First off, I'm no relation so I don't have any other information than what I am posting. I thought I'd take a stab and see what I could come up with. I hope I can add something new and not just repeats of what you might already have!

I was able to find Jefferson on the 1910 Vigo Twp., Knox Co. census. He was living in the town of Sandborn with his wife. I also found him on the 1870 Vigo Twp., Knox Co. Census. In 1850, he was living in Cass Twp., Greene Co., IN. I just put his name in the search box to find these at He didn't come up for the 1880 or 1860 census' so his name was probably mispelled.

I found his marriage date to Sarah Ann Hammersly to be 8 Nov 1849 in Daviess Co.

And, on the 1830 Knox Co., IN census there are 5 Jarrell's listed on the same page. The name was spelled Jerrel. Three Charles, one William and a Jefferson who would have been between 20-30 years of age. Just thought that was interesting.

Oh, I found Jefferson's Civil War data on ancestry too. It listed his residence as Newberry which is in Greene Co. Here is the record:

I don't know if you've been here but the 80th Indiana has a great website. My 3rd great-grandfather was also in the 80th only a different company.
