This is to make available what I have learned about the various Jackson lines who were either born, lived or died in Wood County and my effort to make further connections. Also note that as research progressed for the folks in Wood County, their ancestors who were NOT in Wood County were also added to the database.

I will be making a list of links to the Earliest Known Ancestors (EKAs) of each line and indicate DNA info when that info is available at FTDNA. I would appreciate if other members knowing about DNA info from other sources would add that info to the page.

While this profile is very new, it will have just a list of EKAs. As the work progresses, the list will become links to profiles on WikiTree.

Also will add to this page a list of some of the most prominent other surnames connected to these Jacksons.
