Donald A Jenkins was my biological grandfather. My father, Donald Jenkins Greenwood, (born Donald Keith Jenkins before being adopted by my grandmother's second husband at age 3) was barely 2 months old when my grandfather died. My grandmother knew he recieved the telegram with the information he had a son, but never got to see him again nor did he get to meet my father. My father is now 76 and deeply wishes he had kept in better touch with his reletives in New Zealand when he was young. He remembers them sending him gifts and stamps for stamp collecting, but was too young to think of writing. Now he mentions frequently how he regrets not knowing any of his father's side of his lineage or anything about them. He has his father's medals and the small album of photos my grandmother had of the father he never got to meet. If anyone on that side of the family sees this, please contact me. Dad would love to connect.
