Family information from the previous generation indicates that in his youth Joseph Asa was called Jode (I think it was pronounced Jodie). An early family notation also spells his middle name as Acy. My dad, Orville Lee Jenkins, also called his brother Asa by this name all his life.

Joseph Asa was born in Cass County, Texas. In the 1880 census, Joe is reported as Joe Asa, age 16. This would mean he was born about 1864. No family researcher has been able to find his family in the 1870 census in any state. Joe's mother, Lucinda Taylor Jenkins, died around 1869. It is likely the family was out of state and traveling at the time of the census.

Jenkins, Joe Asa W M 16 Son Farming Tx SC Miss [b abt 1864]

Joe's age is reported here as 16, which would make him born about 1864. Since his birth date is near the end of June, and the census date was actually 1 June, it should mean he was born in 1863, if they were really being accurate. But the birth date on his gravestone is 25 June 1866. The reported age in 1910 was 43, which would match the stated birth date.

In 1879, there was a tax record in Cass county for a J A Jenkins, on the same page and three lines under an Elijah Jenkins. Neither Elijah or J A Jenkins is reported as owning any land. Neither did they report any personal property, which probably indicated they were living on their parents property in their parents home. The only tax paid was the state and county poll tax.

Texas, County Tax Rolls
Jenkins, Elijah, no personal property, state poll tax $2.00, county poll tax $1.00, Total Tax $3.00
Jenkins, J A, no personal property, state poll tax $2.00, county poll tax $1.00, Total Tax $3.00
1879 Tax Assessment, Cass County, p 45

No ages are reported on these tax rolls. But according to the received birth date of 28 June 1866 in family records, Joseph Asa would have been about 13 in 1879. By the age reported in the 1880 census, he would have been 16, but this would still have been under legal age. It is unclear if he could have voted and thus needed to pay the poll tax.

It appears, however, that the age of majority in Texas was 21, and the law provided for the removing of the disability of minority at age 17. This law was passed in 1871, so was in effect in 1879. But it not likely the birth date of Joseph Asa Jenkins has been misremembered and misrecorded in family memory and records to the discrepancy between 1866 and 1862, which it would be if he was a legal adult and could already vote in 1879. Further, there is nothing in Jenkins family memory about Joe gaining adult status early through legal means.

Since this J A Jenkins is not likely the son of Joseph Sanford Jenkins of Cass County, it seems likely that this J A as well as the Elijah on the same page are some kinfolks of Joseph Sanford. John Cullen Jenkins named a son Ebby Elijah.

On 27 March 1887 Joseph Asa married Hester Smith, whose family lived near the Jenkins farm. The date on the Marriage Certificate issued in Cass County, Texas, is 25 March 1887, issued to J A Jenkins and Annie Smith.

------------------
Joseph Asa was first married to Hester Ann Smith, daughter of Benjamin Frank Smith and his wife Mary Isabella (Henson) Chapel, widow of Archy Chapel of Cass County, Texas.

During the 1952 interview referenced above, Joseph said he first noticed Hester Ann at church. He said he was so taken by her beauty that he didn't hear a word that the preacher said.
Four years later Joseph saw Hester for the second time.

She had accompanied her half-brother Thomas Jefferson Chapel and his wife Mary Lide (or Lydia), Joseph's older sister, on a visit to the Jenkins home. Joseph said he again "got to looking at Hester Ann and it wasn't long until they were married."

At that time Hester was 16 and Joseph was "a couple of months short of being 21.” Joseph Asa and Hester Ann were married in Cass County, Texas, on 27 March 1887.

Joseph was reported in the 1889 and 1890 Cass County tax rolls, along with his brother J C (John Cullen) and their father J S (Joseph Sanford). Joseph was 25 years old at that time.

In 1889, J A was the only Jenkins listed on his page. His brother Cullen and his father J S were on the previous page.

It was about this time that Joe moved his family across the border into Indian Territory at Healdton, Chickasaw Nation, near the Texas border. His father Joseph Sanford Jenkins moved with the family, and died in 1893 in Marlow, Stephens County, Chickasaw Nation. It is not clear if Joseph Sanford's second wife Louisa Christian Jenkins also moved with the family. In a 1952 television interview in Oklahoma City, Joe said he had been in Oklahoma since 1890.

