JACKSON Samuel 1779 Old 96th D SC
JACKSON Thomas 1779 Old 96th D SC

Richard Jackson, Sr. b<c1707 dc1751, wife Mary, resided Richland Co., SC. Probably from Virginia?  There are records of a Richard Jackson in Chesterfield Co., VA, but I cannot link the two.

1739. Hugh Murphy under a precept dated 13 Apr. 1739 had 150 acres surveyed near the Congarees which bounded: Capt. Thomas Brown & Richard Jackson. Therefore Richard Jackson was in SC before this date predating the arrival of James Gill. What was the relationship between Richard Jackson & Hugh Murphy? The will of Hugh Murphy dated 1762 names wife Mary, sons: Richard, Hugh, Phillip, & Dennis; daughters: Sarah Hay, Agatha Gill, Grace, Amey, Anna. Ex: wife & Wm. Hay. (what Gill did Agatha Murphy marry by 1739?  James Gill did not move here until c1748.  The Fishing Creek Gills did not arrive until 1766.   This is a Congarees record, so this has to be a male in James Gill's family, and born by 1762-21=1741.    I believe that permits only John Gill and James Gill, Jr. as possibilities for a husband, and I favor John.

1746. (Andrea #199) "In 1746, I did not check the deed & only what I got from Index: Richard Jackson, a deed of gift, in trust to Hugh Murphy of a tract of land "for my daughter" Sarah Snelling.

1751. (Andrea #200) (Deed Book 11 p297) Richard Jackson makes deed in Trust to Henry Snelling of Amelia Township 1 Oct 1751 "I Richard Jackson, Sr., of Craven County, planter, having already provided by various deeds in trust of deeds & gifts to my eldest sons & daughters, now make provision for my four youngest children & all under age 21: John Jackson, Richard Jackson, Jr., Mary Jackson, Miles Jackson my youngest; of 200 acres in Amelia Township, Berkeley County by lands of John Joyner of 483 acres in Saxe-Gotha Township of Berkeley Co., & of my acre lot in Amelia Town, I give these to John, Richard, & Mary Jackson ... 133 acres on the Congaree opposite to Saxe-Gotha, I give to Miles Jackson, my youngest. He also deeds in trust certain slaves, certain household & farming implements, etc.. TAKE NOTE (Andrea) He, i.e., Richard Jackson, Sr. provided that in case either of these four youngest children should die before the age of 21 & leave without legal bodily heirs, the land & goods made in trust to Henry Snelling should then revert to the remaining of the four youngest children (note that to revert to all remaining younger children). Witnesses: Nicholas Van Sant, Wm. Lloyd, & Johanna Crell ... before Stephen Crell, J.P. (Andrea:) "I suppose I could have found the other deeds of gift to the older children to whom he referred ... likely Mary #192 (baptized children below) as was Sarah #197, & John #194 (no I see that John #194 was not a son, nor was the Miles Jackson Joyner #195 was not a daughter." He gives a full description of the tracts of land ... I copied in next deed the description of the 133a in Richland Co. opposite Saxe-Gotha.

James hisXmark Gill, Richard Snelling, & James Murphy." John Gill & James Gill both signed by a complex mark.

(end of children of John Jackson, return to children of Richard Jackson, Sr., and Mary)

4. Mary Jackson born c1733 minor in 1751, married John Gill by 1769, along with her brother Richard Jackson, Jr., & John Handasyd sponsored the baptism of John Snelling, son of her sister, Sarah Gill Snelling & Henry Snelling (Giessendanner record 1754).  This John Gill born c1733, was a son of James Gill of Richland Co.  1754, Mary Jackson Gill, along with (her brother) Richard Jackson & John Handasyd sponsored the baptism of John Snelling, son of Henry & Sarah Snelling (Giessendanner record). Sarah Snelling was Mary Jackson's sister. This record clearly shows that the elder Richard Jackson's daughter, Mary Jackson, was already married to a Gill at this time, who would have to be born by 1754-21=c1733. John Gill bc1733 had a daughter Mary born c1758 (DAR application 638260-A654). This John "X" Gill in the Jackson records, born c1733, is documented in a land plat as another son of old James Gill whose baptismal year is recorded as 1712.  The John Gill who served with the 3rd SC regiment under Peyer im Hoff in the war may have been his son, and I have so assigned him, as it fits the records, and it fits the Mississippi oral traditions.

5. Richard Jackson, Jr., born<c1748 married Lourana. They were in Winton Dist.. 1769 through at least 1800. (signed by mark in1775).  1754. Richard Jackson sponsored baptisms of (Andrea #197) Isabell dau. of Benjamin & Dorcas Eberhardt; of James son of James & Mary Danly; of Rose dau. of James & Mary Danly.

Haighs & now in possession of Francis Goodwyn, & by lands of Gregory Hays & on the banks of the Congaree River - Said lands being the same 133a left in deed of trust to Miles Jackson, now deceased & single when deceased etc. (Andrea: "I took down all this in the deed where John Gill sold & then traced all this Jackson data & will not type in the full description here but in #202")(FOC - these are verbatum notes of Mr. Andrea) & since under the deed to Miles Jackson (see #200) in case either of the 4 children should die with no legal bodily issue the lands left in trust to either of them unto the hands of Henry Snelling trustee, the said lands should revert to the other heirs named in the deed of trust to Henry Snelling as a deed of gift to the four youngest children of the late Richard Jackson Sr. (etc.) I now deed my interest to John Gill whose relationship more fully will appear in another paper (Andrea: What is this relationship unless John Gill had wed Mary Jackson?) & this deed will make my brother John Jackson & John Gill equal owners of said land of 133 acres - Sg. Richard Jackson & Louranna Jackson - /Wit. Andrew Kersh, Th. Cramer, Mary Ann Cramer, & Thomas Gill before Thomas Young, J.P. for Winton.
