INTRODUCTION Genealogical research is much like eating peanuts: the more you consume, the more you want. Similarly, it is often said of any learning: "the more you learn, the less you know. "In the case of exhuming the past, the desire to know "who I am and where did I come from” approaches obsession. The researchers of this document found this to be truer than true! Be that as it may, it has been a thrill to search for and find descendants of this clan. It should be stated at the outset that a margin of error exists in conducting such a human study. The larger percentage of the material contained herein is documentable with family ties based on recorded facts. But -- there are times when a logical deduction of a relationship is the only means available to continue. For example: if a family has an older son 18 years of age who appears on a given Census, and he doesn't appear on the next Census as part of that household, but he does appear on the same Census as the head of a household; and living next door; and of an age exactly 10 years older; then it is reasonably certain that he and his spouse and any children named are of the same family. If there is anthing you wish corrected or expanded, provide the necessary information, pictures, etc... Finally: this is a lengthy document, so we are providing each family head with one (1) copy. Therefore, we plead with you to have copies made very soon and circulate them within your immediate and extended family. DESCENDANTS OF DANIEL LEWIS JENKINS OF NORTH CAROLINA (1760-1845) Initially a point of clarification must be made so that the reader of this genealogy is assured that the research included herein bears out the true facts and the true identity of Lewis Jenkins of Edgecombe, North Carolina and Meriwether County, Georgia. Historical documents indicate and support the existence of two Lewis Jenkins -- one residing in the Onslow County, North Carolina area; the other residing originally in Edgecombe County, North Carolina area -- both born in the year 1760.[39] [79] There appears to be some confusion concerning the Revolutionary War records of these two men, but other than that the movement of these two North Carolinians and their families to separate areas of Georgia is quite clear and well documented. Over a period of some fifty-odd years, the Lewis Jenkins of Onslow County, N. C. migrated, with his family, to Greene and Washington Counties, Georgia.[40] The Lewis Jenkins of Edgecombe County N. C. , apparently migrated to Rowan County, N. C., in 1796 [6] and then to Gwinnett County, Georgia, where he received land from the Cherokee Land Lottery in 1827. He eventually settled in Meriwether County, Georgia.[50] [77] Further, the Onslow Lewis is buried in Greene County, Ga. [40]; the Edgecombe Lewis is buried in Meriwether County, Ga.[37] It is well-documented that the Onslow Lewis Jenkins, with wife Annie Jones, had children: Uriah, Hezikiah, Drury, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Esther, and Patty.[52] The Edgecombe Lewis Jenkins, with wife Jemima (possibly Jones) , had children William, David , John, Lewis, Kinchean, Allen, Daniel, Rebecca, Nancy, and Susanna.[6] [43] Only one of the children, Kinchean Jenkins, remained in Gwinnett County, Ga., and raised a large family. The other children settled in both Meriwether and adjoining Harris County. Deeds, census rolls, Wills, marriage, birth and death records (some contained in family Bibles), all support the separate existence and the areas of migration of these two men and their families. A major point of difference lies within the Pension Records of these two men that exist within the National Archives.[79] Unfortunately it appears that various individuals seeking DAR membership have mistakenly used the pension record of Lewis Jenkins from Edgecombe County, North Carolina to support the Revolutionary War record and application for pension of Lewis Jenkins of Onslow County, North Carolina. A search of the records shows conclusively that Lewis Jenkins of Edgecombe was mustered into the Continental service for a term of three years in Wake County, North Carolina. His affidavit, recorded in Gwinnett County , Georgia Inferior Court in 1833 states that fact.[79] The affidavit of Lewis Jenkins of Onslow, taken in Court in Washington County, Georgia, states that he entered service first as a draftee in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and later as a volunteer in Hillsborough, North Carolina. More important to the point under discussion is the documentation that Lewis Jenkins from Edgecombe County, N. C., applied for and received a Revolutionary War Pension under Pension Record #S31771 while living in Gwinnett County, Ga. in 1832. Though the Lewis Jenkins from Onslow County, N. C. appeared to be a true patriot with an acceptable Revolutionary War service record, his application for pension was rejected under Pension Record #R5772.