O. B. Robbins book, pg 10: "went to NJ, owned the Jackson Forge."
John & Sarah moved "to the wilderness of Morris County, New Jersey, May 31, 1722". And his forge was sold there at Sheriff's Sale in 1753. So it has been assumed that all of John Jackson and Sarah Doty's children were born in Morris County, NJ.
Quote from Wikipedia as of 20 May 2010: "On May 31, 1722, Joseph Latham and his wife Jane deeded 527 acres (2.13 km2) over to John Jackson of Flushing, New York. Joseph Latham was deeded the land in 1713 by virtue of land purchased from Native Americans by the Proprietors of West Jersey.
After the sale of the forge in 1753, John is found in Anson County in North Carolina in many documents referring also to his younger brothers Stephen and Benjamin. It is now conjectured that at some time John's youngest son James also found his way to North Carolina and a study of John's son, James Jackson is posted here: http://www.jacksonfamilygenealogy.com/pages/conflictinganalysis_of_JamesJackson.htm
From Bill Jackson, researcher:
From Bob Mitchell: North Carolina Wills, Book J, Page 8 Will of John Jackson in Anson County N. C. ...daughters Elizabeth , Mary, Sarah and Rebecca, each 5 Sh., my lands and all my movable estate to be sold to the best advantage and the money to be paid as follows: to Daughters Phebe, Jemimah and Hannah to have it equally divided between them. Stephen Jackson and John Perkins, exrs. 15 April 1768 Wit. Job Meadow, John May, Charles Booth Executed 1772, Anson Co., NC
Bob Mitchell writes: "Richmond County was formed from part of Anson Co., in 1779. The county seat of Anson Co., west of the Pee Dee River was difficult for the residents east of the river to reach for business, especially during spring floods. Richmond County is bound on the west by Anson Co., and on the South by Chesterfield Co. It is in the area that was referred to as the Cheraws Dist in the late 1700's. My guess is that John Jackson Sr.'s descendants wound up in Richmond Co., instead of Anson or Chesterfield after the shifting of boundaries. This will help in the hunt for the John/Jonathan Jacksons of the Cheraws."
