I'm looking for Ida Akins, my ggrandmother. She was m. to (Ed?) Jackson in IL in late 1870's.
The 1880 census has them listed in Shelby Co. IL, with 2 children, Thomas and George William, b. 1878 and 1880. They later had Gertrude (m. a Prescott) Bert, and John. I think at some point they moved to Macon Co., IL.
The 1880 census also says Ida's father was b. in PA, and her mother in TN.
I've been searching for any info. about Ida and Ed Jackson forever, it seems. Any help will be very welcome. Email me directly if you'd like.
