Looking for info on parentage of James JENKINSs, b. ca. 1740. He married Rebecca BOOKER, widow of Samuel OVERTON, in 1764 in Amelia Co. There was a John JENKINS there in 1737, and a related EDWARD Jenkins died there in 1786, but I have no other clues on where to look. There is a possibility that my James JENKINS was related to Lewis JENKINS (b. ca. 1690) and wife Mary PARKER from Henrico, Halifax and Goochland Co's due to family relations that also end up in Amelia Co. Any ideas where my Jenkins line came from before Amelia co? Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
