Jenkins' Father is a farmer who lived in Elmo's Hill, New Jersey.
On October 30, 1938, Jenkins' Father failed to see or hear the crash landing of a Martian scout ship. Jenkins tried to tell his father about the ship in vain. The father concluded Jenkins stayed up past his bedtime to listen to the "War of the Worlds" broadcast and was telling a tall tale. The father disciplined Jenkins by tanning his hide.
