Dr. Jarrote
pg 11, mention
In the early and rather unsettled ownership of the Dubuque lead mines the name of a Dr. Jarrote appears in connection with a local organization for the government of the miners on the west side of the Mississippi River. It appears that Dr. Jarrote was elected the first governor of this organization which adopted a code to govern a rather unruly body of men. Dr. Jarrote was probably a man of executive ability as the laws framed by this organization are said to have been obeyed, and as rigidly enforced as have been the laws of later days. (transcribers note: this is most likely Francis Jarrote, although no date is given in the book, the year is probably about 1830)
H.B. Jennings
pg 158, mention
At the October 25, 1885 meeting of the Council Bluffs Medical Society, the board of censors examined the credentials of Dr. H.B. Jennings, and finding them satisfactory, reported in favor of his election, whereupon the society elected him to membership.
