I am attempting to identify the particular Jackson family of my lineal ancestor William T. Jackson (b. GA, 1829). William is first found enumerated on page 509 of the 1870 Caldwell County KY Census, Princetown Township. He is married to Sarah J. Curry (b. Bedford TN, 1839), the daughter of Reuben Curry. It appears Sarah Curry is William’s second wife for, in 1870, the family is enumerated as follows:
Jackson, W.T. 41 GA (Carpenter)
Sarah J. 39 TN (Keeping House)
M.F. Female 17 GA (Attending School)
A.D. Male 9 GA (Attending School)
M.L. Female 1 KY [This child’s name is Minnie, as William and Sarah Curry’s first known child]
William and Sarah Curry were married in Caldell County KY on June 04, 1866. In addition to Minnie, their other children were a William Jackson, b. KY 1871; and a Charles E. Jackson, B. KY 1873.
In 1880 William and Sarah – and children Minnie, William and Charles – are enumerated on page 162 of the Christian County, Kentucky, Census. The children from William’s first marriage: the female “M.F.” b. GA c1853, and the male “A.D.” b. GA c1861 have not been located in 1880 or in subsequent years.
In 1900, William T. Jackson, living alone, is enumerated on page 232 of the Hopkins County, Kentucky, Census. William T. Jackson died on February 02, 1908. Sarah Curry Jackson died on September 18, 1890. Both, it seems, died in Caldwell County KY and are buried in Crossroads Cemetery.
It has been suggested, but remains unproven, that this William T. Jackson is the same William T. Jackson who is of record as having served 10th (Johnson's) Kentucky Cavalry [Confederate]. I am particularly interested in determining the name of William T.’s first wife, as well as the names of his children from the first marriage, as it may provide a clue to his Georgia family. As reflected by the 1870 census records, it appears that William moved from GA to KY sometime between 1861 and 1870; however it is unclear if his first wife died in GA or KY..
Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
