m. 7 May 1724
Facts and Events
The Jackson Ledger has his birth date as 1929 but this is up for debate. The Ledger's reference to him on pgs 42, 79 & 80 is suspect. I don't believe these references are for our line of Jacksons but rather for the line of John Jackson and Elizabeth Cummins (Stonewall's line).
"Mayflower Families in Progress", 3rd ed. Peter B. Hill compiler has John, s/o John 1701, was born 5 May 1733 and this is the date I have accepted.
John's parents moved "to the wilderness of Morris County, New Jersey, May 31, 1722". So it has been assumed by some that all of John Jackson and Sarah Doty's children were born in Morris County, NJ.
In 1739 Morris County was set off from Hunterdon County, and named after the new governor. Jackson's Forge, up to this time, had been in Hunterdon County. Ruineous taxes caused his father's forge, the Jackson Forge, to be sold in Morris County at Sheriffs Sale in 1753. It is probably a good assumption that it was after then that his father migrated to the Carolinas and it is possible that is when John & Phoebe went also, though they could have gone at a different time.
