Descendants of Robert Jackson-554

Notes


129. Hannah Doughty-8586

Hannah died in 1826, ages 97 years, 8 months.


376. Rebecca Doughty-3558

A. Maitland says Rebecca was dau of William and Hannah (Doughty) Doughty. Rebecca and Benjamin had six children, but Maitland didn't give their names.

The Oct 1912 issue of The Record names the children: Isaac, Sarah, Robert H., Elizabeth, Deborah and Benjamin. It also says that "In 1812 his (Benjamin's) widow with children Robert, Elizabeth, Deborah and Benjamin unite in a deed."


John Tredwell-21801

John's birthday is also confirmed by the Bible of Richard Floyd-Jones, handed down to his gr-gr-grandson, Thomas Floyd-Jones, as found at ancestry.com.


William Thorne-21713

John Taber, in his rootsweb chart, gives different dates for birth and death: b 1 Aug 1731 and d 1805.


143. Charles Doughty-3514

A. Maitland says Charles and Sarah had six children but did not name them.

From The Record, Vol 43, Oct 1912, pg 319: "They removed from Newtown in 1778 to Westbury and in 1783 to Flushing, all Queens County, NY." This record does name the children.


384. Hannah Doughty-8581

Hannah was not married per The Record Vol 43, Oct 1912, pg 319.


164. Thomas Jackson-274

Thomas is mentioned in his father Thomas' 1759 Will as one of his father's two eldest sons. See his father's Notes for abstract of Will.

It is thought Thomas settled in Eastern Virginia. His wife, Mary Willis, was a widow of Thomas Jackson (Samuel, John, Robert).


Mary Willis-593

Per Mary Powell Bunker's book: Mary Willis married Thomas Jackson, son of Samuel, John & Robert in 1748. Their daughter, Mary, was born in 1749. Then Thomas died in 1750 and the widow Mary married a second time; to another Thomas Jackson (Thomas, James, John & Robert).


169. Samuel Jackson-996

Mentioned in his father, Thomas' Will dated 1759, to be applied to his schooling; so must have been a minor at that time.

Notes below from research of Willard S. Moore provided to Janie Kimble January, 2008:
"Samuel's father, Thomas Jackson, is found at Oyster Bay, New York, witnessing a deed on 16 April 1724; and he described himself as "Thomas Jackson of Oyster Bay" when he made his will on 6 May 1759. Samuel, therefore, was probably born at Oyster Bay, where his father resided, and probably died at Jerusalem, in the town of Hempstead, his residence at the time of his death.
"Despite their marriage in an Episcopal ceremony, Samuel and Deborah at some point adopted the Quaker faith. William Hinshaw states that Deborah was received by request into the Jericho Monthly Meeting on 18 April 1793. A list of members of the Jericho Monthly Meeting of Friends as of March, 1823, contains the names of "Samuel Jackson," age 77 and "his [unnamed] wife," age 75. . .
"Although Samuel Jackson apparently left no will, his family can be reliably reconstructed from probate records of his wife's relatives. . .
"The 1790 census lists Samuel Jackson's household as containing two white males age 16 and up (Samuel and another man, unidentified but chronologically unlikely to be the son of a 1773 marriage), two white males under age 16 (evidently Solomon and James), one white female (evidently wife Deborah) and a slave. The 1800 census lists a household without children. Thus, the census records leave no real room for children other than Solomon and James. Possibly this relatively small family for the time reflects Samuel and Deborah Jackson's Quaker faith.
"In the 1800 census Samuel Jackson is listed next to James Jackson, and in the 1810 census he is listed [next] to Solomon Jackson. These records suggest that he may have owned a second house, occupied successively by his sons. Also noteworthy is that commencing with the 1800 census, Samuel Jackson owned no slaves, though there were in 1800 and 1810 two free blacks in his household. Possibly the lack of slaves reflects a conversion to Quakerism between 1790 and 1800. After 1810, there were no blacks residing with Samuel or Solomon Jackson, but the censuses do record a number of free black households, some surnamed "Jackson", in the same vicinity, who may be former Jackson slaves or servants."

