Trying to sort out the information on the two Absolem (Absolom) Jacksons of Wilkinson County, Georgia in the early 1800's.

One of the Absolem Jackson's descended from the Greene County, Ga Jackson Family. That is documented in William Jackson's Will probated Sept 1831.

The other Absolem Jackson most likely descended from the Greene County, Ga Jackson Family also, but I can not make the connection.

My Absolem Jackson was Joseph Absolem Jackson m. Sarah Etheridge, parents of
Joseph Etheridge Jackson b. 5-23-1832 Wilkinson Co., Ga d. 3-07-1901 Wilkinson Co., Ga
Spouse: (1st) Sarah Jenkins (2nd) Arrissia Mills.

Old Family History 1911
Lineage: Virginia - North Carolina - Georgia
Moses Jackson b. Va, Spouse: Mary Frederick Jackson b. Va
son: Benjamin Carter Jackson b. abt 1750 Va, Spouse: (1st cousin) Mary Jackson, daughter of Joseph Frederick Jackson
son: Joseph Absolem Jackson (Sr.) b. 1772 d 1825, Spouse: unknown
Benjamin Jackson
Joseph Absolem Jackson (Jr), Spouse: Sarah Etheridge b. abt 1794 Washington County, Ga, daughter of Robert and Calley Etheridge(Joseph Absolem and Sarah Jackson are my great great great grandparents)
Jesse Jackson
Andrew Jackson

Does anyone know the connection between these two Absolem Jacksons of Wilkinson County, Ga. Does anyone recognize any of these names in the old family history?

I have so little information on Jospeh Absolem Jackson and Sarah Etheridge. Does anyone have a list of their children in their database.

Any little bit of information would be appreciated on this family.
