You probably know that there are hundreds of John Jacksons in 1880. Using your phrase "where they lived in Georgia", I looked at all the John Jacksons in Georgia, but none had the right son or wife. I also skimmed through the Texas CD and Alabama CD. Using the national index, I decided that Amaline might be the best name to search for. The national index does not match husbands, wives and children. There are 153 Amaline, Emmalines, etc., but only a few born in GA. I looked at these. JACKSON, Emiline Self <1826> F W (born)GA placeGA JACKSON, Emeline Wife <1830> F B GA AL JACKSON, Emeline Aunt <1830> F B GA GA JACKSON, Emeline Wife <1831> F B GA GA JACKSON, Emeline Wife <1845> F B GA GA JACKSON, Emmeline Wife <1858> F B GA GA None had the right husband or son. I thought I might try Emma, too, but there are 118 Emmas born in GA. I noticed only one Emmaline spelled with an A, so I looked her up, just in case. Wrong husband. JACKSON, Amelin Wife <1830> F W AL AL Thinking Amaline might be a family name, I looked for Amaline Roberts--none, but lots of Emelines. I picked out all the John A. Jacksons. JACKSON, John A. C. Self<1840> M W AL AR JACKSON, John A. Self <1845> M W AL AL JACKSON, John A. Other <1850> M W AL TX JACKSON, John A. Self <1856> M B AL MS JACKSON, John A. Son <1868> M W AL AL JACKSON, John A. Son <1872> M B ALAL JACKSON, John A. Son <1872> M W AL AL JACKSON, John A. Son <1873> M W AL AL None had the right family. I'm stuck.
