Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Death Date: This database uses 15 Apr 1843. A Memorial and Biographical Record of Iowa notes that Rachel died when her son George Jenkins Maris was six months old. Using an exact interpretation of this age with George's birth date of 17 Jun 1841 gives a death date range for Rachel from 17 Dec 1841 to 16 Jan 1842. [book-memorial-record-of-iowa-v1-1896]

FOLLOWUP

Sarah's parents may have been Michael Jenkins (d. before 1816 in Ohio) and Sara Kinsey (d. before 9 Jun 1845 in Ohio). [research-a-spear-family-history, research-ancestor-chart-of-george-spear]

Her father Michael may have been born about 1760 in Frederick, VA, the son of Jacob Jenkins (b. 7 Dec 1716 in Radnor, Chester County, PA) who married 1749 in Frederick, VA, Elizabeth Rogers (b. ca. 1730 in Gwynedd, Montgomery County, PA).

Her mother Sarah may have been born in 1775 in Buckingham Township, Bucks County, PA. Her father may have been Thomas Kinsey (with sisters Linda, Sarah, Martha, Ann, and Margaret, and uncle Samuel Kinsey). Alternately, her parents may have been George Kinsey (b. 1753 in Buckingham, PA) and Mary Gillingham (b.1755).

Rachel may have been born 4 Nov 1806 in Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, OH.

Michael and Sarah may have had another daughter, Mary Kenzie Jenkins (b. 9 Apr 1808 in Belmont, OH; d 8 Apr 1894 in Oskaloosa, Mahaska, IA) who married 28 Jul 1825 in Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, OH, Clark Terrell (b 28 Nov 1799 in VA).
