This may help you in your search,My grandfather's name was Marvin Jerome Jackson of Lake Providence,Louisiana, His son; my father was Marvin Jesse Jackson also from Lake Provience, Marvin Sr. had a first cousin named Eddie Perkins from Lake Provience. The three of these men located to Detroit,Michigan in the early 30s. There should only be 50 to 60 miles difference in travel from Tensas to Lake Provience. We could very well be family. Best of luck to you. I too am searching the Jackson/Perkins family lineage.We can help one another!!!.