[79] It is quite possible (from inferences found in some of the literature) that he may have received pension approval at a later date, but these researchers have not been able to document that fact. THE FAMILY 1.0 -- Daniel Lewis Jenkins, b. 1760; d. 11/18/1845; m. Jemima _______, b. 2/12/1779; d. 10/5/1843 Issue: 10 children (all born in North Carolina) [6] [43] 1.1 -- William (Billy) Jenkins, b. 2/3/1802; d. 2/12/1878 1.2 -- David Jenkins, b. 11/3/1804; d. 1870 1.3 -- John Jenkins, b. 7/1/1806; d. 2/6/1832 1.4 -- Nancy Jenkins, b. 2/7/1807; d. 3/8/1850 1.5 -- Lewis Jenkins, b. 9/1/1808; d. 1/11/1867 1.6 -- Kinchean Jenkins, b. 4/29/1810; d. 9/1/1883 1.7 -- Susanna Jenkins, b.2/11/1812; d. 3/14/1875 1.8 -- Rebecca Jenkins, b. 5/15/1813; d. 1840 1.9 -- Allen Jenkins, b. 6/21/1815; d. 2/21/1895 1.10 - Daniel Jenkins, b. 11/20/1816; d. 9/1/1879 Apparently, Lewis Jenkins initially migrated from Edgecombe County, North Carolina to Rowan County, N. C. around 1795; thence to Gwinnett County, Ga. during the early 1820s. While in Gwinnett the family had resided in the Rockbridge and Sweetwater districts (now Lawrenceville and Duluth, Ga.);[41] however, Lewis, his wife Jemima, and all ten of their children were born in North Carolina. His name appears on the Roster of North Carolina soldiers participating in the American Revolution, and he is listed as receiving Bounty Land in “the Cumberland” on Warrant #3890, deeding 374 Acres “to self”. This land was later transferred to a Lazarus Whitehead [79] who, in turn, sold land in Rowan County, NC to Lewis in the year 1796. Prior to his family’s entry into Georgia, Lewis Jenkins sold his land in Rowan County in the year 1824.[83] Lewis’ last child, Daniel, was born in 1816; thus, it was some time after that date that the family moved into Georgia. The first record of their presence in Gwinnett County, Ga. is the appearance of the names of Lewis, his wife and children (with the exception of William , John and a younger Lewis) on an early membership roll in 1833 of the Friendship Baptist Church at Five Forks, just outside Lawrenceville, Ga.[47] At about this same time the names of the parents, Lewis and Jemima, and the names of all ten(10) children appear in the Minutes of the Sweetwater Primitive Baptist Church of Duluth, GA. The Friendship and Sweetwater Baptist Churches were both part of the Yellow River Baptist Church Association. Billy, their first child, married in 1825 and had his first child in 1828. That child, James M. Jenkins, was listed on the Census rolls as being born in Georgia. Thus, the family had migrated to Georgia before that date. At that time, after the Cherokee Land Lottery of 1827, Lewis was given land in Gwinnett County (District 6, Section 36, Lot #125). [94] (Mention should be made at this point that John had passed away in 1832; logically, his name would not appear on either a Church roll or a Census). Deed books indicate that Lewis had purchased land in Troup County, Ga. in the area that later became Meriwether County; that land being Lot #13, 7th District. The purchase was made in the year 1833.[79] Obviously, Lewis had continued his migration down into Meriwether at that time, Evidently, he had preceded his family to that area of Georgia as evidenced by Church records and land deeds of that County. In the Census of 1840, Lewis Jenkins, the “Well Spring” of this genealogy, appears in Meriwether County, Ga.[8] Also, deed books of that County, dated September 1841, contain a transfer of “that tract of land on which I live” by Lewis Jenkins to his son, Daniel, effective upon his and Jemima’s death. This was Lot #13, District 7. There is little doubt that Lewis and his wife, Jemima, are buried on the land that once was part of his farm in Meriwether County, Ga.. It is believed that the burial site may be found in the Marchum-Brooks family plot some 4.1 miles North of Greenville, Ga. just at the side of State Road #100. The graves are unmarked; however, a search of the former Lewis Jenkins farm indicates no other probable site since Lewis retained “one Rod Square” for a gravesite when the land was sold to Hezikiah Wimbish in 1845. Daniel made this land sale after his father’s death since Lewis had transferred the family house and land to Daniel for “love and affection” and to be effective upon Jemima’s death. The graves, topped with red brick, are visible, but overgrown with ground cover and disturbed by the growth of a large tree. This gravesite was photographed by these researchers December, 1994.[73] THE LINEAGE 1.1.0 -- William (Billy Jenkins), b. 2/3/1802 in Rowan County N.

