Re: JARRETT/GRIFFITH lines thru David Jacob
I have heard mountains of old stories on David Jarrett Sr.
Lawrence Co. Ky records def say that David Jarrett of Lawrence Co. was the son of David & Jane Jarrett of Greenbrier Co.
I do have the will of David Jarrett Sr's. son inlaw Peter Lykins.
Peter Lykins will was written Aug. 21, 1847 - Probated Dec. Court term at Fayette Co. Va/Now W.Va. courthouse.
Mentions wife Polly,
Sons - David, John, Herold
Daughter - Peggy Curry
Grandson's named in the will are James Lykins, Herold Lykins
Granddau. Named Elizabeth & Margaret. (Note last name not given)
Witnessed by James Morriss, James Montgomery, Morriss Harvey
Jared Lykins has an appraisemnt in Fayette Co. also date recorded Nov. 2, 1839 Appraisment was done by Isaac Jenkins, John Huddleston, John Martin dated Oct. 25, 1839.
I need to go thru. my mountains of stuff copied from tons of courthouses and libraries. Lot's of it I copied and have never sorted out and they are still in file folders stacked in milk crates.
I aslo have the will of Mary (Craig) groves Miller Martin filed in Nicholas County Courthouse. She had 3 husbands and children to all of them. She names her daughter Martha Jarrett in her will. Martha Married Squire Jarrett.
I'm a double desc. of Mary Craig. (Thru. my mother Cleo Marie Sebert)
1st husband John Groves & Mary have s son John Groves he married Jane McClung --John & Mary'sDaughter Martha (Patsey)Groves She married Squire Jarrett.
3rd husband Robert Martin & Mary have a son named Robert Martin he married Parthenia (Therina) Williams. Their daughter Mary Martin was the 1st wife of Solomon Bailes.
My moms grandmother Madora (Groves) Sebert was the grandau. of John Groves & Jane McClung.
My moms grandfather John Abraham Lewis Sebert was the grandson of Solomon Bailes & Mary Martin and he was the great grandson of Robert Martin & Parthenia Williams.
This makes my moms a double desc. of Mary(Craig) Groves Miller Martin. who was the mother of Martha (Patsey)Groves Jarrett whom she named in her will.
The 1st court of Nicholas Co. W.Va. was held on the land of Mary (Craig) Groves Miller Martin. Mother inlaw of Squire Jarrett. Mary is all over every History book ever written on Nicholas Co.
This makes for a lot of research into David Jarrett and his children. Not to mention my dad's Hicks side of the family from William & Hannah(Jarrett)Hicks.
