I’ve not run across the names you mentioned.

I don’t know the maiden name of Bailey Goodwin’s wife Virginia.

I don’t know who their children might have married.

I’ve yet to find Bailey and/or Virginia Goodwin on the 1900 census.


1880: Scott Township, Sharp County, Arkansas

JACKSON Martha J. Head Widowed Female White 46 TN VA TN Keeping House
JACKSON Terry H. Son Single Male White 18 NC NC TN Farmer
JACKSON Mary M. Daughter Single Female White 16 TN NC TN Without Occupation
JACKSON Hilry [Hillery] H. Son Single Male White 14 TN NC TN Farming*
JACKSON Anna K.T. Daughter Single Female White 12 TN NC TN Keeping House


Of the children of William Sherwood Jackson and Martha Jane (Goodwin) Jackson listed on the 1880 census above, I know of the following marriages:

Terry H.L. Jackson is reported to have married Sarah Bradley in Wild Cat, Arkansas, in 1895. They were living in Dwelling 77 in the north part of Black River Township, Independence County, Arkansas, in 1900.

Mary M. Jackson is reported to have married Joseph Elijah Henderson in Charlotte, Arkansas, in 1887. Mary, known as “Aunt Mollie Henderson,” was interviewed by the Batesville Guardian in the mid-1950s (maybe 1954?). She talked about how and when her Jackson family came to Arkansas, plus gave some information about the family’s history. I have the article boxed up somewhere after a recent move. Don’t know which box it might be in. There are lots of them. Joseph and Mary Henderson were listed on the 1900 census in Dwelling 7 in the north part of Black River Township, Independence County.

Hillery Jackson married Mary Ellen (Harris) Jackson, a daughter of Cicero F. Harris and Elizabeth (Polston) Harris. In 1900, Hillery and Mary Jackson were living in Dwelling 53 in the north part of Black River Township, Independence County. In addition to their children, the household included Hillery’s mother Martha Jane and niece Delcie [Delcia] King. I believe Delcie, age 3, was a daughter of Robert and Kate King (see below).

Anna Kate Tennessee Jackson, known as Kate, married Robert B. King, a son of James King and Mary Ann (Lawrence) Owens King of Barren Township, Independence County. I suspect Kate (Jackson) King died before 1900, as Robert King had married a second time, to Nancy Paralee Crow, by 1900. That year, Robert King and his second wife, relative newlyweds (married 1 year), were living in Dwelling 73, Barren Township, Independence County, with Robert and Kate King’s son Shelby (age 6).

As I root around, if I do stumble upon the names you mentioned, I’ll post a reply on this forum.

Regards from Virginia,



I made the title of my post too long and it got cut off. I should read, “Martha Jane (Goodwin) Jackson, daughter of Peter G.W. & Mary Goodwin?”
