Comments by T. Curry Drescher:

This Savage family page shows Parker Savage and his wife Lucy had four children, Denny, Susannah, Barbery and Olive. It mentions Lucy O. Jackson in a property transaction with "Susan" Susannah Savage Britt and "Barbery" Barbara Savage Edenfield plus an unidentified Louisa Savage Feb. 24, 1824. Also another property transaction to Lucy O. Savage without the Louisa Savage, dated Dec. 30,1845. Since that page mentions the mother as "Lucy" and the daughter as "Olive" what is the connection to Lucy O. Savage Jackson? Was the mother's full name Lucy Olive Savage and the also the daughter's name as Lucy Olive Savage before the daughter married? I understand that the daughter married a William Andrew Jackson.

Some of my questions concerns the 1850 census for Barnwell S. C. where I find Lucy Jackson on pg. 441, line 4 as head of the household, age 30 (born 1820) and a Planter. She must have been a widow by then? In the household also is shown next, OLIVE JACKSON, age 80 (born 1770). Next a Rob S------------I can't make out the last name, a male age 23 and then Olive's 3 girls, (Sarah) Maria age 17, Jane (Florence) age 10 and (Olive) Rebecca age 2, In the list of girls is Jane Jackson who is my great great grandmother.

Since the head of the household is listed as Lucy, and the next line shows Olive age 80, how does this fit in the picture if Lucy Savage was the mother of Olive Savage Jackson? Is there something missing here that I do not see? Also any clue who the "Rob" S is? And, who did Olive Rebecca, age 2, grow up and marry?

I do hope someone will be able to help me with my delima. Thank you for any help.
