    (1) Because the marriage date for Belle Conroe and William Boyde Jenkins was one year after this birth, it is possible that one of the two parents was NOT the natural parent of Roy Clyde Jenkins (although he apparently believed them to be his parents, per interview with his daughter, Lola Jenkins Tramel).
    (2) BTH evaluation of evidence is that it is MOST likely that he was the natural son of both Belle and William, since more than one source show this to be the case. His parents were perhaps not living together at the time of his birth--note the birth certificate shows Belle living IN Trinidad, and William Boyde living NEAR Trinidad at the time of the birth.
