Dear Robin thank you so very much for this information. i will include it in my records.
The Chester Jarnagin my cousin Virginia Furgerson and I are trying to connect to Noah/Mary Russell Jarnagin was married to Margaret Grove in 1823 Jefferson Co Tn. Chester is on the 1830 and 1840 Census but Margaret is alone on the 1850 census. Her name is misspelled Jarngio. We know it is Chester's Margaret by the children. There is a Grove diary that confirms the marriage also.
Do you have information on this family. The Thomas Jarnagin book by Leeper mentions our Chester as a possible son but we are looking for positive confirmation.
Again THANK YOU SO MUCH for your response. If you find any information about our Chester's father we will be very grateful. Sincerely, Gertie Jarnagin Day
