I accepted a call by the rural community church Cherry Hill Baptist Church, Perry County, in about November 1966, after I had begin my college studies at State College of Arkansas in Conway. This was an old church in the Landmark Baptist tradition, participating in the American Baptist Association, a mostly southern and mid-south association of churches. I was with this church for only about one year, then resigned some time in the Fall of 1967. as my college studies and work duties in Conway became heavier.

Orville Jenkins
2nd Grade, Estimated Age 8 (born abt 1948)
1956 The Chief Yearbook, Quanah Schools, Quanah, Texas, USA

Since 1977, friends have called me Obiwan. This got started with a young co-worker, because we were both Sci Fi and Star Wars fans. My parents called me Orville Boyd, since my father was Orville. I commonly go by Orville Boyd. But this is hard for people to get out, so many call me Orville.

A few friends prefer to call me Boyd, which I also like. I am named Boyd after my Uncle Russell Boyd and like that association. The Boyd family name is an honorable Scottish name, also known as Bute or Buit, a sub-sept of the Stewart clan, which produced the Royal Stewarts of Scotland and England. The name is from the word in the Scots (Northern Anglian) language, originally from medieval French, which also has come into the English language as "butte."

My Kenyan friends and colleagues normally just call me by my initials: OBJ. In my international radio broadcasting in Kenya, I used the radio name O B Jay.

I grew up in Quanah under my dad's tutelage in the radio business. He owned KOLJ, and I tagged along with him from early years. I began working as a DJ at age 9 and for 4 years I worked on the air, running the end-of-day program, "The Six Twelve and Twenty Show," a request program.

Dad was very big on natural health and we raised a totally organic garden on a half-acre, a quarter of a city block behind our home on 11th Street (US Hwy 287). We three boys worked in the garden, helped dad plant an orchard of fruit and nut trees over the acre of our home and garden plots. We sold vegetables at a stand in front of the house along 287, and were involved in other business ventures, like selling greeting cards and delivering papers. All three of us brothers sold the Grit newspaper, each to our own set of customers.

I distributed the Sunday Oklahoman weekly newspaper. I remember having to get up early, even on snowy, icy winter days, before the rest of the family was up, to roll and bag my papers. I would deliver my papers on my Cushman Eagle motor scooter, an 8 horsepower motorcycle style scooter, which was very popular among guys in Quanah. Quanah, Texas, was a small place, safe for children to roam and work, and full of opportunities. My mother made me saddlebags of canvas to carry the newspapers.

In November 1961, my mother wrote a letter to her sister Josephine Gregory Hayes (Aunt Jo to me) in Lindsay, Oklahoma, mentioning the paper routes we had, among the activities and events of our family at that time.

----------------------
Notable content:
(page 1)
Lou notes that she and her family will not be able to join her Gregory family for Thanksgiving.
All her sons are selling the Grit newspaper and are engaged each weekend with that.
Her son Orville Boyd additionally has a Sunday Oklahoman newspaper route and hopes to have a fill-in who can free him on occasions, to take such family trips.
She hopes they can visit her family at Christmas.
Her husband Orville is also engaged for a short time, because he has sold his radio station,
(page 2)
and part of that deal was that Orville would remain available as engineer for three months, and Thanksgiving falls within that period.
She and her husband Orville want to go as soon as he is free to Eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas to look at some farms they are considering buying, now that they are free from the radio business.
Lou asks how much their father's recent hospitalization cost, so she and her husband can send their share to pay on that.
Orville's father, Joseph Asa Jenkins, had a tumor removed from his prostate gland in Wesley Hospital in Oklahoma City.

I participated in school band from the 5th grade, playing the tenor saxophone. The band was responsible for half-time activities at the school football games. I hated marching and slogging through the mud churned up by the cleats of the football team in the rainy fall. I just wanted to play music. I stuck with it and continued with music and primarily play the saxophone today.

