The family property in Grainger Co. TN is still in my Jarnagin family. Bruce Jarnagin, of whom I had the pleasure to meet, at a Jarnagin family reunion, in 1999 was 97 years old at the time, and just as alert and sharp as he could be.

He was brought up on the homestead. His brother William Jarnagin owned the local Ford Dealership until he was 102 years old. The story is that he would go each morning to the dealership, and make sure the coffee got made.

Bruce said that Nelson and Rachel Inman Jarnagin were buried on the property. Nelson and Rachel were my 3d Great Grandparents. Bruce has probably passed on by now, but I will always remember the great opportunity that I had to speak with him.
