The 1850 census gives the ch. of Martin & Tabitha Friley as: Wm 12 Louisa 10 Jno L 6 Joseph 3 Venitic 1
I don't have the will of Martin who d. 1871 but have one acct of it where he leaves assets to son James F (I wonder if this is same as Jno L), son in law Joab O. Mobley and dau Rebecca Friley.Seems Rebecca was unmrried and could have been a minor.i don't know when Tabitha died.
As to the Frileys saying the jacksons were beneath them, that is interesting, tho negative to me. This happened a lot and does to-day. I don't know the social caste of either family in Yazoo Co.,Ms.Do know the Jacksons were well known and seemed to be prosperous in Amelia and Mecklenburg Cos, Va.In Yazoo Co, most owned about the average of property as other farmers.
My ancestor, I believe Tabitha's bro. did borrow a lot of money and sometimes was sued for debts, so the early public records say. Tho he seemed to be backed up by some high hob-nobbing neighbors. Many early settlers borrowed money at the beginning of a yr. and paid it back after crops were gathered.
Joab O'Neal, a son of Jas & Nancy Mobley O"neal, a well known and well off early family was sec. for the marriage of Cavil Jackson to his 2nd wife, Frances Johnston/Johnson in 1862. Joab was also wit. to the will and was in other areas of the est. settlement of Francis Jackson (father of Tabitha) who d. 1836. Wm Burrows Johnston (don't know if Cavil's Johnston wife was related to him) was sec. for Cavil to borrow money in 1866.W B Johnston was the ancestor of our present Gov. Haley Barbour and he was descendent of an early Territorial Gov. Wm Leake.
Let me know what records, if any, you have on any of the Jackson families.I will share whatever I have that you would want.
