Husband's General Notes

"History of Charleston and Kanawha County West Virgina and Representative Citizens"
by W.S. Laidley

Page 454 and 455 (Under section on son, Joseph.)

Thomas Jenkins was born in 1797, in Prince Edward County, Va., and his death occurred in 1883, in Kanawha County, Va. He was educated ill the subscription schools and was a mail of fine natural talent. He learned the blacksmith's trade, which he followed until 1842, when he moved with his family to Kanawha County, where he purchased 330 acres of wooded land. The remainder of his active life was devoted more or less to the clearing and cultivating of his land and he became an extensive and successful farmer for his day and surroundings. He was never a politician in the strict sense of the term, but cast his vote in early days with the Whig party. He was widely known for his many sterling qualities. Hospitality to strangers he made a duty, and many a weary traveler found welcome and refreshment at his fireside. He married Martha B. Fore, who was born in 1808, also in Prince Edward County, and died in Kanawha County, W. Va., in 1881. Both she and husband were laid to rest in a private cemetery on their own land. They were members of the Methodist Episcopal church and all their lives were consistent Christians. Before coming to Kanawha County they had the following children born to them: William H., John R., Martha Susan, Robert T., Mary A. B., Joseph S., Catherine B., Martha J. and L. R. After settling in Kanawha County, three more children were added to the family: America Virginia, Plina Annettie and G. W.

"History of Charleston and Kanawha County West Virgina and Representative Citizens"
by W.S. Laidley

Page 454 and 455

REV. JOSEPH S. JENKINS, minister of the Methodist Episcopal church, now stationed at Malden, Kanawha County, W. Va., and one of the most highly esteemed citizens of this section, resides on a valuable farm of 138 acres, which lies three miles from Charleston in Kanawha County, W. Va. He was born May 1, 1835, in Appomattox County, Va., on the present site of Pamplin City, and is a son of Thomas and Martha B. (Fore) Jenkins.

Thomas Jenkins was born in 1797, in Prince Edward County, Va., and his death occurred in 1883, in Kanawha County, Va. He was educated in the subscription schools and was a man of fine natural talent. He learned the blacksmith's trade, which he followed until 1842, when he moved with his family to Kanawha County, where he purchased 330 acres of wooded land. The remainder of his active life was devoted more or less to the clearing and cultivating of his land and he became an extensive and successful farmer for his day and surroundings. He was never a politician in the strict sense of the term, but cast his vote in early days with the Whig party. He was widely known for his many sterling qualities. Hospitality to strangers he made a duty, and many a weary traveler found welcome and refreshment at his fireside. He married Martha B. Fore, who was born in 1808, also in Prince Edward County, and died in Kanawha County, W. Va., in 1881. Both she and husband were laid to rest in a private cemetery on their own land. They were members of the Methodist Episcopal church and all their lives were consistent Christians. Before coming to Kanawha County they had the following children born to them: William H., John R., Martha Susan, Robert T., Mary A. B., Joseph S., Catherine B., Martha J. and L. R. After settling in Kanawha County, three more children were added to the family: America Virginia, Plina Annettie and G. W.

Joseph S. Jenkins was seven years old when the family moved to West Virginia, and was mainly educated in the local schools and later at Gallipolis, Ohio. where he was under the instruction of Professor Siears for three years. In 1859 he became a minister in the Methodist Episcopal church and has been in active service in the ministry ever since, his labors being mainly confined to West Virginia, but preached some in Kentucky and Ohio. Few men are better known in the section where he labored in the ministry, and surely none are more highly respected, if preaching of funerals and solemnization of matrimony are all indication of respect and appreciation.

In 1857 Mr. Jenkins was married first to Sarah A. Humphrey, who was born in Kanawha County, a daughter of Samuel H. and Elizabeth Humphrey of Union District. She died in 1887 and her burial was in the family cemetery. Three children survived her, namely: Leonidas L., who is a shareholder in the 20th Street Bank of Huntington, W. Va., and now is a resident and merchant at Ashland, Ky.; Laura V. who was much beloved teacher in Union District, and died at the age of twenty-three years; and Leodora B., who became the wife of Samuel L. Farlley. They had one child, Anna Laura, who died when aged seventeen months and Mrs. Farlley died shortly afterward. Mr. Jenkins was married secondly to Mrs. Mary Morgan, who was born in Kanawha County and died in 1906, at Charleston. Mr. Jenkins' third marriage was to Mrs. Emily C. (Shirkey) Guthrie, who was the widow of John Guthrie. Mr. Jenkins is a pronounced Prohibitionist in politics. Owing to a defect in his hearing he took a Superanuate relation in the West Virginia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1900, but has filled four pastoral charges since that relation, and is now pastor at Malden, building a new brick church. He is active and in the possession of good health, preaches from two to three sermons per week, and attends to his pastoral labors.
