cullen Jenkins and JuliaWard Jenkins.  Nona Lee matches Nona Lee, daughter of JS inWommack-Jenkins genealogy by Dottie Wommack McNeely, a Jenkinsdescendant.  Nona's age of 2 months in April 1910 matches the birthdate on this grave.  These deaths in 1918 were probably because of theflu epidemic.

    Jack matches a son Jack in Dottie Wommack's Cass County genealogy, butshe has no date of birth for Jack.  But Jack here was born in 1906,and does NOT appear in the 1910 census of the family.  Floyd'sreported age of 2 years in 1910 census above would make him born in1908, not 1906.  But 2 years error is not unusual in censuses, due todifferent census dates and where birth dates fall.  Dottie has noFloyd in this family, though he is in the 1910 census.

    The death and burial of Stewart and his daughter Nona in 1918 and hisson Jack in 1922 tells us that Stewart and Irene moved from CassCounty, Texas, to McCurtain county, Oklahoma (just north of the RedRiver) before 1920 and Irene continued there after 1920.  No record ofIrene and Jack in the 1920 census has been found.