I later added the guitar, bass guitar and others along the way. I ultimately played in various worship bands in several countries and states of the US. I was in rock, blues and jazz bands, as leader of one and co-leader of another, and was worship leader for various churches and gatherings over the years. My folk-rock group (The New Light, playing around Arkansas, USA) and my jazz-pop group (Some Guys, in Kenya) each recorded one album.

In the 7th grade, I decided to run for the Student Council of Quanah Junior High School for the next year. I was elected Vice President. That summer I attended a statewide Student Council workshop with the other new officers, with our teacher-sponsor Mrs Barnes. I remember riding with her in the front seat of her beautiful Buick down to Dallas for the workshop. We had a busy and very productive and instructional workshop at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas.

At the end of that school year I served as Vice-President of the Student Council, we had a ceremony for installing the newly-elected officers for the next year. The Quanah Tribune-Chief carried a story about that.

----------------------
AWARD WINNERS AT JUNIOR HIGH

Retiring officers of the Quanah Junior High Student council installed the officers-elect Friday in a general assembly held in the High School Auditorium.

Chuck Hobbs, 8th grade, son of Dr. and Mrs. C. V. Hobbs and president for the past year, installed the new student body president, James Gibson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Gibson.

Orville Jenkins, son of Mr. and Mrs. Orville Jenkins, gave installation instruction to David Francis, vice-president elect and son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Francis.

Jane Wilson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, installed as the incoming secretary, Vonna Hines, 7th grade, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Hines.

The service was concluded by each of the new officers lighting candles from candles already lighted by the retiring officers. The new officers were presented to the student body and guests as the service closed.
...
Mrs J L Barnes presented the four retiring officers of the Student Council with awards. Those receiving these were Chuck Hobbes, Orville Jenkins, Jane Wilson and Rita Butts.

I participated in Cub Scouts then Boy Scouts. I was a member of Troop 58. We met in the Scout Hut at the City Park. In 1962 I was elected as the Scribe and Librarian for the Troop.

We were members of the First Baptist Church, where I was baptized at age 6. I was in graded choir from my earliest memories, and learned music theory there.

My brother Greg and I were both received a certificate for being involved in a Texas Baptist State Choir Festival, representing our church in Quanah. The certificates were signed by Russell H Dilday, later President of Southwestern Theological Seminary in Ft Worth, then Truett Seminary of Baylor University, Waco, Texas

This was very important in the music foundations that later expanded to singing and playing in various music groups, serving as the music leader for several churches from age 13 on. I was also nurtured in an exploring faith in those early years at First Baptist, and at age 15, felt a call to preach, or more accurately, ministry that would unfold in various channels and forms as my faith and experience developed.

I actually preached my first sermon at age 13, in the mission church of First Baptist, on the north side of Quanah, called Quanah Baptist Chapel. Our family was already involved in this mission on the north side of Quanah, and with my strong music background, I became the regular music leader for the worship services at age 12.

Southern Baptist Churches have an annual event called Youth Week, which was an opportunity for youth of the church to be involved in all the church leadership activities as part of their discipleship. My assignment was to preach the evening message in that church, where I was already the regular music leader. Due to my already long experience, I was ordained the week I graduated from High School in Conway, Arkansas. I had already been serving as the pastor of a church for the last two years of High School.

The local paper carried a story about that Youth Week in March 1963.

-------------------------
Baptist Chapel Youth Week Set, March 17-23

The Quanah Baptist Chapel will observe Youth Week March 17-23. Youth of the church will serve in places of leadership in the church throughout the week. Pastors for the week are Orville Boyd Jenkins, son of Mr and Mrs O L Jenkins and Dennis Howard, nephew of Mr and Mrs M E McDaniel.

