Jennie Smith

Record of Births, Probate Court, Jackson County, Ohio, [1885-] 1886

I think I chased my own tail so much last weekend that I was unable to see the obvious path right in front of me. I tried again and had no trouble locating the birth register entry for Jennie Smith, daughter of Cinda Smith (number 67). And look! As I suspected, she was illegitimate. (There was no such notation in the register for Lucinda’s first child, Harry Rockwell, so I wonder if that means that they were married and the marriage was annulled? Or were they unmarried but since the father’s name was supplied, the registrar didn’t mark the child illegitimate?)
