Jiney was the child of Letty (Adams) Bedwell. She was born in about 1868. I have never determined who her father actually was but she was born about two years after Erasmus's second marriage. It is unlikely that she was the child of Erasmus but in the 1880 Perry County census, when she was 12 years old Jiney is listed as “ Jiney Bedwell”. All her sisters still at home (Nancy, Lynda, Sarah Francis, Manday and Margrett) and her mother are also listed as “Bedwell”.
