    Notes 
    • Bondsman: William Jackson. William is related as proved by DNA, but is not a father of James. It is conjectured that James in William's nephew and son of John.

      Jean Gilmore's book says the marriage bond was dated 21 Dec 1779 Wilkes County and the marriage took place 3 Feb 1779/80. This sounds like Quaker dating to me, Janie. But there is no evidence other than that. [1]

  • Notes 
    • Tombstone transcription at Find-a-Grave has birth date of 27 Jan 1786.
      I've been told that Jean Gilmore's book 'Fairchilds in American' has a d/o/b 22 Dec 1788.
      The little (1899) book "The Jackson Family by Mahala Jackson & H. Glenn Jackson has Ebenezer's d/o/b as 22 Jan 1786. Take your pick.

      Ebenezer married Nancy Chambers in Jessamine Co., Kentucky 6 Jul 1807

      In 1809 his son James Chambers was born in Marshall Co., KY

      Added by JMcAnally5258 on 1 Jul 2008
      1810 census for both brothers James and Ebenezer Jackson
      Ebenezer has one male James the older brothe has three males This is just a conjecture at this time but Jessemine Co. KY abuts Woodford Co., KY and with both of them together it would appear to have considerable worth.

      Added by JMcAnally5258 on 1 Jul 2008
      1820 census
      We now find three brother together in Wayne Co., Indiana: Daniel, James and Ebenezer Jackson.

      From Janeen Proctor: 1820 Wayne Co., Indiana, brothers Daniel and James next door.
      Land Record: 10 Apr 1824 Montgomery Co., Indiana, Document #1518, 160 acres

      Ebenezer died in 1825 before he could enjoy his new land. His daughter Evaline died the day after he did, so it can be imagined that an illness took them both. Nancy didn't die until 1859. I wonder if she remarried?

      His daughter, Nancy's obit gives us the information as to when Ebenezer and Nancy arrived in Montgomery County:
      Nancy Winsor Jackson was born in Wayne Co., IN. Oct. 23, 1822 . . . She came with her parents to Montgomery County, IN. when only 3 years old . . . This may be correct. The above land records indicate when the land was bought, but that could have ocurred before Ebenezer actually brought the family. -- But the 1824/1825 time period would be about right.

      Added Mar 2010 from the 1899 book "The Jackson Family" by Mahala Jackson and H. Glenn Jackson, pg 4:
      "In 1810 the family moved to Wayne county, Indiana Territory. One year after his arrival he was drafted to serve six months in the State militia. He was sent to the lakes of Ohio to protect against the British and Indians during the war of 1812. In 1823 he entered one hundred and sixty acres and improved it. This farm was located in Montgomery county, near Cedar Bluff, four miles west of Crawfordsville. Arrive at his new home November 14th, he lived in a camp two weeks while they were constructing their rude log cabin. Ebenezer was an honest, upright man, a true and devoted man to his religion--a member of the Old School Baptist church. He was the father of eight children: James Chambers, Enock, Evaline, Athel, Arrena, Harrison, Nancy and Lucinda."
