Sara,

I'm not related, but can provide some data that might help you in your search. I do have a question...do you know where in MI or IA the family may have been in 1850?

You seem to have the family down since then.

Lucinda seems to have been a Black Widow. Ha!..or Hmm! Anyway...

Per the Crawford Co. Marriage Records:

Edward F. Jackson married Ava J. Phillips, 2 Mar 1884, Utica Twp. Recorded in State Vol. 2, No. 2082. Edward F. is recorded as the son of James and Luzina (Hopman) Jackson. Ava the daughter of George and Mary (Unknown) Phillips.

Per the Grant Co., WI Marriage Records compiled by the Grant Co. Genealogical Society and Parents of Grant Co., WI Marriages, compiled by Kathleen Grattan Wolfe:

Edward F. Jackson married Hattie Stevenson, 30 Jun 1894. Recorded in Grant Co. Bk. 12, Pg. 30. Edward was recorded as the son of James and Lucina (Unknown) Jackson. Hattie the daughter of James and Mary (Unknown) Stevenson.

These would both certainly seem to be the same person and the Crawford Co., WI marriage lists Lucinda/Luzina's maiden name as Hopman. Could be Hoppman, Hopmann, etc. Or, was it Hoffman? It would seem that some inter-family marriages took place here.

Per “Births, Deaths, Marriages and other Genealogical Gleanings from Newspapers for Crawford, Vernon and Richland Counties, Wisconsin, 1873 – 1910,” compiled by Vernon D. Erickson, Heritage Books, Inc.:

Mr. E. Jackson, married Eva Phillips of Mt. Sterling, Mar. 2, 1884. Husband from Gays Mills. Recorded in the 12 Mar 1884 issue of the Crawford Co. Journal.

Ed F. Jackson, married Hattie Stevenson, June 30, 1894 in Boscobel [Grant Co.]. Bride and groom were from Mt. Sterling. Recorded in the 11 Jul 1894 issue of the Crawford Co. Advance.

Per “Genealogical Events from Newspapers for Crawford, Vernon and Grant Counties, Wisconsin, 1870 – 1901,” compiled by Vernon D. Erickson, Heritage Books, Inc.:

Mrs. Lucinda Fisher, died Mar. 8, 1897 at home near Gays Mills. Aged 73 years. She was the mother of Charles Fisher, Mrs. Elmer E. Stephenson and Edward Jackson of Gays Mills; Mrs. _ W. Schafer of Bryantsburg, IA and 1 son in Texas. Recorded in the 18 Mar 1897 issue of the Kickapoo Chief. (Also see citation for Mrs. Jackson)

Mrs. Jackson, died Mar. "9," 1897 at home of daughter, Mrs. Elmer Stevenson, in Gays Mills. Recorded in the 18 Mar 1897 issue of the Kickapoo Chief. (Also see citation for Mrs. Lucinda Fisher)

Interesting, two obits in the same paper with different names.

Hope this helps narrow down the search.
