Andrew Jackson
Lumbee American Indians


Born: ~1769 Bucks or Lancaster County, PA
Died: mid 1850s

Andrew Jackson's parents were William Jackson and Margaret Wilson. Andrew is the oldest brother of Naomi Jackson Oxendine - Naomi is in my direct line. The siblings in this group are:

Mary Jackson (born ~1755)
Andrew Jackson (born ~1769)
William Jackson (born 1774, married Elizabeth Oxendine)
John Jackson (born ~1778) Guilford County, NC
Naomi Jackson (born ~1784 Guilford County, NC; married David Oxendine)


I got a TON of information about this Jackson tree from Evyonne Eddins - evonandrews*AT*sbcglobal.net who graciously allowed me to put it online. Evyonne's research is simply amazing!!! N

Evyonne's Update: Wm. Zoph married his 1st cousin (heir fathers were brothers) - Louisa was part Cherokee (not Lumbee) through her mother, Nancy Bridges, a Cherokee, of the Kayshire clan of the North Central area of North Carolina (the original area prior to boundary changes bordered VA). We know that our Jackson lineage is 75% Indo European & 25% Native American - however, the exact tribal affiliation of the Jackson surname&! nbsp;has not been determined. You will note that within the Cherokee Application, the reference to Louisa's mother was : Nancy,a Kaysire Cherokee. Wm. Zoph and all of his brothers filed for Cherokee ribal admittance - all were rejected due to their claim of kinship had not previously regisered within the Cherokee nation. These applications (File numbers given within the information sent) can be obtained from the Federal Archives (Indian Records are located within the Fort Worth, Texas archival branch) I do not deviate from primary documents unless proven differently from primary documentation.

NOTE: Nancy says about (16) - 3) The 16th child of Andrew & Nancy Jackson - is in error - Those Bible Records are difficult to analyze. I have recently found out that "Lizabeth Duff "Dicy" Jackson may well be two separae females directly of the Woolbright lineage raher than the Andrew Jackson's line. I have not had time to correct same. I would appreciate it if you could delete that specific entry.

Lisa says - I hate to delete information until we're sure, but I've added the note!




(17) ???Joel Jackson c 1840: 1880
census Hardeman Co. Dist 15 pg. 181 shown within - HH Louis 35 (1845) TN farmer; Jane TN; Lou 13 female TN; John 10; Walter 2 TN; Jonathan Jackson 80 “father” state ?; Mary Elizabeth 70 mother state ?; Joel 40 “uncle state ?; Mary 20 “aunt” state?; Ida 2 “niece”; Andy 20 “cousin; Spivy (?) 25 male “cousin”.




In a move which I consider to be very unfair. Andrew's father gives the whole estate to HIM even though there is an older daughter, Mary. Mary only gets 10 shillings - and this is actually given to her husband. All Andrew has to do is take care of his mom.

From Evyonne: Regarding William Jackson's Will of 1792: It is not unusual for only one or two to be specifically mentioned within Wills during this time period. Most families provided generously to their children upon their marriage when they left their birth place. Andrew and his brother-in-law were specifically mentioned (Joseph Sumers received a little), both were still there at the time of William's death with Andrew left to care for his mother. Nothing unusual about the contents of the Will - have come across that many, many times.

1st I, Give and bequeath all my real and Personal Estate of lands, horses, chattle’s and hog’s and all other movables and things to my Son Andrew. To him his heirs and assigns forever But my will is that after my decease if She lives, that is to Say my dear Wife, Margaret shall be helped and maintained as long as She lived by my said son Andrew and She to live with him and the charges of her and my funeral Both to be discharged by my son Andrew above mentioned.

2nd I give and Bequeath to my Son in law Joseph Summers the sum of Ten Shillings to be paid out of my estate by my son Andrew.
