    Lewis W. Griffin

    Dear Lew:

    I apologize for my delay in responding to your Prodigy message of 4/19/96 regarding my Reuben and your Coleby. We have corresponded before and I am enclosing copies of my letter and your response I am also enclosing

    1) Reuben Jackson Chronology from which you will see I have noted some of the facts in your letter. 2) Copy of Georgia land grants listing Jackson names. 3) Family Group for my Reuben Jackson

    The tracks of the Reuben Jackson who married Susannah Richardson are pretty clear to me and I have marked those with *. I cannot determine whether there are two other Reubens from the land deeds bu I agree with you that the Reuben, Peter, Randol who each receive 287 1/2 acres "On the Bounty" are very probably brothers. The William listed with Reuben, Peter, Randolph, & Drury is also brother for his land in one deed is adjoined by Graybill, same as Peter's. Peter's land purchases and sells can be followed fairly well but there are undoubtedly more than one Peter.

    The one thing that I have learned from this exercise is that the Bailey family appear closely linked with Peter Jackson group and my Reuben. You will note the appearance of several Bailey's at Peter Jackson's estate sale and that Francis Bailey married Sarah Jackson, Reuben's daughter. Francis and Sarah arc found in 1850 Tallapoosa Cty AL census along with Alford Brewer and John Farguson families from which I am descended. So I plan to focus my Jackson search on Bailey connection as well as searching for more information about Robert and Mary Jackson. A bit disappointed that never received a reply from Gerry. Hope that she is all right.

    I would be very interested in your observations and comments on the enclosed material. Also interested in any further info you have developed on Colbey R. Jackson.

    Sincerely,
    Barry J. Mason

    Dear Sue:

    My wife and I had a very good car trip to Charleston S.C. and as anticipated in our E-mail exchange I did have little over a day of research at Georgia Archives in Atlanta. Did accomplish something but not a lot. Obtained the plats for bounty land grants of 1784 to Reuben, Randol, and Peter Jackson. No real clues there. But found Greene county tax digests somewhat revealing. I am attaching a chart which lists the names in the order of their appearance which enables one to tie Reuben, Peter, Randol and Coalby together more or less. Generally, Shoulderbone is given as waterway which is drained by Shoulderbone Creek. ( I am attaching copy of prodigy message received defining the "Shoulderbone and its derivatives; i.e., the waterway. Also enclosed is copy of map locating Shoulderbone Creek.)

    By way of interpretation, the most important find for me is the very positive identification of Reuben Jackson as trustee for Shadrack Crouch ( Reuben's "father in law") on 1797 Greene Co. Tax List for Capt Phillip Tigner's Company. Published records of this list had butchered the spelling of Shadrack; e.g., "Thadrek Croves." ! If you will remember, my Reuben Jackson probably married Lavina Crouch in year 1790 based upon 1850 census giving 59 as age of first son, John Jackson. According to 1798 Greene Co Tax List, Capt Posey's Co., Shadrack Crouch was taxed for 150 acres on Shoulderbone waterway, adjoined by Hill, original grant made to Walls. In Greene Co Ga. Book 3 Land Deeds page 668 , on February 11, 1803, Shadrack Crouch sells for sum of eighty dollars unto John Crouch " a certain tract of land lying and being on Sholderbone waters state and county aforesaid      containing seventy five acres be the same more or less     "

    Since this Reuben Jackson is listed next to Peter Jackson and both have Ivy as adjoiner and both list original grantee as Miller in the 1797 tax list, a close relationship (father, uncle, brother) is highly likely. In the 1796 Tax list, Capt Kimbrough's district, Peter and Reuben both are listed with Ivy adjoiner, and Reuben with acres of 40 and 33. This Peter Jackson would be the maker of the following deed:

    1/ 18/1796 Peter Jackson of Greene Co. Ga. sells to Reuben Jackson of Greene Co. Ga., 33


    1/18/1796 Peter Jackson of Greene Co. Ga. sells to Reuben Jackson of Greene Co. Ga., 33 acres for 10 pounds. wit: Isaac McClendon, Reuben Smith (Recorded 11/3/1807!) There is no dower!

