Pat: I am a Jackson descendant too through John Jackson's daughter Ann, sister to your Drury.
Regarding Abraham Sr. and the Rev. War...No, he would not
have served in any military unit at his advanced age. The average age of soldiers was 18to30. Plus or minus on each age group.
Have you checked the North Carolina Account books for a contribution for Abraham Sr.
As to Abraham Jr., he may have served in local militia if not the Continental army.
Again, you can check the accounts. Also you can check for their names on at MARS on-line search of the NC Archives.
Drury is listed there.
I have been stalled for over 10 years attempting to find my
Langford/Lankford husband of Ann Jackson who was her first husband. She married an unknown Miller/Millner and then an
These families lived in a cluster in North Carolina and then migrated to SC about 1778, maybe earlier. Lack of SC records is terrible,
The Jackson's later migrated to Georgia as did Ann's son, Edmond who is found in Liberty County.
There was a Mayfield in SC who was a Tory. Haven't researched this fellow but am not surprised. SC was not a pleasant piece of land during the Rev. War.
I am looking for Mayfield records in hope that the Langford family is mentioned somehow.
