  • Della's maiden name was provided by Dorothy Wommack McNeely, a descendant of Cullen Jenkins.

    Marriage 25 Dec 1899 Morris County, Texas, USA
    Spouse Della Malonee

    A couple of grave lists comment that her maiden name was Williamson, making Mallonee a first married name.  But neither had the name of her Mallonee husband.  One also reported that Della Williamson was the wife of Ichem Warner Jenkins.  It may be that two persons and households have been combined or confused.  I have found no information on this individual named Ichem Warner Jenkins.  It is a different Jenkins family.  Other sources report his name as Isom.

    I found an Ichem Jenkins with wife Della in Hill County, Texas, in 1910 with two children mentioned in the notes on one Dalton Cemetery list.  Searches yielded some related records for them in other locations.  Ichem is reported born in Georgia, which could relate to the family of Joseph Sanford Jenkins, and his wife Della was reported born in Alabama.  I have found no connection between Ichem Jenkins and the known members of the lineage of Joseph Sanford Jenkins.  No such name appears in any of the related genealogies for J S Jenkins' family.

    I saw Della's grave in Dalton Cemetery on a visit for a Jenkins family reunion in 2009.  Her grave has no birth date and says she died in 1918.
