Were they brothers? Or did they have the same teacher?


John and Zachariah Jenkins signed a statement in the 1852 bounty land application of Clarissa Lake in Mercer and Washington Counties in Kentucky.
Does it look like they had the same teacher for their handwriting? They look very similar. I'm not certain what the relationship is between the two men, who shared the same last name as the widow's maiden name.
Casefile Clues 51 doesn't answer the sibling question for these two--we're focused on the bounty land application.
Subscribe now and see what's in a typical widow's bounty land application for the War of 1812. Issue 51 will be distributed in the next several days.
