John Jackson

M, b. 28 March 1795, d. 4 June 1872
     John Jackson was born on 28 March 1795 at Kentucky.1 He was the son of William Jackson and Margaret (?) John Jackson married Catherine Dawalt, daughter of Henry DeWald and Elizabeth Gross, on 10 May 1821 at Washington Co., IN. John Jackson died on 4 June 1872 at Clark Co., IN, at age 77. He was buried in June 1872 at Hickory Grove Cemetery, Carr Twp., Clark Co., IN.
Note: Tracy Devault's notes for JOHN JACKSON:
Between April of 2009 and January of 2010, I was working with a group that calls themselves the Hempstead Jacksons. Back in April I had no idea as to the identity of the parents of John Jackson. The Hempstead group had seen my Jackson genealogy on the internet and said they would like to establish that the John Jackson (1795/1796 - 1872) in my file was the son of Revolutionary War veteran Samuel Jackson (b. 1756 in Prince William County, Virginia) and his wife, Vashti Grinnan. They had a good bit of circumstantial evidence to show that the John Jackson who had married Catharine Dawalt was a son of said Samuel Jackson.
The group had been using Y-chromosome DNA tests to establish that various Jackson lines were genetically connected. They asked me if I knew of a direct male-line descendant of John Jackson. If I could identify such a person and if he would agree to DNA testing, we could all know for certain if our John Jackson was a son of their Samuel Jackson.
I provided the Hempstead group with contact information for Nathan Kenneth Jackson, son of Carl Warman Jackson. At that time, and to the best of my knowledge, Nathan was the only living direct-male-line descendant of John Jackson. Nathan agreed to provide a DNA sample. However, analysis of Nathan's DNA showed that he was not a descendant Samuel Jackson. The Hempstead group suspected that there had been a "parental event" somewhere in Nathan's paternal up-line and that Nathan's DNA was not representative of John Jackson's male-line DNA. They asked me to provide another candidate for DNA testing.
After looking over my Jackson file, I decided that the only real possibility was that Harold H. Jackson (son of Otto Franklin Jackson) might still be living or might have had a son who was still living. The most recent information I had on Harold was that he was alive in 1940 when his father died. Much time was spent trying to track down information on Harold Jackson. Finally it was learned that he had married Isabelle Rozalia Smith and that they had had a son and two daughters before Harold was killed in a tragic work-related accident. After eight months of searching we learned that Harold's son, Glen Harold Jackson, was alive and living in Lexington, Kentucky. Glen agreed to submit a DNA sample. It turned out that Glen's results exactly matched Nathan Kenneth Jackson's results, pretty much confirming that the John Jackson that married Catherine Dawalt was not a descendant of Samuel and Vashti (Grinnan) Jackson.
However, during my initial contact with Glen Harold Jackson, he said that he had come into possession of a very old Jackson family Bible, with some family information on the beginning pages. He said that this Bible might provide some information on John Jackson's ancestors. The Bible was now in the possession of Glen's sister, Jean (Jackson) Hanz. Jean sent me copies of the Bible pages. They were in terrible shape and the family notations are very hard to read. This is what I was able to glean from the pages.
The Bible is about 3" by 5" and appears to be very old. The date is missing but the Bible was printed in Edinburgh, Scotland by Adrian Watkins, His Majesty's Printer. There are many references to Adrian Watkins Bibles on the internet. They appear to have been printed between 1747 and 1760. (Adrian Watkins held the title "His Majesty's Printer" from 1747 to 1766.) There are several hand-written notations on four pages.

On what appears to be the title page of the Bible
"Andrew Pearsall Jackson was born January the 26th ?? 1828."

On a blank page
"Garrett was born the ??th December 1782"
"William Jackson, the son of William & Margret Jackson was born October 30 1788"
"Mary Nancy Jackson was born November the 14 1790"
"Ann Jackson was born March the 3 1793"
"John Jackson was born March (?) the 28th 1795"
"James Jackson was born August 7th 1797"

On the bottom of a page that is identified "The End of the Old Testament"
"Jeremiah Jackson, son of Wm Jackson and Margaret his wife was Born on the 5th day of
december in the year of our Lord 1801"

On another blank page
"Haz??? the daughter ..... and Margaret was born the eighth day of February ????"
"Rachel upon the tenth day of December 1781"
"Elizabeth upon the tenth day of July 17??"
"Margaret Pearsall was born January 2, "
"William was born October 30 1788"
"Nancy Jackson was born November the 14 ????"
"Ann was born March the 3 1793"
Note: The information on William, Nancy and Ann appear to be duplicate entries.

In 2001 a fellow by the name of Robert Jennings published a genealogy on RootsWeb that showed that Jeremiah Jackson, born in Louisville, Kentucky on 5 December 1801 had married three times, the first time to Adagale Brown and that Andrew Pearsall Jackson was the first child of Jeremiah and Adagale. The genealogy shows that Jeremiah died in Clark County, Indiana.
I looked at the 1820 and 1830 Census records for Clark County, Indiana. It appears that the family of William and Margaret Jackson were living in Clark County, Indiana by 1820 and possibly as early as 1810.
In the 1820 Census there are three Jackson families living in Wood Twp., Clark Co., Indiana. William Jackson Sr., William Jackson Jr. and Zephaniah Jackson. In William Sr.'s household there are two males under the age of 10, two males between the ages 19 and 25 and one male over 45 years old. The older male is probably William Sr. The two boys between 19 and 25 could be Jeremiah Jackson (age 19 and not yet married).and John Jackson (age 25 and not yet married).
In the 1830 Census for Clark County, Indiana there are three Jackson families living next to each other. They are William Jackson, John Jackson and Jeremiah Jackson. These are almost certainly three of the Jackson siblings mentioned in the Bible. The age of the oldest males in each of these families match with William Jackson Jr. (now age 42), our John Jackson (now age 35) and Jeremiah Jackson (now age 29). There are four male children listed in John Jackson's family: two under 5 years old and two between 5 and 10 years old. The age of these male children match exactly with the information we have on John's family. There are also two females listed in John's family. One is in the correct age range to be his wife, Catharine (Dawalt) Jackson. The other is over 70 years old and probably John's mother. Zephaniah Jackson is still living in Clark Co., Indiana. There are some additional Jacksons living in Clark County, Indiana including a John Jackson Sr. and John Jackson Jr. Neither of these John Jackson families match our John Jackson.
It seems pretty clear that our John Jackson was a son of William and Margaret Jackson and not a son of Samuel and Vasti Jackson as the Hempstead group had supposed.
