These Jacksons resided and intermarried with my Allendale Gills.  Anyone know where they were from before Richland Co., S.C.?

A Philip Jackson had a 250 acre land grant surveyed in what became Richland Co at "Green Hill" in 1740, and the creek nearby was called Jackson Creek, before it later became known as Gill Creek (Columbia and Richland County, John Hammond Moore, USC Press, Columbia 1993, p10).  Gill Creek is named for James Gill, the progenitor of the Allendale Gills.

Joseph Jackson born <c1740 NC. Barnwell Deed Book? Page 197 Indenture 1 Sept. 1783 between Joseph Jackson of Craven Co., province of NC and Sarah Harrington (Herrington) and Jesse Jackson daughter and son, I give to them a tract of land 500 acres situated in SC in Granville County on the lower three runs waters of Savannah River (FOC: Allendale Co. today) the grant being this the sixth day of December 1768. Wit: Anthony Vingett, Joseph Jackson, Junr., John Jackson. Proved Sept. 1783, reg. Craven Co. Book 2 page 62. Rec. Barnwell 25 July 1814.

Two clearly identified children of Joseph Jackson born <c1740 in NC

  1. Sarah Jackson born <c1762 married a Harrington.
  2. Jesse Jackson born <c1760 NC, 1st in SC lower 3 runs, Boggy Gut

Is this the same Joseph Jackson below? I  (GSF) believe this to be Joseph Jackson, Jr. above who witnessed the Deed. I never found Jesse Jackson or a Herrington/Harrington on even a voter list. Joseph Jackson shows up and seems to possess the land on Boggy Gut, Rubens Branch, and Bentley Branch. Sarah and Jesse are stated as children, as in the one above. Joseph Jackson born <c1762 married Rebecca Dicks/Dykes/Dyches. Her mother was Leah Brooker who appears to have been the common law wife of William Dyches. A family tale has Rebecca nursing Joseph back to health from injuries he had sustained in a war. There was also a reference to an age difference (GSF).

Why did neighbor Arthur Fennel deed personal things in 1811 to children of Joseph Jackson for Love & Affection, unless one of his daughters was their mother, first wife of Joseph Jackson?).  In this deed is an illegible phrase that I pored over with a magnifying glass. It reads “to my wife’s son’s children.” Arthur had married the widow of Joseph Jackson of Craven County, NC. The relationship of Arthur and Joseph is stepfather/stepson (GSF)

Wit: John his~mark Brooker, John Golikely. Rebecca Jackson is selling to her son-in-law. John Brooker at some point became the Rev. John Brooker and helped to found many Baptist churches including Mount Arnon. He was a half brother to Rebecca Dyches Jackson. The Rev. John Brooker and the Rev. J.J. Lawton began preaching at Jesse Miller’s mill in 1835 and continued there for two years. This was near present day Baldoc, SC. Services were then removed to near present day Mount Arnon Church because a majority of the attendees were from that area. Services continued there for two more years until they constituted Mount Arnon Baptist Church on the first Sunday in June 1839.

Children listed in Barnwell deed E288: Arthur hisAmark Fennel & his wife deed to children of Joseph Jackson for love goodwill and affection 12 head of cattle, mare named Manners of Black Color, hogs, feather bed, spinning wheel, 2 pots, dutch oven, thru? Chorse?, furniture, 2 goats. Wit: Wm. Boyles, Wm. hisXmark Fennel 3/1/1811; 3/19/1811 Joseph Jackson apparently married one of Fennel's daughters.

Three known children of Joseph Jackson (and Rebecca Dyches Jackson) listed in deed of Arthur Fennel: Rebecca Jackson was a founding member of Mount Arnon Church. The first Jackson to be buried at Mount Arnon was Sarah Mariah Jackson Ferguson in 1896. Apparently, the Jacksons had a cemetery on their land along Boggy Gut which today shows on maps as Millers Creek. Much of this area is now Clarendon Farms. Bentleys Branch on old maps was Reubens Branch. The names of the two have been switched on modern maps. The black church in Appleton was called Bentleys on the Hill because Bentleys Branch cut toward Appleton. Today the branch is listed on maps as Reubens Branch.  Three known children: Sarah Ann, William Andrew, Jessie Capewell

