Can anyone help me with the early 1600s JENKS family which resided near Boston MA or Kingstown RI?

I presume I found a book there either about this family or one of the related families that listed it. Although I did not write down all my sources, I did most of my research in the New York Public Library in Manhattan at 42 St. 5 Ave. and some more in the Brooklyn Historical Society (formerly the Long Island Historical Society) in Brooklyn Heights NY.

My line of descent is: ("c." means "circa" or "about")

Joseph Jenks (b.c.1628-32) m. Esther Ballard
Elizabeth Jenks/Jencks (b.1658 - d.1740) m. Samuel Tefft (b.1644 RI - d.1725)
Susannah Tefft (b.youngest) m. 1705 Peter Crandall (b.c.1685 Kingstown RI)
Samuel Crandall (b.1706/7 Kingstown RI ) m. Mary _____
George Crandall (b. 29 May 1739/41) m. 1761
Tacy Tanner (b. 22 Jul 1742)
Tanner Crandall (b. 1 Apr 1784 NY) m. NY #2 Susannah Hall (b.1798)
Hannah Brakeman Crandall (21 Mar 1818) m. NY Richmond Lake (b. 4 Mar 1816)
Sarah Jane Lake (b. 11 Dec 1847) m. MI Crayton Hail Sigerfoos (b. 1 Jun 1848)

Hi,"M" - Guess you are a DISTANT cousin. I have same linage as you for the top two names. Samuel Tefft and Elizabeth Jenckes had a son John (b.c.1678). John married Joanna Sprague in 1698, my line comes down from there.
I have a lot more info on Joseph, Esther Ballard, Samuel Tefft

I accidentally typed in the name Elizabeth connected with Joseph. It really IS Esther.

I am a ancestor of the Joseph Jenks that came here from England on or around the same time as Mayflower. If interested I can get more details, since my mother is doing my fathers family tree.
