136th Anniversary of Cousin Albert and Lizzie Jenks

136 years ago, 26 January 1884, in Springwells, Wayne County, Michigan, Albert Arlington Jenks [my first cousin, 3 times removed] married Elizabeth Jane (Lizzie) Varnham, the daughter of William and Harriet Hollis Varnham.   Albert was the son of Leman Case and Lydia Sickner Jenks.

Albert and Lizzie were the parents of 7 children:  Lydia Mabel (1885), Albert Arlington, Jr. (1887), Russell Edgar (1889), Baby Girl (1891-1891), Euphie Gertrude (1896) [who I profiled earlier], Elmer Sicknor (1899), and Harriet Lucinda (1903).

Lizzie died of pnemonia on 4 April 1906.   Albert married for a second time to Katie Lorain Chapman on 30 December 1907.  She passed away on 10 March 1916.  Albert married for a third time to Nellie White on 9 August 1920.  As far as my records go, it appears she outlived Albert as he died in 1929 without taking a fourth bride.

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.
