A slave named Jarrett is listed in John Selden’s Diary and records, variously described as his manservant and as his overseer. Identification of the surname comes from family correspondence and names of his children from the 1870 census. Jarrett, his wife and seven children were described by Selden as still remaining at Westover after the Yankees had left. John A.
