I will submit more later on the families I missed.
I believe that dad whose name was Wesley Overton Jarrell , Elam Overton Jarrell his father, Samuel Jarrell and Martha Underwood Elam's mother and father, Joseph Jarrell and Elizabeth Martin? Samuel father.
I have not been able to prove that Joseph Jarrell was connected to Daniel Jarrell and Hannah Workman but all of it fits. Since they had a son named Overton and there is also a Wesely in that family.
My mother and sister told me that Dad and Tom used to visit in WVA at Indian Creek ,WVa.
Is there anyone out there that can connect this family . Joseph Jarrell born abt 1829 in Franklin Co. VA. died in the Civil War in 1863 and is buried at Blandford Cem. in Petersburg,VA.
I have his Civil War records but it gives no date of birth , nor father or mother.
Please if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in Advance . Gloria Jarrell
