He was the only son of Gen.Charles Jencks and Rachel Benson Jencks. His parents separated. His father married Martha Mowry and had several children by her. His mother married Jesse Albee and had several children by him. I could find nothing on where Gen.Charles, Rachel, or any other step-siblings or step-parents were buried. But Gen.Charles Jencks removed to Warehouse Point, Hartford Co.,CT. Rachel and Jesse Albee remained in Mendon.
