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?

If you are a descendant of this line you can e-mail me, privately

I want every date and place I can get. I do not post birth or
marriage dates later than 1930 to the general population but I do
supply them to cousins! My date of birth is 30 Nov 1934 but when
it got posted to the JARRELL ListServer or the general internet it
would appear as 30 Nov 19(private) which tells everyone that I have
a hard date and no further research needs to be done.

Having said that - I post my dob in it's natural form because I'm
not concerned about it.

Pioneer Merchant From Corsicana Dies At Residence in Dallas Joseph
Alfred Jarrell, 72, dry goods merchant at Corsicana for a quarter
of a century, will be buried in Restland Memorial Park Tuesday.

Mr. Jarrell, a former executive in the Graham Combination Stores
which operated in sixteen cities of North and Central Texas, died
Sunday at 6226 Richmond, where he had been living since he moved
here from Corsicana a year ago.

Dr. Floyd Poe will conduct funeral services at the George A. Brewer
Funeral Chapel Tuesday at 4 p.m.

A native of Lebanon, Tenn., Mr. Jarrell was 7 years old when his
parents moved to Texas and settled in Denton County. There he
farmed until 1896 when an uncle, A. E. Graham of Denton, who
founded the combination stores and an elder brother, influenced him
to go into the dry goods business in Georgetown.

In 1898 the first of the Texas oil fields was opened in Corsicana
and the first of the state's refineries was under way.

The Jarrells closed the store in Georgetown and moved to Corsicana
with the boom.

Mr. Jarrell operated the store there until he retired in 1924.

He was an officer in the Third Avenue Presbyterian Church in
Corsicana for almost forty years before he moved to Dallas.

His membership was transferred to the City Temple Presbyterian
Church, but deacons and elders of his old church will be
pallbearers at the funeral.

Survivors are his wife, Mrs. Alma Stader Jarrell; a son, L. O.
Jarrell of Houston, and two daughters, Miss Eddie and Miss Joe
Jarrell, both of Dallas.