    In Capt Kimbrough's 1796 tax list, also note that the above Peter Jackson is listed with a property on the Oconee which is also adjoined by Ivy. Here one should remember that on 9/ 16/ 1784, Rheubin (sic) Jackson received 287 1/2 acres in Washington Co. Ga "on the bounty," bounded on SW by Oconee River, all other sides by vacant land. The 40 acres listed for Reuben Jackson in 1787 could be from this grant. But what happened to the other 237 1/2 acres?

    Now focus on deed dated 1/1/1807 between Reuben Jackson of Baldwin Co. Ga. to John Jackson of Greene Co. Ga. for $400, land lying in Greene Co. on waters of Shoulderbone Creek     containing 100 acres, bounded by Robert Wilkerson, Gray & Realy [believed to be Kelly]. Deed was registered March 3, 1807.

    A clearer picture of adjoiners is found in 1/6/1808 when John Jackson of Baldwin Co. Ga. sells to Moses Creadle of Greene Co. 100 acres on waters of Shoulderbone Creek adj. Wilkinson, Ivy, & Kelly. I believe that this is the same land bought from Reuben Jackson in 1/1/1807 deed above. Since Ivy is an adjoiner, it is highly likely that the Reuben Jackson who sold this land was the same that appeared in 1796,& 1797 tax lists with Peter Jackson with land on Shoulderbone waters!

    Randol Jackson appeared with Peter & Reuben Jackson in Captain Kimbrough's 1796 tax list and Capt. Tigner's 1797 tax list with land adjoining Hall but originally granted to Miller (same as that of Peter & Reuben). In Greene Co. land deed dated 9/17/1796 Randol Jackson sold to Benjamin Boice of Greene Co. Ga. for $100, 50 acres on Shoulderbone Creek adjoined by Elic (?),Hog, Hall. Deed was recorded 9/25/1797.

    Tied in with the foregoing is land deed dated 12/25/1804 in which Peter Jackson of Greene Co. Ga. sells to Benjamin Boyce of Greene for $240 in hand paid, 97 3/4 acres on waters of Shoulderbone Creek bounded on north by Jackson's land, & on south by said Boyce, on east by Moreland, on W by Pork's land. Wit John Campbell, William Jackson. Reg. 2/27/1806. The similarity of these two deeds suggests (but does not prove) some connection with the Peter & Randol Jackson who received "On the Bounty" land grants of 287 1/2 acres each 12/8/1784 in Washington Co. Ga. with both grants adjoining Michael Harvey.

    Tying these "Shoulderbone" Jacksons together nicely, as well as, disclosing their probable location are court orders issued 7/25/1801 by the Court of the Ordinary, Greene Co. Ga. page 53 "ordered that Wm Caldwell Esq. be overseer of road leading from Greensborough to Chamber's Mill on Shoulderbone (creek) beg. where Sang's old road crosses the same to Hancock Co. line and that the following be the hands subject to work under him: Peter Jackson, Reuben Jackson, Randolph Jackson, Colby Jackson, Daniel Jackson, William Jackson.... "and page 72, "ordered that John Crouch (son of Shadrack, Reubin's brother in law) be overseer of road leading from or near Mr. Crawfords by the mill beg. at Patillo's prize post to Hancock Co. line & that the following work under him: Coalby Jackson, Randall Jackson, Reuben Jackson, Rowland Jackson.... "(source: Sue Jackson's notes Aug 1997)

    I believe that also of the above group was the Reuben Jackson of Baldwin Co. Ga. who sells for $400 , 101 1/4 acres lot # 357 in the 3rd district on waters of Oconee River to William Welch of Baldwin Co., Ga. wit: Arch'ld McKoy, Charley Whitehead.

    Unfortunately, the 1793 Tax book for Greene Co, Capt Edmund Crowder's District lists Randolph, William, Peter, Reuben, and Dury, Jackson which confuses the issue, but I believe that these names constitute what I will call "The Powell'sCreek /WarrenCo/Hancock Co. "group' Almost all of the remaining land deeds in Wilkes Co., Washington Co', Hancock Co', and Warren Co' can be traced to that group'

    It would appear from all of the foregoing that the Peter Jackson with tax lands in Greene & Hancock Counties could be the father of Randol, Reuben, Colby, Daniel, William and probably a John.

