Happy 201st Anniversary, Cousin Cal and Ellen!

201 years ago on 11 July 1819, my first cousin, five times removed, Calvin Jenks, the son of Elisha and Anna King Jenks, married Annis Ellen Brown, the daughter of David and Polly Jennison Brown.  The two were residents of Jenksville, New York, where they raised their brood of 12 children: David Brown (1820, Emily Castella (1823), Mary Ann (1825-1825), Mary Jane (1826), Stillman Leek (1828), Susan Adelia (1830), Orpha Louise (1832), Anson Brown (1834), Nathaniel Jennison (1837), Francis Marion (1839), Franklin Adelbert (1843), and Persis Marie (1844)!

Ellen predeceased Calvin on 15 July 1869.  He passed away on 3 March 1886.  Both in Jenksville.  Both laid to rest in the Glen Hope Cemetery in Jenksville, right across the street from my 4 times great grandfather’s farm house built in 1795.