Joseph said, "I have been here since 1890."
-- Jenkins Journal, April 1982, by Harold Keith Christian, p 2

"During the 1952 TV interview, Joseph [Asa Jenkins] first stated he had lived in Oklahoma since 1890."
-- Jenkins Family History, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf, pp 9-10, 13

There is no reference to her in Jenkins family tradition about the move to Indian Territory. A later news story about her and the Christian family refers to her son going back in 1900 to sell the (Christian) family farm after her death. It may be she decided not to move to Indian Territory, and died in the meantime. But family tradition has not comment on her death or burial. No Christian or Jenkins family researcher is known to have found any information on her burial.

"The Christians [sic] children ... Their mother, Louisa, married a second time, J. S. Jenkins, March 7, 1872, and had one son, Henry. After her death in 1900, Joseph Benjamin Christian sold the family farm to Lonzo Hicks. Family tradition states that there is a lineage connection to the Hensley family but this has not been proven."

=======================
From Texas to Indian Territory
By Orville Boyd Jenkins

In his Jenkins Family History, Harold Christian tells of the move from Cass County, Texas, to Indian Territory. Writing about the family of Joseph Asa Jenkins, Harold tells us Joseph Asa moved his family from their Texas home in 1890 or 1891.

Family tradition and later evidence indicate that Joseph Asa's father Joseph Sanford Jenkins moved with his son to Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory. At this time Joseph Sanford was about 65, and Joseph Asa was about 25. Joseph Asa settled near Marlow, in what is now Stephens County, Oklahoma.

In his narrative about Joseph Asa Jenkins, Harold tells us about the move:
"Joseph said he loaded all of his possessions into two covered wagons for the move. It took him sixteen days to make the trip from Dalton, Texas, to Healdton, Indian Territory. Two of Joseph's brother-in-laws are believed to have been living in Healdton at that time. One is believed to have been Joseph Benjamin Christian and his wife Catherine Smith, sister of Hester Ann. The other is believed to have been Nelson Winter and his wife Margaret Catherine Jenkins, Joseph's sister" (page 13, The Jenkins Family History, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf).

Margaret Catherine Jenkins was the daughter of Joseph Sanford Jenkins and Lucinda Amanda Taylor. Joseph Benjamin Christian was the stepson of Joseph Sanford, the son of Joseph Sanford's second wife (or third according to one line of family tradition), Luisa (Taylor?) Christian. Christians married Jenkinses in three generations of life together in Texas and Oklahoma.

Descendants of Joseph Sanford Jenkins in Cass County have contributed two old photographs that are thought to have been taken of the Jenkins family crossing the Red River on that trek into Indian Territory. These photos show a covered wagon and several family members on a flatbed ferry, about to launch.

Joseph Asa's father Joseph Sanford died in 1893 and was buried in Marlow. There is no record of the date or place of death of Joseph Sanford's wife Louisa Christian Jenkins. It is not known if she died before the move to Indian Territory, or died en route. She is not buried in Marlow, and the family has no information on her death or burial.
=======================

Healdton was in the western side of what became Carter County, Oklahoma, not far from Ardmore. Though Joe's father Joseph Sanford was buried in Marlow, we find that in December of that year, Joseph and Hettie's daughter Sallie was born in December 1893 in Wapanucka, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory. Wapanucka is in what became Johnston County, also in what was then Chickasaw Nation.

Wapanucka is some distance west from Ardmore, and some distance from Healdton. Wapanucka had been the location of a Confederate hospital and prison, after the Chickasaw Nation joined the Confederate States of America.

"The Chickasaw government joined the Confederate States of America after the outbreak of the Civil War. The Union army ordered its troops to evacuate Fort Washita, Fort Cobb and Fort Arbuckle. When Confederate troops occupied the area, they used the stone building at Wapanucka as a hospital and a prison."
-- "Johnston County, Oklahoma," Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnston_County,_Oklahoma

But Marlow, the county seat of Stephens County, where Joe's family are living in 1900, is even farther north and west. Perhaps Joseph Sanford actually died out some distance from Marlow, at home or on the trail, in or near Wapanucka, and the body was taken for report of death to be buried in Marlow.

They moved after a short while to Marlow, where Joe leased a farm for a while. He moved into Marlow town shortly after Sallie was born in December 1893.

"Family tradition indicates Joseph helped build the railroad through Marlow. It is believed that he was engaged in cutting trees and splitting them for railroad ties during the period 1893-1894, living with his family in the vicinity of Wapanucka [Chickasaw Nation], Indian Territory."
-- Harold K Christian, Jenkins Family History, p 14, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf

Joseph Asa with wife Hester (Hattie) and family are recorded in the 1900 Chickasaw Nation (Stephens County, Oklahoma) census. They are in Marlow, later the county seat of Stephens County.