Other Youth Week officers include Ray Mahan, Sunday School Superintendent, Terry McNeese, [transcription undecipherable] Director, Tony Ray, Adult Superintendent and Janice John, Intermediate Superintendent. Those serving as the teachers are Barbara Marsh, Orville Jenkins, Janice Johns, and Melvena Estill. Head man of the ushers will be Perry McNeese. The youth week workers will be honored with a (undecipherable) at 8:30 Sunday morning. All interested persons are invited to attend these youth-led services.

In March 1962 I was mentioned in a news story as one of a group of new members of the Honor Society for Quanah High School.

----------------------
Quanah School Honor Society Inducts New Members
(Headline and first part of article not discernible)

Receiving certificates of membership were: Orville Jenkins, Dale Ford, Glenda Coburn, Rita Butts, Trudy Fultz, Sherry Kay Green, Sherry Griffin, and Loreece Whitmire. Being received as probationary members are: Kenneth Tidmore, Edwenna Fincher, Katie Fiero, Marquita Horton, James Gibson and Dannie Harmon.

Being selected to the Honor Society is an honor and a privilege and any school benefits from the services rendered by the organization. The lightful torch is their symbol and the emblem and motto are fitting for “Light is the symbol of truth” as the guiding force in the pace set in our student body by these worthy young men and women.

Miss Louise Goodnight, sponsor of the group, led the group in their pledge and Charles Welch, Principal, presented the new members with membership certificates.
-- Quanah Tribune Chief, Quanah, Texas, 1 March 1962, p 4
----------------------

I was also in the list of Honor Roll for the final 6 weeks of school that year.

"High honor roll for the six weeks was announced this week by Principal Welch, with the eighth grade leading the list with 21 meeting the required level. The seventh grade was next with ten, and the sixth grade with seven. 8th Grade - Diane Barnes, Glenda Coburn, Audean Downey, Dale Ford, Betty Howard, Sherrie Green, Andrea Jones, Christi Long, Vicki Preston, Loreese Whitmire, David Ellis, Dannie Harmon, Charles Hobbs, Gary Naylor, Sue Braziel, Rita Butts, Trudy Fultz, Sherrie Griffin, Orville Jenkins, Janet Roberts, Vickie Sebesta."

I lived in Quanah, Texas, until about June 1963, when my father and I went to Arkansas to jobs he had arranged for us, as the first stage in a move to Arkansas, where dad and mom had bought a farm. The last year in Quanah, we were all listed together as a family in Quanah's city directory for 1962-63.

I found a news story about an event I don't remember. This was a Christmas program at the Quanah Baptist Chapel, a mission of the First Baptist Church on the north side of town, where our family had been participating since I was 12 years old, which would make it since about 1960 or 1961.

My father and I moved to Faulkner County, Arkansas. We were both working in Conway during the summer. I went to school at Conway High School.

Before leaving Quanah, from age 12, I had been leading the music in a mission church sponsored by our church of First Baptist Church in Quanah. I also preached my first sermons there in a youth Sunday when I was 13. Not long after we moved to Arkansas, I was serving as the music leader for a small church in Conway, Arkansas, where my father and I opened an electronics service center. At the end of our first year there, before the end of my 10th grade, I expressed a sense of call to full-time Christian service, and stated it was for music and preaching. I continued working with my father till I graduated from high School in 1966.

My pastor gave me opportunities to preach and I began getting invitations to other churches. Near the end of the summer, I was asked to serve a church in the neighboring county that met every two weeks. I worked with them till I graduated from high school. The church was the Springfield Missionary Baptist Church in Springfield, Arkansas.

"Springfield (Conway County), once the county seat of Conway County, began as the intersection of the Old Cherokee Boundary Line and a principal route of the Western Cherokee in their relocation west of the Mississippi River. The National Road, from St. Genevieve, Missouri, was routed through the area, taking advantage of a large reliable artesian spring. These roads connected the area with developing population centers such as Batesville (Independence County), Clinton (Van Buren County), Lewisburg (Conway County), and Little Rock (Pulaski County)."
-- "Springfield (Conway County)," Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, http://www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net/encyclopedia/entry-detail.aspx?entryID=6416

I graduated from Conway High School in June 1966. That same week my home church in Conway ordained me to the gospel ministry, with representatives form other congregations from Faulkner and Conway counties.

