Notes for Lucinda Amanda Jenkins: The name varied in different sections of Harold K Chistian's Jenkins Family History as Amanda Lucinda or Lucinda Amanda. In the 1910 census she is listed as Amanda L, which seems to indicate that Amanda was the first name. In 1930 she is listed as Mandy M, which I cannot figure out.
A comment by her daughter Annie Christian Tabor refers to her as Amanda Lucinda. -- R Christian GED Notes, Cited in J Epperson Genealogy, miscellaneous comments by Annie Christian Tabor.
In the 1860 census all children were listed by initials only; she was listed as L. In the 1880 census she was listed simply as Lucinda. Her nickname was "Mandy" which might indicate the primary (first?) name was Amanda. I have noticed, however, that there is a common pattern in this Jenkins line to call children by their SECOND name, rather than the first. Epperson Family Genealogy records her name as Lucinda Amanda.
I have not found her and father Joseph Sanford Jenkins' family in the 1870 census. They were apparently out of the state after the death of Joseph's wife Lucinda Amanda in 1869. Perhaps they were traveling and were not recorded in the census of any state. We know that Joseph Sanford's wife Amanda Lucinda Taylor died about 1869. It appears that the family were away from Cass County for a period of about 2 years. Joseph Sanford married Louisa Taylor Christian in February 1872.
Nieces and nephews called her Aunt Mandy.
In 1930, she is living in the same household as her daughter Anna Christian Tabor and her husband Roy and their family. Mandy is listed with a separate family number:
1930 Federal Census, Washita County, Oklahoma, 15 April, Oakdale Township, District 17, page 9A, Hse #155, Fam #166 Roy Tabor Head M W 34 TX TX TX Farmer Anna Tabor Wife F W 31 TX Miss Miss
Hse #155, Fam #167 Mandy M Christian Head F W 67 Miss Miss Miss Farmer [Middle initial M is a puzzle]
This census reports that Amanda was born in Mississippi, rather than Georgia as other censuses have said. It also reports Mississippi as the birth state not only for her mother, but for her father, who was born in South Carolina.
