My latest post on my blog is about the family of JACKSONs who started in
Kirby Lonsdale, Westmorland, and then emigrated to post-Cromwellian
Coleraine, as well as to Armagh, Down, Antrim, Meath, Fermanagh, Cavan,
Dublin and elsewhere in Ireland
This is the earliest known start of a line of JACKSONs that subsequently
emigrated not only to Ireland, but also to America in the pre-Civil War
days. My hope was to give the flavour of their lives in the mid-1600s.
At the end, are links to their family tree, the timeline of their time
in Colerane, as well as some of the resources that were helpful to me in
putting their story together.
One of the costs of working solo, as I do, is that I often miss mistakes
that I have made, some of which are obvious. I always appreciate a heads
up and the chance to correct my errors.
Thanks, and enjoy,
Sharon Oddie Brown,
Roberts Creek, BC, Canada.
