James Jackson born abt 1760 South Carolina married Ann in South Carolina

James Jackson that indicated in 1804 that he was from Barnwell County.  His first child, Sarah was born 1789 and his second daughter, Elizabeth was born 1800. In 1804 they went by wagon to Louisiana. The 1800 daughter Elizabeth died in 1887 and the verbal family hustory is, she remembered making that trip. My ancestor is the first daughter, Sarah, born 1789.

Rev. War record: He served as a Lieutenant in the South Carolina Militia during 1781, 1782. and 1783 under Capt. Joseph Calhoun. He also served as a lieutenant under Col. Grassett. Rev. War record says he was from Barnwell County South Carolina.
