The life of John Jenkins parallels that of many restless American pioneers who settled West Virginia. He was born in Bedford County, Virginia, served in the Revolutionary War and then moved on to Greenbrier and Kanawha Counties in present-day West Virginia, then moved east to the part of Montgomery County, Virginia, that became Giles County. He died in 1830 and is buried in Fayette County, West Virginia. A great deal of research was done – especially in county seat records - to try to determine his many moves, yet a clear picture just barely emerges.
