In Reply to: Ohio Vets War of 1812 - Jenkins by Gail Watts Jenkins of 6346

Eden/Edwin, Russell, and Jesse Jenkins were brothers, sons of Thomas Jenkins and Nellie Sisk of Culpeper Co, VA. Their line has been extensively researched by Richard Pence, some of whose credentials and work are available on the web. These three brothers were also brothers of my 3ggf Philip Jenkins, who migrated to Cocke Co, TN with other members of the Sisk family about the time Thomas and the other children migrated to Champaign Co, OH.

They are identified in the estate records of Thomas in Ohio. I have this courtesy of Charles Perdue, an anthropologist at U.VA, who has done thorough research in the families removed from the area that is now the Shenendoah National Park :

Champaign County Ohio Genealogical Soc. Newsletter, Vol. 5, No. 3, Summer 1989
Champaign County, Court of Common Pleas, August Term 1831, Thursday, 5 January 1831
Russel Jenkins vs Elijah Jenkins; Philip Jenkins; Bryant Moody & Phebe Moody, his wife; John Moody and Lucy Moody, his wife; Joel Jenkins; Thomas Jenkins; Edwin Jenkins; Jesse Jenkins; Emanuel Kite & Eleanor, his wife; Frederick Pence & Milly Pence, his wife; Milly Maggert; Jesse Maggart; Solomon Maggert; Moses Maggart & Andrew Maggart; heirs of Polly Maggart, late Polly Jenkins; & the unknown heirs of Dicy Price, late Dicy Jenkins. Russel was suing for 1/13th of the 60 acres, located on the north side of SE1/4, section 28, township 4, range 11 (Mad River Township), which was owned by Thomas Jenkins, deceased, whose widow was Susannah Jenkins.

From a typescript by Richard Pence, I have taken these excerpts you might find useful:

There is more if you're interested.
