Searching for information on John H. Jenkins, son of Benjamin Shacklett Jenkins and Elizabeth Tichenor Humphrey, who was born in Meade Co. KY in 1833. He married Janetta Smith there in 1855; she died about 1877, Washington Co. AR, buried Sons Chapel Cemetery. Their known children were Elizabeth E; James Thomas; Eliza J. and Mary A.

After Janetta died, John H. Jenkins md. Martha J (?) in 1881, and they were living near Fayetteville in the 1900 census, and had one daughter, Janette, age 18 still living at home. Martha said they had been married 19 years, and she had borne 6 children, of whom 4 were living. Need Martha's maiden name. And names of their children.

Both of his wives are buried beside John in the Sons Chapel Cemetery. Martha died in 1938. He died in 1902 or 1907.

Have much information on John's parents and grandparents, and will be happy to share. Brothers were Benjmin Fulton Jenkins, Catherine Ann "Kitty" (Jenkins) Smith, and Sarah Jane (Jenkins) Dowell - all from Meade, Ohio and Daviess Counties. KY.
