Jernigan Genealogy - Martin Jernigan
Martin Jernigan - Martin Jernigan was born in or around 1804 and I believe he was born in Sumner County, Tennessee, the home of many of my Jernigan relatives. Martin was a common Jernigan name and he married Ann Groves on 3 Aug 1824. The couple had at least two children, maybe three, Granville B. & Susan for certain, and one record indicated the possibility of another Martin Jernigan as a son. Martin Jernigan, Sr. purchased land in Randolph County, Illinois, in August of 1831, he unfortunately died shortly thereafter, on the morning of 6 Oct 1831. His widow, Ann Groves, remarried Jeremiah Murray (or Murrah) and had six more children. His will was administered by Bryant Jernigan, Martin's brother, where Martin "wished Bryant Jernigan to have his son Granville B. Jernigan educated in all the arts and sciences of the English language."
