Excerpt from National Register of Historic Places, OMB No, 102400018; Four Stairs, Great Falls, Fairfax, VA, pgs 15, 16: "John Jackson, Sr., his wife Sarah, and son John Jackson, Jr., (1737-1819) held a three-lives lease, executed in 1769, on 400 acres on Scott's Run near the Potomac River below Difficult Run. Their home was built on the stone and log ruins of an early settler's cabin. John Jr. and his second wife, Ann Wiggenton, were married in 1765. Seven children were born to the couple, including John Theodore (1769-1831) who married Verlinda (ca. 1782-1863), Spencer (1773-1830) who married Penelope Ratcliffe (died 1837), and Richard (1778-1823) who married Jane Donaldson (1796-1872). . .

"When the Falls Bridge Turnpike Company was organized in 1813 to build a direct turnpike that would connect Georgetown with Leesburg, the Jackson brothers subscribed. John Jackson served on the board of directors and Spencer contracted to build the road as it passed over Difficult Run and along their lands."
