My wife Joan Jarrett of Early Co. Ga. ...and her Jarretts came from Bartow Co. around Adairsville , Ga. Her grandfather Perry Franklin left there early on for eventually Blakely in Early Co.Ga....The three brothers ran a store there about the railroad crossing. Also John Franklin`s first wife Samantha Ella Sparks, of that area, got run over by a train there about where her sons: Charlie, and Perry Franklin, and (?) ran the store.
As Perry Franklin Jarrett got to Blakely, in Early Co. he had Joans dad already Clay Perry the older of the children: Clay, Boyd, Ralph, Bronnie, Wade, Wyatte,Frank, Joe, Mack, Doris....These were the children of this family that left Adairsville early on and to Blakely, Early Co. Ga.....
A Wilton Jarrett, son of Charlie Jarrett, was Mayor of Adairsville Ga......and he and family lived there all their lives....
For an interesting story on how the Jarretts got to North Georgia, Adairsville, via South Carolina, go to the Howard Forum and go to the Post # 8893 and read as the Jarretts, and et. al. left about Orange Co. North Carolina, and with a Baptist Missionary Group eventually got there abouts....Mary Jarrett Gist, and her preacher husband, Benjamin Gist. Later Thomas her younger brother, the father of this bunch of Jarretts joined her....all looking for "Free Land Grants" of the time....The later generations had to move farther on out of Jamestowne, Va....and et. al. up to about Lunenberg Co. Va. first, and then on into SC, and N.C. and then on to Adairsville in Ga....Read this Post on the Howard Family Forum.....Also if anyone knows anything further of the Jarrett family let me know....
Too, I have my Howard Line back as far as it goes thru Jamestowne , Va. also, and into England, and on back as far as it goes....Will be glad to e-mail you out there a copy if you request: Jack Howard Hampstead, N.C. since 1762 (About the time of the Baptist trek out of Orange Co. N.C.
