Sanford Lafayette Jinkins dod 05 Jan 1948; his wife Dora Ellen dod 05 Sep 1958; son Ashley. I don't know his exact death date, but around 1930. He was working for the railroad and was killed between cars when the engineer was backing up to start the train going. He was probably about 27 years old.

Also, their daughter Pearl [Jinkins] Heldt dod 30 Nov 1979 and her husband Frank Joseph Heldt dod 30 Oct 1981. They are both buried at Levelland and I think all 5 graves are together.

If this is too much to do at one time, just do what you can. The main obit I would like would be for Ashley as I have the least info on him.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give. I have searched all my regular places and can find not even a death certificate for him. I am not sure if his name is Robert Ashley Jinkins or Ashley Lawrence Jinkins.
