Jackson Family Genealogy                                           Table of Contents

Many additional sources are in the source citations.

Recommended free, collaborative, wiki site for genealogists! I've already begun to add some of Robert's descendants to this site. But I won't have time to do all of it; so add whatever you know. Be aware there is a learning curve as with any new program, but the benefits of collaboration are worth it. There is a video tutorial and a watercooler section where you can ask questions. Lots of good help from volunteer administrators.  Think wikipedia for genealogists!

WOW! An interactive map of county changes over time. Save this; you may need it one day!

Genealogical & Biographical Sketches of the New Jersey Branch of the Harris Family
Published by Democrat Publishing Co., Madison, WI 1888
    Author: Mrs. Sarah J. (Harris) Keifer 
    This is a transcription of Mrs. Keifer's 1888 work by Richard G. Boyd, Mt. Morris, MI.
    Mr. Boyd has combined his more recent research with that of Mrs. Keifer and there is no way
    to differentiate between the old and the new. Never-the-less, it is a helpful confirmation with many Jackson connections.

        NOTE: There has been an index to the original book published but I have not seen it.
        The index is by Ruth J. Boyer
