President Andrew Jackson had older brothers, Hugh and Robert. Hugh joined the patriot regiment commanded by Col. William R. Davie. Soon thereafter, Hugh died from heat exhaustion at the Battle of Stono Ferry. Can anyone tell me if Hugh was married and had children?
Phoebe Deborah Jackson was born 1802 near Staunton, VA. She claimed to be the second cousin of Pres. Andrew.
Phoebe's father was Reuben Harris Jackson. I think Reuben Harris may have been the son of Hugh Jackson, Andrew's brother. Does anyone know anything about this Hugh Jackson?
