A Copy of P. A. Jackson’s Notes

Anno Domini 1887 Jackson Family John Jackson from Hertfordshire, England was one of the expedition of 1627 for the relief of the Huguenots of La Rochelle and believed to be the father of Robert Jackson, the first of the name known to have come to America.  Robert Jackson left England with John Winthrop 1630 - 31 but which John Winthrop is not known.  In with the Massachusetts Bay C, he doubtless was one of the 900 who sailed from Yarmouth on the 7th April 1630.  At any rate the Coat of Arms of his family was emblazoned with two greyhounds and a dolphin crested with a mailed arm raising from a m[issal?], in the hand a tilting spear.

If we seek one reason for his coming to this country we may find many.  At that time, the industry of the people was oppressed by irregular and exorbitant taxation and untimely interferences not in accord with the general intelligence of that period.  Merchants found no protection from pirates or robbers.  Landowners were greatly annoyed by inquiries and examinations into their titles and even the greatest in the land were liable to be heavily fined and probably imprisoned for any malfeasance of thought or action differing from prevailing customs.  Charles I always wanted more money to gratify his selfish tastes and he tried to rule as autocratically as the king of France so between the demands of the King and the oppression of all who were not Roman Catholic, those of a different opinion had but little showing.  We may also imagine the enticement of immense

fortune and the privilege of  worshipping God after the dictates of his own conscience held out to say nothing of personal entreaties from those of his friends who had made up their minds to go. We find Robert Jackson in 1644 one of the first settlers of Hempstead, which was the first English settlement made on the West end of Long Island, under the jurisdiction of and by permission of the Dutch government, and he was closely associated with Rev. Richard Denton a graduate of Cambridge and we find him leading in subscriptions to his support.  He must have been a man of means and high standing in the colony since his name frequently appears in the records of the town as magistrate referee etc. After the capture of New York by the English in 1664 he was one of the deputies from Hempstead to the convention which met in that place (Hempstead) early the following year.  This convention

Page 4

was called to meet at Hempstead for the purpose of framing a code of laws suitable to English people, and it is said Robert favored as the body of the new law what was known as the "Duke’s Laws" and that his views prevailed.  His will can be found recorded in Book A of Deeds in Queens County Clerk’s office and is the oldest there recorded being dated May 25th 1683.  This will was proved October 13, 1685 and he therein provides for Agnes, his sons John and Samuel, his daughter, Sarah who had married a Nathaniel Moore and provision  is also made for the child of Mrs. Martha Jackson Cole – she having died a few years previous.  The children of Robert and Agnes Jackson so far as known were:

  1. John married Hallet
  2. Martha married Cole
  3. Samuel married but supposed to have died without any issue.
  4. Sarah married Moore
Page 5

John Jackson according to the law of primogeniture inherited most of his father’s estate, and was one of the patentees of the town of Hempstead under the patent granted by Gov. Dongan in 1685 and the last surveyor of land included in this grant.  He was sheriff of Queens Co. from 1691 – 1695 and was one of the largest land owners in that county.  Was a member of the Assembly from 1693 – 1709 and also Col. of the Militia.  He was twice married – 1st to Elizabeth Hallet, a daughter of Samuel Hallet of Hallet’s Cove and grand daughter of William Hallet of Dorsetshire, England who moved to Greenwich, Conn.  He married second Elizabeth Seaman. [error; see Notes]  He made his will Aug. 26, 1724 and died in 1725.  He left the following children:

  1. John
  2. James
  3. Sarah
  4. Samuel
  5. Elizabeth
  6. Hannah
  7. Martha and Mary, twins
Page 6

James Jackson – son of Col. John Jackson – married Rebecca Hallet (born Aug 31, 1675) daughter of William & granddaughter of William Hallet from Dorsetshire England.  James Jackson seems to have been a useful citizen - for in addition to being the father of twenty children he was a man generally looked to for advice and was chosen together with Col. Isaac Hicks as referee in a dispute between Massachusetts & Rhode Island relative to the boundary line between them.  The Colony of Rhode Island was so well pleased with their conduct and endeavor to reconcile the people of the two governments that it voted each of them a Silver Tankard of L50 value with the arms of the Colony handsomely engraved thereon.   James and Rebecca Jackson had 20 children - 18 of whom were living at the time of their mother’s death.  His will bears

Page 7

date of Sept. 27, 1735 and he died early in October.   The will proven Oct 26, 1735 and can be found on record in New York City, in Surrogate’s Office Libr 12, p 362 - 366 of Wills.