From the week of graduation, I worked as a disk jockey-announcer and producer at local radio station KVEE in Conway. I later worked at another station in Conway. During the first year of classes in college, I also served as pastor of another small church in Cherry Hill in neighboring Perry County. Offerings from the church sometimes covered expenses.

But I dropped that after the first year, giving priority to my studies and working to support myself. I worked at the radio station, with whatever else I was doing. I was a DJ, but also produced some live-band programs we recorded for Saturday broadcast.

In that first year of college, I also taught myself to play the guitar, and a couple of the bands I was recording invited me to sit in with them periodically on their weekly programs. Meanwhile I started my own music group with some student friends. It was a busy time.

I had to pay my way through school, and I was living on my own. I was often working 12-16 hours a day at two jobs most of the time, plus taking a full load of classes, and leading my music group. I slept when I had to.

I worked at KVEE from 1966 till about 1969 or 1970, when I took up another job at a truck dock in Little Rock. I then also started working for the other radio station in town, KCON, and worked at those two jobs until I graduated and left Conway in January 1971.

The following excerpt from an article by a local Conway historian gives the history of the two radio stations in Conway, and mentions my name as one of the well-known personalities who had worked at KVEE. This article mentions my work there to all the period I was in college, but seems unaware that I also worked at KCON a part of the time.

---------------------
KVEE, the other radio station in town, was originally owned by J.C. Willis, Hugh C. Jones, Harold J. Nichols and William E. Cooper. They sold the station to Robin Brown of Brown Broadcast, Inc. in 1965. Robin Brown was the son of Paul Brown, legendary coach of the Cleveland Browns and coach/owner of the Cincinnati Bengals. The studio was located on Washington Avenue and the station played mostly country music.

Several notable personalities worked there over the years. From 1966-1971 Orville B. Jenkins was a radio announcer and producer. James “Uncle Mac” MacKrell, an Arkansas radio personality who unsuccessfully ran for Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas in 1950 and Governor of Arkansas in 1970, began hosting a radio show called Party Line on KVEE in Conway after the 1970 election.

In the first week of classes at State College of Arkansas, I met Edith Marie McSwain. We became close and got engaged after two years of school, We waited till she graduated to marry, in August 1970. The first couple of years we participated in the Missionary Baptist Student Fellowship on the campus. I served as pastor of the Cherry Hill Missionary Baptist Church, in Perry County, west across the Arkansas River from Conway.

There was a ferry on Hwy 60 at the river, but because of time and uncertainty, I always took the long way around on US 64 through Plummerville to the west and south to Perryville, county seat of Perry County, then out a few miles west to Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill was a rural community with a couple of small churches. The whole county is rural, with only about 10,000 people.

"Perry County is a county located in the U.S. state of Arkansas. Its population was 10,445 at the 2010 United States Census. The county seat is Perryville. The county was formed on December 18, 1840, and named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, naval hero in the War of 1812."

Edith and I and some of our group also became familiar with the Baptist Student Union and began to spend more of our time there. In my second year of college, I organized a Christian folk group called The Folk. Edith was one of the members. The Folk became fairly successful for a year or so, before some members graduated and our schedules all diverged.

The Folk went to Daytona Beach one Easter and sang on the beach and in the bandshell. I was there again as a solo act on another trip through the Arkansas Baptist Student Union. Edith and I were there once later as we joined the Arkansas group from our new residence in North Carolina in Easter 1971.

The Folk sang at several events at the BSU and other locales in Central Arkansas. After some members of the group graduated and moved away, I organized a new group as a rock band playing Christian folk and rock songs for the last couple of years I was in UCA. I called this folk-rock band The New Light.

