My father, David Richard Jackson, was born in Canton, OH in April 1945.He passed away in San Antonio, TX in March 2000.
He was born to unwed mother Doris M. Jackson, and the only name I have for his father is Richard McCafferty.I have no other information on Mr. McCafferty other than he was married with children at the time, and therefore my father was the product of a marital affair at a time when abortion was illegal. (No judgment!)
My father was raised by his maternal grandmother, whose married name was Peggy (Margaret) Jackson, in Byesville, OH.It is my understanding that this tiny little town where my father grew up and attended Byesville High School and played on the football and basketball team no longer exists.Margaret Jackson died when my father was 15 and still in high school.
Doris M. Jackson later remarried and became Doris M. Blanchard.She went on to have two more children and later died in WV in 1994.I only met her once.
I would appreciate being given any information on my father's extended family.I am also on Facebook and Yahoo. Thank you, Stacey Jackson Pokorney Richardson, TX