  1. Sarah Ann Elizabeth Jackson born <1811 married Jesse Miller, 1st Deacon of Mt. Arnon Church (Allendale) Does this refer to this or another Sarah Ann Jackson?:(No, this Sarah Ann Jackson is a separate individual as seen by the following Deed.) Barnwell Deeds CC562 13 Jan. 1859 Harriett Cadden (or Caddin) deed of gift to my sister Sarah Ann Jackson: 6 cows, horse, yearling, steer, Wit: John A. Hayes.  Both Jesse and Sarah Ann Miller are buried at Mount Arnon. Their fallen grave stones attest to the fact that they were founding members of Mount Arnon.
  2. Wm. Andrew Jackson born <1811 married Lucy Jackson (Lucia Olivia Jackson) born >1820. Lucy Jackson's mother is unknown, but her grandmother was Olivia Savage Jackson whose husband was most likely Richard Jackson (there was a Richard, Sr. and a Richard, Jr. and I can’t determine which was her husband. and Olivia Savage had a sister Barbara Savage Edenfield (Guy Simeon Ferguson says Wm. Edenfield's wife Barbara was not an Allen, and I agree.). Olivia (or Olive) was a daughter of Parker Savage. Lucy Jackson gave the land (1.1 acres in 1857) for the present day Mt. Arnon Church. Wm. Edenfield sold to Lucy O. Jackson Barnwell Deeds DD324 12/13/1845 - 2/4/1850 for $60 150 acres by Jackson's Branch, Wit: B. Edenfield.  Lucy O. Jackson had a sister, Nancy Ann? Jackson who married Miles Stinson. They either lived with Lucy O. and her family, and the grandmother, Olivia “Olive” Savage Jackson, or close by. Miles was a member at Mount Arnon from 1846 to 1866 and kept its minutes hot with his escapades. He managed to escape both the 1850 and 1860 Census. Nancy Jackson Stinson’s granddaughter, Ann Rebecca Hall would marry Lucy O. Jackson Jackson’s grandson, Robert Simeon Ferguson .   Known children of Wm. Andrew Jackson and Lucy O Jackson Jackson:
    1. Sarah Mariah Jackson born c1840 (maybe as early as 1832) d 1896 married Josiah F. Ferguson. These are the great grandparents of Guy Simeon Ferguson. Mariah stood over six feet tall and her first cousin once removed and daughter-in-law Ann Rebecca Hall Ferguson said she had the most beautiful flaming mane she ever saw. She stressed the fact that Cuz’n Mariah was not fat but a big-boned woman who never bit her tongue. With her height and size, she could have “bested” most men of her day. Mariah had long been known as a spinster or old maid when she began receiving the attentions of Josiah Ferguson. The church fathers at Mount Arnon were outraged and threatened her with excommunication if she did not reject his attentions. Apparently, Mariah, true to form, told the church fathers what they could do and she was excommunicated. I have three dates of birth for both Josiah and Mariah. He could have been 17, 18, or 19, and she could have been 32, 34, or 36. My father, Guy Benson Ferguson, said that Josiah may have stood 5 feet 1 inch tall on his tallest day and weigh 125 pounds if he fell in the creek with his clothes on or got caught in a down pour. Still, Mariah married Josiah who was half her age and half her size! She named her first child Robert Simeon Ferguson after her first cousins, Robert Miller and Simeon Miller, the sons of Jesse Miller and Sarah Ann Elizabeth Jackson Miller. They had been listed in the 1850 Census as members of Lucy Jackson’s household as one person, Robert Simmons.  Josiah and Mariah Jackson Ferguson are buried at Mount Arnon as is their daughter, Georgia Freelane Ferguson, and son, Robert Simeon Ferguson, and his wife, Ann Rebecca Hall “Annie” Ferguson. Six of the eleven children of Sim and Annie Ferguson are also buried there.
    2. Jane Florence Jackson born c1840 married William Brunson and they removed to Screven County, GA about 1879 and some of their Brunson descendants remain there to this day. William and Jane Jackson Brunson are buried in the Buck Creek Methodist Church Cemetery, Screven County, GA.
    3. Olive Rebecca Jackson was the youngest of the three and married Paul Allen. Lived near Allendale, SC and is buried in the Allen family Cemetery within the town limits of Allendale. The cemetery sits within Collum’s Lumber Mill. She’s so Asleep in Jesus that she’s sawing logs!

