Cathy Pierce The Jenkins end of this tree of mine, has confusing branches. (My Mom & Aunt says) Grandpa JOSEPH S. JENKINS never got over the teen death of his sister SALLY. His daughter PEARL ALBINA JENKINS lived to be over 90some and I talked to her many times about certain events, but there are gaps. JOSEPH S. JENKINS m.PHEBE ELIZABETH McMURRY (Where?) They came from Missouri to Kansas- Oklahoma , granny remembered walking most of the way (she was around 7), they alternated wagon rides from day to day...had to stop a few times due to flooded rivers. After settling in N Woods Co, OK they more children....(these are the ones I recall) PEARL ALBINA, GEORGE, ALICE MAY, EDNA, MOLLY, SALLY. (I kind of remember there being a BELLE also). In 1899 PEARL ALBINA JENKINS m JOHN KERLEY HOOD JR (spelling came straight from the horses wifes mouth),they had LOREN, WAYNE, DELBERT, DALE, FRANCES MARIE, GRACE KATHERINE HOOD b.1919,(hope Im not forgetting anyone). They also had a stillborn child, unnamed. Supposedly Joseph was with his brothers (?), when they were making the Cherokee Strip Landrun, but I have no proof yet. The area they "Ran" to was just over the border, so some records may say Kiowa Ks for one thing, and Woods Co OK for others (neither being far from the homesteads). MOLLY JENKINS was BEAUTIFUL (mom is currently trying to find her photo again). She married Bert Jones nearby, and within a short time a tornado went over their farm, and they lost their house. PEARL ALBINA HOOD went to a church function as a teen and locked eyes with JOHN KERLEY HOOD Jr , she "fell in love" right then. At one time JOHN K HOOD's brother LUKE lived near CARRIE NATION , and introduced her to the family and they all got close over time. After one of CARRIE's big smash up at Hardtner , or Kiowa KS, she went out to my families homestead to hideout. Grandma was mad cause she couldnt sleep with the singing and praying going on in the next room. Granny HOOD was a fussy budget at times...."EDNA was a poet and always walking around with her nose in a book or writing poetry instead of doing her work!"...which bothered granny HOOD, she was always a busy house worker. Her father JOHN K HOOD Jr got dropsie and died at home. My Grandma GRACE KATHERINE HOOD told me when her "papa died, she was outside, the clouds parted and sun shone down on the house , just as he died..she knew his suffering was over". By this time PEARL A JENKINS HOOD had also lost her mother PHEBE ELIZABETH MCMURRY, and her father JOSEPH S JENKINS had remarried a younger woman named JULIA. <1920 Census FRITZLEN OK confirms>. PEARL JENKINS HOOD eventually moved into town, ALVA OK, and her grown youngest son continued the farming for a time. PEARL raised GRACE KATHERINE HOODS daughters in Alva OK- . Pearl died 27 Dec 1979 in Alva OK, but buried in KIOWA KS. Questions remain, What is the middle name for JOSEPH S JENKINS MO? DOES ANYONE HAVE JENKINS PHOTOS TO SHARE? Who exactly were the brothers who homesteaded for Joseph?? Who where PHEBE E McMURRAY's parents ? (sp?) Please email if you can share some more info on these people. Cathy catzlaw1@yahoo.com

Cathy Pierce This is a true story.... Long Johns & Buckshot "What do you want to be when you grow up Glenda?" Pearl Jenkins Hood asked her young granddaughter. "I want to be a singing star...and I want to fly someday, just like the airplane we saw last month!" Little blonde haired Melva said, "Gramma, I want to be a Mommy!" The Girls made the old woman smile, she wiped her hands on her apron, they had finished their baths and the bathwater still needed to be dumped. "Now you girls get in bed, put your gum on the bed post" Both girls took a wad of chewing gum out of their mouths and stuck it on the headboard. "Will Uncle Delbert be home from training soon?" The grandmother got a faraway look out of the window, "He should be home for a visit any day now." She walked to the window and looked out into the night...faintly she could see a movement in the yard. It frightened her. Her eyes squinted and her mouth puckered up. "GIRLS, STAY IN BED!" she was as stern as she had ever been with her granddaughters. Pearl headed towards the door where the shotgun rested behind the door. She peered out the door and yelled "Who is out there?! I've got a gun!....." Glenda jumped out of bed and little Melva soon followed... they ran to their granny's side. They could see the Silhouette of a man standing there, between the clotheslines. "Now, go on! I ain't got no money! Go on or I'll shoot!" The old woman raised the shotgun and gave a final warning.... then shot the gun into the night at the figure, and it dropped to the ground. The 2 girls' jaws dropped, and Pearl slammed the door shut, bolted and locked it tight with a buttlerknife jammed in the door. They could barely breath...the old house wasn't too much better than a cabin. No electricity. No Plumbing. The lanterns threw mystical things into the dark corners it shed. The boards on the floor creaked as Pearl lead the 2 frightened girls back to bed. The next morning Pearl was very surprised when her son Delbert opened his bedroom door and came out. "Whyyy Glory Be to Jesus!!! My son is home again!!!" "I got back yesterday, the war efforts can do without me before I get shipped out, now where are those Long Johns I hung on the line when I got here last night?" Without missing a beat, sweet Pearl said "Let's hope you fair better in the War than your long johns did at home! They are out there full of buckshot!" “I’m just thankful I wasn’t in them!” he laughed, soon Pearl was laughing, as well as Glenda and Melva.They didn’t know what the future held, but that moment bonded them all.
