*James Jarratt, Jr. died some time after 1850; Sarah Ann married Porter Ingram in 1848; Cynthia Elizabeth married Henry Malone Jeter in 1853.  Both of these men died after the Civil War.

Jane Jack Jarratt died some time before 1860, when her estate showed 30 slaves on the 1860 slave schedule.  I have not found a copy of her will.
