BurialJarrett Cemetery, Asheville, NC
The West Asheville neighborhood is working to preserve the historic Jarrett House at 46 Louisiana Ave. The house, built in the 1890s, is of architectural interest. Cabins and Castles reports, “Thomas Jarrett was a millwright at the Clayton Mill and did much of the work on the house himself.”
Thomas, born in 1855 in Buncombe County, was the son of James Montraville Jarrett (1823-1909), who married Loucinda Owenbey (1835-1901). James was a colonel in the Civil War with the 190th North Carolina Militia. He was the son of Noah Jarrett and Betsy Israel Jarrett. In the records the Jarrett name is variously spelled as Garett, Jarrat, Jarret and Jaret.
Thomas Jarrett married Catherine Aiken in 1875. She was born in 1859 and died in 1946. Thomas died in 1895. They are buried in the Jarrett Cemetery that is adjacent to, and accessible through, Green Hills Cemetery in Asheville. The 1925 Asheville City Directory lists Catherine Jarrett widow of T. C. at 46 Louisiana Ave., West Asheville.
