    "I don't really know a lot about Ephraim's death....  I think he died in 1889 in Arkansas County. I don't know hardly anything about his Arkansas family.  Didn't know till I started researching our family that he was married to my 3rd time great grandma Sarah Greely, they had 4 kids.  Although the fourth is my great great grandpa John Samuel Tobe Jenkins, there is no census record on him but I know this was their last child."

    I had some correspondence with a man named Wylodean Burrell Edwards a few years back. He related to me that his grandmother lived to be 99 years and 10 months, died in 1985 with a exceptional memory of family history.  Nancy was the subject of my question to him as she was not on the 1850 census but was present on the 1860 & 1870 census.

    I asked him if she was a daughter, daughter-in-law, niece or perhaps a 2nd wife.  He related that "Tobe" was the illegitimate son of Nancy Jenkins, (believed to be) Samuel's daughter.  His grandmother told him that the family believed Tobe's father to be a Burden (possibly William).  William Burden was married to Samuel's daughter Deborah.

    Most family trees have Tobe listed as a son of Ephraim Jenkins, but I have not found him on any census record with Ephraim.

    At any rate, he did not believe my line connected to Samuel as James Richard Jenkins' name did not appear in the Bible record or in court records.

    "This is my great great grandpa.  Everyone claims that he is not the son of Ephraim because he is not listed on the census.  But back then they would sometimes just copy info from the previous census which would have been done before he was born.  If you could see a pic of Ephraim and my grandpa you would know that Ephraim was my granpa's great grandpa, they greatly resembled each other.  Also, Wylodene is a lady not a man"
