JENKINS FAMILY RECORDS

NOTE: It must be SUNG to be appreciated!
(tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic)
The Ancient Clan of Jenkins
raised their standards to the sky;
Mae-narch, Richard, John
and Seth were fathers of our clan;
Our fathers dwelt in England,
Scotland, Ireland and in Wales;
Richard was in Parliament
-- he was among the peers;
John was guide to Washington
and with him at Yorktown;
The Jenkins Clan is mighty
with a hundred thousand strong;
When danger threatened country
or a battle to be one,
The Jenkins sons have courage
any task or foe to face;

My interest in genealogy began quite by accident. I had worked as a secretary for Texas Instruments both in Dallas and Houston for a total of about eleven years. When we moved to the “country,” I retired and spent the first two years catching up on everything that I had neglected or postponed. A chance visit to the Tomball Library involved me with a newly formed group who were studying research techniques, and shortly evolved into the Chaparral Genealogical Society. I served as 2nd vice president in charge of projects, and we spent the first year or so surveying all the cemeteries in southwest Montgomery and northwest Harris Counties. Then, as a result of many meetings and discussions, THE ROADRUNNER was born. I edited this quarterly for two years, and loved every minute of it. I’ll have to admit it was quite frustrating at times, but as each came off the press, I would experience a great deal of pride and pleasure. This year [1976 -1977] I am president of the CGS, and our primary goal is to publish the earlier mentioned cemetery surveys, and to place as many genealogical books as we can afford in our library in Tomball.
For about 17 months, I have been working on a complete name index to Hathaway’s NORTH CAROLINA GENEALOGICAL AND HISTORICAL REGISTER [published 1901]. In the 40s Worth S. RAY attempted such an index, but anyone who has tried to use it can certainly realize how inadequate it is. All the names are now transcribed, and I am in the process of alphabetizing them for typing. It is a gigantic undertaking, but I feel confident that it will be a very useful tool for anyone doing North Carolina research.
Jeanne and I formed a publishing company, GENEALOGICAL PUBLICATIONS, a year ago, and have, to date, compiled, edited, printed and/or reprinted over 100 books and booklets. So, as you see, I stay rather busy but feel that I couldn’t have chosen a more fascinating pastime than genealogy!

Contributed by Mrs. G, R. JENKINS, *** address deleted *** who writes, “We have just received the first issue, Jenkins Jubilee, and are well pleased. We are in the beginning stages of our Jenkins research so I’m sure this publication will be a great help to us. We haven’t collected much data to share, however, we do have a biography to go with the James JENKINS, Sr. will on page 18 (Vol. I, No. 1) ..... Thank you for a very real service.”
The Jenkins family came originally from Wales but James Jenkins, Sr., was latterly of London, near Drawbridge; afterwards became a resident of the Island of Madeira; came to Philadelphia in 1773, and carried on business as merchant there, and purchased lands on the Susquehanna in 1775. He had four sons -- William (who married Joacquine De Adraid, a Portuguese lady of Maderia and,. with his wife, lived with his mother at Turtle Creek, or Jenkins' Mills, sometime), Morgan, James and Richard -- and two daughters, who died and were buried in Philadelphia. James was married to Sarah Smith, of Philadelphia, and brought her to Northumberland in August, 1789. James, Sr., built the stone mill in 1779. James Sr. died intestate, leaving a widow, Phoebe, who died in 1802. James and Morgan died intestate, Morgan without issue; and on the 1st of April, 1794, James, Jr., and Richard made petition of the estate descending lineally from their father and collaterally from their brother Morgan, and James, Jr., obtained four tracts about the mouth of Turtle Creek, containing five hundred and fifty nine and a half acres, which Morgan had in his lifetime bought of John Aurand, an island on the West Branch opposite the lands which James Jenkins had purchased of John London, who had bought it of John Penn, Jr. and John Penn by deed on the 14th of May, 1785. James Jenkins associated himself with John Mason, of Blue Hill fame, keeping store first at Northumberland, then removing it to Jenkins' Mills. The mill was originally built of stone, and in time of Indian trouble used as a fort, to which place the families in the neighborhood resorted in times of danger. On one occasion, when the Indians were approaching, Mrs. Phoebe Jenkins lay very ill, at Turtle Creek, of typhus fever; a bedstead with curtains was set up on a riverboat and Mrs. .Jenkins was carried to it in blankets, in which she was taken to Middletown; the boat kept the middle of the river and the Indians shot arrows through the curtains from the shores. A tract on Limestone Run, two hundred acres, purchased of David Kenedy, and the tract in Dry Valley, in Warrantee name of James Jenkins, just west of Sneagon three hundred and seventy-six acres, of the date of October 26, 1785. James died suddenly of pleurisy February 5, 1803, at the age of forty years. James, Sr., had built the brick house now occupied by William Elliot in Northumberland, and when James, Jr., brought his wife there in a carriage from Philadelphia the servant, when he opened the door of the carriage, said, “This is the first house we have seen since we left Philadelphia.”
James Jenkins left children. . . Thomas, who died in South America; Sarah, married to Ephraim Shannon, whose daughter married Colonel Alfred Kneass, and is deceased, and her only daughter married to A. O. Van Alen of Northumberland, and she died August 2, 1882, who left a son, Alfred Jenkins Van Alen, who died on August 23, 1882; Elizabeth, married Thomas P. Bonham, and died in Illinois; Mary, died September 26, 1881, at the age of ninety years; and Miss Harriet still lives at Northumberland (1886), at the age of eighty-seven years, in the possession of all her faculties and unimpaired memory. The mill was rebuilt by Colonel Kneass in 1853-54; again remodeled a roller mill in 1882 - 83; and again remodeled by A. O. Van Alen in 1884-85; and is now being operated by the Turtle Creek Milling Company, formed August 12, 1884. The firm is composed of the following gentlemen: A. O. Van Alen, Wm. B. Waples, of Northumberland, and J. W. Zeller, of Lewisburgh, who is general manager.

