HISTORY NOTES: Dr, Edward William JARRELL
notes from Becky Hackney Fleming, 23 Jan 2003

Several settlements dotted the area south of Denton in the 1870's and
1880's - Graham, Argyle, Prairie Mound, Litsey, Shiloh, Pilot Knob,
Beulah, Lane and Stoney Ridge. These settlements usually consisted of
homes of several families and a building used to provide both the
schooling and religious needs for the settlers.

This section will deal with the establishment of the churches in the
area surrounding the present day Argyle. Some of these churches and
communities are no longer in existence in 1998, but their heritage is
interlocked with that of the Argyle community.

Graham was located 1/2 miles south of the city of Denton and this
settlement was apparently named for Spencer Graham to whom 160 acres
of land were originally patented on January 26, 1865. The settlement
of Graham, Denton County, Texas and the man Spencer Graham apparently
have no connection with the town of Graham, Young County, Texas.

In 1876, the Graham Baptist Church was organized in a little box
school house, known as the Graham Schoolhouse. Because of the school
and church, an area located adjacent to the building soon came to
serve as a cemetery for the community. The cemetery is on a sloping
hillside overlooking a small stream of water,later known as the
Graveyard Branch. Early settlers once entered the cemetery from the
west after crossing the branch.

The family that played a predominant role in the formation of the
Graham School, Graham Baptist Church and the Graham Cemetery was that
of Dr. Edward William Jarrell (January 7, 1832 - June 3, 1885) and
his wife, Lettitia E. Moser Jarrell (October 21, 1838 in Tennessee -
January 19, 1914). The family lived approximately two miles west of
the Graham settlement, near what is now known as the Crawford Road
and 1-35W Intersection. Dr. Jarrell listed his occupation as
physician and farmer at the time of birth of his tenth child, Barnett
Newton Jarrell on December 31,1881. According to Denton County Birth
Records, four Jarrell men settled in Denton County in the last three
decades of the 1800's. Three gravitated to the Graham area,
(E.W.,Caskey, and Joseph Alfred) and one lived in Denton.

Each man married and sired a number of children. William Fountain
Jarrell, Sr., lived on Sycamore Street in Denton and was a dry goods
merchant in 1889. Caskey Jarrell came from Kentucky and married Cara
Lindsey of Lewisville, Texas. He listed his occupation as a farmer,
carpenter, and a Santa Fe Railroad employee by 1898. Joseph Alfred
Jarrell came from Lebon (Wilson County) Tennessee and listed his
occupation as a farmer in 1892. His wife, Sarah Alma Strader, came
from Marshfield, Missouri.

Charter members of the Graham Baptist Church were Dr. and Mrs. E.W.
Jarrell and their three daughters - Mrs. Turner (Mattie) Faught,
Mrs.John W. (Margarett) Faught and Mrs. Will Y. (Tollie) Fincher; Mr.
and Mrs. Dick Lane and their two daughters; and Mr. and Mrs. R. Till
Lane. Nellie D. Lane, wife of W.L. Lane, is buried in the Graham
Cemetery. She was born August 26, 1867 and died February 19, 1893.

The presbytery organizing the Graham Baptist Church was composed of
the Reverends A.T. Thompson, J.O. Daniels and R.G.M. Elland.

The Sunday School was organized soon after the church and Dr. E.W.
Jarrell served as superintendent until his death. In 1887, two years
after Dr. Jarrell's death, the Graham School house burned and was
never rebuilt. Consequently, the church transferred its services to
the Lane Schoolhouse, three miles east of Graham. A part of the
Church moved to Argyle in 1891, a station on the railroad, which was
1/2 mile south of where the church was originally! organized. Those
remaining at the Lane Schoolhouse organized another church, which
they called Smyrna Baptist Church. Those moving to Argyle established
the Argyle Missionary Baptist Church which later became known as the
First Baptist Church of Argyle, Texas.

In 1899, the Church reorganized and services were held in the
Presbyterian Church, Masonic Hall and the Methodist Church.

It was not until 1888 that the Graham Cemetery became official, when
the land being used for that purpose was deeded by C.N. Jarrell and
his wife, M.T. Jarrell, to H.R. Fehlison, G.W. Blair and D.C.
McReynolds as trustees for the Graham Cemetery. To quote from the
deed as found in Volume 33, page 400, in the Denton County Clerk's
Records: The described land is deeded to said Trustees and their
successors a cemetery for the whites of the surrounding community.
The document is dated May 9, 1888. In 1981, this location is
described as 1/2 mile north of the town of Argyle on the Fort Worth
Highway (No.10) which is now called the Country Club Road between
Argyle and Denton. U.S. Highway 377 runs north and south on the west
side of the cemetery. We can only assume that C.N. and M.T. Jarrell
were descendants or other relatives of Dr. E.W. Jarrell. Records are
not available to verify the identity of C.N. Jarrell. Again
assumption plays a role in trying to fill in the gaps of history.
Both Dr. and Mrs. E.W. Jarrell are buried in the Prairie Mound
Cemetery. Is it because the Graham Cemetery was not officially deeded
for that purpose until three years after Dr. Jarrell's death or was
it because the Prairie Mound Cemetery was closer to the Jarrell home?
