My wife's family comes from John T. Jackson (below), through his son Joseph Abner. I have just started researching her family but do have most, if not all Joseph's children and their spouses. Joseph died 20 Sept. 1921 near Bowie, Montague County, Texas & Josephine Garrard Jackson died there 8 August 1929. They are buried in Bushy Creek Cemetery 3 miles southeast of Bowie. I am planning a trip there to see if headstones exist and will advise.
Please advise if you wish to have their children's data.
