Zadock Jarvis Family

Continued from James Jarvis Family

Zadock Jarvis, son of James Jarvis and Sarah Kelly was born about 1745. Zadock's brother, Elisha, was born in Maryland in 1757 and I am assuming that Zadock was also born in Maryland. They, along with another brother, James, came to Rowan County, North Carolina in 1781. Zadock, Elisha, and James are among those listed in 1776 Montgomery Co., MD Militia. Previously on this site we listed three or four children of Zadock Jarvis. I have now identifed 11 children belonging to Zadock Jarvis, Sr. Zadock appears in the 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820 Rowan NC census records. His name disappears from Rowan records in 1830. I assumed that Zadock Jarvis, Sr. died in Rowan, NC before 1830. I was wrong. In 1830 he is living in Union Co. Indiana and the census information suggests that Zadock, Sr. is between 80 and 90 years of age!. Another correction is the parent of Valinder Jarvis. Until now, I listed Valinder as a daughter of Zadock, Jr. She was not. She is the daughter of Zadock Sr. as is Nancy Jarvis. Valinder married Abraham Douthit, Jr. and Nancy Jarvis married Abraham Douthit, Sr. I was also able to identify Nathan Jarvis as a son of Zadock, Sr. Nathan married Sally Peck in Rowan Co., NC in 1811. I believe Nathan died before 1829. Click Here to check out the census worksheet that helped me conclude and name Zadock, Sr.'s children.

Ina Douthit states in a booklet on Andrew Douthit (dated 1976): "Abram Douthit Jr, his wife, Valinda Jarvis Douthit, and their seven children.... left Hope, NC in a covered wagon. They joined other families who were going "west." They stopped at different places along the way, staying a while in some places. They stopped in Indiana (wonder if at Orange County or Montgomery County where there were large colonies of Douthits and Elrods?) when Valinda became ill and died. Place of her burial is not known to her descendants. When they reached Arkansas, the Douthit and Alburty families stayed. After two years in Arkansas some of them came to Missouri; among them was Abram Douthit and his family. They settled in the Van Buren Community northeast of Ritchey, Newton County, Missouri." In Here Comes the Douthits

Who is James Jarvis that married Sarah Simpson in Wayne Co., IN 1844?

In about 1822 this family moved to Wayne/ Union County, IN where they farmed for about 20 years. In 1847 the family moved "lock, stock and barrel" to Louisa County, Iowa. Zadock had moved to Iowa in 1837. They camped on the bank of the Mississippi River for three weeks to cut trees and build a raft to cross the river to their new home.

In the 1856 Census of Louisa County, Iowa James Jarvis and Ruth Stallings Jarvis state they were born in Maryland.


Children of Nathan Jarvis and Sarah Peck
Nathan Jarvis (1820-aft. 1879) m. Nancy Jane Alberty (1845-1923), d/o John Alberty and Susannah Douthit (moved to Newton Co., MO)

Nathan Jarvis letters

Sarah Peck Jarvis had three children after the death of her husband, Nathan Jarvis.

Children of Sarah Peck Jarvis
Bryan Alexander Jarvis (1829) m. 1) Rebecca Livengood (1830-1855); 2) Susan Hanes (1825-1896)
Hogan Jarvis (1830-1863) m. Emily Berryman
Sarah Ann Jarvis (1832-aft. 1866) m. Erasmus Phelps (abt. 1832-died during Civil War)

The will of John Davis in 1835 names his children by Margaret (nee Maddox) and then names Sarah Jarvis and her three children Byrant, Hogan, and Sarah Ann. They received money and Sarah was to live on the plantation and off the land that it produces. In the original will it states Sarah and my children. The "my children" was crossed out and rewritten Sarah's children. We think that these three children are really John Davis's. Margaret's brother who had moved to Putnam Co., GA, came to NC and took the children, James, Caroline, and Emeline Davis after John's death. We never understood why when Margaret's sister, Elizabeth Maddox Helton Jones was living in Davie County. Maybe it was to get the children away from Sarah and John's children, Bryant, Hogan and Sarah Ann.

Also Ransom Ellis was the guardian of John and Margaret's children and also the guardian of Sarah Jarvis's children after the death of John. We think this speaks volumes about the parentage of these Jarvis children.

Jasper and Ruth Ann moved to Mississippi (after 1870), where Jasper died. Ruth Ann moved to Springfield, Missouri, and lived with her son Henry Benjamin Smithmier (my Great Great Grandfather) where she died was buried. Jasper and Ruth Ann Smithmier's oldest daughter Sarah Elizabeth Smithmier married John McCormick. One of John and Sarah McCormick sons (a twin) was Shuler McCormick (1886-1953), and he wrote a book titled "Who Am I?". This book includes genealogy of the McCormicks, Jarvis, and other related families. Have you heard of this book? I wonder if it may contain information about the Jarvis family that cannot be obtained from other sources? From:

Bryan Jarvis built this two-story log house with an exterior and brick chimney about 1880/85. The house was expanded and altered by successive generations of the Jarvis family, but the architectural fabric remains largely intact. A log kitchen with a central chimney stands in front of the house. In the cemetery across the road is where Bryan Jarvis, his wife and several members of the Hanes family are buried.

Norman Jarvis became a boatman and farmer; devoting the summer months to ferrying and in winter, working as a farm hand. The farm consisted of 270 acres of fertile land and all but 60 acres were cultivated or improved. He was a self-made man and an architect of his own fortune. The points in his character were industry and honesty. -----"Portrait and Biographical Record of Berrien and Cass Counties, Michigan," published in 1893.
