Facts and Events
There are 7 vital records available on MyHeritage for Lieut. Maximillian Franklin 'Frank' Jackson, including birth records, marriage records, and death records. Vital records are historical records that are typically recorded around the actual time of the event, which means they are likely accurate. Vital records include information like the event date and place, and the person's occupation and residence. Vital records also often include information about the person's relatives. For example, birth and marriage records include names of parents and divorce records list the names of children.
From Bob Mitchell: On the 1870 Chesterfield census records, he is listed as M. F., age 30 with his wife as N. S., age 25 and a male son 10 months old with the initial M. The young son is Stephen M. Jackson. The 1880 census has no wife but has several other children in addition to Stephen. Was working as overseer in 1880.
1880 Census Mount Croghan, Chesterfield, South Carolina
By the 1900 Census the above Lou Beason had become Frank's second wife saying she had been married ten years.
1900 Census Mount Croghan, Chesterfield Co., South Carolina
The 1900 census at ancestry.com for Mt. Croghan, Chesterfield Co., South Carolina is very difficult to read. Even the indexer couldn't read Max's name; he is indexed as "??Mallen". Page 17 of the Burch book says that Frank M. Jackson married Lou Beason. This census does give her birth date and the fact that she's had 4 children and only 3 are living and that she's been married 10 years. Obviously she is not the mother of the older children and is a second wife. Mary Elizabeth is named 'Bettie' in this census. All the children's birthdates agree with Frank's children so I know this is the right family even though the father and mother's names are illegible.
Email from Margaret R. Frasier 15 Apr 2010: "I recently researched Lt Jackson for certification for the United Daughters of the Confederacy. I have copies of his Confederate service records, as well as a photo of his grave marker. All of his service records, as well as census records, refer to him as M F Jackson, and he signed his name that way. His grave marker is inscribed M Frank Jackson. It appears that, even though he went by the name "Frank," his first name was actually Maximillian."
