Dear Lynn,J.M.Jackson & "Eliza" (Martha Elizabeth Alford Jackson) were in fact married in Lee Co. in 1884, and in the 1880 Lee Co. census she was still enumberated with her parents.J.M. Jackson was married previously to an Ada Madison, born Ala. & had 3 children by the marriage, Clara, Luna, and Hugh when he married Martha.Both of his marriage licenses are in Lee Co., at the Giddings, Tx. courthouse.I can only presume that he was in Lee Co. in 1884, but cannot prove it.He was, however, head of household on the 1900 census by soundex, J250, vol.72,E.D. 58, sheet 12, line 64.Martha states on the same census that her father was born in Ala. and that her mother was born in S. Carolina.(James states his father was born Virgina, and mother born Ala.)I am not familiar with a Polly (or Mary) born in Ga., as Martha stated her mother was born in SC on the census.I was told by an elderly Jackson relative that Martha's parents had resided at one time in the Birmingham, Ala. area.This same relative is a fairly accurate historian as she was the only person in my entire family who knew that Martha's mother's name was Polly.Bastrop Co. 1850 census of Tx. lists a Thomas Alford, Ga., age 44, Merchant & wife, Mary, age 34, born Ala. with children: Samuel , age 19, born Ala., Baldy, age 17, born Ala., Sally, age 12, born Ala., and Martha J., age 1, born Tx.Guess Thomas and Mary were Baldy's parents?How can I get more involved in the association?Happy to hear from you and glad to provide photos, need addresses, etc.