Contributed by Lela Mae (Mrs. A. M.) MORRIS, (*** address deleted ***), who writes, “I am enclosing a few tidbits that I have accumulated in doing research on my JINKENS family. Maybe they will enrich someone a bit, by being a key to another closed door. Do hope so...I surely enjoyed the first issue and anxiously await the second...Received a most interesting letter from Helen KYMMONS...yesterday. So I feel that you have been of great help already.”

WILLIAM HARRISON JENKINS was Jeanne’s great grandfather. He was born 4 October 1832, near Hudson, Preston Co, VA (now WV). He was a farmer. On the right (above) is a page from Company H Descriptive Book. It gives his age, his description, and date of enlistment. He was captured at Harper's Ferry, 15 Sept 1862, and apparently released the same day. (see below)

Admitted to Hospital at _________ where he died __________ 186 __, of _____________.
Paroled at Harper's Ferry, Sept 15, 1862;
reported at Camp Parole, Md., date not given,, 186_. Sent to Alex. Va. Nov - 62 .
(continued on page 39)
(continued from page 38)
OF THOMAS JENKINS,
January 25, 1865
I have the honor very respectfully to request leave to
visite my home in Preston County W. Va. for the period
of twelve (12) days for the purpose of attending to my
business which requires my immediate personal attention .
I have been in the
service three years and three months
your obt servt.
W. H. Jenkins
2nd Lt. Co H,
(continued from page 39)
Apparently William did not get his leave of absence and the need
to see his family was great. Frances writes, "Uncle Mack JENKINS (Grandfather’s
oldest son) told me that he remembered Grandfather corning home AWOL to
see Grandmother and his children.
William was discharged 12 April 1865. Frances writes, “Grandfather
returned home broken in health. After the war. . . . he was
able to do very little gainful work.”
(In order to save space, portions of all these records have been
"....until he died, I then applied to Dr. J. C. Shepherd from whom I received medicine for some time. at last he told me he did not think he or any other Doctor could make me sound and that the best thing I could do was to take good care of myself and not expose myself, Shortly after he died, I have..."
William was pensioned 3 March 1883 (payments to begin 13 Apr 1865), and received $4.00 per month. In 1898 he made further affidavit, showing his wife and children:
First. Are you married? If so, please state your wife's fail
name and her maiden name.
Second. When, where, and by whom were you married?
Third. What record of marriage exists?
Fourth. Were you previously married? If so, please state the name
of your former wife and the date and place of her death or divorce.
Fifth. Have you any children living? If so, please state their names
and the dates of their birth.
Date of reply, June
4th, 1898 0-8
Again, Frances writes, “Grandfather died when I was merely nine years old. My memory of him is mostly of a sick man, yet I was quite fond of him. Father spoke of him often... about the good counseling and guidance Grandfather gave to his three sons. These teachings undoubtedly helped Father in developing the strength of character and good qualities which he possessed.”

009. JENKINS — SPLANE — ROBERTSON — CULBRETH.
Did you ever get the feeling that your ancestor “hatched?” My Thomas JENKINS,
b ca 1811, Wales, apparently hatched in Washington Co, TX when he m Margaret
SPLANE on 14 Dec 1843. (Margaret was b ca 1825, E. Feliciana Parish, LA).
Thomas had land transactions in Washington Co 1845—47, then showed up in
the 1850 Census, Victoria, Victoria Co, TX. He owned and operated a general
store there, on the town square, where the drive-in bank now sits, Thomas
and Margaret had ch: Thomas Edward (my g grf), b 24 Oct 1845, m Amanda
Partee ROBERTSON; Sarah, b ca 1848, m S. D. CULBRETH; George W., b ca Mar
1850, d young. In 1852, Margaret was a widow, settling store accounts.
Family tradition says Thomas died of the plague while in New York on a
buying trip. I know its Easter and eggs are all the rage, but can't someone
tell me where my Thomas was before he suddenly appeared in Texas in 1843?
