Biography

Cherie was born in 1948.Cherie is still living.

Father of Cherie Worth:

Lisa Hazard conducted triangulation of clusters of genetic matches to Cherie Worth (2nd-3rd cousin range; autosomal testing done through FamilyTreeDNA and uploaded to GedMatch and MyHeritage). A known maternal first cousin once removed with results on FamilyTreeDNA allowed for exclusion of maternal relatives. Triangulation of about 25 genetic matches led to the following sets of most recent common ancestors, all from West Virginia: David Sergent + Rebecca Lockhart; William Riley + Marianne Jones; Josiah Jarvis + Eliza Arnold; James Smith + Emma Rogers. The family of Webster Clyde Sinnett Sr. + Emma Jarvis of West Virginia is the only family that has been found that shares all of those ancestors. Emma Jarvis’s grandparents were Josiah Jarvis + Eliza Arnold and James Smith + Emma Rogers. Webster Clyde Sinnett’s maternal grandparents were William Riley + Marianne Jones; one set of paternal great grandparents was David Sargent and Rebecca Lockhart. The eleven children of Webster Clyde Sinnett and Emma Jarvis were born in the early 1900s (1909-1929), an age range consistent with them potentially having children in the late 1940s. Of the six sons, three appear to have stayed in West Virginia and one moved to Pennsylvania. Sons John William Sinnett and Paul Revere Sinnett lived in the Washington DC area in the 1940s and married women from that area (Katherine Raymond and Teresa Cagnetti, both born in Washington, DC).

Cherie’s mother Margaret Jett lived in the Washington DC area from 1946 until her death. Margaret was a meticulous record keeper and took contemporaneous notes about events in her life, and also discussed them with her daughter, who also has oral history from other relatives. This included information about a longterm relationship she had with a man she knew as “John William Simmons,” who told her that he was born in West Virginia. Her information about him is consistent with available records on John William Sinnett and his family. For example, he told her he had siblings who moved to Florida, and later that he resided in “Westmoreland," Virginia. John Sinnett’s siblings Macel and Sally died in Florida, and John lived at various addresses in Westmoreland County, Virginia for the last few decades of his life. She also wrote down addresses for him in Parkersburg, West Virginia and in Falls Church, Virginia.

Overall, the genetic evidence very strongly suggests that Cherie Worth is a close relative of Webster Sinnett and Emma Jarvis, and geographic evidence and family history strongly suggest that their son John William Sinnett is the father of Cherie Worth.
