William & Mary Crosson Jackson

The Lincoln Co., GA census records for 1830, 1840,& 1850 appear to list the family of Mary Crosson b. abt 1790/91 in prob. Wilkes Co., GA, the daughter of John Crosson, married to William Jackson. The ages for Mary listed in the census records agree with the age of Mary Jackson, wife of William, one the children of John and Achsah Lewis Crosson, as listed in pension claim documents. In the court documents, Mary Jackson, age 62, is shown to be living in Stewart County, GA after her mother's death in 1853.

As the census records indicate, in 1830 William and Mary Jackson had at least 5 male and two female children, assumed to be sons and daughters, living in their household in Lincoln Co., GA.. By 1840, 3 children remained in the household, 2 males and one female. One can reasonably assume that, Jane, a 23 year old female listed in the 1850 census, is probably the youngest daughter listed as an infant in the 1830 census. An 8 month old baby boy, George W., was also reported living in the household in 1850. Considering that Mary's age at that time was listed at 60, one could reasonably suppose that the infant may have been the son of Jane.

Who were the parents and siblings of William Jackson? What happened to the children listed in the Jackson household on these census records? What were their names and where did they go? Did they relocate to Stewart Co., GA as well?

I would like to be in contact with anyone having information about this family. I have some information about Mary's family, the Crossons of Wilkes, Lincoln, Stewart, and Mitchell counties of Georgia, and would be happy to share.
