I saw your post about Andrew Jackson. Was his last name Strahin/Strahan? The reason I'm asking is because I found an Andrew Jackson listed in my family's history. Actually the 1880 census.Says he was born in Va. he was listed as 24yrs. he was an ore miner he was listed as other. He was living with my great grandparents Charles Marcellus Strahin and Eve Jane Grimm and their 4 children.This was for West Virginia Preston County,Lyon District
I found another listing for a Philip Jackson age 27 single living with a John Strain age 70(perhaps a mispelling?) Anyway it lists him as John's nephew.They and their parents were all born in Ireland. This was Philadelphia,Philadelphia,Pa.
