To this union was born Isaac Jenkins, Nancy Mrrs, Pricilla Nugen, Betsy Authur, Mrs. Wilson, Uriah, William and some others. John Jenkins and family came to this part of the state when Indians infested the country. They lived in a fort somewhere between Cabin Creek and Charleston sometime near 1793-4 or 5. When Isaac Jenkins was about 14 years of age, he used to guard the fort with the women, while the men went out to hunt. About 1800 they, with some other families, moved up Cabin Creek, it being the first creek along the Kanawha River to be settled. About that time, Isaac Jenkins, eldest son of Elizabeth Huddleston and John Jenkins was to be married. As they were preparing for the marriage feast, the men all went out hunting for their winter meat and wild turkey for the wedding feast. Betsy Jenkins was preparing to make a bed tick of fine linnen for the bridge to be, but her flax was damp and as she was in a hurry, she put the flax up over the fire to dry to make it spin fine. But Alas; the flax caught fire and burned the house down. However, Betsy was much braver than some of her granddaughters I have known. She turned the sheep out of the sheep house, put her children in there, built a fire in front of the door and toojk her riffle and guarded the sheep from the wolves, (which were bad in those days) until the men came home. Lyle Burdette, my grandson of Duffy Street, has that rifle now. He being a grandson of Betsy's six times removed. That was not enough to stop a wedding in those days, so Isaac Jenkins married Nancy Martin, daughter of John Martin who was a brother of Daniel Huddleston wife. (Note: John Martin should be Job Martin-Janet Martin August 1999) To Nancy Martin and Isaac Jenkins were born three children. One died in infancy, one daughter Rachel died in 1825. She was the first to be buried in the Cemetery on the hill overlooking Deepwater Depot. The cemetery is named for her. Eldest daughter if Isaac and Nancy Martin Jenkins married Cary Tinsley Boatwright in 1825. To this union was born two daughters. The youngest Nancy died in 1829 aged six months.

Settle is living at this date, 1931. ---------------------------- Joseph Huddleston, son of Abraham Huddleston came to this part of the country soon after the Revolution. He lived in a fort as the Indians were so bad people couldn't live on separaye farms. Men in those days hunted and trapped for their meat and they had to go in companies, like soldiers, for fear of Indians. It was on an occasion of this kind that they recaptured a Miss Watts of the Charleston Watts, a bonny lass who had been the wife of Indidan Chief. As the "Pale Face" regarded not the matrimonial laws of the Red Man and Joseph Huddleston being a single man there started a romance right away and they were married. A child was born to this union, Joseph Huddleston Jr. Joseph Huddleston's name sake lived in Montgomery and is still unwed. Joseph Huddleston Jr., married a Miss Montgomery, daughter of Henry Montgomery (commonly called Major). To this union was born several children.

The body of Joseph Huddleston 71, of Washington Street, Montgomery was found floating in the Kanawha River at the mouth of Morris Creek here today. He had been missing since Tuesday night. Corp. C. T. Taylor if the State Police said $189. In currency was found in Huddleston's pockets. The body was discovered by the 18 years old Ethel Musie. When he failed to appear for supper at the home of a brother A. Huddleston, a search was started for the elderly man. The $189 is believed to have represented rent collection. Juseph Huddleston owned several pieces of property. Corp. Taylor believed Huddleston may have falled accidentally into the creek from a Railroad Bridge. The body was taken to the M.C. White Mortuary.

A widow and sic children survive him. Huddleston was operating a motor in the mine and was knocked off the motor when a trap door failed to open. (E.C.M.'s nephew) Z.T. Huddleston's son and grandson of Nathan Huddleston. Note from Lawrence M. Huddleston-The data on these pages was complied by Edna Huddleston Clark Morton, daughter of Nathan and Sarah E Huddleston. Born February 4, 1854. Married Richard Daniel Clark, January 2, 1873. Some additions and corrections have been made; for instance Henry Huddleston, the ancestopr of this froup died in 1706, not 1712. His will appears in Will Book C, page 3w, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Probated the 17th day of May 1706. Henry Huddleston, Jr., was born after his fathers died in 1706, not 1712. Lawrence Huddleston (his signature) 1831 W. Dupont Avenue, Belle, West Virginia 25015-December 6th, 1977. Note from Janet Martin August 1999-Lawrence Huddleston passed away in the 1990's. Edna Huddleston Clark Huddleston Morton died December 5, 1955 in Summers Co., West Virginia. She is buried in the Hilltop Cemetery, Hinton, West Virginia, beside her husband Richard Daniel Clark. Through this journal of Edna Huddleston Clark's I find dates of 1929, 1931, 1932, 1937 and 1938. She must have started it in 1929 and finished this in 1938. I typed this journal just as it was written, word for word and all misspellings. Please do not contact me about misinformation in this journal. I too have found misinformation on the Martin's that are mentioned in her journal. Use your own judgement when using this information.
