Facts and Events
His father, Richard, is said to have settled in Dutchess County, NY but the Jones Book does not say when. The Van Benschoten Book says Richard arrived in Dutchess in 1774 but until the birth dates of the children are discovered, it is unknown whether they were born in Dutchess county or not.
The Kissam Books adds the information for his middle initial and that he married a lady with the last name of Ingraham.
Pg 135, the Van Benschoten Book: "After his father's death in 1826 the homstead fell to John Jackson, my grandmother's brother. It continued to be, however, a great Methodist gathering-spot and a stopping place for ministers. At times the house was full of preachers: and Mrs. Phoebe Lee, the daughter of John, recalls that once when there was a conference at Po'keepsie as many as twenty ministers, all from eastward, put up with them over night.. . . John Jackson's continued to be a regular preaching place until the building of the new house in 1837."
So much more interesting stories are in this book: it is recommended reading!!
