Samuel Jernigan and wife
An early day Ozark and Chadwick merchant, Mr. Jernigan was married at least 3 times. His likely first wife was a sister of John Hornbeak by the name of Eliza Hornbeak. This tintype dates from the early 1870's, shortly after Jernigan had come to Ozark from his native KY where he was born in 1848 and died in Christian County in 1928. Another of his wives was Sina Sanders Stewart.
