  of 783

Ive been trying my darnest to locate in the census or on the net a Joshua Moses Jackson married to Lydia Margaret O'Neal or O'Neil

The couple and some children were killed by Indians in 1858 in Brown County, Texas and am reading many sites that people have presumed he was the son of Ester Hart & Sam Jackson, I say NO

While searching I have come across some interesting items tho and thought I woud share, perhaps someone has some ideas.

Jacob Jackson was Born c1748 in Chester County, Pennsylvania 5 Death: 14 NOV 1844 in Martinsville, Clinton County, Ohio 5 of A serious and complicated illiness 5
Occupation: Quaker Minister and Farmer 5 Event: Heritage English 5 Education: Church based 5
Event: Citizenship English/ United States of America 5 Religion: Quaker 5

Ann Beals b: 3 SEP 1755 in New Garden, Guilford County, North Carolina

Married: 10 AUG 1774 in New Garden, Guilford County, North Carolina 5

Children - Notice names of what could be siblings of Samuel Jackson married to Ester Hart.

Rachel Jackson b: 15 JUL 1775 in New Garden, Guilford County, North Carolina

(This could have been the Joshua killed by Indians iin Texas snce that man and Samuel seemed to make the same trek from NC to Texas.

Ann Beals the grandmother of these children - her mothers name was SARAH

Ann Beals (Jackson)

Born: Sep 3 1755 New Garden MM, Guilford Co., North Carolina Ann Beals Jackson died in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio

(Samuel and Ester Jacson were in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio for a good number of years.

From "Highland Pioneer Sketches and Family Genealogies" by Elsie Johnson Ayres:

Pg. 227: Samuel Jackson and his brothers Jacob and John, Quakers from North Carolina, settled on Rocky Fort as early as 1801. They were the sons of Samuel Jackson, Sr, native of Ireland. Samuel Jackson the immigrant was a direct descendant of Ralph Jackson who was burned at the stake, as a martyr, in Stratford, England in 1556. The brothers remained in a crude log cabin for a few years after their arrival. They were all good hunters who had served as Indian spies. They made enough money or equivalent to live by selling pelts.

*(Samuel, husband of Ester was a well known hunter and trapper)

From "History of Clinton County, Ohio - 1882",

Pg. 725-726:
Note: We have been shown by T. S. Jackson the marriage certificates of his grandparents Jacob Jackson and Ann (Beals) Jackson, who were united in Surry Co., N. C. by the ceremony prescribed by the Society of Friends, on the "tenth day of the eighth month" (August 10) 1774. Jacob Jackson was the son of Samuel and Catherine (Plankinhorn) Jackson of the same community, and his wife was the daughter of Bowater and Sarah Beals, also of the same county....P. A. D.

Samuel, husband of Catherine (Plankinhorn) had a grandfather or great grandfather named Aron married to Sarah WOOLLEY

Ester and Samuel had children named Lydia, Sarah, Rachel, John, (maybe an Isom) Nancy Ann, few I can't recall.

Since the parents and siblings of Ester Hart are unknown, we con't know which of their chidren may have been named for her family.

I'm only GUESSING here and would appreciate any input from someone else.

Samuel Silas Jackson supposedly lived past 100, supposedly born c1767 I think is the time given but we have no real proof of any date of birth that I now of.
