HANNAH (HUESTIS) JENKS) was born 14 Oct 1822 at Sackets Harbor, Town
of Hounsfield, Jefferson County.  He became a lawyer and also a farmer when
he and his wife arrived in Wisconsin.  Their son also became a lawyer and was
an Iowa county judge for 50 years and Grand Master of Masons in Wisconsin in
1896.  Two other of his sons, Maxwell and Franklin, also became lawyers and
also became Grand Masters of Masons in Wisconsin.  I'm trying to find what
Alonzo's father and Grandfather did for a living.  He died 11 May 1890 at
Darlington, Lafayette County, Wisconsin, and was buried there 13 May.

MATILDA BARKER was born 14 Jul 1823 at Shelfanger, Northrop, England. 
She came to America in 1830 and settled in New York.  Her parents eventually
joined the Mormon church and traveled west in 1848 settling in Ogden, Utah in
1849.  Matilda was a school teacher, as was Alonzo, and was engaged to Alonzo
before the rest of the Barker family became Mormons and moved west, so she
stayed in NY but soon moved with her husband to Darlington, WI.  She died 23
Mar 1902 at Darlington.
