John G. Jackson
The village of Scales Mound is peopled by quite a number of gentlemen in good circumstances, retired from the active labors of life. Among these may be properly mentioned the subject of this memoir, who for many years followed mining and farming combined, and reaped therefrom a competence. In mining, especially, he has had a thorough experience, and ever took a genuine interest in matters connected with this industry. He is considerable of a mineralogist, having a large collection of geological specimens, which he preserves with great affection. He is a man highly esteemed among his fellow-citizens, and has been a valued member of his community.

There came to Northern Illinois during the early days numbers of men from Cornwall County, England. To that region our subject traces his ancestry, and was himself born there in the town of Pool, Feb. 11, 1822. His early advantages were limited, and he followed mining from a boy of nine years up. At the age of fifteen he did a man's work, operating in the copper and tin mines of England until reaching man's estate. At the age of twenty-five he was married, May 21, 1847, at Pool, to Miss Jane, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Davey) Harvey, who were born and reared in that locality. . .

Two weeks after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Jackson embarked on the sailing-vessel "Siddons" from Liverpool, and after a voyage of six weeks and two days landed at Staten Island. . .


Quote from John's bio "We next find him searching for gold in Whitehall, Va., where he remained three years and operated as foreman for the Philadelphia gold mining concern - W.A. Budd & Co." Finally found him in 1850 in Virginia!! And note the Isaac Budd from Pennsylvania living with him!

I thought Whitehall was in Frederick County - and it probably is but that is not where they were living! It is not too unusual to live in one county and work in another - but Frederick and Louisa aren't adjacent.

And by 1852 they were in Wisconsin where Mary was born:
