What month was Asbury born? Is it possible that she was having a
difficult pregnancy and went to Mama's to have the baby. Did not have a
high tech delivery room in those days. May her Mother was ill and need help.

Jennings& her daughter Arrena are living with Elizabeth's parents in 1870 in Lebanon, Union, Laclede, MO. Mary E& Thomas were married in 1866, so I don't understand why they might be living apart. Their son Asbury was born in 1871, so if it's my James, they weren't apart too long. It could simply be that he was helping out his mother at the time of the census and Elizabeth and 2 year old Arrena stayed with her parents. It appears that Arrena died very young and she could have been ill in 1870.

In his census records he states his parents were born in KY. His death was late enough that I should be able to find a death certificate which might list his parents, but so far no luck.

They were married in 1845 in McMinn Co, TN. They migrated to Texas in the 1870's, and are buried in Bells North Cemetery in Grayson Co., TX.

Beatrice Doughtie's wonderful 1000 page book, Documented Notes on Jennings and Allied Families, is in print and available for purchase. The book is hard cover, fully indexed, and all of her research is referenced with sources. Her research was primarily on southern Jennings families.
