You probably know that there are hundreds of John Jacksons in 1880. Using your phrase "where they lived in Georgia", I looked at all the John Jacksons in Georgia, but none had the right son or wife. I also skimmed through the Texas CD and Alabama CD. Using the national index, I decided that Amaline might be the best name to search for. The national index does not match husbands, wives and children.
There are 153 Amaline, Emmalines, etc., but only a few born in GA. I looked at these.
JACKSON, Emiline Self       <1826>       F       W (born)GA placeGA
JACKSON, Emeline Wife       <1830>       F       B       GA       AL
JACKSON, Emeline Aunt       <1830>       F       B       GA       GA
JACKSON, Emeline Wife       <1831>       F       B       GA       GA
JACKSON, Emeline Wife       <1845>       F       B       GA       GA
JACKSON, Emmeline Wife       <1858>       F       B       GA       GA
None had the right husband or son. I thought I might try Emma, too, but there are 118 Emmas born in GA.
I noticed only one Emmaline spelled with an A, so I looked her up, just in case. Wrong husband.
JACKSON, Amelin       Wife       <1830>       F       W       AL       AL
Thinking Amaline might be a family name, I looked for Amaline Roberts--none, but lots of Emelines.
I picked out all the John A. Jacksons.
JACKSON, John A. C. Self<1840>       M       W       AL       AR
JACKSON, John A. Self       <1845>       M       W       AL       AL
JACKSON, John A. Other       <1850>       M       W       AL       TX
JACKSON, John A. Self       <1856>       M       B       AL       MS
JACKSON, John A. Son       <1868>       M       W       AL       AL
JACKSON, John A. Son       <1872>       M       B       AL AL
JACKSON, John A. Son       <1872>       M       W       AL       AL
JACKSON, John A. Son       <1873>       M       W       AL       AL
None had the right family. I'm stuck.
