BATTLE HYMN OF THE JENKINS
(tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic)

The Ancient Clan of Jenkins raised their standards to the sky;
They held their name in honor and their aims were ever high;
They always did their duty and were not afraid to die.
The clan goes marching on!

Chorus:
Glory to the tribe of Jenkins;
Virile, worthy, brave and loyal!
Let us sing "Perge sed Cau-te!"
The clan goes marching on!

Mae-narch, Richard, John and Seth were fathers of our clan;
Posterity of Benjamin never ran.
Joseph was quite virile, Thomas was a sturdy man.
The clan goes marching on!

Our fathers dwelt in England, Scotland, Ireland and in Wales;
Where English tongue is spoken now the Jenkins name prevails.
How could the nations but advance when Jenkins never fails!
The clan goes marching on!

Richard was in Parliament -- he was among the peers;
Thomas was High Sheriff -- of his foes he had no fears;
Henry Jenkins lived a hundred nine and sixty years.
The clan goes marching on!

John was guide to Washington and with him at Yorktown;
With famous men of Georgia, Charlie's name is written down;
Albert was in Congress and, in Dixie, of renown.
The clan goes marching on!

The Jenkins Clan is mighty with a hundred thousand strong;
In Seventy-six, four hundred Jenkins fought to right a wrong.
Seven towns bear Jenkins name, Sure, let us sing that song --
The clan goes marching on!

When danger threatened country or a battle to be one,
Or righteous causes need defenders or work to be done, 
Brave Jenkins were right there, and never did a Jenkins run.
The clan goes marching on!

The Jenkins sons have courage any task or foe to face;
The Jenkins girls are lovely with their beauty, charm, and grace;
The Jenkins leaven is a blessing to the human race.
The clan goes marching on!

Getting to Know you...
Charlotte Magee Tucker... 
(Charlotte is a descendant of THOMAS & MARGARET SPLANE JENKINS)
I am 41 years old, have a fabulous husband, and we have two great kids; Mike is 22 and Shannon, our daughter, is 12.  Jerry has an insurance agency and specializes in insuring trucks. He spends spare time working out all his frustrations on the golf course. Unfortunately, this has been the coldest, wettest winter we’ve experienced since moving to the Houston area from Dallas eleven years ago. So, he’s delighted spring has arrived. Mike is still living at home while working on his Master’s degree in Civil Engineering at Rice University. His interests are varied, but mostly concentrated on learning and teaching the Bible. Shannon is a lover of the out-of-doors and spends most of her leisure time there. Her goals in life alternate between being a nurse or a veterinarian! 
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!

JAMES JENKINS FAMILY BIOGRAPHY
Reprinted from HISTORY OF SUSQUEHANNA & JUNIATA VALLEYS (PA), Everts, Peck & Richards, 1886

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.”      

See Information Wanted for Mrs JENKINS' query.

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.

ANDERSON   --   OWEN   --   BEALL
by Grant Anderson
Record of Benjamin JENKINS and Elizabeth BRANTLEY JENKINS

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.”

Benjamin Jenkins, father of Elizabeth Jenkins Beall was born about the year 1745; married Elizabeth Brantley, who was born about the year 1750. There were nine children born to them:
1. Priscilla Jenkins, married Elisha Neal.
2. John Jenkins
3. Arthur Jenkins, married, wife's name unknown.
4. Fiveash Jenkins
5. Allen Jenkins, married, wife's name unknown.
6. Wiley Jenkins.
7. Lucy Jenkins married a Mr. Smith.
8 Elizabeth Jenkins married Robert Beall
9, Mary Jenkins, married Jesse Paige.

There were born to Arthur Jenkins and wife, seven children:
1. Elizabeth Jenkins married James Lowe.
2. Lucy Jenkins.
3. Mary Jenkins.
4. Sarah Jenkins.
5. Benjamin Jenkins.
6. Mordecai Jenkins married Mrs. Martha Beall, nee Jones.
7. Jesse Jenkins.

Davis Jenkins, son of Allen Jenkins and wife, came from near Pearl River, about Jackson, Mississippi, where his father and uncle settled, and married Susan Gardner, sister to John and Sterling Gardner, living near Warrenton, Georgia.

This book is in the possession of Juanita Massingill of Angleton, Texas, and much of it has been lost. These two pages were numbered 150 and 151.

