  • Stella is recorded under the names Susie, Stella and Estella.  It appears her name was Susie (or maybe Susan) Estella, but I have not found definitive documentation.

    The birth record I found reports her name only as Estella Hannum.

    Susie married Daniel P Jenkins in Arkansas County where they were both living.  I have not found whether the service was held in their town of St Charles or in the county seat of DeWitt, about 15 miles to the west, where they would have had to get the license.

    In 1900, Daniel and his wife Susie are living next door to Dan's brother Charles, who is reported as 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.

    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, with only 6 months between their birth dates.  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 wrote.

    Roy does not appear in the 1910 census, when he should be about 11 or 12.  We conclude that he died befiore 1910.  Four more children were born before 1920.

    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.
