I also have a book of Swain County Marriages, 1871 - 1905. I looked through the Jenkins marriages and found several who may be the children of your ancestors:

Jenkins, John, 20, son of Elix and Alice Jenkins of Georgia to Sarah Rose, 30, daughter of Jno and Elizabeth Jenkins on Jan. 28, 1894. Performed by H.A. Cunningham, Alaka Creek. A Cocherham, George Cocherham and Jesse Upton, wit.

Jenkins, Phillip, 30, of Graham Co., son of John and Elizabeth Jenkins of Graham Co., to Sutena Stiles, 18, daughter of Rebecca Stiles, on Nov. 12, 1893. Performed by C. Calhoun at Elizabeth Stiles' on Forney Creek. A Calhoun, J. Crisp and L. Myers, wit.

Jenkins, Ulyses Grant, 21, son of John and Elizabeth Jenkins (both living)of Swain, to M. Catherine Gibby, daughter of Elisha and Mary Gibby (both living) of Swain, on July 27, 1887. Performed by D. Lester, Justice of the Peace, at John Jenkins' residence, Nantahala. John Jenkins, Elizabeth Jenkins and Nancy Jenkins, wit.

Smith, Andrie, 35, son of Samual and Rebia Smith of Carrol Co., Ga, to M. S. Jenkins, 18, daughter of Jno and Elizabeth Jenkins, on Jan. 25, 1894. Performed by H.H. Hyde, Nantahala. W. H. Hyde, H. D. Painter and Nancy Jenkins, wit.

Hyde, William Harvey, 30, of Swain, son of J.B. and Jennie Hyde (both living) of Swain, to Mollie Jenkins, 28, of Swain, daughter of John and Elizabeth Jenkins (both living) of Swain, on Aug 25, 1885. Performed by J.M. Earls, Minister of the Gospel, at John Jenkins' at Nantahala. L.J.Hyde, S.G.Bayns and W.S. Jenkins, wit.

Green, Adaneah Judson, 19, of Swain, to Samantha Myra Jenkins, 18, of Swain, on March 18, 1880. Performed by D. Dehart, Justice of the Peace at John Jenkins'. J.D. Jenkins, William Brendle, and J.W.R. Cline, wit.

Panther, James C., 21, of Swain, to Sarah Jenkins, 19, of Swain, on Jan 7, 1877. Performed by J.L.Tomasson, Justice of the Peace, at John Jenkins', Nantahala Twsp. Cling Nations, W.H.Thomasson and J. Jenkins, wit.

There are a number of others where the parents are not listed. I would suggest that you consider going to the Swain County Genealogical Society in Bryson City, NC (to their website) and look at the books offered. They are great books and great people to do business with. I have both Baines and Jenkins in my line but don't see a connection at this time. You may contact me directly at if you would like more assistance.
