Francis Jackson pg 180
Francis Jackson, Younger pg 180
George Jackson pg 181
John Jackson pg 181
Samll Jackson pg 181

There are no Jacksons on page 182. So there were 3 men named Samuel, 3 men named Francis, 1 George and 1 John.

Migration from Virginia

  1. Topic: Pioneer Travel, focus Fauquier County, Virginia to Kentucky to Missouri

Quotes for topic taken from: From Missouri's Confederate...Claiborne Jackson, Christopher Phillip, Missouri Press found in Google.com books, page 11-

"When one of three tax assessors canvassed Mason County, Kentucky in September, 1792 among the new residents he found who possessed taxable wealth was 29 year old DEMPSEY JACKSON. He and his young family had likely traveled in a group with other Fauquier families (possibly brothers or cousins, for several men of that name--including WILLIAM, SAMUEL, JAMES and THOMAS JACKSON--all names that would appear in later Mason County simultaneously with Dempsey's arrival) along a route well worn by thousands before them: northwesterward by wagon from Fauquier County through the Blue Ridge gaps to the lower Shenandoah Valley, crossing Potomoc into Maryland, then heading westward over to the valley town of Cumberland then picking up Braddock's infamous and well used road through the Allegheny mountain passes to the Monongahela River, following the river then 50 more miles to Fort Pitt or Pittsburg....With over 200 tortuous miles behind them the JACKSON clan probably sold their wagons and purchased a flatboat or barge--which cost them as much as a dollar a foot--and provisions and floated themselves, their families, and their precious household cargoes down the gradually slowing current of the mighty Ohio for nearly 400 miles. After nearly two months of arduous travel the weary group arrived at Limestone....between which were wedged a few log houses, a tobacco warehouse, and the Boone Tavern, owned by the son of the famous frontiersman. In 1792 sprawling Mason County--which stretched from the Sandy River on the east to the Licking River on the west and south, 160 miles from end to end--was the northernmost county in Kentucky....In 1811 the eldest sons CRAVEN and DEMPSEY PICKETT {JACKSON} left the farm bound for Nashville, Tennessee....Between 1823 and 1826 four more of Dempsey's sons--THOMAS, WILLIAM, WADE, and CALIB--as well as seven adult male Jackson cousins followed the path of their ancestors....moved to the new frontier of Missouri...these young westerners each traveled the Ohio and Mississippi River by steamer to St Louis then up the state's main artery, the Missouri River to Franklin, a thriving river town and seat of Howard County. Steamboats had begun plying the turbid waters of the Missouri to Franklin in 1819, complementing the 'Boon's Lick Trace' that connected St Charles with Franklin. Howard County with Franklin as its centerpiece was the heart of Missouri's current lodestone of immigration--the Boon'sLick country."