Joseph Jackson  (No. 13 from James)     (born Feb 9, 1710)  Moved at an early day to Morris Co., N. J. – probably when about 21 years old and before the Indians had left.  Gentleman Wm. N____ds conveyed to Joseph Jackson on Sept 17, 1759, a tract of 162 6/10 acres of land lying on the West Bank of Rockaway River and near the village of Rockaway on which he lived until his death in 1769.  He acquired other property of great value.  Joseph & Ann Jackson had eleven children:

  1. James Jackson Died at 21 years.
  2. William Jackson finally settled in Tenn. prior to the Revolution & raised nineteen out of 26 children.
  3. Elizabeth Jackson  married James Tompkins and removed to Virginia
  4. Mary Jackson died about 16.

5. Stephen Jackson  [1]         died in infancy
6. Capt. Stephen Jackson  (2)
7. Anna Jackson Born Aug. 9, 1746, married (1st) Robert Ayres (2) Josiah Beaman.

9. Phebe Jackson died at Rockaway
10. Benjamin Jackson Born March 5, 1752 Removed to Ohio & died there in June 6, 1842.  Went to Ohio 1814.
11. Daniel Jackson who died in Ohio – aged 84. Ann Jackson, widow of Joseph Jackson, survived him and married (2) Deacon Garrigus & died about 1793.  She was sort of small stature but very bright and full of energy.

Page 11

Benjamin Jackson b. 1752       [s/o Jos & Ann]    Bellville, Ohio (Richland County). He married Aug. 20, 1774 Abigail Mitchell.  Their Children:

  1. Zeba Jackson Born Feb. 2, 1777   Died in Ohio
  2. Isaac Jackson Born Jan. 15, 1779  Died in King County, O[hio?]
  3. Elizabeth Jackson Born Feb 14, 1782 & married Job Allen. One of Elizabeth Jackson’s sons, Isaac Allen, was minister to Hong Kong, China.
  4. Phebe Jackson Born June 23, 1784; died 1889 at the age of 104, 11 months, 26 days at Union Grove Township, Whiteside Co., Illinois. 1st married Isaac Lewis;  2nd married John Vennum
  5. David Jackson Born Sept 30, 1786 & was living in Columbia, Ind. a few years ago.
Page 12

Edward Jackson (No. 4) [s/o of Jos & Ann] married Martha Miller.  It is thought that not only his wife and three children accompanied him but that his cousins - John (and his sons Geo. W. and Edward) and probably his sister Elizabeth & brother William, all left New Jersey together.  They probably made the trip to New Castle, Del. together.  After that it seems Edward and family – John ( son of John 1701) & family traveled westward & William and family and Elizabeth Thompkins & family came South.  There is mention of land being transferred from _________ to Ed Jackson in 1791.  Children of Edward and Martha Miller Jackson:

  1. Jemina, Born 1762        married John Arnold. She died in Harrison Co 1828 [see pg 15]
Page 13

2. Stephen Jackson           Born July 31, 1764 married Elizabeth Pomeroy [see pg 18]
3. Samuel Jackson             Born                        married Smith [see pgs 21 & 27]
4. Benjamin Jackson         Got a fall early in life from which he died
5. Phebe Jackson               married Stout [see pg 22]
6. Mary (Polly) Jackson    twice married 1st Lewis Flint, after his death she married Geo [large question mark by his first name] Bush.  They lived on the waters of Freeman’s Creek above the Jackson Mill.  Went west started to Miami Valley.

