Looking for Nancy's father, I found her mother & siblings, but no father:
1860 Census Division 2, Carter Co., Tennessee
Sophia Jackson 40 F NC
Sarah Jackson 20 F TN
James Jackson 18 M day laborer TN
William Jackson 16 M day laborer TN
Margaret Jackson 14 F TN
Nancy Jackson 11 F TN
Hampton Jackson 9 M TN
Martha Jackson 3 F TN

Still looking for Nancy's father:
1850 Census Dist 7, Carter Co., Tennessee
hh #81 enumerated 1 Oct 1850
William Jackson 33 M W laborer VA
Sophia Jackson 33 F W NC
next page:
Sarah E. Jackson 10 F W TN
James L. Jackson 8 M W TN
Thomas Jackson 6 M W TN
Margaret Jackson 4 F W TN
Nanczann Jackson 1 F W TN

I wonder where William Jackson and Sophia Unknown were married? Sarah appears to be the oldest child b abt 1840 when Wm and Sophia were abt 23 yrs old. So Wm & Sophia were in TN by 1840. Are they listed in Carter Co marriages?

Where was Hampton in 1870?

The child William 16 in 1860 and Thomas age 6 in 1850 possibly the same person.--Janiejac 08:42, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
