Saw your Jarman information on the forum and checked out your family website information. I was on baited breath when I saw the information because my maternal grandfather was Robert Lee Jarman, who owned a tobacco farm with my grandmother, Bertha Cox Jarman, between Richlands and Jacksonville off Hwy 258 way back in the woods near a little community of Hines that became known as Hinestown (all just north of Catherine Lake).

I know my grandfather was born in Pollocksville, Jones Ct 1888-90. His mothe was Rose or Roseann. His father was Tom but we're unsure if Duval/Dubois or Jarman. He was of Eupopean descent and my great of at least partial, African descent. My grandfather moved to Onslow Ct as a young man, I believed, laying rails, in what was then, Camp Perry. That's when he met and married my grandmother.

She was one of the siblings who received land because her parents were, I believe, also sharecroppers but of African/Indian descent. Of their children who remained in NC, and were well known in the area, one of my uncles worked for REA, the electric company, (Clyde) and one owned a pulpwood truck and grocery in Jacksonville (Hayes).

I grew up on the farm with my grandparents and my mother until I was approximately 12 when Mother and I moved into Jacksonville. We moved to Baltimore when I was 16 where I graduated high school in 1971. I've been Air Force nomad since 1976 and have little knowledge or connection with NC any longer but my mother is still alive in Jacksonville.

From what I can gather from your family tree, there is no immediate connection but it was interesting just the same and I suspect our families may have even known of each other. Thanks for sharing...
