My JENKINS connection is William JENKINS b. ca 1823 in VA. He first appears in Audrain Co., MO with wife Sarah HUNT in the1850 census. His family continues to live in and around Audrain Co., at least until the 1930s. He died before the 1910 census, but I think he may be the William JENKINS whose obituary is in the Montgomery (MO) Standard newspaper in 1906. I'm trying to get a copy of this obit now. I'll have more info on this family posted by 1 August 2001.