Hattie died soon after this census. Joe married a young woman whose family had recently moved from Georgia. Julia Virgina Terry's parents did not want her to marry this much older man, so she sneaked out of the house to join him to get married there in Marlow town. In later years, letters to Julia Virginia (Jennie) from her mother, Martha Wall Terry, indicate she had grown to love and admire Joseph Asa.

From about 1902 Joseph lived on a farm near Bradley. In December 1903 or January 1904 (after the birth of Thomas Asa on the farm 3 November 1903), the family moved into Bradley town, to run a store and serve as postmaster. They lived there till after the birth of Nannie May in October 1905, probably moving away after the winter in 1906.

"Asa, the second child of this marriage was born on 3 November 1903 while the family was living on the farm near Bradley. Following Asa's birth, Joseph moved his family into Bradley. He purchased a mercantile store from a Mr. Cater. During this period he sold groceries and drygoods and also served as Bradley Postmaster."
-- Jenkins Family History by Harold K Christian, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf, p 16

"Nannie May was born on 29 October 1905, probably following Joseph's move from the farm into town at Bradley. Apparently Joseph returned with his family to Marlow from Bradley about 1906. Joseph and Virginia lost their baby daughter Nannie May who died on 23 September 1906. Nannie was buried in the Marlow cemetery."
-- Jenkins Family History by Harold K Christian, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf, p 16

Joseph was appointed postmaster on 14 Apr 1905 and served until about February 1906. The next appointment of a Bradley Postmaster was on 14 February 1906. His salary in that position was a few pennies short of $300 a year.

They were in Marlow before the death of Nannie May in September 1906. Nannie May was buried in Marlow Cemetery. We now know that Joe and Jennie moved back to Marlow between about February and September 1906. Soon after Nannie's death, Joseph became the city marshal in Marlow, serving for about 3 years.

In this census, Julia's birthplace is reported as Georgia. There are a couple of other reports of Georgia as her birthplace, but most censuses report Texas as her state of birth. In fact, her parents are reported in the 1880 census in McLennan County, Texas. Julia was born a few months later that same year. The Baby Jinkins here is Bud (Arthur Carthal), whose date of birth is 28 December 1909.

This date is reported by Harold Christian from family source, and was also given to me directly by Bud's nephew Asa Lee Jenkins. Bud's gravestone in Fairlawn (Chickasha, Oklahoma) Cemetery has only the year 1909. At any rate, we would expect to see Bud here with an age of about 4 months. But in May 2009, Bud's son (my cousin) Carthal Trent told me he had always heard that his father was born in Mt View. This would mean that Bud was not born until 1910, which would account for his not being recorded in the May 1910 census in Marlow. But did family members remember the year of Bud's birth incorrectly?

According to information compiled by Harold Christian for the Jenkins family, Joe Jenkins moved his family to Mountain View shortly after the 1910 census. He first farmed on a farm of his brother-in-law Bill Christian, then moved to an Indian lease farm. Harold Christian tells the story:

"By about 1910 he had decided to move his family from Marlow to Mountain View, Oklahoma, where he was to settle for a few years supporting his family by farming. ... "Some time after the marriage of daughter Sallie and Cleve Christian in November 1911] Joseph is believed to have moved his family from Bill Christian's farm at Oakdale [north of Mountain View just across the county line into Caddo County] to an Indian lease he subsequently obtained southeast of Mountain View."
-- Jenkins Family History by Harold K Christian, http://objgenealogy.com/articles/josephsanfordjenkinshistory.pdf, p 17

There is a story of their moving to Vancouver, British Columbia, for a period before World War I. Joseph Asa mentions this in his television interview on WKY-TV in Oklahoma City in 1955. Some comments from the story, by Joseph or from some of his children's memories, are unclear whether the whole family or just some of the family moved to Canada. They returned to Mt View after this interim of working in Vancouver.

In March 2009, I found out more specific details about the trip to Vancouver in a newspaper story that my step mother gave me among items that had belonged to my father. This clarified that Joe had moved to "Vancouver, B. C., where Mr. Jenkins worked on the Canadian-Alaskan Highway project. When war [WWI] broke out in 1914, they returned to Mountain View." [See full story below.]

When Joseph went to Vancouver has not been discovered. But a Canadian immigration record records Jennie's entry with all the children in December 1912.

