Looking for any info regarding the family of John or Jonathan Jackson who
was married to Betty (Elizabeth?) Miller. There were six children that I
know of (Betty and Johns'): Pony, Bud, Maggie, Hattie, John and Eli ( Eli
was born Oct. 14/1876). Maggie married Oscar Ross Wiley and Eli (my
Grandfather) married Rose Virginia Buford from Caldwell County,TX in 1898.
These are the only facts that I know to be correct. Most of the children
were born in Stockdale, Texas.
There is a mystery surrounding the name of John Jackson (#1), supposedly he
changed his name.
The story as told to me was that his real name was John Jackson Edwards, he
left the New York area around the 1840s, moved to Texas and dropped the
Edwards. He was thereafter know as John Jackson. I have also found no info
regarding Betty Miller.
If anyone knows more, or different data regarding this family please reply
to this listing or my email: sykes_(a)msn.com