    Obvious puzzle pieces missing are:
    1) When and how were the "On the Bounty" land grants made to Reuben, Randol, and Peter Jackson disposed of? Where are the records? In none of the deeds recorded do we find mention of the 287 1/2 acres awarded'
    2) How were the lands taxed? Was only cleared land taxed?
    3) Where were the wives of the "Shoulderbone" Jackson crowd? Both Reuben and Randol known to have married'

    Sue, I will be sending copies of this to others researching Jackson line' Maybe it will provide you with some helpful clue' Let me know if there are questions' Would also appreciate any comments'

    Best regards. Sincerely,

  • Research Note*: 3 August 2007; Summary of References to Reuben Jackson(s) in Georgia
    By Duane W. Melton
    8/3/2007

    Unknown     A Reuben was a Revolutionary War Soldier from Georgia:
    http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/county/taylor/rev/garevroster9.htm & http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/county/taylor/rev/garevroster.htm . There was a Reuben Jackson from Henrico Co., VA 1817-1823 who filed a pension affadavit: http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/va/henrico/military/revwar/pensions/jackson-r.txt?o_xid=9872&o_lid=9872&o_xt=9872&offerid=0%3a694%3a0 .
    There were two Reuben Jacksons who are identified as getting land grants:
    Jackson, Reuben. Private. Va. 3 Sep. 1796. 200 acres.
    Jackson, Reubin. Private. Ga. 22 Mar. 1785. 250 acres.
    Ancestry.com. Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006. Original data: Bockstruck, Lloyd DeWitt. Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants. Baltimore, MD, USA: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1998. http://content.ancestry.com/iexec/?htx=view&r=an&dbid=49315&iid=FLHG_RevWarBountyLandGrants-0299&rc=1170,1427,1337,1463;1366,1426,1527,1461&fn=reuben&ln=jackson&st=d&ssrc=&pid=90244

    1784     Peter Jackson is granted 287.5 acres in Washington Co., GA [Grant Bk FFF, p. 37]. Randal Jackson is granted 287.5 acres in Washington Co. [Grant Bk FFF, p. 41] And Reuben Jackson is granted 287.5 acres in Washington Co. [Grant Bk DDD, p. 275] Peter's grant was west of Michael Harvey. South of Michael Harvey's grant was Randolph Jackson's grant. East of Randolph's grant was James Harvey's grant. Beaver Dam Creek flowed through the southeast corner of James Harvey's land. This area of Washington County ended up in the south part of Greene County, and near Putnam County. Beaver Dam Creek flows into the Oconee. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    1784-1790     Reuben Jackson is listed in HEADRIGHTS GRANTED BY THE GEORGIA COLONIAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS FROM 1754 TO 1800 as printed in the "Story of Georgia and The Georgia People" by George Gillman Smith ©1901. It indicates he as well as other Jacksons received land grants in Wilkes and Washington Counties during the indicated time frame. http://genealogytrails.com/geo/headrights.html

    1786     Reuben is on a list of male members of the Long Creek Baptist Church in Warrenton, Warren County, Georgia. He had been accepted by letter as was Sussana Jackson on a list of female members. A Mary Jackson had been received by letter and was deceased. A Daniel Jackson had been received by a promised letter and then excluded. http://www.rootsweb.com/~gawarren/church.htm

    1789     Reuben is listed on page 29 the Georgia Tax Index in the Gilbert District of Greene Co., GA. Jeffery, Alice. Peter and Randolph are also listed on page 29 and William on page 27 for the same district. Georgia Tax Index, 1789-1799 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 1998

    1793     Randolph, Peter, Colesby, and Reuben Jackson were adjacent to each other on the 1793 Greene Co. GA Tax Digest Part 1, in Kimbro's District. A newspaper reference said they were defaulters. These four appear to have been brothers. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    1793     Randolph, William, and Peter Jackson were adjacent to each other on the 1793 Greene Co. GA Tax Digest Part 2, in Crowder's District. Reuben Jackson was also listed in Crowder's District. William owned land adjacent to Henry Graybill. Peter owned land adjacent to James Alford, and also land in Washington Co. GA adjacent to Thomas Joils. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    1794     Reuben is shown on page 68 of the GA 1792-1819 Tax Lists Index in Hatcher’s District of Warren County Georgia (Ancestry.com Georgia Census 1790-1890).

