Need info on the JARVIS family. My grandfather was Thomas Jefferson JARVIS, known as T.J. or Jeff. He was born in 1889. His father may be also T.J. married to D. SUMNER. Does anyone know about this branch? We are stuck at this point! We didn't know about Prairie County containing Lonoke before today.
