Charles Jenks (December 13, 1764 to February 3, 1845) - Born in Smithfield, Providence, Rhode Island, of Edmund Jenks and Keziah Olney. He married Joanna Scott on July 15, 1792 in Adams, Berkshire, Massachusetts. Together they had thirteen children. They resided in Adams, Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

 

Joanna Scott (b. 1771 to April 4, 1856) Daughter of Sylvanus Scott and Jerusha Brown. *An interesting side note - Joanna Scott was the great great granddaughter of Joseph Jenks and Esther Ballard. (Joseph Jenks-> Joanna Jenckes-> Nathaniel Scott-> Sylvanus Scott-> Joanna Scott). This would have made Johanna and Charles distant cousins.
