Samuel B. Jackson
Posted by: Jeff Youngblood (ID *****1511) Date: February 02, 2010 at 11:42:58

I am looking for the parents of Samuel B. Jackson. Sam's descendants are well documented, but his parents are STILL unknown.

Family oral history states that he had a BROTHER, named Ervin Jackson, nicknamed "HOG JACKSON." I believe this is the same Hog Jackson of Florence, Texas.

I have a very old letter signed by "E. Jackson" that mentions a couple of the same names thought to have been associated with his (Ervin Jackson's) known family.

Sam is also known to have had a sister: Huldah Jackson. She became the second wife of "Captain Jack Berry," or Andrew Jackson Berry.

I'm very much interested in corresponding with other JACKSON researchers while working to locate Sam's parents. It is thought (from family oral history) that Sam and his family were originally from Franklin County, Tenn. It is also said that they came to Texas sometime in the mid 1850's and settled in or near Brushy Creek - present day Round Rock - Texas. Research to date has not confirmed this story, however.
