  • ID: I1
  • Name: David Jackson
  • Surname: Jackson
  • Given Name: David
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1 Aug 1793 in North Carolina 1
  • Death: 4 Oct 1848 in Overton Co., Tennessee 1
  • _UID: A05B3630AB983143A32197E9509A9DFADDE2
  • Note:
    This Chart of David Jackson and his wife Jane is based on the Bible Records found at USGENWEB Johnson County: .

    David's birth location of North Carolina is taken from the 1900 census record of his son John M. Jackson.

    There is a John Jackson found in "History of the Carlock Family" at some church records pertaining to Carlock's in Overton Co. Mention is made that John Jackson was church clerk in 1826. Assumption is made that he must have been at least 21 years old; therefore, was born 1805 or earlier. So David was not the only Jackson in the area at the time. This John, Clerk of the Church, could possibly be a brother of David. The church was Cave Spring Church, Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Tennessee.

    Several of David and Jane's children have the middle initial of C. which could possibly be for Copeland as there is a land grant connection between these families. In this family line are several middle names of Sutton. I've not yet (Mar 2007) found a connection to a Sutton family.

    There is a land grant #5602 from State of Tennessee to John S. Copeland and David Jackson. Would be interesting to find this.

    The following was posted to the Jackson-Clay-Overton-co-tn-msg boards 2 Jul 2000 by Reda Bilbrey, Overton County Archivist.
