  of 331

My great-grandfather was George Franklyn Jenness. He was born in 1880, and he died in 1961. He was in the saw mill business, and he left his family in Colleton County, S.C. during the Great Depression. He eventually settled in Wilmington, N.C., and he and his wife - Mary Matilda (Pritchard) Jenness - had 8 children.

Information is incomplete. However, here is all the information I have to date; I have incomplete information in regard to the offspring of these children, and would love to have it, if there's anyone out there who does:
