    A marriage record is found apparently reporting on this Daniel P Jenkins and his wife Stella Hannon.  Married in 1896, this matches the report of marriage in the 1900 census.  But the name of the wife in the 1900 census is not Stella but Susie.  Perhaps her name was Stella Susie?  We find some comfort in the listings of the 1930 census, where Dan's wife is reported as Estella.  The birth state and age match.  It is interesting further, because Dan's brother Jacob married a woman named Stella in 1891.

    In 1900, Daniel and his wife Susie are living next door to Dan's brother Charles, head of the family for all the younger brothers and sisters, after the death of both their parents about 1899.  On the other side of Charles is their brother Jacob and his wife Stella with their children.

    There is apparently an error in Emma's birth date.  Originally the enumerator had born Feb 1898 and age 1.  Another hand has marked out the 1 and written 2.  The original birth date written here could not be right if Roy's birth date is correct.  It is only 6 months between the birth dates for the two.  I think the correct birth date for Emma should be Feb 1899, which would make her 1 year old at the June census time, as the enumerator originally had.

    Note that the number of children reported is 5 children born, 5 living.  Five children are listed here.  But what about Roy, the firstborn in the 1900 census?  We would expect Roy to be about 12 years old in 1910.  This must mean he died.  In 1900 Susie has had two children, Roy and Emma.  I would have expected the 1910 census to report 6 children, and 5 living.

    Jana has some exact dates, such as Dan's day of birth 12 February 1875.  We would think her dates come from family sources, but some of these differ from records or other genealogy reports.  That date of 12 February  is confirmed in his WWI draft registration, but that document reports that the year of birth was 1874, not 1875.  The date of February 1875 comes from the 1900 census, which is notorious for wrong birth years.  Since Dan himself was reporting the information on the draft card, I will take that as the correct date.

    Jana's genealogy is the only one reporting a date of death for him.  I can find no death record for Daniel.   Jana provides no comment or documentation, making her data questionable.  So her information may help fill lin some gaps, but where other information is available, we must give priority to the other source.
