I am looking for a connection between my Jackson ancestors and Confederate General Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson. My grandmother's maiden name was Jackson and she told my father that she was distantly related to Stonewall Jackson (her ancestors hailed from the Deep South, mostly Georgia and North Carolina). I haven't been able to find the connection yet but I know that somewhere, it does exist. If anybody knows about Stonewall Jackson's genealogy or can help at all, it would be great. My Jacksons are believed to have come from Scotland (not positive) in the 16th century and I believe they first settled in Virginia. Here are my Jackson ancestors, in order of descent from Ambrose:
AMBROSE JACKSON, born 1695 in Brunswick, VA and died 12/5/1745 in Brunswick, VA, married ANNE UNKNOWN
HENRY JACKSON, born early/mid-1700's prob, in VA, married MARY UNKNOWN
MARK JACKSON, born prob. in VA married MARTHA WARREN
JETHRO JACKSON, born 1775 in Brunswick, VA and died 2/18/1829 (was murdered) in Upson County, GA, married AMY SLEDGE, born 6/4/1797 in Halifax, NC and died in TN
PHILETUS THOMPSON JACKSON, born 5/17/1821 and died 11/27/1885, married ANN ELIZA BALDWIN, born 5/6/1823 in Amelia County, VA and died 4/17/1898 in Coleman, GA
EDMOND ALBERTUS JACKSON, born 2/10/1861 in Stewart County, GA and died 1/26/1934 in Asheville, NC, married NANNIE PUCKETT, born 1/3/1865 in Randolph County, GA and died 2/1/1905 in Cuthbert, GA
LYNWOOD BALDWIN JACKSON, born 8/20/1896 in GA and died 1974 in Mecklenburg, FL, married 1) LUCILLE SHANNON BREWTON, born 7/28/1897 in Marion County, GA and died 1964 in Greenbrae, CA 2)GLADYS WILLIS 3) MARGUERITE GARLAND
DOROTHY LOUISE JACKSON, born 6/20/1921 in Asheville, NC and died 6/1979 in Greenbrae, CA, married FRANCIS THOMAS FOGARTY, born 12/25/1904 in Springfield, MO and died 7/22/1992 in Greenbrae, CA
Hope this info is helpful.
