I'm looking for the parents of Jane Jenkins. 4 Census say she was born in South Carolina and a death certificate for her daughter says she was born in Habersham SC. One census says she was born in TN. She is found in the 1850 US Census Georgia, Cherokee, Div 15, pg 172, living with her husband James Madison Bruce and next door to Shepherd Jenkins. I can't find the relationship between the two neighbors but thinking they are related.
Here is the notes for the 1850 Census:
1850 US Census, Georgia Cherokee, Div 15, pg 172
Shepherd Jenkins, 75, male Farme,r b Georgia.
Mary Jenkins, 88, female, b Georgia.
Moriah Jenkins, 38, female, b Georgia.
Madison (James Madison) Bruce, 31, male, farmer, 250 real estate, b South Carolina.
Jane Bruce, 35, female, b South Carolina.
Mary E Bruce, 11, female, b Georgia.
Jonah M Bruce, 9, female, b Georgia.
Mahala C(Caroline) Bruce, 7, female, b Georiga.
Harvey M Bruce, 5, male, b Georgia.
William E Bruce, 5, male, b Georgia.
Bud Bruce, 9/12, male, b Georgia.
James Wheeler, 13, male, b North Carolina.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
