Facts and Events
Columbia County was created on March 22, 1813, from part of Northumberland County.
This John Jackson's connection to Silas Jackson and Jane McHenry was researched by Lyn Gorski's grandfather and Lyn contributed his papers. The papers had lot of new info but no sources; so I would very much appreciate any male Jackson from this line to participate in DNA testing to confirm her grandfather's connection to Silas and Jane. Lyn's grandfather was the grandson of John and gr-grandson of Silas so I've accepted his connection without a source but would love to confirm it with DNA.
