The Richard Jinkins Family Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

I am trying to trace the Jinkins family back to Europe. At this point I have found my great great grandfather, Edwin B. Jinkins, in Missouri in the 1850 census. He was born in North Carolina in 1819. I do not have an exact date or location. Also, I do not have his parents names nor the names of any brothers or sisters. Edwin married Elizabeth Ray in Arkansas on October 24, 1848. They were the parents of 15 children between 1849 and 1874.

I am going out on a limb by thinking that the first male child was named using Edwin's and Elizabeth's fathers first names. The childs name was Thomas William Jinkins. Elizabeth's fathers name was William Ray. Thus I am surmising that Edwin's fathers name was Thomas Jinkins.

Any help is tracing the Jinkins into North Carolina and possibly Europe would be greatly appreciated.
