Jessie Early Herd was a son of Marlin/Martin and Mary Ruth (Briggs) Herd. He was born in Tennessee but in 1840 we find his father and family located in Arkansas. He later moves to Missouri. About 1863/1864 we find that Jessie is involved in the CIVIL WAR - He entered as a private and exited as a Corporal. He was with Company I, 46th infantry Missouri.
Jessie married Nancy Jane Welch March 3, 1864 in Ozark co., Missouri. They had children: Mary, William T, Sarah Jane, Samuel, Malinda, Hulda Ann, Benjamin, Ruthie Viola, James Washington, and Magnolia "Maggie".
He was a farmer. Jessie died about the age of 59 years.
