Trying to find information about my Dad William George Jackson

Surnames: Jackson,Ballance
Hello my name is Michelle Jackson and I am the daughter of the late William George Jackson who passed away when I was 3 years old in 1970. My grandparents were Ulrich Jackson and Elsie Ballance Jackson who both passed away before I was born in 1961 and 1965. I also had a Uncle Donald Jackson who passed away in the late 1980's. Uncle Don along with my great aunt Hulda always sent me such beautiful cards and letters and told me my Dad would have been proud of me when I was growing up. I always enjoyed getting a letter in the mail from them or talking on the phone. My mom Betty Jackson passed in 2001 and I do not have any family members that are still alive on her side of the family to give me any information about my dad's side of the family. I only have 3 pictures of my dad one with him and his dad Ulrich in a Military picture, one of him when he was a baby and one of him standing in front of a home in the early 60's. I know he had been married before my mom told me I had half sister named Sherry Ann Jackson from Houston Texas but I have never been able to locate her. I've seen some post from Linda Jackson Muff who I hope is my cousin I replied to the post but it looks like she hasn't left any messages in a few years so Im hoping she may check this board. I would love any information on my dad and grandparents and would love to meet any cousins if they would like to meet me. I live in Nags Head Nc and I have a great husband Eric and 3 great kids Im 40 now so I thought I better get on the ball and try to put a tree together for my kids. I was sad to notice most of my family passed in their 40's and 50's so it is hard to find much information. If anyone has any information at all I would be so grateful. Thank you Michelle Jackson Stagemeyer

I know this post is almost 5 years old but I'm going to respond anyway. My mother is Jean Jackson Sadler, your dad's sister. She is alive and well and living in Lexington, NC. I am Susan, her daughter. I never knew my grandmother Elsie as she died three weeks before I was born. I don't remember your father as I was five when he died. My mother tells me he was very artistic and smart. She has some pictures of him. Her email is sadler_12@hotmail.com. My email is macswife@hotmail.com. I haven't seen Don's girls since his funeral in 1988. I hope you are doing well. It's fun putting the family history together.

I lived and grew up in Poplar Branch and remember your Grandmother Elsie Jackson, she was a very elegant lady, I remember her going to church in her fur mink stole that had mink bodies hanging down and I thought she was a millionaire!!!! She run a Hunting and Fishing lodge and my Father would take out hunting or fishing parties for her. I remember your Uncle Don and his wife Jean and her sisters Alice and Sue Sutton. I only remember your Dad slightly as both he and Don were grown and away when I grew up. If you find any pictures of Mrs. Elsie or her home would you please post them to the Currituck site? Just send them to Kay Lynn Sheppard and she will post them. Mrs. Elsie was such a part of Poplar Branch I think it would be great to get pictures of her. I don't ever remember your Grandfather Uriah but would love to hear what kind of information you have on him.
I am so happy you found your family and Mrs. Elsie would be pleased that ya'll are together.
Let me know what you find out about your Grandparents.
Regards
Judy Merrell Brickhouse
