Notes

I happened onto this at ancestry.com and wondered if it would be of interest:

(I haven't researched Augusta County; I was looking for info on Samuel in Prince William County.) Or maybe this record is not early enough to be of interest? --Janiejac 00:55, 4 September 2010 (EDT)

Looks to me like David would fit right in---he's just about the right age to have been in the area prior to say the Revolution. I haven't looked at the Jackson line in this area, but a quick search of WeRelate indicates we haven't captured him. Is there a connection to Prince William County for him, or is the fact that you came across David while searching Samuel totally coincidental? U believe I've noticed others in Old Augusta with roots in Prince William, so this would not be unsurprizing. Q 08:54, 4 September 2010 (EDT)
I would love to find that he's connected to Prince William, but as of now, I don't know of it. I've worked on a lot of Jacksons in early Prince William and some went to KY but I don't know anything about Augusta County. These other two references to Samuel also came up:

Scroll down to page 86 for comments RE William Jackson for whom the Jackson River was named. The only problem with this record is that I don't see an author. But I wanted to keep the link. --Janiejac 22:26, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
