Andrew JARRETT, b. @ 1814 in Va., came to Hancock Co. IN in the 1830's. He married Elizabeth MEDARIS March 2, 1837. They divorced August 18, 1848. They had the following children: Marian Jane, b. 1839, married Andrew J. EAKES James M. , b. 1843 Married Branna E. ? David C., b. 1846 Married Matilda ? After 1848 Andrew married Phoebe Jane CHAPMAN(?). They had the following children: Benjamin H., b. 1852, married Bertha GROSS Hiram E., b. 1853, married Rebecca E. RIGG Mary M. Hannah C. Andrew may have been related to Owen JARRETT, Neri JARRETT and Robeson JARRETT, all of whom came to Hancock Co. from Virginia at about the same time had purchased land close together. (They were original purchasers of this land.) Andrew may have been related to Owen JARRETT, Neri JARRETT and Robeson JARRETT, all of whom came to Hancock Co. from Virginia at about the same time hadpurchased land close together. Andrew died in December, 1870 and is buried in Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Hancock Co. After his death, the children seem to have gone to Tipton Co. where they remained about 10-20 years. After that time, most ended up in Madison Co. Phoebe is the mystery. I have not been able to find a record of their marriage. I do not know what happened her after Andrew died. I do not know where she is buried.. I am also not sure her last name was CHAPMAN. The 1850 census shows Andrew and Phoebe married. Matilda CHAPMAN, widow of both Elisha CHAPMAN and Joseph CHAPMAN is living with Andrew and Phoebe. If you are connected or can help, please e-mail.

His parents George and Elizabeth were also in the area. George HUDSON died around 1850 to 1860 in Hamilton Twp. in Hancock County. Harrison HUDSON had brothers and sisters named Elsey, Isaac, Solomon, Washington, John and George. Harrison probably had several children, but the only one I know is James HUDSON.
