Bio and Links
I was born in Bonham, Fannin, Texas where my Jenkins Family had lived since about 1856 starting with GGGrandparents, Wilburn and Catherine Jenkins. I descend from one of their son's, Hezekiah W. and Jane Ann Stephens Jenkins.
One of their son's, Ellis Allen Jenkins married Daisy Elizabeth Fox of the Joseph and Rachael Fox family. My father was born in 1907 to Ellis and Daisy. Daisy Fox Jenkins died in 1910 when my father was 3 yrs. old. My quest is to find any information I can about the Fox and the Jenkins Families of Fannin Co. Texas. The Fox families came from Jackson Co. Tennessee and the Jenkins Families from Madison Co. Alabama while the Stephen Family came from Benton, Tennessee. I live in Lincoln, California and will enjoy any help or getting to know anyone who are members of these wonderful American Pioneers. Betty Jenkins Ollas 14 June 2010

RE: Emmerilla J. Fox McBroom
You are so welcome. Still hard to believe my DNA only matches the East TX McBrooms and not the TN/NC bunch. Have you seen Derl Williams 1991 BOOK, Family History of Williams-Eaton-McBroom-Whiteley? I own a copy. The picture is on page 342. For years and years my Louisiana family thought that was our GGPa McBroom! Doug

You are very welcome. This is the reason Nan and I work on Find A Grave. We love it when people find their relatives.

Would you like for me to transfer him to you?

Fox Family of Tennessee
Hi Betty:

Jackson County, Tennessee is where my Gore family came from and my great aunt, Emma Williams married William Bryant Fox. Emma's mother was Elizah Jane Gore and she lived in Jackson Co., TN as well as all her Gore Family. I've just added Elizah's picture and some information on her daughter, Emma Williams, and and her husband, William Bryant Fox - all buried in the Dodd City Cemetery, TX.

I was surprised to find that the Fox Family came from Jackson Co., TN. The Fox and Gore Families, no doubt, knew one another in Tennessee. Email me at < Clydene
