  • Notes 
    • Zenas is recorded sometimes as Zenas T. and sometimes as Zenas I.Tennyson. We believe his middle name was Ignatious. According toPushmataha County Cemeteries, Zenas is buried in the Antlers Cemeterynext to his wife and near his daughter. For reasons not at all clear,in the 1910 Pushmataha Co., OK census, Zenas is ennumerated as Jessie. This could be a transcription error since a transcription rather thanthe actual record was viewed.
