Forrester, Reeves, Waggoner and Jackson

+2 votes
I am trying to tie all these surnames together in my tree.  They intermarried for generations and I am so confused.   I came across a Mr. Luther Harrison Jackson who married 1st.  Winnie Forrester Jackson, and after her death, married Josie J. Forrester.  My search for Margaret D. "Maggie" Jackson's parents and siblings are linked but I am stumped.  Any one have any hints?

Although I am a "newbie" or rookie genealogist, I saw this post and contacted you via private message on Wiki regarding the dispute I noted between you and another user on a common ancestor's profile and have yet to receive a reply. I worked several hours and filled out that profile (i.e. named the children & mothers, added memorial #s, etc.) & proposed a merge (Forrester-1309 & Forrester-1314). None-the-less, neither of you have approved the merge to date. Above you have cited no regions or dates to work with specifically. That would be most helpful in posing questions to garner answers & obtaining best results. ( But I can assure you that you will see repetition of names due to those named for fathers, siblings, etc. in addition to, "surnames" often serving as "middle names"). Secondarily, my thought is that a great deal of the problem has to do with the stigma associated with entering the "full names" of those having done as you state above & indeed intermarried. I don't re-write history or make judgments -it is what it is and that's what I enter on my profiles. Lastly, with the fluctuations and various spellings of names, locale & time-lines even if estimated are essential and I have found multiple errors on Findagrave, so use more than one source.This is my patriarchal lineage and if I can be of further assist again, I offer you any help I may be able to provide.