By 1969 I was working at two jobs, sleeping very little and continued to sing and preach every chance I could get. The New Light sang quite often in churches, youth groups, local music festivals, regional and state events and after-game events for high school and college, especially at the BSU in Conway.

The New Light was traveling around the state in music programs, mostly at churches or university music events, various BSU events, as well as local events around Conway and Faulkner County. In 1970, The New Light recorded an album, which we sold at our appearances. What a schedule! I continued in school for a ninth semester for the fall of 1970.

Besides my own music group, I also was asked to be an instrumentalist for two contemporary music youth musicals performed by the First Baptist Church of Conway. In 1969 we performed the new contemporary musical "Purpose," composed by Phillip Landgrave."

One photo and story showed our pastor Pastor, Dr William Flynt, with the Minister of Music and Youth Choir President, previewing the contemporary Christian musical "Purpose," by Phillip Landgrave. Another photo article showed the whole choir in performance at the church. Edith was also one of the vocalists in this choir. Dr Flynt was the pastor who performed our marriage in the church on 1 August 1970. I have clippings from these two stories about this musical from the Log Cabin Democrat, Conway Arkansas, in April 1969.

In 1970, the First Baptist Church youth choir did a rock musical called "Tell it Like it Is." Edith was again one of the vocalists and my younger brother Gary was the drummer for the choir. We presented the musical in the spring, then did some touring performances, including Arkansas Girl's State and selections from the musical on one of the Little Rock TV station's noon news and feature program.

In my last couple of years at UCA, I took courses in music theory as electives, three semesters of music studies in small classes with music majors. That was fun and enriching. I took music theory to get a better understanding of chord structure to boost my writing and arranging for songs for The New Light. This was a very enjoyable part of my college experience.

I continued with my major in Philosophy and minor in French. I also studied and became proficient in German, and improved my Spanish skills by taking the college level courses.

In French I took the teacher preparation courses in French, even though I was not intending to teach. This gave me deeper exposure to French language and culture and honed my skills, which I continued to use for the rest of my life, in international travel, work and study. I later took a course in Commerce in French with the University of the Sorbonne in Paris, through their branch in Nairobi, Kenya. Another enriching and fun experience.

Edith and I got married in August 1970, and were applying for a 2-year volunteer period, where we were assigned to Kenya the next year. The New Light continued when I finished my studies at UCA in January of 1971. Edith and I moved to North Carolina for me to begin my Seminary study.

I had arranged for The New Light to become the official music group of the Arkansas Baptist Student Union, succeeding the first group that had filled this new slot in the BSU work, The Mill Singers. The New Light continued to sing in various Arkansas locales under their new sponsorship by the BSU, churches and other events after I went to Kenya in August of 1971.

----------------------

Soon after arriving in Kenya in August 1971, I was asked by the Director of Baptist Communications Centre to assist in founding Afromedia, a Christian Media Production Agency, in Nairobi, Kenya. So I became a founding member of the Board of Directors and a sound producer in Afromedia's early projects from 1971.

The agency was established cooperatively by several Christian churches and missions in Kenya for the purpose of TV and film production, and in the late 1980s or early 1990s became an independent agency focusing on children's programs for Voice of Kenya (VOK).

For a period of several years, I served in production on various short projects, including short features or TV series for VOK TV, the government-owned national television entity for Kenya, commercials for local companies as income-producing projects, and a feature film in the late 1970s called "Checkpoint" with a Christian theme around the East Africa Safari Rally.

I was the producer of a children's TV series called Simba Tales, produced for several years on videotape at the VOK. I wrote and produced scripts for a children's puppet show series for several years. I served as Executive Director of the agency for several years. Then until the mid 1990s, I continued to serve as a member of the Board of Directors.

One public record reports our Dallas address on Colorado Blvd. This is actually the address of our friends, Jerry and Martha Gilmore, with whom we stayed at times on visits from our Kenya assignment and used their address as a permanent address for a time.

