Peter Jackson Jr family is in Lyndal Vasser's book but he is wrong on alot on him. He didn't die in 1883 and I don't know if he was married to Eliz. I have him in 1885 in a census in Richardson Co NE living with his son Samuel and Sam's wife. Sam's wife was his second cousin Fanny. She was daughter of Nicholas Sherman Vassar. The book has him lost and no information. The book also has Peter Jackson (used the name Jack) son Samuel never marrying and Jack's son George all wrong, too. George married Elzabeth Vassar Kessinger (Fanny's sister) and died in KS.
In the 1885 NE census Jack is living with his son and Nicholas and his family. I have never found him buried in Richardson Co or MO. The book also has his son Wilis or Witt born in Ill but other info says MO. His daughter Rose Vassar Freel death certificate says her mother was Matilida and Rose was born 4-20-1869 un Buchannan Co MO. His son Charlie was born on 12-11-1877 but his death certificate doesn't says who his mother was. The informant was a Vet Hosp. in Omaha, NE.
