Wicklow / Bray Jenkins Family
« on: Sunday 12 August 07 06:36 BST (UK)  »
I just found out my Irish family were from Bray.  If anyone here lives there or near and can help my find records on my family I would appreciate it.  The name was Jenkins.  John Jenkins (b) anywhere w/in a 10 year period from 1797 to 1807 (m) a Mary J. Salmon who may have been married before to a Dwyer.  Mary was (b) about 1800 to 1804 or so.  Kids were John (maybe actually a Dwyer) (b) about 1833/34, and a Charles H. and a Ralph and an Eliza who was  (b) about 1842 or so.  They were in the US by 1850.   Leagen   Moderator comment: email removed - please use the PM system to exchange personal details

I am not an overly religious catholic but he alone made me a better one than I used to be.  I still do not agree with all the Church's teachings but I admired and respected him greatly and believe it will be a long time before there is another pope as loved, even by non-catholics, as he was.  He absolutely Was The People's Pope.  I am sure there is rejoicing in Heaven tonite yet I just feel very sad.  Leagen

This has nothing to do w/the meet so move this if you want.  I recently read that England is only about the size of the state of Vermont in New England.  Is this true?  I don"t think Scotland was included in the size.   Leagen

I am in U.S., east coast and already suggested we here meet somewhere near center of country but haven't seen any U.S. Rootschatters post anything about that idea except one or two.  So if any U.S. people want to get together somewhere please post your ideas here so we can start planning.  Leagen

Ireland / Re: Enniskillen- anywhere near Co.Cork?
« on: Tuesday 22 March 05 05:59 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for a John Jenkins (b) anywhere between 1797 and 1817, different records in U.S. give him different ages which never match any  previous record.  His wife was Mary/Maria J. Salmon who was (b) between 1804 and 1816.  She first (m) an unknown Dwyer and was (m) to Jenkins by 1837/38 for sure and maybe as early as 1832.  They are first found in U.S. in 1850.  Kids (all went by Jenkins but first one may actually be a Dwyer): John (b) ca.1833/34, Ralph (b) ca. 1838/39, Charles H. (b) ca. 1842/43, Eliza A. (b) ca. 1842/43 also.  All came to U.S. and living w/them in 1850 was a Catherine Hanson/Henson age 22 also from Ireland relationship unknown.  ANY help appreciated.  They were in upstate New York right on Canada border so may have been in Canada before .  Family says came during potato famine.   Leagen
