Thanks for your reply, Scott. Since my original post in 2004 I evidently placed this particular search on the back burner. I did some additional research this morning in the census pages and OneWorldTree at Ancestry.com, but came to no conclusions. I am related to so many McJunkins who lived in Pickens Co., SC, that I could not accept the idea that I was not somehow related to the Robert McJunkin [b. 15 Nov 1893] in question. By the way, how far back have you proven your McJunkin line?
I thought I would list my connections for you and see if perhaps you might be able to tie your great-grandfather Robert in as a son of one of these families. These are the McJunkins I am descended from: Robert J. McJunkin - [paternal 6th great-grandfather] Margaret Caldwell + Samuel McJunkin - [paternal 5th great-grandfather] Mary Anne Bogan + Joseph Caldwell McJunkin - [paternal 4th great-grandfather] Anne Jane Thomas + Samuel McJunkin - [paternal 3rd great-grandfather] Jemimah Glenn Saunders + Joseph Jefferson McJunkin - [paternal 2nd great-grandfather] Amelia Monroe Cockerham + William Richard Wynne Almedia Sophronia McJunkin [paternal great-grandmother
Since my initial 2004 post, which listed only the four sons, I found the names of all the children between Robert and Essie in the 1930 Liberty, Pickens Co., SC census in which Robert was listed as a widow. Based on the age of their youngest child, Essie passed away between 1928 and 1930. Folger, age 14 R. T. [Robert] age 12 Trene, age 11 William [twin] age 8 Harold [twin] age 8 Lois, age 4 yrs., 11 mos. Edith, age 1 yr., 9 mos. The irony of William and Harold being twins is that their mother was also a twin to her sister, Bessie.
There is a possibility that your line branches off one of the families mentioned above. If you should find that to be the case, then please let me know so I can update my tree. Thanks for offering your assistance. W. J. Wynn