-- Family of Richard Jackson, Sr. <1707-c1751, Richland Co., SC --

Family of Richard Jackson. There are six identified children of Richard Jackson b<1707, dc1751 of Richland Co., SC. One has a firm upper limit on birth year, which places the 1707 limit above. Mary Jackson could have been either just turned an adult c1754, or she could have been born about then, depending on whether she was born very early or very late. The family, as pieced together by Mrs. Theresa Hicks, genealogist of Columbia, SC, is as follows:

Richard Jackson, Sr. b<c1707 dc1751, wife Mary, resided Richland Co., SC. Probably from Virginia?  There are records of a Richard Jackson in Chesterfield Co., VA, but I cannot link the two.

1739. Hugh Murphy under a precept dated 13 Apr. 1739 had 150 acres surveyed near the Congarees which bounded: Capt. Thomas Brown & Richard Jackson. Therefore Richard Jackson was in SC before this date predating the arrival of James Gill. What was the relationship between Richard Jackson & Hugh Murphy? The will of Hugh Murphy dated 1762 names wife Mary, sons: Richard, Hugh, Phillip, & Dennis; daughters: Sarah Hay, Agatha Gill, Grace, Amey, Anna. Ex: wife & Wm. Hay. (what Gill did Agatha Murphy marry by 1739?  James Gill did not move here until c1748.  The Fishing Creek Gills did not arrive until 1766.   This is a Congarees record, so this has to be a male in James Gill's family, and born by 1762-21=1741.    I believe that permits only John Gill and James Gill, Jr. as possibilities for a husband, and I favor John.

1746. (Andrea #199) "In 1746, I did not check the deed & only what I got from Index: Richard Jackson, a deed of gift, in trust to Hugh Murphy of a tract of land "for my daughter" Sarah Snelling.

1751. (Andrea #200) (Deed Book 11 p297) Richard Jackson makes deed in Trust to Henry Snelling of Amelia Township 1 Oct 1751 "I Richard Jackson, Sr., of Craven County, planter, having already provided by various deeds in trust of deeds & gifts to my eldest sons & daughters, now make provision for my four youngest children & all under age 21: John Jackson, Richard Jackson, Jr., Mary Jackson, Miles Jackson my youngest; of 200 acres in Amelia Township, Berkeley County by lands of John Joyner of 483 acres in Saxe-Gotha Township of Berkeley Co., & of my acre lot in Amelia Town, I give these to John, Richard, & Mary Jackson ... 133 acres on the Congaree opposite to Saxe-Gotha, I give to Miles Jackson, my youngest. He also deeds in trust certain slaves, certain household & farming implements, etc.. TAKE NOTE (Andrea) He, i.e., Richard Jackson, Sr. provided that in case either of these four youngest children should die before the age of 21 & leave without legal bodily heirs, the land & goods made in trust to Henry Snelling should then revert to the remaining of the four youngest children (note that to revert to all remaining younger children). Witnesses: Nicholas Van Sant, Wm. Lloyd, & Johanna Crell ... before Stephen Crell, J.P. (Andrea:) "I suppose I could have found the other deeds of gift to the older children to whom he referred ... likely Mary #192 (baptized children below) as was Sarah #197, & John #194 (no I see that John #194 was not a son, nor was the Miles Jackson Joyner #195 was not a daughter." He gives a full description of the tracts of land ... I copied in next deed the description of the 133a in Richland Co. opposite Saxe-Gotha.

Six Known Children of Richard Jackson, Sr. & his wife Mary: (Ann, Sarah, John, Mary, Richard, Miles)

1. Ann Jackson married William Janeway or Ginnoway. Grace Murphy baptized 10 May 1749 (Andrea #192)sponsors Henry Snelling, Sarah Snelling, & Ann Ginnoway (Janeway) (Andrea:) "usually some of the close kin acted as God Parents or sponsors in the Episcopal Church when infants were baptized, for a boy: two men & one woman, for a girl: one man & two women."

2. Sarah Jackson b<1728 (1749-21), married Henry Snelling.

1746. Richard Jackson, Sr., in 1746 executed a deed of gift in trust to Hugh Murphy, for "my daughter Sarah Snelling" (wife of Henry Snelling).  1749. Henry & Sarah Snelling & Ann Ginnoway were sponsors for Grace, daughter of Hugh & Mary Murphy 10 May 1749 (Andrea #192).  1749/50 May 20: (Andrea rec#191) Nicholas & Naomy Fritz had two children baptized on 20 May 1749/50: Naomy Fritz b19 Mar. 1748 & sponsors were Solomon Holmes & Sarah Snelling; then baptized Elizabeth Fritz b.19 Mar. 1744 & sponsors were Henry Snelling & mother of the child.  1749. Giesendanner records in Salley's History of Orangeburgh Co.: Grace, dau. of Hugh & Mary Snelling born 10 May 1749, Sponsor: Henry Snelling, Sirah (sic) Snelling, Ann Ginnoway (Mrs. Hicks June 1986 p42 & p22). (Andrea #191) 20 May 1749/50 Nicholas & Naomy Fritz had two children baptized: Naomy Fritz b19 Mar. 1748 & sponsors were Solomon Holmes & Sarah Snelling, then baptized Elizabeth Fritz 19 Mar. 1744 & sponsors were Henry Snelling & mother of the child.

