  • In censuses she is Susan Williams, but in the 1900 census she is Stellah.  Earlier genealogies generally reported her as Stella.  More now seem to use Susan.  The name Stella is eerie, because Jacob's brother Daniel also married a Susan Stella named Hannon.  I suspect the name Stella/Stellah is a confusion at some levels.  Reliable records and family sources indicate her proper name was Susan Elizabeth.

    One genealogy provides some family details, though no documentation is given.  But Susan's name is given here as Stella and no parents are reported.  The other information fits Susan's family configuration.

    "I just located [Ephrain Jefferson Jenkins's] son Jacob on Findagrave and found out that Jake's wife Susan or Sudie had a half sister named Rebecca Fowler who married a John Robert Burrell.  John is related to my grandma Jenkins, whose mom was Annie Burrel.  So Jake's sister in law was my grandma's cousin's wife.  And grandma married Oscar Jenkins, my grandpa and Jake's great nephew!!  Lot to absorb, lol."
