  • Notes 
    • Research notes on Sarah from Bill Jackson:
      "I have determined that Sarah McWhorter was not my William Henry's wife even though she sometimes is listed that way on the Internet. I accepted that when I first started my research, but later, because of some conflicts that developed, I traced William Henry Jackson and Sarah McWhorter through several censuses and found they were different people than my William Henry. The 1850 census lists a William H. Jackson in Hancock County, the son of James and Lena Jackson. I believe that is whom Sarah J. McWhorter married.

      "I have been able to pin down the location of my direct line, Edward-Benjamin-William Henry, to Gwinnett, Murray, Walker, Whitfield and Dade counties in north Georgia, and there's no indication they were in Hancock in south Georgia.

      "The 1860 census in Walker County, GA, lists William Henry, who I identify as the son of Benjamin, with a Sarah born in Tennessee. That Sarah's headstone in Hight Cemetery in Franklin County, Arkansas, gives her birth date as 13 Feb 1833."

      Then a later email from Bill:
      "I recently asked for and received the Arkansas death certificate for my grandfather, John Henry Jackson (1867-1947). His parent are listed as William Henry Jackson and Sarah Colter. After considerable research, I am satisfied Sarah was the Sarah Coulter (slightly different spelling from the death certificate) listed in the 1850 census in Walker County, Georgia, living near the Jacksons. She was the daughter of Charles Coulter (1811-1866) and Isabella Tipton (1814-1860). I have no definitive proof this is my Sarah, but all the facts fit. One thing is certain now, though -- William Henry Jackson's wife's name was Sarah Colter, however it was spelled."
