2855 Zebulon and Betsey had no children, but raised a large family of adopted children.

Zebulon Jennings (called by old and young 'Uncle Zeb') like most of the early settlers, was something of a 'Jack of all trades,' working as occasion required, at blacksmithing, shoemaking, tanning and farming. At the time of the removal of his father's family to Ohio, he was in his ninth year. After he was of age, Zebulon bought the first eighty acres of what is known as Jennings Hill, the consideration being a box of glass. He had raised a colt and rode it to Wheeling on the 'old trail'--the Woodsfield road--where he exchanged it for glass, one box of which was already bargained away. He afterwards added many more acres. He was a member of Captain Buell's company in the War of 1812. His commission as Lieutenant in the State Militia is dated Oct. 11, 1817. Later he received a commission as Captain.

In early life he united with the Baptist church and retained his connection with that body up to the time of his death. He was an ardent abolitionist, and his house was used as a station on the 'Underground Railway.' He was a man of strict integrity and goodness of heart, which virtues won for him the esteem of his neighbors and acquaintances.
