More Jenkins mysteries
It has been a while since I last posted on here and have now come up with some more brickwalls, I would be grateful is anyone could have a look and give me their comments.
On the 1911 Census I have my maternal great grandmother Hannah Dodd living with her daughter Violet and it says Sarah Jeakins (this has now been checked and it should say Jenkins).
One could/would assume that this Sarah Jenkins could be related to my maternal grt grandmother in some way as Hannah Dodd was the mother in law of my grandfather James Jenkins. The address for the census is Arkwright Street.
I then found a marriage for Violet Dodd in 1911 to Thomas Robinson and the witnesses to the marriage are Joseph and Mary Jenkins (I dont think they were married as there is a marriage below for Joseph), again I think there must be a connection with Hannah Dodd the mother in law of my grandfather James Jenkins (his father also called James according to his marriage cert).
I have now also found a Marriage for a Sarah Jane Jenkins in 1914 to Henry Donaldson in Liverpool. One of the witnesses to this marriage was a Joseph Jenkins.
Then there is a marriage for Joseph Jenkins in 1915 to Florence Hogan - I have information on Florence but none on the Joseph she married.
My big problem is I think that Sarah and Joseph (both have the father called James, a carter) and Mary could be possible bros and sisters of my grandfather but as I cannot find his birth I am not sure, also cannot find a birth for Sarah or Sarah Jane with a father called James
My last post on here was on Mersey brickwalls and I am not sure if I should have made this entry at the bottom of the last one, still not quite sure how it works - sorry
My Grandfather was Called James Jenkins and my Grandmother was Henrietta, they came from Arkwright street area off Netherfield Rd.
My Mum was Ada with brothers Thomas and William.
I know their were other relatives around this area as well, hopes this helps.
Get back to me if it does.
I have the 1911 Census for your grandfather and it is not the same James - just wish someone out there did know him. I don't even know at this stage if he had any brothers or sister only that his children were John Joseph, Joseph Arthur, James, Charlotte, Violet, and my father Charles. He did have a still born and two that died Elizabeth and Thomas.
As know one left to ask it is getting very difficult, as my cousins still in Liverpool dont seem to know as much as me

.... in 1901 they are transcribed as Junkin!
RG13; Piece: 3428; Folio: 36; Page: 18.
Address: 142 Wolfe Street
James 42 Carter
Sarah Ann 45
Patrick Gill 14, nephew
No sign of Joseph or young Sarah Ann in any of the three census returns, so perhaps they could be cousins!

Thank you but I already have all these, the ones in Wolfe Street their James married Annie Reynolds in 1910 so not the right James. As you say they could have been related
