My 2nd ggrandfather, the Rev. Jesse Jackson GRANTHAM, was not Indian nor was his spouse Sarah aka Sally LANE.In the 1870 Federal Census he is listed as a Preacher. In the 1880 Federal Census he is listed as a Minister. In both census records he, his spouse and children are all listed as white. Their son, my great grandfather Jesse Lee, death certificate lists him as white as does the certificates of his siblings I have in my posession. Additionally he was listed as a former pastor of the Bethel Baptist Church in Decatur Co., GA. He along with 6 others formed the Friendship Baptist Church as original members in May 1843 in Pulaski Co., GA.
From the following book: HISTORY OF SAN BERNARDINO AND RIVERSIDE COUNTIES 1922 VOL. 111 by JOHN BROWN JR. AND JAMES BOYD THE WESTERN HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION "The birth of Jesse Lee Granttham occurred in Jackson County, Florida, September 2, 1873.He is the son of Jesse Jackson and Sally (Lane) Granttham, the former, now deceased, being a native of Georgia.He was a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church, and came of an old American family, which was founded in the American Colonies by ancestors who came here from England. Representatives of the family fought in the American Revolution with distinction and courage, and others through the succeeding years have been equally steadfast as men of peace.Mrs. Granttham, also now deceased, belonged to the old Southern family of Lanes, of English descent, and she, too, was born in Georgia."
