I am researching the family of Melvin Blake Jackson.He was born in May of 1864 or 1865 in Fayette County Georgia, a son of Melvin Blake Jackson and Bartila Jane Pyle.
Melvin Blake Jr, went by Melvin and his father went by Blake.Melvin B. Jackson married Mary Lou Reynolds in Floyd County Georgia on Oct 2, 1887.The family moved to Marshall County Alabama from Floyd County Georgia about 1895.Melvin B. Jackson appears in the 1900 through 1930 Marshall County census.
Melvin and Mary had the following Children:
Janie Jackson-b. June 1888/9, died Jan 21, 1953 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama married a Toney
Mae Lee Jackson-b. Dec 1890, died Nov 1, 1966 in Boaz, De Kalb County Alabama.Married a Southerlin
James M. Jackson b. May 1892, died Oct 1, 1951 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama
Annie (or Fannie) Elizabeth Jackson b. Jan 1894, died April 7, 1962 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama, married a Slaughter
Thomas Blake Jackson b. Aug 1897 died Feb 2, 1971 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama, married Ruby Burns
Joel Luke Jackson b. Feb 1899, died Aug 16, 1963 in Boaz, Marshall County, Alabama, wifes' name was Fannie Mae
Walter E. Jackson b. abt 1901
Nora Earl Jackson b. abt 1904, died March 24, 1972 in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama, married a Beasley
Grover C. Jackson b. abt. 1906
Gladys Eva Jackson b. abt 1908, died Feb 12, 1971 in Boaz, Marshall County, Alabama, married J. M. Brock
Mary Lou Jackson b. abt 1912
I got most if the information on the children from the Alabama death index.
I would love to learn the burial location of Melvin and his wife Mary and also any of their children.I would also like additional information on their children to help me fill in the gaps.I would love to hear from any descendants of this family as that would mean we are related.
