    Biography
    • BIOGRAPHY: After his wife died in 1899, David Jenkins took care of his children financially, but wasn't around much between 1900 and 1921 while they were growing up. His work was out of the area, and sometimes out of state. He and his son Herbert were not in agreement on goals and education. His final parting with his son was in a hospital during David's final illness. David threatened to disinherit him and told him to leave. Herbert looked back to see his father in tears.
