Karen: I would be interested in John. My John Jenkins was born about
1755, served in the Rev from VA and died in Fayette Co. VA about 1832.

> I am trying to determine the maiden name of the wife of John Jenkins, b. 1805 to Jonas Jenkins (b.1774) and "Polly" Ann Williams Jenkins. Was her name Mary Watkins or Mary Nations? And how many women did Jonas Jenkins (b.1774) have children by? Are Ann "Polly" Williams (wife #1) and Polly (wife #2) the same person? Or is there someone else...perhaps a Mary Polly Brickey. I'm getting mixed messages. I know that he also had 2 mistresses: A Jennie Breck and then her daughter Betsy Breck. Apparently good ole Jonas had a very active libido! Thanks for any help in clearing up the names of his women.