4. Mary Jackson born c1733 minor in 1751, married John Gill by 1769, along with her brother Richard Jackson, Jr., & John Handasyd sponsored the baptism of John Snelling, son of her sister, Sarah Gill Snelling & Henry Snelling (Giessendanner record 1754).  This John Gill born c1733, was a son of James Gill of Richland Co.  1754, Mary Jackson Gill, along with (her brother) Richard Jackson & John Handasyd sponsored the baptism of John Snelling, son of Henry & Sarah Snelling (Giessendanner record). Sarah Snelling was Mary Jackson's sister. This record clearly shows that the elder Richard Jackson's daughter, Mary Jackson, was already married to a Gill at this time, who would have to be born by 1754-21=c1733. John Gill bc1733 had a daughter Mary born c1758 (DAR application 638260-A654). This John "X" Gill in the Jackson records, born c1733, is documented in a land plat as another son of old James Gill whose baptismal year is recorded as 1712.  The John Gill who served with the 3rd SC regiment under Peyer im Hoff in the war may have been his son, and I have so assigned him, as it fits the records, and it fits the Mississippi oral traditions.

5. Richard Jackson, Jr., born<c1748 married Lourana. They were in Winton Dist.. 1769 through at least 1800. (signed by mark in1775).  1754.

Subject: Sarah Jackson m. Abihu Harden

Dr. Clark,

In your Jackson records on the Web, I noted that you have referred to a source that states that Sarah Jackson, dau. (?) of John Jackson (d. 1829), was the wife of an "Abraham Harden". While the old script is difficult to read, I should point out that the correct given name of her husband was Abihu Harden (d. 1842), who was a brother (or half-brother) of my great-great-grandfather, Alexander Harden (1784-1868), planter of Barnwell District, S.C. Abihu is closely linked with Alexander in his business dealings and land transactions, large and small, throughout his life, including division of a tract in 1837 among himself, Alexander Harden, Frederick J. Hay (1785-1849), Lawrence Hext, and Thomas Llewellyn Enicks (1807-1843). Abihu died before he had reached fifty. His given name comes from one of the sons of Aaron in the Old Testament. It doesn't fit in with the given names of Alexander's other brothers: Hugh, Patrick, and Robert.  Abihu's second wife's name was Catherine, but I have not come across her maiden name. Years after Abihu's death, his daughter: Caroline Harden Williams (wife of Henry C. Williams), and his grandchildren (sons and daughters of his daughter Mary Ann Harden (1824-1877), wife of Samuel H. Pressey (1820-1866)) were entangled in equity proceedings with my great-grandfather, Milton A. Harden (1825-1900) and his brothers and sisters and a niece and nephew, about a division of property that evidently went back to the father of Alexander and Abihu. Abihu and Sarah Jackson Harden also had a son, Hamilton Harden (1818-1854), who married Nancy Barker. The Hardens of this line, as well as the Presseys, have numerous descendants of other surnames living today.

On another note, through my grandmother, Josie Harley Harden (1874-1962), I descend from Henry Jackson, Jr., (d. 1763) and Henry Jackson, Sr. (d.1739) of Pon Pon, the elder Henry Jackson having been a brother of Capt. John Jackson (died c. 1723), of Jacksonboro. The daughter of Henry Jackson, Jr., and Elizabeth Davis Jackson, Elizabeth Jackson (1754-1822) married (at St. Philip's in Charles Towne) in 1768 Joseph Harley, III, (1748-1807), who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. They moved to what is now Barnwell County in the 1770's, and to this day, there are Harleys and Harley descendants in that area, and all over the world. Have you found any connections between the Jacksons of the Charleston area and the Jacksons in Barnwell District?

I enjoy your information on the Web very much, and I have found the material on Allendale County families to be extremely helpful.

Best of everything,

--Milton W. Harden
