Hi Al,
The counties kept birth & death records from 1853 to 1896. The parents names as well as the person reported the birth were usually recorded. However, someone had to go to the courthouse to report the birth/death.
Thre are books with the transcriptions for the births from 1891-1895 and I did not find your Jennings there.
I also checked marriages in Wythe Co from 1880-1896 and didn't find any male Jennings getting married in Wythe.
You might try Carroll Co. It's right next door to Wythe and there are many Jennings in Carroll.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful,
Janie
