Off the direct ancestor trail …



Austin T. Jenks is my first cousin, 4 times removed.   Our most recent common ancestors (MRCA) were Laban and Prudence White Jenks.  Austin was born 22 July 1834 in New York, the son of Seth and Levinia Jenks Jenks (yes, his mother was also a Jenks — parents were second cousins).  He married Adelaide C Reed on 18 October 1858.   Cousin, Austin died 14 December 1912 in Minneapolis, Minnesota


About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
