OK, Boomer!

It was on this day, 8 June in 1874, 146 years ago, that my 3rd cousin, six times removed, Boomer Jenks passed away. He might not have made my list of strange familial names except for the current craze of placating older members of society with the admonition of “OK, Boomer” referring to their origins in the post World War 2 Baby Boom.

Cousin Boomer was born 19 February 1761, in Scituate, Rhode Island, to Joseph and Sarah Moon Jenks.  He married Anna King, the daughter of Thomas King.   With Anna, he parented 13 children: John (1781), Thomas (1782), Sarah (1784), Olive (1786), Boomer King (1789), George Washington (1790), Charles (1792), James (1794), Lyman (1797), Eunice (1798), Aurelia (1800), Isaac (1803), and Andrew Nelson (1806)!

Anna passed away on 6 March 1839.  Boomer relocated to Marlborough, Vermont, prior to his passing and that is where he finally left this life.

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.
