I don't know if you've gotten any of the info you were looking for or not since it has been 7 years since your post.

Tarpley Jenkins and Mary Luvinia Whittington Jenkins were my GG Grandparents. Their son, William Abner Jenkins, was my Great Grandfather. He married Martha Louella Carroll and their daughter, Pearl Jenkins Brady, was my grandmother.

Tarpley was born in St. Tammany Parish, LA. His parents were William Thomas Jenkins and Evaline Sharp who were also born in St Tammany Parish, LA. William Thomas Jenkins' parents were Abner Jenkins, born in SC, and Mary Ann Bennett who was born in LA. Mary Luvinia Whittington's parents were Elisha Whittington and Lucinda Futch and she was born in Bayou Chicot. Elisha Whittington was born in Marion, SC and Lucinda Futch was born in Amite, MS.

Abner Jenkins' parents were Jack Jenkins, not sure where he was born (VA, NC, or GA) but he died in Madison, MS and Caroline Cooper. I don't have any other info on Caroline.

My Great Aunt Verda Jenkins Ruff had compiled a Jenkins family history book years ago when I was about 10-12 years old. My family did have a copy but I'm not sure where it is.

If you are still interested in any info, let me know and I'll see what else I can find.