Over the years, Edith and I were involved in overseas work assignments for 36 years. We were in Kenya over the period 1971-1973, then 1976-1997, with short periods in the US every 3 or 4 years.

I was a teacher and methods instructor in the Toronto Institute of Linguistics (TIL) in several summer sessions from 1974 through 1985. I worked there and on the field working with Dr Donald Larson of Bethel University, and TIL in Kenya, Zambia and the US in training sessions for volunteers and missionaries, focusing on language and culture learning methods.

The Toronto Institute of Linguistics was founded in 1949 as part of the Canadian School of Missions and offered intensive language and culture courses training missionaries.

After I went through 2 /1/2 years of further preparation in Dallas area graduate schools, Edith and I were appointed as career missionaries by the Foreign Mission Board. The Tribune-Chief was again among newspapers that carried the story.

Former Quanahan, Wife To Serve In Kenya

Mr and Mrs Orville Boyd Jenkins were among 18 missionaries appointed at the December meeting of the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board in Richmond, Virginia. They expect to be assigned to Kenya where he will be a communications worker.

Rev Jenkins and his wife are now living in Dallas where he is associate director of the North Texas Christian Communications Commission. Arlington, and a student at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas. Mrs Jenkins is a secretary at Mountain View College in Dallas.

Rev Jenkins was born in Chickasha, Oklahoma and grew up in Quanah. He was graduated from State College of Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas with the Bachelor of Arts Degree. He also attended Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina and Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. Jenkins was employed by the board as missionary journeymen in Kenya where he worked in Baptist Communications.

-- Quanah Tribune Chief, Quanah, Texas, 24 June 1976, p 7
----------------------

Among the academic institutions I studied at there were two more not listed in the story above. During my time in Dallas-Fort Worth, I also took courses at Brite Divinity School of Texas Christian University (Ministry) and University of Texas at Arlington (Linguistics).

In this new assignment I was initially involved again in media production and training work, but after a short time, our mission asked me to transfer to a new assignment as Director of Language and Orientation, to develop a linguistically-sound language and culture learning program. I already had the academic and professional requirements for this assignment with the mission, having the equivalent of a Master's degree in Linguistics by the time I finished by varied graduate studies.

I worked in the East African arena, then was asked to expand to Eastern and Southern Africa areas and became a consultant and trainer for missions all over Africa. assisting them to set up appropriate training programs with whatever sources might be available, formal or informal. This grew into a broader consultancy that involved my travel to conduct seminars or field surveys and program recommendations in West African countries as well.

I developed training and support for leaders responsible for programs to enable new mission personnel to learn local languages, cultures and worldviews as the basis for developing culturally-appropriate communication strategies to engage the thousands of peoples of Africa.

I developed a community-based and culture-oriented Swahili language learning program and implemented progress and competence evaluation formats and conducted similar programs in 7 languages of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Over the years I developed methods of self-evaluation and implementation of custom programs in several languages and cultures around Africa, and served as a resource for various cross-cultural training programs and organizations. During our 25 years in Kenya, I wrote, edited and/or translated various resources for language and culture learning and Christian work and life.

Many materials and learning modules were developed for several courses I designed and implemented for cultural orientation, initially in East Africa, then over many countries and cultures of Africa. I conducted training workshops for orientation coordinators and developers in many language groups of the huge African continent.

Some resources were formally published for broader use and distribution. I was also a guest lecturer at several Universities or Christian seminaries on Culture, Islam, language and culture learning, ethnographic research, cultural worldview mapping, Orality and non-literate culture and worldview, and anthropological mission strategy approaches.

----------------------
For many years Orville Boyd Jenkins has been responsible for the language learning and cultural orientation program for Southern Baptists in East Africa. During this time, methods and techniques have changed as newer and better methods have been discovered. Orville Boyd has combined cultural learning and adaptation into the language learning program where he works at the Baptist Language Centre, located at Brackenhurst International Conference Centre, near Limuru, Kenya. He says, "Learning a language means learning a culture."

