I also have a book of Swain County Marriages, 1871 - 1905. I looked through the Jenkins marriages and found several who may be the children of your ancestors:

Jenkins, John, 20, son of Elix and Alice Jenkins of Georgia to Sarah Rose, 30, daughter of Jno and Elizabeth Jenkins on Jan. 28, 1894. Performed by H.A. Cunningham, Alaka Creek. A Cocherham, George Cocherham and Jesse Upton, wit.

Jenkins, Phillip, 30, of Graham Co., son of John and Elizabeth Jenkins of Graham Co., to Sutena Stiles, 18, daughter of Rebecca Stiles, on Nov. 12, 1893. Performed by C. Calhoun at Elizabeth Stiles' on Forney Creek. A Calhoun, J. Crisp and L. Myers, wit.

Jenkins, Ulyses Grant, 21, son of John and Elizabeth Jenkins (both living)of Swain, to M. Catherine Gibby, daughter of Elisha and Mary Gibby (both living) of Swain, on July 27, 1887. Performed by D. Lester, Justice of the Peace, at John Jenkins' residence, Nantahala. John Jenkins, Elizabeth Jenkins and Nancy Jenkins, wit.

Smith, Andrie, 35, son of Samual and Rebia Smith of Carrol Co., Ga, to M. S. Jenkins, 18, daughter of Jno and Elizabeth Jenkins, on Jan. 25, 1894. Performed by H.H. Hyde, Nantahala. W. H. Hyde, H. D. Painter and Nancy Jenkins, wit.

Hyde, William Harvey, 30, of Swain, son of J.B. and Jennie Hyde (both living) of Swain, to Mollie Jenkins, 28, of Swain, daughter of John and Elizabeth Jenkins (both living) of Swain, on Aug 25, 1885. Performed by J.M. Earls, Minister of the Gospel, at John Jenkins' at Nantahala. L.J.Hyde, S.G.Bayns and W.S. Jenkins, wit.

Green, Adaneah Judson, 19, of Swain, to Samantha Myra Jenkins, 18, of Swain, on March 18, 1880. Performed by D. Dehart, Justice of the Peace at John Jenkins'. J.D. Jenkins, William Brendle, and J.W.R. Cline, wit.

Panther, James C., 21, of Swain, to Sarah Jenkins, 19, of Swain, on Jan 7, 1877. Performed by J.L.Tomasson, Justice of the Peace, at John Jenkins', Nantahala Twsp. Cling Nations, W.H.Thomasson and J. Jenkins, wit.

There are a number of others where the parents are not listed. I would suggest that you consider going to the Swain County Genealogical Society in Bryson City, NC (to their website) and look at the books offered. They are great books and great people to do business with. I have both Baines and Jenkins in my line but don't see a connection at this time. You may contact me directly at crperrysr@comcast.net if you would like more assistance.

There is research on Ancestry.com for her family. Her spouse, a doctor Ralston and her family of 3 sons and 5 daughters are listed there as well. Her date of birth is listed as March 6, 1876 in Bryson City and death as March 31, 1936 in Casey, Kentucky. A copy of her death certificate is there as well as info on her family. Arm you a member of Ancestry.com?

Thanks so much for your help! I already have this census data, but I am looking for some record of her before she married, which was in 1894 in Swain County, NC. Her parents are John Jenkins and Elizabeth Baines Jenkins. I can't seem to find anything for her then....Thanks again!

You probably already have these from Find a Grave. She is buried there with her husband, Dr. Ralston and some of these may be children.
