I forgot to mention I'm a Jackson. I don't know if any of my ancestors drifted that far east. They were in Shelby Co., Christian Co., and a few others in cental IL. Who are your Jacksons? I'm having a horrible time finding an Ed Jackson, who m. an Ida Akens. (about 15 spellings for Akens...don't know which one I need. Even has Eakins listed a few places.) It would just be too cool if one of my "lost" Jacksons turned up over there. Think Ed was b. abt. 1854, and Ida about 1860. Thank you again!
