    Notes 
    • Hmmmm. In the 1850 US Census, in the same location (Breton Township, Washington County, Missouri) there is a George A. Jinkerson family. George was born abt 1794 in Pennsylvania. Remembering that William was 29, the children of George listed in the household range in age from 13 to 23. Is George the father of William? Maybe, maybe not. I also found marriage record for George, marrying Jane Simpson on 31 Aug 1828 in Washington County (7 years after William was born). There is, however, a marriage record for George Jenkerson marrying Elizabeth Copling in 1819 in Howard County, Missouri. It also appears that George was in Washington County in 1840, and a George Jimmerson is also shown in Breton Township in 1830. There's also some tantalizing William Jenkins/Jenkinson that received a land pension from service in the Revolutionary War.
