GREENUP JENKINS BIBLE
The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments stereotyped by James Conner for the American Bible
Society, New York, 1828. (contributed by Nancye Powell Ison)
No entries mention Alfords but note at end of listings:
A number of names written inside book, including:
John Richard Beegle
Lucinda M. Beegle
Mary Beegle, January 15, 1834
AAFA NOTES:According to the Bible record, Greenup Jenkins married Mary Ellen _____ who was born March 4, 1812.
WAS SHE AN ALFORD? AAFA does not recognize this family. Several Jenkins-Alford marriages occurred in
Kentucky in the families of Jacob and Charles Alford of Mercer and Garrard Counties. But if John and
Elizabeth Alford were a couple, these KY families don't fit. If anyone can make the connection here,
please let us know.
