This week I visited the Mesa Regional Family History Center for information about the Jarrell family of North Carolina and Kentucky. This part of the family is on my paternal grandmother’s side. They originated in Craven County, North Carolina and moved to Kentucky around 1800, where they lived in Elliot, Floyd, Morgan and Pike Counties during the early 1800’s.
Here are the items of interest that I found during the visit:
I’m one of about 6,318 women named Jessica Green in the United States today, not to mention the thousands who also live abroad. I sure can’t speak for all of us, so I’ll only be speaking for me.
This Jessica was born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan. I’ve also lived in San Francisco, Boston and Phoenix. My husband and I currently live in Gilbert, Arizona with our four kitties. Olly (11), Cheetoe (9), Tumbleweed (7) and Lucky (3) round out our household of six.
I’m a computer geek by day. By night I’m a photographer, genealogist, concert-goer, club-hopper, movie-fanatic, casino-loving socialite. I enjoy playing Craps, Texas Hold’em, and Blackjack when I have the cash.
Travel is something I am also passionate about. Andrew and I have been to Florida, Hawai’i, California, Washington, Michigan, Massachusetts, Alaska, Vancouver, Ontario, the Bahamas, the United Kingdom and Ireland together. Last time I counted, I’ve been to (or through) about 40 states.
My Bachelor of Science is from Arizona State University in Business Management (c/o May 1999). My Master of Science in Information Management is also from ASU (c/o May 2008). Does that make me a Master of B.S.? =)
If you want a few extra tidbits, check out my Concerts Page and my Netflix 5’s.
Well, that’s enough about this Jessica. I’ve heard from dozens of Jessica’s in the world and would love to hear from more! Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about me. Cheers!
