I have a letter addressed to my Great uncle, Albert Jenkins signed from "your uncle H.H. Keech. Through census records I discovered that Laura's brother was my Great-Great Grandfather, James Jenkins, Civil War Vet whom we were unsuccessful in finding his parents, Benajah and Allatheur Jenkins, until now. I am now looking for his father's name. His mother's name is listed as "Bowen".
If I didn't have this letter, I never would have found the connection