Gwinnett County, Ga.; d._____; Of all Kinchean Jenkins’ children, none have been as diffcult to trace and interpret as John R.. The records clearly show that he appears with the family in Gwinnett County in all early Census rolls up and into 1870. At that time he was living with his parents, Kinchean and Lucetta Jenkins. His name and signature are on Kinchean’s Will, 1883; on the Probate papers, 1885; and, on the Property Disposition documents in 1887. He is listed in the membership of Sweetwater Primitive Baptist Churcvh, Duluth, Ga.,as having joined in 1876. Further, he appears in the Church Minutes as being Excluded from the Church for “unlawful separation “ from his wife. Though there seems to be confusing and conflicting records as to his marriage, it is quite certain (based on Arnold family records, Gwinnett County Marriag Book records, the Kinchean Jenkins Family Bible, and the George Jenkins personal letter of 1931), that John R. did, in fact, wed Nancy Mahalie Arnold on Oct. 8, 1871. The Kinchean Jenkins Family Bible only addresses John R.s wife a “N.M.”, and at one pont refers to her as “Narcissus”(possibly an error in identifiction since Allen S. Jenkins married Narcissus Jones). John R.’s children (with NM) are listed as Rosalie, Estelle and Lucetta; however, Nancy Arnold Jenkins is listed as a “widow” in the Census of 1880, living with a daughter, Mary --age 7 years. No other children are listed on that Census. The 1880 date is one year after John R. and Nancy had apparently called things off. Arnold family records indicate that Nancy re-married a Charles Nash and moved to Texas She had four children with Nash, but the child, Mary, (who did not appear in Kinchean’s Bible) nor any of the other children who did appear in that Bible record, appear again in Nash family records. Oddly enough, John D. Arnold, Nancy’s father, made his Will (1897) long after John R. and Nancy had parted, and long after she and Nash had married and moved to Texas but still referred to her in the Will as the wife of John R. Jenkins even at that late date. So, documentation tells us that: 1. Nancy Arnold and John R. Jenkins married in 1871 and separated in 1879 2. they apparently had at least 3 surviving children together 3. the child, Mary,(same age as Rosalie) was with Nancy in 1880 --one year after their separation 4. though Nancy called herself a “widow” in1880, John R. Jenkins was not dead at that time 5. On 3/12/1881 Nancy M.Jenkins won a judgement against John R. Jenkins in Gwinnett County Court. This apparently was a divorce proceeding since the only costs involved were those of the Court 6. Nancy then married Charles Nash 9/29/1881 and moved to Texas; this only two years after separating from John R. Jenkins. They had 6 children; five of whom were born in Texas 7. John R. is in his father’s Will (1883); in the Probate papers (1885); in the Property Disposition papers (1887); and, in the Sweetwater Church Minutes (1890) Fulton County, Ga. Estate Records, Book “D”, p. 701, lists a John R. Jenkins as having resided on Irwin St. in Atlanta, Ga.. This is within the same square block at Howell St. where his brother, Alfred S. Jenkins lived.(Alfred probably had his mother, Lucetta with him at that time) The proximity of a John R. Jenkins to Alfred S. is almost conclusive proof (or at least, assumptive) of John R.’s prescence in Atlanta at that time. The real mystery of this family lies in the continued absence of the name of Mary, who appeared in the 1880 Gwinnett Census with Nancy Jenkins, and the continued absence of the names of the three surviving children referenced in Kinchean’s Bible.(all of this after John and Nancy’s separatioin and after Nancy married Nash and moved to Texas where she had four more children with Charles Nash). It is also a mystery as to WHY Nancy was listed as “Widow” unless the divorce had not been recognized by the Church at that time, making marriage to Nash difficult. When they moved to Texas they had already had one child, born in 1882. These researchers will continue to investigate the John R. Jenkins family.