Page 14

Edward Jackson’s wife died whilst on a visit to Mrs. Polly Bush & as there were no bridges at that early date and Hacker’s Creek and other streams were so much swollen by rain that they could not cross.  We have good reason to believe that part of the flyleaf in the Bible from which other names were gotten contained possibly the names of other children.  We think it possible there was a Lucy who married a Flesher and Sallie who may have married a Flesher or Hughes or she may have been twice married.  There is a family of Flesher’s who claim to trace to a Jackson woman related to Edward Jackson and they think a daughter of Edward.  There was possibly a William or Jacob but it requires better evidence to positively substantiate.

Page 18

Stephen married Elizabeth Pomeroy on Feb. 14, 1787.  She died April 1852 at grandmother Hannah [Bailey] Jackson’s in Jane Lew.  She passed away without a long illness.  She and her husband are resting on a farm owned at present by cousin Ida Bassel Fleming and very near the home of Grandfather Benjamin Bassel.  Grandmother Elizabeth’s brother settled the city of Pomeroy, O[hio].  She was a kind, good woman and small in stature.  She was once captured by the Indians in New Jersey.  Stephen Jackson, shrewd & a fearless Indian fighter and at the early age of 17 was on his way to join his father with Washington’s forces.  He was present at the battle of Yorktown and wounded before he was 18 years old.  Edward Jackson and two sons, Stephen and Samuel were [pg torn] in the battle of Yorktown. [corner of pg torn] both Stephen and his father

Page 19

were wounded there.  Stephen Jackson was also in the War of 1812.   I heard this from the lips of Hon. Wm. Currence Carper, the husband of Aunt Martha Bassel White.  Steve saw service in this war along with an uncle of  Wm. C. Carper.   My grandfather Jackson remembers his Grandmother wanting Steve to apply for a pension but he said "dam it" he fought for his country. Children of Stephen and Elizabeth [Pomeroy] Jackson

:4. Mary Jackson  b. 1792  married a Tyson.  They lived on Elk – near Fairfield but from there moved to Ohio.  It seems that Mr. Tyson was a peddler – with only his one horse wagon and effects and Mary was told if she married Tyson she would be cut off as one of the heirs of the family.  Owing to this circumstance Mary & her descendants are today unknown to the relatives.

Edward & John Jackson had a nephew – John Jackson who went to Kentucky. See Wm. H. Jackson, Lyndon, Kentucky

Page 40

A. Edward Jackson married Martha Miller. He is buried at the Henry Bassel or as it is now cousin Ida [Bassel] Fleming place. I have heard it said he was buried on Sycamore Creek James H. Jackson, notwithstanding the fact that his name is on a tombstone at the Fleming place. Martha his wife went to visit her daughter Mrs. Mary (Polly) J. Bush and died and was buried there. Her remains would have been taken and placed in the "Jackson Grounds" but at the time of her death the streams were much swollen by heavy rains and there were no bridges over West Fork and Hacker’s Creek then.

Little is known of Edward’s education—any more than that he attended a school before leaving New Jersey

Page 41

could read & write and was good in figures. The bible containing & known to contain correct data – back to the line of his grandfather is well remembered by some of his grandchildren; but it seems that either Mrs. Bush or her brothers who went West fell heirs to it, but most probably Mrs. Bush who nursed her mother in her last sickness.

  1. Mary
  2. Elias & Others.

Very little is known of Wm. Jackson and his children except that they lived on Sycamore in Harrison County until they determined to go West. They started to the Little Miami Valley, Ohio—Early in 1800 but since that nothing has been learned. Recent investigation at Winchester, Ky finds a Romulus & W. D. Jackson who trace to their father Elias & grandfather William which is the nearest trace yet obtained.

Jacob Jackson (son of Edward) married, then went West-possibly settled in Ohio and raised a family.

Stephen Jackson [s/o Edward & Martha] Born July 31, 1764 Married Elizabeth Pomeroy & the site of Pomeroy, Ohio should have descended to her heirs. Stephen was a Captain of a company –although never commissioned [not commissioned until 1807: here is his commission] – and was wounded at the battle of Yorktown & so was his father Edward. He did valuable service under Washington as a scout – making several trips to the Ohio River. He only had a plain education but was noted for his power of deciding quickly and filling to the letter all his promises.

He had many encounters with and killed several Indians. Several of the encounters are still spoken of by relatives in the different branches of the family. He generally wore a hunting shirt – which was about the same as the
