My name is Barbara Lee Jernigan and I started this site. This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. I would like all Jernigans to contribute theire branch
I have been working on two branches of this tree for years. Isaac Brunson0 1808-1860 and William Jernigan b. 1822-death unknown. At any rate, He was gone from Decatur CO. by 1860 when his only child was in the home of his grandparents, Amos and Narcissus George.
I am of the opinion that Wm. came from NC near the border of what is NC and SC. I believe that the Elisha Jernigan in Decatur county in 1840 was his brotherand the son of Jessie and Naomi Bell Jernigan.
I am going to also enter my husband's Brookins tree and his Jernigan line to this tree.
