About Hannah Jarvis

John and Hannah (Hill) Jarvis are the first known of the Jarvis line that are prominent in the history of Calhoun and Roane Counties in WV. John Jarvis of Clarksburg, WV quotes Audrey Jarvis Hinkle as saying, "The first Jarvis of whom I have any information is John Jarvis, who was born in England in 1720. He married Hannah Hill of Hillshire, England and emigrated to America, arriving in Baltimore, MD about 1750. He had two sons, one of them being called Solomon. Legend has it that Solomon and his brother both fought in the Revolutionary War..." The Compendium of American Genealogy lists "John Jarvis 1720-1795" and "Hannah Hill 1725-1800" and states that John fought in the Revolution. One source lists John as possibly a son or step son of Daniel Jarvis, who was born about 1650 in London, England and married a Mrs. Jane Jarvis in that area about 1673. This is not likely, since Daniel would have been about 70 years old when John was born in 1720 and Jane would have been nearly as old. John was born in England in 1720 and died in Baltimore County MD in 1795. He married Hannah Hill in Hillshire, England about 1749. Hannah was born in England about 1730. The family came to North America about 1750 and settled on Bush River Low Hundred near Bel Aire, MD.
