  • Notes 
    • The following note was given to me by Cecil Revell 11/15/07. He notes that his source was Linda Garner at Myfamily.com Jackson family page.
      Andrew Jackson Jackson, brother of ggrandfather John Kirby Jackson, was born in Montgomery Co., AL, 5 February 1845. He enlisted in the Confederate Army as substitute for John K. Jackson, untill he was old enough to serve for himself.
      He then enlisted in his own name July 1862, as a member of Hilliard's Legion.
      The forces remained at Montgomery untill the fall of that year when they were ordered to Tennessee, and sent to Knoxville, Cumberland Gap, Clinton, Kingston and Louden. The battalions were then consolidated into regiments and he was attached to the 60th. Alabama under Col. J.W. Sanford, Major Hatch Cook, Oracle's Brigade and Bushrod Johnson's Division. The command was then sent to Chickamauga where they were engaged in a desperate battle. Andrew received a slight wound in this battle. This was the only wound he received throughout the war.
      From here his command was sent to Missionary Ridge where it was attached to Longstreet's Core and forwarded on to Knoxville and Drewery's Bluff, Virginia, where they were again engaged in battle. They were then ordered to Richmond and were engaged in several skirmishes there and later moved on to the breast-works at Petersburg where they remained untill it was evacuated. They were then ordered to Appomattox Court House.
      Andrew was nine hundred miles from home when given his parole. About half of the distance had to be covered on foot as all of the railway bridges had been burned and trains could not be put through. He arrived home on May 2, and began farming.
      He was married to Sarah J. Thomas on November 22, 1866.
      He and his family went to Texas in November, 1874, locating at Hills Prairie, Bastrop Co., where they resided for two years, before going to Milam County.
      Andrew and Sarah had thirteen children, one who died while young. The other twelve all lived to raise families.
      Children: Martha Jane, Mary Alice, Rubie Magnolia, Andrew John William, Temperance Ann, James Franklin, Sarah Louisa, Mariah Ellen, Frederick Andrew, Glasper Clarence, Margaret Isabel, Laura Virginia, Jesse Lewis.
