  • Notes 
    • Personal comment, Robert W. Jackson's 1910 census record says his father was born in North Carolina, Samuel Jackson's 1880 census record says Ohio, though family tradition says Virginia. Phoebe Jackson Curlin's 1880 census record also says he was born OH. But was this possible? Were there settlers in Ohio that early? Yes: href="http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/entry.php?rec=634">squatters. Part of the reason I am leaning toward Ohio being the correct place is that it is such an unlikely "guess" by his descendants. And that the two eldest surviving children, in other words, the two most likely to know, said the same thing. Phoebe was herself born in Virginia and her parents married there. Samuel was born and raised in Tennessee. Why would either of them have mistakenly said Ohio? And why would both of them have made the same strange mistake? Jesse H. Jackson, Jr. says Reuben was born in Maryland.

      Letter of Floyd M. Jackson, 10 April 1942, "Great-Grandfather Jackson's name was Ruben - His eldest of 5 sons was also named Ruben. All large - over 6 feet tall and all over 200 pounds. These boys were by his first wife. They were all strong, athletic + The "Jackson Boys" usually carried off all prizes at "Log Rollings", shootings and other contests of strength and skill." [This is extremely similiar to a genealogical part of a biography about Stonewall Jackson written in the late 1800s. It appears that by this time, the tradition that we were related to Stonewall was overriding other oral traditions.].

      Floyd M. Jackson interview with Lonnie Jackson, September 23, 1938, "Lonnie says that his father Samuel and my grandfather Robert W. were brothers and sons of one Ruben Jackson. They had six half brothers, one of whose name was also Ruben. All large men, Ruben was the smallest of the brothers, standing 6 foot 3 inches in sock feet."

Afterthe Entry was made and if the tract appeared to be free of claims, theDeputy Surveyor would do the official survey. It could be many monthsbetween Entry and Survey.