WILLIAM HARRISON JENKINS
(continued from page 38)
Mrs. Frances QUINN is William’s granddaughter (and Jeanne’s Aunt). In Frances’ book,
A HISTORY OF SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS AND RELATED FAMILIES 
OF THOMAS JENKINS,
she writes, "In August, 1863, at Monrovia, Maryland, he (William) had typhoid fever accompanied with severe diarrhea; in November he suffered other illnesses which gave him much distress when drilling, followed by heart trouble. He was treated by Drs. BARBOUR and McKEE at Annapolis, Maryland Navy Yard Hospital in August and Sept., 1864.   William wrote the following letter from Buckhannon, WVa, 25 January 1865;
                   January 25, 1865
Capt. 
   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
and have not had but one leave of absence during that
period. these will remain with the company and 
commissioned officers. 

very Respectfully 
your obt servt.

3rd Regiment

WILLIAM HARRISON JENKINS
(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.
. . . Some neighbors came and told him that officers were coming looking for him. He slipped out and across the fields, thereby short-cutting his way, and was safely back with his Company when the officers returned. Then, with a good chuckle, Uncle Mack said, ‘John O. might never have been born had it not been for that AWOL visit.’ “(John O. was Frances’ father.)

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 the years following, William was treated for his physical disabilities by three doctors. Two died and one moved to New Mexico, so when William applied for a pension in 1882, he had to make the following affidavit concerning his broken health.

(In order to save space, portions of all these records have been deleted.)
"....Says I cannot prove my health before I went into the Army.  I never had any necessity to take medicine from any Doctor.  I never was confined to my bed an hour in my life until I had the fever alledged, in the U. S. Service 
by being exposed to the hardships of a soldier's life.  I become a broken down man and from present indications, always will be...."

"....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:

 Date of reply,  June 4th, 1898 0-8       5801b750ml-96
Upon his death, 1 July 1909, his widow, Louisa Jane (FAULKENSTINE), applied for pension. That he was not in the military or naval service the United States otherwise as stated above. That she was married under the name of 
Louisa J. Faulkensteineto said soldier at  Valley Point, Preston Co. W. Va.  on the 12  day of October,  1854, by Rev. McCarty, M.E.; that there was no legal barrier to the marriage; that she had Not been previously married; that the soldier had  Not been previously married;

and that neither she nor said soldier married otherwise than as stated above. 
That the said soldier died  July 1, 1909, at  about six o'clock;that she was not divorced from him, and that she has not remarried since his death.

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.”

THOMAS  JENKINS OF ARKANSAS
submitted by Marolyn Faith MARSHALL, ***address deleted***, Carthage, Arkansas 71725 This is a continuation of the family begun with the Bible Record,      Vol. I, No. 1. p 13.

**Site Editor's Note:  To repeat.... The surname Mrs Marshall has listed as 'Ha Pon' is incorrect.  The surname should be HESSON.  (Probably a misinterpretation of the old style of writing the letter "S".  You will also see this family associated with the Jenkins Ferry later in The Jubilee.

THOMAS JENKINS married (2) Mahaly BOWEN, 30 June, 1839, Saline Co, AR, Both lawful age. Thomas and Mahaly were of the Baptist Society religion.
NOTE: the JENKINS Bible (page 13) states Nancy JENKINS was b 14 Oct 1814 & d 18 Apr 1814.  I think there was an error in the entries and the dates are backwards.

Since then I have done a bit more searching...

There is & town called Gladehill in Franklin County, VA. It is west of Rocky Mount, the County seat, and was listed in Lippencott’s 1806 Gazetteer; so it was there in 1850. Margaret, I suggest you search the Franklin Co, VA census and if there's nothing there, we'll try again. And good luck !
Jeanne.

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.

EDITOR'S NOTE
GOOD NEWS, COUSINS!
The old portable has done nobly for yea, these many years. For some time now, however, it has been moaning, groaning, and making all the usual pre-retirement noises. So, beginning with Volume I, Number 3, we'll have bright, sharp, pretty copy typed on our beautiful new typewriter. Maybe it will even inspire the typist !
Many thanks all of you who have shared your Jenkins research material. Keep it coming... it may help someone else, and their material may, in turn, help you.
Russ is home again; and that helped make our Easter a happy one. We hope you and yours had a joyous Easter too!
See you again in three months...
