Viola's father (Jackson) was very dark (Geechie) from one of the islands off the coast of SC...Viola's mother was possibly Cherokee...Viola married Simon Devine Cook (TN) and moved to IL.. Unfortunately, Viola tried to jump out of a moving car when my father was 3mos. old and was put into a mental institute for schizophrenia around 1927. Any connection is appreciated. 21 May 2001 (link above to the Gypsy web site) K. Cook-Clarke

JACKSON

Mr. John A. Jackson born in Richland County South Carolina on 23 August 1837.  John eventually moved to Florida in the early 1850s but I suspect he is  related in some way to the Jackson family you listed under "early settlers". I just don't know who his parents or any siblings are since I'm told they  didn't keep official birth records during the 1830s when he was born.  30 Sept. 2001 Bob Jackson

JACOBS I am searching for my grandfather's lineage and his name is Charles Emilio Jacobs. He was born approximately around 1908-09 in Columbia, South Carolina (Richland County). He would have been considered "colored" and also has a strong Cherokee influence in the bloodline. I have done some research on this website and found some slave names that were property of Robert Adams and Richard Singleton plantation owners. I am not sure if the following names are descendants however if anyone has information on these people or the plantation owner that would help:  Andrew Jacobs born 1830, John Jacobs born 1825 (Live Oak Plantation), Moses Jacobs born 1825, Norah Jacobs born 1810, Hampton Jacobs born 1827, Bina Jacobs born 1849, and David Jacobs born 1853 (Richard Singleton).  In addition, I have been unsuccessful in finding records and any relations to this line of Jacobs. I have read on this website that there seems to be many large family's with the Jacobs name who may be caucasian. Is it possible that some of these families may have had slaves that have taken the slave owners name? or a Cherokee lineage that someone may know about in Richland County.  I don't have much information since our family didn't keep records and I haven't had the opportunity to meet my grandfather. Any help would be greatly appreciated..  1999 - 20 June 2005 Charles Emilio Jacobs III
