The Hagans and the Jacksons: Destined for Greatness Updated August 22, 2001
About Our Family Research
The Hagans and Jacksons have a long history rich in tradition, if not wealth. The lineages of old, dead people can be traced back really, really far. So far, in fact, that some of the earliest family documents - hermetically sealed in the Hagan-Jackson Library in Fargo, North Dakota - were recorded on bar napkins carbon-dated from the 1700s.
While we have yet to uncover all of the monumental figures in these two prominent families we are confident that we will uncover a cast of sometimes interesting and always embarassing characters. Did you know that Fergus "Monty" Hagan started the first used car lot in Connaught before being run out of town by the Irish Better Business Bureau? Or that Eziekial "Mad Dog" Jackson was overheard saying to General George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn, "George, old chap, I think we have another win on our hands."?
Help fill in the gaps. Send me any information you have - criminal records, old IOUs, whatever you have - and check back here often for updates.
