My great grandfather Jeremiah JENKINS was married to Melvina HYDE, daughter of Benjamin HYDE. This would have taken place in [the present-day boundaries of] Swain County.
According to a questionaire dated 4 Aug 1898 in his pension records, Jeremiah stated he had married Melvina [no date given] and that she had died in the Bryson City, NC, area.
Mary JENKINS, Jeremiah's widow, in her application for a widow's pension, dated 20 May 1901, stated that Jeremiah had married Melvina HYDE and that she died on 29 March 1859.
Would you have the date of their marriage?
Thanks Jack Jay Jenkins