Willard S. Moore's record continues on in considerable detail, all excellently footnoted with sources. He has not published his work as of January, 2008.


170. Phebe Jackson-997

Phebe is mentioned in her father's 1759 Will. See her father's Notes for abstract of Will.


Isaac Seaman-999

Seaman, Isaac Marriage date : Jul 5, 1763 Spouse : Jackson, Phebe County of record : Province of New York Source information: Tucker, Gideon J. "Names of Persons for Whom Marriage Licenses Were Issued". 1860. Marriage Bonds, volume VII, page 257.


171. Richard Willets-1945

Richard was a step-son-in-law of Nathaniel Townsend and was an executor of Nathaniel's will, along with Nathaniel's brothers-in-laws Samuel Doughty and Benjamin Doughty.


Elizabeth Birdsall-931

From Frank M. Jackson: "Elizabeth is identified as the daughter of Thomas Birdsall in his will dated 8 Sept 1782."


176. Elizabeth Jackson-1234

Elizabeth's parents moved "to the wilderness of Morris County, New Jersey, May 31, 1722". And her father's forge was sold there at Sheriff''s Sale in 1753. So it has been assumed by some that all of John Jackson and Sarah Doty's children were born in Morris County, NJ.

In 1739 Morris County was set off from Hunterdon County, and named after the new governor. Jackson's Forge, up to this time, had been in Hunterdon County.


Joseph Shotwell III-2008

From The Edward Doty Family book, Joseph "died intestate before 29 July 1793, when letters of administration on his estate were issued to John Smith Shotwell and John Shotwell, with Isaac Freeman as surety."


John Smith Shotwell-6111

Per source doc, pg 17: John Smith Shotwell made his will Sep 13, 1800.


177. Mary Jackson-2009

William Henry Roll has that Abraham Shotwell married Mary Jackson who was born 22 Jan 1727/1728 in Union, NJ.
His source is:
Title: Essex County, New Jersey Quaker Records Quaker Records: Rahway & Plainfield Monthly Meetings Essex County, New Jersey Author: Cox, John, Jr. Publication: Ancestry.com Essex County, New Jersey Quaker Records. [database online] Provo, UT: Ancestry.com, 2001. Electronic reproduction of Cox, John, Jr., comp.Quaker Records: Rahway & Plainfield Monthly Meetings Essex County, New Jersey.

Martie Carreon, Shotwell descendant, has that Mary was b 22 Mar 1728 in Woodbridge, NJ and gives her death date as 'after 7 Aug 1775 when she is mentioned in her husband's will (East Jersey Wills L:300-" Her source is "Mayflower Families through 5 Generations, Desc of the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Mass. Dec. 1620, Vol II, Part III, Edward Doty; His desc through sons Isaac and Joseph and daughter Mary". Peter B. Hill, Compiler, Pub Gen Soc of Mayflower Desc 2000.

Mary's parents moved "to the wilderness of Morris County, New Jersey, May 31, 1722". And her father's forge was sold there at Sheriff''s Sale in 1753. So it has been assumed by some that all of John Jackson and Sarah Doty's children were born in Morris County, NJ.

In 1739 Morris County was set off from Hunterdon County, and named after the new governor. Jackson's Forge, up to this time, had been in Hunterdon County.


Abraham Shotwell-2160

Shotwell, Abraham
B: ?? , D:1801.0204, Age: Near 82
Buried at: Rahway 2/5
Last Residence: Essex County
Spouse: Mary
This is the only record of an Abraham Shotwell in these Quaker records, so I was assuming this is the right Abraham, even though the age calculated a few years off.

But now I find that the book "Mayflower Families through Five Generations" says that Abraham left a will signed 7 Aug 1775 and proved 13 Oct 1775. I have not seen this will, but have no reason to doubt it. Therefore, he died sometime between 7 Aug 1775 and 13 Oct 1775. The will names his brothers Joseph and Daniel shotwell as executors and mentions his wife Mary and children James, Susannah, Rachel, Samuel, Sarah, Mary and Rebecca.