William David John Nancy Lewis Kinchean Susanna Rebecca Allen There have been inferences that the first Daniel Lewis Jenkins was born in 1735. Then a generation later, a Daniel Lewis Jenkins was born in 1760 (this Lewis is the focal point of this genealogy). In the 1930’s family reunions were held wherein descendants of Daniel Lewis Jenkins, Jr.were present.At just such a reunion held at Grant Park Atlanta, Ga., Lewis Jenkins was described as having been born in 1735 -- obviously this was the Senior Lewis.The news clipping shown below addresses that Reunion.(This news clipping is from the Atlanta Journal, published in Atlanta, Ga. Dated 8/6/1932 and may be found in the Alabama Archives, Montgomery, Ala.) Jenkins Family Holds Reunion at Grant Park 8/6/32 --The Atlanta Journal The annual reunion of the descendants of Daniel Jenkins, who was born in Edgecombe County, North Carolina in February, 1835, was held at Grant Park, Atlanta, Ga., July 2, 1933, with about one hundred present. Of the four sons of Daniel Jenkins' descendants, three were present. Atlanta was well represented by several of the Jenkins family. Macon, LaGrange,Warm Springs, Chipley, Columbus, Opelika, Ala., Tallahassee, Fla., Dacula, Ga., Shady Dale, Ga., and East Point were also represented. Lunch was served at the noon hour. Afterwards a business session was held. The same officers being elected to serve another year. Several of the Jenkins' in-laws made short talks. The meeting for next year will be held at Bethany Church, about one mile from Chipley, Ga.Harris County , this being the church where the family had its membership. There they helped build the house and lived in the community nearby. It was suggested that next year all people by the name of Jenkins, or who are related to the Jenkins family, be invited to attend the reunion thereby getting more of the descendants of Daniel Jenkins together Various land transactions and Wills of many of the Jenkins families of the 18th Century give clues as to their relationships with other families. Unfortunately, it seems that even though Lewis Jenkins can be traced through land deals, there is little, or no, conclusive evidence as to either his parents or his siblings. It is highly possible that Lewis came from a Lewis, Sr., born in 1735; however, it is just as possible that Lewis came from a John(possibly middle name Lewis) Jenkins, Sr., born in 1720 or thereabouts. These researchers are in possession of a land transaction, dated 2/1/1763, in which a “Jenkins, Sr.” Deeds land over to a “Jenkins, Jr.”. In the body of the Deed , Jenkins, Sr. is referenced throughout as “John Jenkins, Sr. While the Jenkins, Jr. is referenced as “the said Lewis Jenkins”.( Book “K”, p.3, Bertie County, N. C.) It may be that the reference is simply an older person to a younger one; however this has not seemed to be the case in any other legal document that has been examined in the researching of this genealogy. Therefore, the inference is that: this Lewis is a John Lewis Jenkins and may well have been the Lewis Jenkins who fathered Daniel Lewis Jenkins in 1760. It is realized that this may well be a false interpretation, but it gives food for thought in trying to pin down the predecessors of Lewis Jenkins of North Carolina and Georgia. -- the tap root of our study. In an effort to give the reader some clue as to the “land path” that Lewis took in his migration, the land transactions presented below define his participation, or the participation of those who were known to be friends or neighbors: 1. Evidence is strong that Lewis Jenkins was a descendant of the Elizabeth County, Va. Jenkins family.The family names of that family are found throughout Lewis’ immediate and extended family’s children. 