More recently he has become Area Language Consultant for Africa and has traveled widely on the continent assisting missions in establishing language and orientation programs. As language learning and cultural adaptation have become increasingly more urgent in reaching people, Orville Boyd has developed methods to help those studying language to become more proficient in language and to communicate effectively. He is well qualified to assist new missionaries in developing an attitude which facilitates language and culture learning. This book demonstrates his value as a linguist, and I highly recommend it.

In 1998, we moved to the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus, 40 miles from Turkey and 70 miles from Syria. We resided there and worked in ethnic research and cross-cultural communication strategies and training for cross-cultural workers until September 2001. We moved to the US right after travel opened up again after the 9-11 destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City. We spent 4 years in Richmond, Virginia, when I was organizing and coordinating an international research network on all the ethnicities of the world.

I was the first Editor of the Registry of Peoples (ROP), a new codeset for ethnicities of the world, designed to enable databases of any form and format to exchange and compare information to gain a more accurate picture of the peoples of the world and the changing factors generation to generation.

The ROP was a project of Harvest Information Systems. I directed this project for the first four years from Richmond, Virginia, then continued when we moved to South Africa, from October 2005 to January 2008.

I moved to South Africa in 2005, where I worked halftime or so on the international people research about half time, while working in more local settings in Eastern Central and Southern Africa with local teams in various countries working on people research and cross-cultural communication strategies. Moving back to the United States, I handed this responsibility to the succeeding editor, Dr Jim Courson, in 2009 after served as Editor for over 7 years before final retirement from service in April 2010.

"My daughter, Susanne Uno, told me about your page. You do not remember, of course, but I knew you before you were a year old, as I knew your father, Orville. He was my husband's uncle. I am the widow of Harold Christian. By the way, Harold was born in 1922, not 1919. I am still trying to find the father of Joseph Sanford Jenkins. I would enjoy hearing from you."

Mullinax Descent

I am descended from the original Mullinaxes, John and Sarah. Two direct descendants of John and Sarah, the surname Mullinax are my direct lineal grandmothers. One channel of direct descent is from Sarah Mullinax, born 1826, who married Marick (Merrick) West.

Sarah Mullinax (1826 - 1914) is your 3rd great grandmother

Augustus Lafayette West (1853 - 1888) son of Sarah Mullinax

Lou Ada (sometimes appears as Luada) Caldonia West (1877 - 1907) daughter of Augustus Lafayette West

Alpharetta Mae Green (1895 - 1963) daughter of Lou Ada (sometimes found as Luada) Caldonia West

Lou Ila Gregory (1920 - ) daughter of Alpharetta Mae Green

Orville Boyd Jenkins. You are the son of Lou Ila Gregory.

Another channel of descent connects through George Ross Mullins, son of Frances Ann Mullinax and John M Mullins.

Frances Ann Mullinax (1799 - 1870) is your 5th great grandmother

George Ross Mullins (1819 - 1896) son of Frances Ann Mullinax

Nancy Elizabeth Mullins (1843 - 1911) daughter of George Ross Mullins

Amanda A Tatum (1860 - 1945) daughter of Nancy Elizabeth Mullins

Lou Ada Caldonia West (1877 - 1907) daughter of Amanda A Tatum

Alpharetta Mae Green (1895 - 1963) daughter of Luada Caldonia West

Lou Ila Gregory (1920 - ) daughter of Alpharetta Mae Green

Orville Boyd Jenkins (1948 -) son of Lou Ila Gregory

You can see that from the two charts above, the dual chain of descent joins into my maternal line with Augustus Lafayette West, son of Sarah Mullinax, and his wife Amanda Tatum, daughter of Nancy Elizabeth Mullins, who was the granddaughter of Frances Ann Mullinax.