Canadian Immigration Records, White Rock, British Columbia, 12 Dec 1912

Jenkins, Carthal age Male 3 Farmer Born Texas Citizen of Texas Train CMR 356 from Oklahoma to Vancouver
Jenkins, Orville Male age 8months Farmer Born Texas Citizen of Texas Train CMR 356 from Oklahoma to Vancouver

It seems they were in Vancouver about 2.5 years. The Jenkins Family History by Harold Keith Christian, p 19, reports that "[After the birth of Netheline in December 1918] Joseph is believed to have moved his family from Mountain View first to a farm south of Fort Cobb and sometime thereafter into Fort Cobb." However, they were still enumerated as a family in Mt View in the 1920 census. And Jennie was active in the local Democratic Party there, being appointed as a precinct committee member in Mt View in October 1920.

There is thus some discrepancy over the times as given by Harold, from family memories he collected. In the 1920 census, he is still farming in Mt View Township. He moved to Fort Cobb some time later, or perhaps he took the orphanage position in Ft Cobb while retaining the farm near Mt. View, and the family was still living there during the 1920 census.

Harold Christian continues: "[After moving to Fort Cobb], it is believed he managed an orphan's home for about the first year. Apparently not satisfied with that he again entered the profession of law enforcement, first serving as a deputy to the Town Marshall and subsequently as Town Marshall."

A report from his daughter Mabel would place the beginning of the Marshall job in October 1921, though they could have been living in the town already before that time. Harold Christian quotes Joe's daughter Mabel as saying: "When Kerwin was about 3-4 days old, Poppa was made City Marshall." Kerwyn (Charles) was born in October 1921. If Mabel's memory is right, then Joseph Asa became Marshall of Fort Cobb in October 1921.

Joe was a peace officer for a total of 20 years, serving as chief of police in Marlow, deputy sheriff in Mountain View and city marshal of Fort Cobb. Here is the information for this family from the 1930 census record from Fort Cobb, Caddo County, Oklahoma.

Note that the birthplace of Julia as well as Joe is given as Texas. This corroborates earlier reports that she alone of all the Terry children was born in Texas, though those after her were born in Georgia until the final child born in Oklahoma. In the Notes for Julia Virginia Terry I detail the 1880 census record reporting Julia's parents in McLennan County, Texas, where Julia was born in Lorena in December 1880. The Terrys appear to have moved to Texas with other Terrys, but then Thomas Duncan decided for some reason to move back to the Terrys' home area in Murray County, Georgia.

Note that Rhonda's name is written all as one name rather than two, as the family seem to have it. This was the case in 1910 also, when her name was spelled Rhondafay. It is also unusual that in 1930 her name is entered last, though she is the oldest child still at home.

Joseph became somewhat renowned as a lawman during his days at Fort Cobb. Stories about some of Joesph's spectacular experiences as a lawman were reported in the Fort Cobb paper in 1931 and 1932. A line in the obituary of his young daughter Virginia Jo, who died in a gun accident in 1930, describes him as a night watchman.

"The Jenkins family has lived in Fort Cobb for the past nine years where Mr. Jenkins is employed as night watchman."
-- The Carnegie Herald, July 2, 1930, cited in Find A Grave Memorial #8771471, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=68771471

The 1940 census reports that Joe and Jennie lived in or near Ft Cobb in 1935, then moved to Chickasha somewhere before 1940. They were in Chickasha by 1938, when they were reported in the Chickasha City Directory for that year. Note that in 1938, their address is on 18th Street, but in 1940 they are on 14th Street.

Notice that in the 1930 census their address was Fort Cobb, but in 1920 they had been in Mountain view, but in the 1940 census, they report that they were living in rural Caddo County in 1935 before moving to Chickasha.

The Chickasha City Directory of 1940 lists is similar to the 1938 entry, but Orville is listed with a separate residence address.

They lived in Chickasha during my childhood. The home I knew was at 1016 S 20th St in Chickasha, which is reported in later censuses and directories up to 1959. They were in that house at least by 1951. The story of their 50th wedding anniversary reports the 20th Street address. Here is the news story of Joe and Jennie's 50th Wedding Anniversary in 1951, which provides rich detail about their life and the places they lived. The open-house celebration for them was held in the home of their son Bud (Arthur Carthal), just a few blocks away from the home on 20th Street.

==================================
J. A. Jenkinses Celebrate 50th Wedding Anniversary
Six of Seven Children Plan Open House

Fifty years ago last Thursday, a 20-year-old girl slipped unnoticed through a window of a neighbor's house in Marlow and drove away in a buggy with her financé to be married.

Today, fifty years and three days later, the couple will celebrate their golden, wedding anniversary. They are Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Jenkins, 1016 South 20th.

The 1901 wedding ceremony was performed by the preacher as the couple sat in the buggy in front of his house. Plans for the dreamed-of church wedding were forgotten after the bride’s parents voiced objections to the wedding.

Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins, ages 84 and 70, will be honored at an open house from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. today in the home of son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Jenkins, 1522 South 17th. Six of the honorees' seven children will be hosts.

A gold-and-white color scheme will be used in decorations for the reception. Punch and cake will be served from a table centered with a layout of California golden fruit. Over the mantel will be a large gold-and-white framed picture of the couple taken shortly after their wedding.

The Oklahoma pioneers were both born in Texas. Mr. Jenkins moved in 1890 to the site of what is now Marlow where he farmed and later served as City marshal. Mrs. Jenkins, then Julia Virginia Terry, moved with her family from Georgia to Marlow in January of 1901. Two and one-half months after their meeting, they were married.

Mr. Jenkins moved his family to Mountain View in 1910. But soon they were off to Vancouver, B. C., where Mr. Jenkins worked on the Canadian-Alaskan Highway project. When war broke out in 1914, they returned to Mountain View.

The family lived in Fort Cobb from 1921 until 1935. There also Mr. Jenkins farmed and served for a time as city marshal. Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins have lived in Chickasha since 1935, when Mr. Jenkins retired.

Mr. Jenkins is still quite active, but failing eyesight has slowed down his reading habits. However, a reading record machine has solved this problem pretty well. His main interest is his church work, and he takes a lively interest in world affairs. Both he and his wife are members of the 12th Street Missionary Baptist church.

Mrs. Jenkins is particularly interested in her flower garden and, of course, her grandchildren. Three who live in Chickasha, the children of the A. C. Jenkinses, "spend lots of time with us," she says, proudly. They are Carthel [Carthal] Trent, 13, Mike Thomas, 8, and Larhonda, 5.

Mrs. Jenkins says she and her husband have had a full and most interesting life together, although nothing spectacular has ever happened to them. She perhaps considers today as spectacular as any other day in their lives. For numerous daughters, sons, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other relatives and friends have descended upon Chickasha to honor them.

The six children who are their hosts for the day are Mrs. Mabel Hill and Miss Netheline Jenkins of Oklahoma City, Asa Jenkins of Anadarko, Mrs. Russell Boyd of Amarillo, Texas, Orville Jenkins of Quanah, Texas, and A. C. Jenkins of Chickasha. One other daughter, Mrs. Charles R. Henry [Hendron] of San Gabriel, Calif., was unable to come for the reunion.

Also here are daughter-in-law [Mrs.] Asa Lee Jenkins Jr [should be Asa Jenkins & should not be Jr] and son, grandson and family, Mr. and Mrs. Asa Lee Jenkins Jr [should not be Jr] and son Ronnie, Oklahoma City; son-in-law Russell Boyd and grandson and family, Mr. and Mrs. Charles K. Hill and son, Charles Mark, Amarillo.

Mrs. Cleve Christian, Chickasha, is the only one of Mr. Jenkins’ four children by a previous marriage who will be here for the anniversary observance. The other three are James E. Jenkins and B. J. Jenkins of Buena Park, Calif., and Mrs. Neil Yates of Aledo, Texas.

Four sisters and one brother of Mrs. Jenkins who are also here are: Mrs. W. C. Madison, Mrs. Elmer Wagnon, Mrs. Best [Bert] Lewis and Arthur Terry of Marlow, and Mrs. E. P. Hill of Duncan. Mrs. Annie Tabors, Mountain View, a niece of Mr. Jenkins, also will be present.

The listed relatives are only those who sent word they would join Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins in the celebration. But Mrs. Jenkins points out the possibilities for a larger group are great. For there are 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. In addition, Mr. Jenkins has 28 other grandchildren and 39 other great-grandchildren.

And then, of course, there is a 50 year accumulation of friends.

They were still resident at the same address. But it became necessary for them to move into a nursing care facility. The exact date of their move is not known. Joe and Jennie had been residents in the Chickasha Nursing Home, Chickasha, Grady, Oklahoma, for some time before Joe's death in 1962.

His obituary reports that Joe had been in poor health for three years, meaning back to 1959. But in the 1959 and 1960 city directories, they were still listed at their address on 20th Street. No documentation has been found on exactly when they were moved in to the Chickasha Nursing Home.

I remember visiting them there on occasion, when our family would visit Chickasha from our Texas home. I was also present there when Pappa Joe died. I remember my father and some of his siblings being in the upstairs room with their father, while we waited downstairs. Joe was not fully conscious at that time, as I remember.

Funeral Services were held on Thursday, 4 April 1962, at the Sevier Funeral Home in Chickasha, with burial following in Fairlawn Cemetery, Hwy 81 North in Chickasha.
