An account made by Danford MacKay while on a trip to Newfoundland in the 1990s' with his sister Anne:
"We arrived in Cavendish on Saturday, Sept. 1. A convenience store owner referred us to a Mrs. Ann Jerrett. She was very cordial and over coffee she tried to contact a Mrs. Minnie Anne Critch who was away camping for the weekend. We check Ann Jerrett's family "bible" and found the name Aseneth Chislett who died February 8, 1946, aged 71 years. This had to be our grandmother who was married to "Dinny" Chislett after her first husband died in ?1898. Ann Jerrett also remembered Jake Jerrett who was our mother's brother who was married in Newfoundland, had three children and ran off to Boston leaving his first wife and children. He divorced and remarried.
Two women walking by Ann Jerrett's house saw us on the front lawn taking pictures and stopped to chat. One of them, Lois Hicks (nee Jerrett) was the daughter of Chesley Jerrett, now deceased, who was a son of Jake and therefore our first cousin. (He also completed a detailed family tree of the Jerretts which is now being printed.)
Jake's daughter is Minnie Anne Critch who is also our first cousin. We exchanged addresses of all concerned and will be in touch to see the family tree when it is available.
They also knew Mina Jerrett from the Lakehead who is also a distant relative and travels to Newfoundland often. We found an overgrown grave in the Methodist (United) church cemetery inscribed Ascenath Jerrett and Charles Jerrett (our grandparents but reported her death as 1941 and erected by their children."

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Charles by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Charles:
