Hi Roland,
I just saw your message about the Jarnagin Family. I noticed that you have several books and was curious if you have an Aaron Jarnagin b. 1826 listed in any of them. Have been searching for years for his parents. He listed his parents as being b. in N.C, in the 1880 census of Grainger Co. TN. Would appreciate any info that you might have. Thanks, Shirley

Hello,

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.

Regards,
Debbie Gragg

As far I as I know the Jarnagin spelling started with Col. John and his brother Capt. Thomas Jarnagin.

My Mother's family didn't share a whole lot of family history on the Jarnagins, however my Mom remembers her Grandma my Great Grandma, saying that their family were Jernigans at one time. So anyway this is a little bit about what I know about the Jarnagin name.

Regards,
Debbie Gragg

Roland do you have any information on George or John Wesley Jarnagin. They are both buried in Clarksville, Ar. George is my g grandfather and John is my grandfather. They were both lawmen in Clarksville, Arkansas. My mother has ona big book on the Jarnagin history, perhaps it is one of the ones mentioned. The nest time I visit her I will borrow the book and maybe I can clear up some questions. .

I believe there are three spellings of the name: Jernegan, who settled in Martha's Vineyard, MA, Thomas Jarnagin (Above) of Tennessee, and the Jernigans, who settled in North Carolina. William Jarnagin did indeed do a chart of the Jarnagin family. I have the original of this and am not sure if there are any copies left. However, I might be able to help with specific questions if the answers are on the chart.

I am interested in the breakdown of the spelling of the name with Jernegan tied to Martha's Vineyard. In my line, Sarah Jarnigan / Journegin Fancher was the daughter of Mary Bynum and John Jarnigan. It is my understanding that after John died, Mary Bynum Jarnigan moved to either Martha's Vineyard or Maryland. Any information or clarification on this would be very helpful! Lynnmarie

I believe the Jernegan on Martha's Vineyard was earlier. See Bank's History of Martha's Vineyard (3 volumes). It does have genealogy in it and a little on Jernegan
