Seeking information on Wesley Preston JENNINGS who came to Newton Co. abt. 1840 and married Rebecca Jane SHORT. They had 13 children, all but 3 were born in Newton Co. Mo.
Wesley and Rebecca were married in Jasper Co. Mo. on 14 Dec. 1843.
Wesley may be the brother of Henderson JENNINGS, who was Sheriff of Newton Co. 1852-53.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. Please feel free to e-mail me.

I saw your posting on Rebecca Jane Short and I have been looking for a person with that name who married William Harris in 1824 in Indiana. I assume it is not the same person, but have you any knowledge of any Shorts in Indiana. Her brother, probably, Adam signed marriage bonds. Would appreciate your response. Thanks. Janet

Rebecca Short in the 1850 census of Newton CO. was born abt 1799 in TN or KY. Apparently she married in Illinois as her daughter, Elizabeth Short, was born in 1819 ILL. Elizabeth Short married first to Dudley Fuller. They had 2 known children. Rebecca Fuller, born abt 1840, before Dudley Fuller died in 1845. Mary Fuller was born 2 months after her father died. By 1850 Elizabeth Short was Elizabeth Yandell. In 1860 her husband is Willis Yandell and the Fuller Girls are living with them. Elizabeth Short Fuller Yandell is buried in Wells Valley Cemetery, near Bromide, Oklahoma. No dates on her stone, just E. Yandell. All of Rebecca Short's children are not known as some were married before 1850 census. Who was Rebecca's husband? Any data on family appreciated. Will be glad to exchange data. Thanks. Loretta Davis

Please forgive my error. Rebecca Jane was the daughter of Wesley Preston Jennings and Rebecca Margret Short.

Rebecca Jane b. 18 Apr. 1844 Newton Co. d. 17 May 1974 Cleveland Co. OK.

Agnes b. abt. 1846 Newton Co. Mo d. before 1878

Henderson "Henry" Jennings b. abt. 1848 Newton Co. d. unk.

Elizabeth "Betty" Jennings b. abt. 1849 Newton Co. d. est. 19? probably Waco T

Pauline Paralee b. abt. 1853 Newton Co. d. ?

Granville C. Jennings b. 15 Oct .1854 Newton co. Mo d. 14 Aug. 1938 Wynnewood, Garvin, OK.

William "Bill" Jennings ca. 1856 Newton Co. d. ca. 1901

John Jennings b. abt. 1858 Newton Co. d. pr. bef 1878

Mary Ellen b. 12 Jan 1861 Newton Co. d. 26. Mar 1912

Margret ca. 1864 Newton Co. d. ca. 1876

Hugh J. "Bud" Jennings b. 21 June 1865 Bonham Fannin Co. TX. d.?

Laura Bell b. 11 Nov. 1868 Grapevine Tarrant Tx. d. 9 Jan 1970 Lexington Pot. Co. oK.

James Preston Jennings b. ca. 1870 Bonham Fannin Co. Tx. d. ?

Wesley Preston Jennings was b. abt. 1825 probably Grayson Co. Va d. 1874 Probably Grayson Co. TX.

He and Rebecca Margaret moved to Grayson Co. TX. Ca. 1862

(source: Roy and Mary Katschke, 14413 NE 185th Battle Ground WA. 98604-9254)

Wesley and Rebecca Margaret were married 14 Dec. 1843 Jasper, MO. (source: IGI Church of Latter Day Saints record, bathch 7122129, source call no. 053877

I and others have been trying to connect Wesley with my GGGrandfather, Henderson Jennings . They both were in Newton County the same time until sometime between 1864-65 when Wesley took his wife and children and moved to Bonham Fannin co. TX. I am trying to trace back through the decendants of Wesley and Rebecca Margaret SHORT JENNINGS to see if anyone has any information that might connect these two men.
We do not know the parentage of either Wesley or Henderson, but John J. Jennings, appears to be a name that carries through both of their families and also the fact that Wesley had a son named Henderson, leads me to believe thier may be a connection.
Would like to share information with you.
