According to a marriage record for Bertha May Jenks and Mansfield Bruce Matthew, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XJKP-GKF , Bertha's parents are Geo. E. Jenks and Sarah S. Warr. Based on Bertha's gravestone, they would have to be born before August 1889 and died 1889 at the latest. Further documents or information relating to Geo. E. Jenks and Sarah S. Warr would be appreciated.
