From Jackson Ledger @ HCPD: "It is believed Lucy is the dau of Edward Jackson and Martha Miller. Lucy married Flesher....We have good reason to believe that part of the fly leaf 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 Fleshers who claim to trace to a Jackson woman related to Edward Jackson, they think a daughter of Edward."

Gilmer County History says her parents moved to Harrison County, VA in 1792. Lucinda Flesher is listed among the Names of Heads of Families of Lebanon Twp, Meigs County, Ohio in 1820. Also on that list is Lucinda's brother Samuel M. Jackson and her brother-in-law John Flesher who married Sarah Jackson and Samuel's son-in-law, David Sleeth. (Lucinda's husband William Flesher had died.) "Pioneer History of Meigs County"

Lucinda is found in the Warren County, Ohio 1850 Census living with her son Elias. In that census Lucinda says she was born in New Jersey.

From Matella Prickett Doughman's 1935 work, Supplement, pg 3: "Mrs Elizabeth Higgins Hadley left in her Bible a notation as follows: "These are taken from the tombstones at Wesley Chapel graveyard. Lucinda is my grandmother Jackson Flesher. Lucinda died May 20, 1853 - aged 65y 10m 8d. Mother (Catherine Flesher Higgins) died Jan. 13th 1852, aged 26y 2m 4d. Polly is my Aunt Mary Polly Bush, sister to grandmother, both died same day - Polly died May 21, 1853, aged 63y 9m 21d." Note that tho it is said they died the same day, the dates are one day off - see below.

From Matella Prickett Doughman's 1935 work, Supplement, pg 3: "Iva Conover gives this data concerning "Aunt Polly 'Mary' Bush, who lived near Butterville, Ohio. Her sister Lucinda Jackson Flesher had died (May 20, 1853), and walking home, very fast, as it was getting dark, she became ill, sat down on a log and then fell over dead from a heart attach. (May 21, 1853)."
