(III) Dr. Josiah W. P. Jarvis, oldest living son of Granville E. and Anna Maria (Reeves) Jarvis, was born at Philippi, Barbour county, Virginia, now West Virginia, February 28, 1853.

His early education in the public schools of Grafton and Baltimore, was supplemented by a course in Flemington College. He then commenced studying medicine with Dr. Thomas Kennedy, of Grafton, in 1873. The following year he received his first course of lectures at the Western Medical College of Baltimore, Maryland.

After a year's service in the Baltimore Infirmary, he returned to Philippi to practice medicine. Returning more than a year later, he took his second course of lectures at the Western Medical College, and thus was able to graduate with the class of 1876 from that institution of learning.

His brilliant ability was displayed at an early age, and on his removal, in March, 1877, to Amos, Marion county, West Virginia, he soon achieved the reputation of a skilled and successful physician, and his practice became a large and remunerative one.

He is a Democrat by reason of political views which he has formed by intelligent observation of men and events. His fraternal connections have also brought him many honors, and he is a member and past grand master of Mill City Lodge, No. no, and member and past officer of Mountain City Encampment, No. 5, both of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

In 1891 he represented his lodge at the Grand Lodge of West Virginia, meeting at Grafton. Indeed, he has received the highest degree in the order, that of patriarch militant. He is also connected with Marion Lodge, Knights of Pythias, and Mannington Lodge, Orient Chapter, Crusade Commandery, Shrine, Wheeling Consistory, Free and Accepted Masons.

Dr. Jarvis married, April 16, 1880, Ida R., daughter of David Hawes (sic, Hanes), of Basnett, Marion county, West Virginia. Only child, Claude, born June 16, 1882.
