Hello, My name is James Anderson. I live on property that borders the Jarrell Family Cemetery. I have always been interested in learning more about where the Jarrell homestead was actually located. I am not sure if was my property or located behind the cemetery. My neighbors pasture has two hand dug wells and what appears to have been old foundation locations. Do you have any information about the Jarrell homestead?
Hello, Jim. Thanks for your e-mail. It is interesting that you are living near the family cemetery. Unfortunately, I do not have the details for the Jarrell homestead. But, you have peaked my interest and I’m looking around to see if anything comes up. I’ll let you know if I find anything helpful for locating the property.
My great-grandfather, John Macready Jarrell, was a son of Ansel Marion Jarrell, who would owned the land and is buried in the cemetery. Our branch of the family moved to Michigan, where I grew up. We used to visit our relatives in Desloge, St Francois County periodically. I wish I had known about the Jarrell cemetery at that time, because I would have liked to visit.
