I don't have any black DNA. But I do have .02% native American. I know, on line, a woman who is working on the Jackson line. She was doing research in UT and met a black man who was looking at the same research she was. It turned out that his great grandfather owned a plantation in Coosda, AL. The grandfather's name was Absalom Jackson. He had a number of children by his wife. However, he did have a son by one of his slaves. When the son reached the age of 21 Absolon emancipated him, gave him land, a team of horse, and some money. I'm writing this from memory. When I was certain that Absolon was not in my direct line I remove that line. As near as I can tell Absalom and my line are distant cousins. I suspect the line branched shortly after Sir Richard Jackson and Ursula Hildyard. Going back to the native American DNA I have never found a connection that indicates who that might be. The plantation still exists and serves a venue for weddings and other events.

Who is Jackson / Hightower group? What does it mean? Help Please!

Jimmy I emailed the administrator a few weeks ago and he told that some where down the line is a Jackson married a Hightower. I have no Hightower in my tree. My Ancestor that I can only go back to my Great Great grandfathers side and that 1825. So you may be right about the legitimacy of this group. Now after doing the YDNA 111 there is no one else in my group now except for my 2 great grandfather. I was hoping to get more answers about that side of my family. I’m at a stand still.

I am totally lost I don’t know where to look or begin. I was really hoping to get some answers but I didn’t get anything out of it but more confusion. Do you have any ideas where I should start? I have no Hightower in my tree.

My ancestor is Daniel Jackson (kit 266453) born November 1782 in northern Georgia. County could be Morgan but counties were divided after his birth. The courthouse burned leaving a dead end. I have anecdotal information that he had brothers named Reuben, Rowland, John and Peter. Anyone’s family tree have a connection? Daryl Jackson

Hi my name is Kathy MacDonald. I had a cousin do a y-dna 111 for our Jackson side of our family. Jesse Freeman Jackson is my 2 times great grandfather. The cousin that tested for me is the son of my Great Great Grandfathers son. His kit number is 325525. Which put him in Jackson/ Hightower what does that mean. My 2 times great grandfather was born in Georgia and in several census it shows his father was born in Virginia mother in Georgia. I find my 2 times great grandfather in Fayette county Alabama census in 1850. I can’t seem to find any parents or siblings for my 2 times great grandfather. Any help or information I would greatly appreciate. Thank you

Hi all I've been busy and haven't been a round in along time. I have two question that have come up. What is the most distant Jackson or relative have you been able to identified? I've been working on Jackson line in Ancestry for years and what I've found I don't believe so I'm wondering what is possible. Second my DNA shows .02 Native American. I know Richard Jackson immigrate form Ireland to America around 1755--without going back and looking it up. Does any know where that came from? I noticed someone on here posted they had a tiny NA DNA.

Update to my post from a few months back. Still searching for T (aka Tom) A (Aaron/Andrew?) Jackson, all we have is his initial) Jackson who signed a marriage license in Webster Co MS in 1885, and died somewhere in east central MS in 1891-1892. Other than his offspring (my g-grandfather and his slightly older sister) he's pretty much a ghost. My yDNA came back I-M223, so definitely a Jackson. Two Generation 0 hits and two Generation 2 hits that suggests he's part of the line that runs through John Warren Jackson in GA and, presumably, through his line up into NC. Other than that I'm still drawing blanks. The Thomas Aarons I find in the line in GA are too old and don't appear to have made the move to MS. There aren't any T A Jacksons in any of the genealogies I've found to date that would fit the facts. My working theory is that TA Jackson may have been a cousin or nephew that came into MS after the 1880 census and before the 1885 marriage bond out of AL, TN, or even GA. I appreciate the folks on this board who have reached out because we matched. They've helped plug some gaps, but they don't show him either, which leads me to think he might be descended from one of John Warren's brothers. Anyone else in the lines out there that are aware of a TA Jackson they could help me place in East Central MS (Webster/Oktibbeha/Kemper/ Neshoba, etc) in the 1880s? Or a TA Jackson in one of those other states that drops off their radar about that time? I should add...given the few facts, I have no preconceived notions as to his age: he might have been born in the 1865-68 range to match his bride, and died young in 1891-92. But he could also have been a widowed war vet whose offspring were already on their own who married a young bride, sired two children and died. Don't really know and don't have family lore to support either) Thank you!!!

I'd also appreciate any suggestions as to where to go from here in my search for info? what other data is out there? would more detail than the yDNA-37 make a difference?

Charles, more data than the y37 may make more of a difference. It will depend entirely on whether other male descendants of your male line have tested.
