Okay - I think I've found some of my Daisy Stone Jenks stuff:
From the Jan 4, 1912 Empire: Jenks and Daisy married at the home of her
uncle, Joe L. Stone of Hubbard City, Texas. The item also says that
Daisy is a cousin to Mrs. M.P. Kiker (who taught music) of Stephenville
and that she had made many friends in Stephenville when visiting. [Daisy
would have been about 33 at the time of their marriage...Jenks was much
older, in fact, about 30 at the time of his first marriage ca 1880. I
have a photo of him 1912-1915; a photo of their home on W. Green Street
taken in 1914; one of Jenks with Chris (Daisy's first daughter); one of
Daisy's girls when they are ca 2 & 5; one of Daisy holding Christine at
one year--this baby was named for Jenks' first wife.]
From various issues of the Tribune dated March, April & May of 1912:
Daisy had cousins to visit...Miss Vista Stone of Hubbard and Miss
Sadie/Sodie Stone of Hubbard.
In the Feb 9th 1912 Tribune there was a nice obit for Daisy's father,
G.W. Stone (which I could transcribe if you'd like.)
After G.W. Jenks' death in the 1920s, Daisy moved to Colorado (ca 1930)
to be near Jenks' older daughters but in Aug of 1936 she came to
Stephenville for a visit. She was suffering from appendicitis and died
(while trying to make arrangements to send her youngest daughter Sue
Frances Jenks to Tarleton College).
Her obit dated 18 Sep 1936 in the Empire Tribune, (once again if you
want the whole thing I could photocopy this one), indicates that she
first came to Stephenville in 1908 to take over music classes for her
cousin Mrs. Melville P. Kiker, stayed a year and then returned to
Alabama. Her obit names her surviving siblings as H.M. Stone of Houston;
Milton Stone of Auburn AL; Dr. John Stone of Birmingham AL; Mrs. J.T.
Patillo of La Grange GA; Mrs. T.K. Roberts of Columbiana AL; and two
brothers who died several years ago: Frank and Will Stone. Other
relatives attending the funeral were Mrs. Rosa Stone Kirkpatrick of
Mart; Mrs. Vista Stone McClain of Austin; Mrs. F.G. Armstrong of
Hubbard, Mrs. Melville P. Kiker of Breckenridge, and Mrs. Claud Fewell
I also have a few items about Jenks' bachelorhood, especially
immediately preceding his marriage to Daisy...so although the paper
never mentions her in connection with him (I don't think) apparently the
competing paper wasn't above poking a little fun at Jenks (and several
other bachelors around town.) There is a mention of a trip he made to
Alabama ...but for the life of me I cannot find these items today.
I hope there is some clues in here that you can use.
