Conflicting Data From Secondary Sources
Old documents passed around, like the old game of whisper, will invariably conflict with other old remembrances.
Even obituaries are not always written by close family members and can contain errors.
But we go with what we have and make corrections as new and perhaps more logical evidence is found. The conflict of 'Sarah Abigail' Jackson's two husbands: John Flesher and Jonathan Hughes The mystery of
Hannah Bennett's Parents. Who were they really? The mystery of Betsy Jackson Young's Parents.
Were they really David Jackson and Prudence Hathaway? Studies of North and South Carolina Jacksons:
Problematic or conflicting areas are discussed on the following pages:
Was Robert Jackson's wife Agnes really a Washburn? This article says 'No'.
The suggestion that John Jackson had two wives: Elizabeth Hallet and Elizabeth Seaman is disproved.
Well recognized sources say both Charles Doughty and Isaac Doty married Elizabeth Jackson, daughter of Col. John Jackson. Which Elizabeth was daughter of Colonel John? This conflict has been resolved!
William Mott b 1709 married which Elizabeth; Elizabeth Allen or Elizabeth Valentine? The database has been changed to say Elizabeth Allen.

A Study of the William Jacksons found in Wilkes County, NC 1786-1810 This compares all the references found for various Williams to traces them back to historical records. Though several Williams are mentioned, only three are established by documents and only one is confirmed to be the son of Gen. Joseph Jackson of Morris Co., New Jersey and the father of Abigail Jackson Hughes and Rebecca Jackson Fairchild.

Examining the Burial Site of Col. Stephen Jackson Chesterfield Co., South Carolina
[NOTE: Col. Stephen Jackson is not a descendant of Robert Jackson of Hempstead. This non-relatedness is verified by DNA testing at FTDNA of descendants from both Robert of Hempstead and Stephen of Chesterfield, South Carolina. There was no match. According to records currently found in the Burch Family Book, Col. Stephen's father was Henry Andrew Jackson and grandfather was Capt. Stephen Jackson. Because both Jackson lines were found in the same area about the same time, data is included in this Jackson database about both lines to eliminate confusion.]
Other conflicting data can be discussed here later. Please let me know of any that you are concerned about.
