Rebecca's parents moved "to the wilderness of Morris County, New Jersey, May 31, 1722". And her father's forge was sold there at Sheriffs Sale in 1753. 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.
