Facts and Events
William and his wife Prudence were found on the records of Rahway/Plainfield Monthly Meeting along with William's brother James and James' wife Mary. All their names were spelled 'Jacson'. These two families were the only Jacsons recorded in the Rahway/Plainfield Monthly Meeting record of births.

In the above records the dates for the children's births - the day and the year are the same; the month I believe varies because of misinterpretation of the Quaker dating system. With spelling like Jacson, perhaps someone misread Jeremy for James or vise-versa.
Earlier I had taken William's death info from a rootsweb chart saying he had died in Kentucky. But I have become increasingly uneasy about this and have removed that death record awaiting verification by any means that the William who died in KY is the son of James Jackson and Rebecca Hallett. Until better verification is found, I cannot assume that.
I do not know yet about the above reference to Phebe being cleared to Anson Co when she was about 25 years old. Other records have Phebe married to David Vail. This requires more research to verify one way or the other.