2. John Jenkins, Sr. (possibly John Lewis Jenkins, Sr.) and Lewis Jenkins had connections and dealings with the Whitehead family of Edgecombe County, NC.. As presented earlier (p.2-3), Lewis was a Revolutionary War soldier (1776-79) 4. Lewis received Bounty Land “in the Cumberland” (Revolution) which he deeded to Lazarus Whitehead (the younger) 5. Lazarus Whitehead moved to Rowan County (originally that part that came to be in Iredell County; became pastor of a Church and eventually sold 162 acres of land to Lewis Jenkins in 1796) That land was at the confluence of Dutchman’s Creek and the Yadkin River -- just above Salisbury N. C. . 6. A John and a Jessie Jenkins, both obviously sons of a John, Sr, had been deeded land by their father in 1765 and 1766. That land was in the same general area whereLewis had held acreage. 7. In 1801, a Jessie Jenkins bought land on Dutchman’s Creek nearby Lewis Jenkins 8. Lewis Jenkins sold his Rowan County land in 1824 just prior to leaving for Georgia 9. In 1827 the same Lewis Jenkins received Cherokee Land Lottery acreage in Gwinnett County, Ga. 10. Lewis Jenkins, now of Gwinnett , applied for and received a Revolutionary War Pension (1832) 11. That same Lewis Jenkins(#10 above) , of Gwinnett County, Ga., purchased land lot #13 in the 7th District of Meriwether County, Ga.. in the year 1833. Eight years later, in 1841, he deeded the same land to his son, Daniel, for “love and affection”, and $5.00, citing the care Daniel had given his father and mother. 12. Also , in 1841, Daniel sold the north half of the Lewis farm to his brother Lewis, and four tears later (1845) the balance of the homeplace was sold to a Wimbish with the stipulation that”one rod square” would be reserved as the burial place for Lewis and Jemima. Again, the above chronicle of land transactions is presented to provide the reader with some idea of the path of Lewis Jenkins from his Revolutionary War enlistment in Wake County, N. C. in 1776 (age 16) to his burial in Meriwether County, Ga.in 1845. Because of his Pension Application in Gwinnett County, Ga. in 1832, we are assured that Lewis Jenkins is , in fact, the forebearer from whom we sprung. The difficulty lies in deter- mining exactly where he was born and who his parents were The most accurate assumption that we can make is that he was born either in Bertie or Wake County, N. C.. in the year 1760. SOURCES 1. Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pensions File, p. 1830 2 . History of Harris County:1827-1961, 1st and 2nd EditionsBarfield, Columbus Office Supply, Columbus, Ga. 3.

Then you've got a new clue and you're off to the races! These researchers had no knowledge of root relationships in Texas when they began this work, when, in fact, there is a "whole passel" of Jenkins from Daniel Lewis Jenkins of North Carolina all over that State; and Alabama; and Arkansas; and Lord knows where else. It is the hope of the researchers that all living Jenkins receiving and reading this document will appreciate the work and love that has gone into the effort, and that those now living in the present and those who are yet to be born will appreciate their roots. It is also hoped that no future Daniel Lewis Jenkins family researchers will have to dig as deeply as did the authors of this document. It behooves these researchers to stress the point that some family groups are more inclusive and displayed with more biographical information than others; i. e., treated in greater depth . Where information has been found or provided by the living Jenkins members, the facts are presented. If the reader desires more information to be included in the next draft of this document , then so inform us; communicate and it shall be done! This body of genealogical material has been assembled specifically for the family, so let us know if you know more than you have told us or more than we have found. To communicate to us in this area, let us know the numerical station thavolutionary War (probably Cumberland County, NC) which he deeded, land Creek plus Baptist Church records of that county,and that this is the family whom we have tracedLewis Factually, we know he resided with his family in Gwinnett and Meriwether Counties,GA, after migrating from Rowan County, NC, and that he died in Meriwether, 10/5/1843..
