From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for John Dejernatt, who resided at Logan C.H., West Virginia:

Carpenter and cabinet-maker, Logan C.H., W.Va., is descended from the family of Dejernatts, whose genealogy in Va. may be thus traced: Munford Dejernatt was born in Petersburg, Va., in 1779; married Feb. 3, 1814, to Chloe Price, who was born March 8, 1791, in North Carolina; the husband died in Boone county, W.Va., Jan. 1854; the wife in Logan county, W.Va., June 21, 1861. Their son, John Dejernatt, the subject of this sketch, was born May 20, 1817, in Iredell county, N.C.; his wife, Mary J. Bryan, was born June 8, 1823, in Covington, Va.; they were married at Logan C.H., W.Va., April 16, 1850.

Mr. Dejernatt served as colonel in the 129th Va. regiment militia, Confederate army, during the late civil war; since the close of the war he has been overseer of the poor in Logan county. As a citizen he is esteemed and respected as a man of honest integrity and zealous energy; has raised his family in Logan county, where they stand well.