    1796     Peter, Ran, Reuben, Colby, and a second Peter Jackson, were all in Kimbrough's District in the 1796 Greene Co. GA Tax Digest. Colby did not own land. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    18 Jun 1796      Peter Jackson to Reuben Jackson, for 10 pounds, 33 acres. Wit: Isaac McClendon, Reuben Smith, recorded 3 Nov 1807. (Greene Co. GA Deed Bk 4, page 543) http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    1797     Peter, Reuben, Colby, Randol, a second Peter, and a second Colby were all in Tigner's District in the 1797 Greene Co. GA Tax Digest. Reuben also paid taxes for Shadrek Groves. One of the Colby's also paid taxes for Jesse Jackson. The other Colby owned no land.
         http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    6 Dec1801     Reuben is on a list of males taken August 1799 and continued until October 1819 in records of the Long Creek Baptist Church in Warrenton, Warren County, Georgia. He was accepted by letter and dismissed on the date shown. A Sussanah Jackson was similarly received and dismissed December 26, 1801. Its possible Reuben and Sussanah/Sussana were husband and wife. http://www.rootsweb.com/~gawarren/church.htm

    21 Dec 1801     On December 21, 1801 Isaac Jackson was issued a passport of recommendations of inhabitants of Hancock and Warren Co, GA to travel west with family. Traveled with Thomas Toler and family, Isham Jackson and family, Reuben Jackson and family, Frances Jackson, James Murphy and Thomas Abbott. Settled first in Wilkinson Co, moved to Amite CO, MS on Bear Creek near the Liberty and Woodville Road. http://mykindred.com/cloud/TX/getperson.php?personID=I6475&tree=mykindred01
         This is likely the Reuben Jackson living in Warren Co., GA from at least 1786 to December 1801. This reference to a passport is replicated on family trees showing Reuben receiving a passport with the other names mentioned. Some trees show this for the Reuben Jackson who married Lavina Crouch. This is likely incorrect and is most likely the Reuben Jackson who went to MS.

    30 Nov 1805     Van Loftin of Clark Co. to Reuben Jackson of Greene for $60, 31.5 acres on Shoulderbone Creek adjacent to Wilkinson, Boyce, and Van Loftin. Wit: Robert Wilkinson, Francis Watts, recorded 21 Aug 1807 (Greene Co. GA Deed Bk 4, page 584) http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p623.htm

    Subject: Estate of Reuben Jackson 1832 Henry GA

Bailey, Uriah Alexander, Allford Brewer(?), Peter Jackson and Levina Jackson (the widow) - post a $500 bond for administration, allheirs and distributors of Reuben Jackson deceased viz. the said John and Peter as sons of the said Levina widow and relict and the saidFrancia A. Bailey, Uriah Alexander, and Allford Brewer each in right of their wifes as daughters of the said deceased.Witnesses are Thomas Harper and William H. Green.

    Brother Beebe:
    I send you the obituary notice of my father, Benjamin Cook, who departed this life on the 17th of October, 1856, aged 82 years and 8 months. He was born in North Carolina in 1774 and his father lived there until he was about ten years old and then moved to Elbert Co., Ga. He married Delilah Bullard. In 1805 they both joined the church by experience at Holly Springs in Elbert County, Ga. and were baptized by Dozier Thornton. In March 1812 his wife died and then he married Sarah Brown and in 1814 moved to Jasper Co., Ga. and joined the church at Concord and lived there till he was ordained a deacon and served the church till 1825, then he moved to Pike Co., Ga. where he and his wife were two of the constituting members of Sardis Church and he lived there till about the time of the split with the Missionaries and Primitives and then he took a letter and joined the church at Harmony and lived in good order until his death. His disease was an affection of the kidneys and old age. He left a great many children and grandchildren, but he lived to see most of his children join the church. We do not mourn as those who have no hope. -Thomas Cook4
