The Jackson's of Alabama and the Migas' of Chicago, IL Updated August 15, 2002
About Our Family Research
On my mother's side: Henry Melville Jackson, Jr. of Montgomery, AL (born in 1896) married Gertrude Louise Kohles of Chicago, IL (born in 1915) around 1933. They had five [living] children. Henry may have had a brother named Bill who settled in the Columbus, GA area. Henry Melville Jackson, Sr. was a bishop of the Episcopalian church in Alabama. I'm looking for information on this Jackson family.
On my father's side: Anne Migas, daughter of John Migas and Mary Polack (Pollack?) who immigrated from Poland sometime after 1900 to Blue Island (and later Calumet), IL, was born in 1913 and married Daniel Hession sometime between 1946-1947. I'm looking for information on the Migas family who lived in the Chicago area. Other children of John and Mary were Florence, Anthony, Joseph, and Antoinette. After the death of John Mary married Michael Migas and had 8 more children - four of them were Leo, Stanley, Robert and John.
