Info about Jasper Worth Tackett

+5 votes
My children want to know more about their Tackett ancestors.  Jasper Worth Tackett deserted his family (wife Mary Penelope Hair Tackett and 3 boys, 1 girl) when my dad was two years old.  I think we are black Dutch, whatever that is.  I have the names of the 3 boys and 1 girl.  My dad was born in 1901.  And their descendants if anyone needs to know.

You told me to tell where my dad was born.  He was born in Dublin, Texas.

Thanks for the Dublin, Texas location.  Names would still help, since there appear to have been lots of Tacketts in Texas from 1850 on...smiley

It will help greatly if you could provide a country and locale (city, county, etc.)  where your dad was born.  Also, your Dad's name as well as his siblings' names will aid in pinpointing the searches.

Thanks for your interest in WikiTree and your question here on G2G.

Dad's name was R. E. Tackett.  His mother didn't give him a name, only initials.  When he was in the navy in the 1920's they listed him as R (only) E (only) and it came out  in papers as Ronly Eonly.  Snafu.  His brother had 3 names Steven Henry Adrian, and the other brother was Chester Oswald.  Adrian lived in Floydada in the 1950's, and Chester lived in Ft Worth most of his adult life.  The girl Dee lived somewhere in Texas, I would have to look it up.  That's all that we know of our Tackett line.  When Jasper Worth Tackett deserted his family in around 1903, Daddy was only two, and everyone lost track of the Tackett line.  My Green history goes back to the 1600's, but the Tacked history goes back to 1901.
