I have looked for my Isreal Jenkins' family for 3 years without getting anywhere. Recently while checking census info on another line I found Isreal in the Warrick county census of 1860 with his mother Amy and his brothers Nicholas and Lawrence.
I knew where to find Lawrence's tombstone info so I checked it. His parents are listed as Joel Jenkins and Amy Lynn. There is a marriage record for them in 1844 in Warrick county. I would love any information on these families if you have it. I'm not sure where Joel was born because he was missing in the census. I know he was still alive for the birth of Sherman in 1867. Amy was born to a Lynn family from Kentucky. Please help if you can. Thanks.
