  • [S47] Richard M. Jr. Fenker, family file "Fenker.FTW," 29 Sep 1998, by disk. File produced by a high school student under the direction of Richard Fenker, Jr. from a large assortment of family materials collected by his mother, and a large handwritten tree of the Cobb family borrowed from Joseph Logan Milam. Much of his mothers' material, and the Cobb tree, are now in our possession and are cited separately. But some of the information in this file is not included in materials we have found so far, so appears it to come from records currently missing. The file is known to contain errors, particularly in spelling of names, but likely also elsewhere, which may be attributed to a combination of the unidentified sources and the inexperience of the transcriber.
