Descendants of William Jackson of North Carolina

Union Flag of England and

Generation #2

Elizabeth (1William) Jackson

Belief that Nathan and Elizabeth were the parents of Mary J. Smith comes from circumstantial evidence. In the 1860 Franklin Co MS Census, the widow Miriam is found living next door to Thomas Burke. His daughter, Margaret, married Perry J. Case in 1869. Perry's mother was Mary J. Smith, and Miriam is reported to have been the last wife of Nathan Smith. Did Margaret Burke meet Perry when he came to visit his grandfather's house?

Elizabeth Jackson was born 9/24/1801, reportedly in Georgia. And in about 1816, Elizabeth migrated in the company of her family to Lawrence Co MS.

On 1/18/1821 in Lawrence Co MS, Elizabeth married Nathan Smith, Sr. b. 1790 Moore Co NC. This was Nathan's second marriage.

In about 1825, the family migrated to Franklin Co MS where Elizabeth and Nathan were enumerated in the 1830 and 1840 censuses. Elizabeth died before 9/1847 in Franklin Co MS.
