  • Notes 
    • 1882 History of Linn County, Missouri - BIOGRAPHY. Benton Township, page 766.
      James D. Jenkins is a native of Ohio, and was born in Marion county, August 25, 1829. He is the son of David and Magdalena (nee Reinhart) Jenkins, the former of whom was a native of Pennsylvania, and the latter, of Ohio. His father had been a merchant in Ohio and continued there till James was about nine years old, when he moved to Missouri, and, after a temporary sojourn in Howard county, moved to Linn county and settled in what is now Benton township. This was in 1838, and the family became a fixture in this county. James lived with his parents till he was twenty-four years of age, and then on the first of September, 1853, he married Sarah T. Cassity. They have had five children, three of whom, two sons and one daughter, are deceased. Mr. Jenkins lived in the suburbs of Browning from 1856 till 1865, when he moved to the northwest part of section twenty-nine, township sixty, range twenty, in sight of the place his father had settled years before. Mr. Jenkins and wife are members of the Christian Church, but he does not belong to any secret order. His mother died December 3, 1864, and his father, March 13, 1871. He has a well improved farm with good residence and new barn, and other improvements to correspond.
