I’ve been searching for my GG Grandfathers parents and siblings for a very long time. I’m at a dead end for sure. I was always told that he was born in Oglethorpe county Georgia and I can’t find any records of that. In census I first find him in 1850 in Fayette county Alabama living with William and Abigail Jefferies I do not know if he is related to them or not. Others have thought that he was the son of William and Susan Jackson but he can’t be because he would have been because he would share the same year birth of another child they had and the days would not be correct. In census I’ve found it states his father was born in Virginia and mother in Georgia. So I’m think his father came during the land lottery to Georgia. I also think that his father may have come with the Methodism group from Virginia to Georgia and then to Alabama because I also have family that did that. His middle name Freeman could be a family name as well because I show him related to Freeman’s as well. I am very stumped where to turn. If anyone knows anything about my family I would appreciate your help. Thank you Kathy

Hi Kathy,

You can search the 1825 tax records for Oglethorpe County to see which Jackson's were in Oglethorpe the year he was born.  Year: 1825 Tax Digest:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSLZ-V9L9-3?i=8&cat=170269

In order to have been eligible for the Georgia Land Lottery, a person had to be a resident for three years.

The 1827 Land Lottery shows only one Jackson who was a resident of Oglethorpe as a fortunate drawer:  Jackson, Lucy wid.[widow] of Capt Rhodes District drew land in Section 1, District 21, Lot No. 83 in Lee County.  http://files.usgwarchives.net/ga/deeds/1827/sur/surn-ij.txt 1827

You might search the land records or tax records of Lee County.

Also, there were Jacksons documented from Brunswick County, Virginia in Hancock County, Georgia.  See:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jackson-9700

Some of his sons migrated to Alabama.
