  • Name Anson Witherell Jenkins 
    Born 17 Jun 1858  Scituate, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
    • Also seen as Jun 1855.

      Listed as 1 year old in 1860 Census. Mason's Membership card says 1858. Birth record in town list says 1857, but it's mixed in with some other delayed recording. Could be 1856, could be 1857, could be 1858. I tend to believe 1858 since it fits with all of the census records.
