Email from Ret'd Chief Howard F. Knight, Jr. (wobanaki@kingcon.com) to (mskwmagw@yahoo.com) Douglas Lloyd Buchholz a.k.a. Mark Douglas Leckie (Douglas Lloyd Buchholz which is my Birth given name>Mark Douglas Kingsley which was my 1st Adoptive name July 17, 1972>Mark Douglas Leckie which was my 2nd Adoptive name October 07, 1979 >Salmon Raven Deer which I legally changed my name to on September 25, of 1991 - all in Port Angeles, WA). "0639 hours EDT 29 April 2005. Kwai Kwai Mr. Leckie, I see by your letter wherein you discuss the families in the Danville-Morrisville/Morristown area. Also, you too have your problems with the "selectiveness" of Swanton and Odenak as to who is and is not Abenaki. You are not alone and I have said little to anyone outside my family though I could say much, especially since I have ties to the same areas and even further back, right back to the 1750's and 60's in Swnaton, Dunham, Lower Coos and elsewhere. I even have the original Abenaki family names at Dunham-Swanton, as well as the at The Oxbow at Lower Coos and some other lines.
I always wondered as to why when there was a ruckus in Danville (before the Town Hall burned in one of the many mysterious Town Hall fires of the time and the records of the town were lost) that certain families lined up with others against some others why the inicident was known around the area.
I now know why, from your remarks, the Woodward/Woodard family was aligned with my father's family, the Knight's, Gear-Giguere, Caswell, Tanner's, the Silsby's, Drown's and several other families on a list that I have that I got from the old Town of Danville Board of Selectmen, the Town Constable and some others. The details are sketchy but it was a real nasty situation at the time.
Also, your remarks no give me the clue as to why and how the Eugenics people went after my father and the family right after he and my mother  married in 1937 (on June 01, 1937 in Derby, Orleans County, Vermont); because this Eugenics lady picked up on my family from the alignment of families in the ruckus in Danville.
If you are living in the Vermont or greater New England area, as I.....

Do forgive the large font usesd but I am going blind (service-connected) and I am legally blind now and have been for the past 5 years. I don't even drive for that reason. Until later, You take care and do treat yourself well and the Creator watch over you and protect you and yours.
Respectfully Yours,
Howard Franklin Knight, Jr.

Lea Mitchell was looking for John Jenkins of New York on the Jenkins Family Genealogy Forum. I am a direct descendant of John Jenkins you seek information on.

They came to Chateaugay after 1840 but by 1850 maybe via Canada. Kids all born in Ireland were John, Charles H., Ralph and Eliza. Daughter Mary born after in New York. Their son John married Rozilla (nee; Sargent) and had as their last child another John who married married Leta Leona (nee: Hill) and they had Leon Royce Jenkins who married to Marion (nee: Waterman) Cook and they had Madalene (nee: Jenkins) who is my mother and still alive.
