John is mentioned in his father's 1724 will. Oscar B. Robbins' book states that John II settled in Jerusalem.

John Henry Jones' book on the Jones Family states "The 2d Col. John Jackson had a large family; his will, dated Feby 27, 1738, names his children, including his dau. Phoebe Jones (Lib. 15, p. 76, NYCity)"

The obituary of the above John Henry Jones lists his ancestors and their wives. The obit says the 2nd Col. John Jackson, father of Phebe, was from Jamestown, Long Island.

Earlier 1692 was used as the birth date of the second Col. John Jackson. But this is now questionable as John was mentioned in a deed which I believe was dated 1683: From "The Jones Family of Long Island" by John H. Jones, pg 352: "Mary [Jackson Ferris] was not named in her father's will, but is named in a deed from him [Robert Jackson] to his son John, and the latter's two sons, John and James, under date 5 May, 1653, conveying 'all his lands in Hempstead, etc., excepting that which I have already given my daughter, Mary Ferris, of Westchester Co.' (See Vol. 7, p. 32 of Deeds, Secy. of State Office, Albany, N.Y.)"

On reflection about this deed, I've come to believe that this is a misprint of the date of the above deed. My guess is that it should read 1683 not 1653. This would be a few weeks before Robert signed his will, as he was perhaps winding up his affairs. Also by this date his daughter Mary would have been married and his son John sired two sons. None of this could have happened by 1653. If anyone has access to records of the actual deed, it would be helpful to know if this 1683 assumption is correct.
