John's wife, Elizabeth twice sued for divorce from John alleging cruelty and adultery among other things and these cases may be found in the records of Virginia, Fauquier County Index #1848-002 and Index #1852-002. It appears from these suits and from subsequent research by various other folks that John had children by other women. These children do not carry the name Jackson but the names of their mothers and may be the source of several persons in much later years discovering through DNA that somewhere in their line there was a Jackson father.
