About Vashti Jackson

From Jane Jackson Kimble and Jack McAnally's page on Vashti Grinnan:

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=virginiajackson&id=I312

ID: I312

Name: Vashti Grinnan

Surname: Grinnan

Given Name: Vashti

Sex: F

Birth: ABT 1763 in Fauquier Co., Virginia 1

Death: 28 Sep 1846 in Morgan Co., Illinois 2 1

_UID: C7ADE32C8510A5458CF593FEFD5DC3DC0DEC

Note: The date of Samuel and Vashti's marriage (and location) is taken from Samuel's pension application "Soldier married in the spring of 1782 in Culpeper County, Virginia, Vashti, who died September 28, 1846 in Morgan County, Illinois, aged 83 years." This calculates her birth year to be abt 1763 and her marriage to be at age 19 which sounds logical.

A post-em left on a rootsweb chart by Sadie Sparks: "Samuel Jackson m Vashti Grinnan (Greening) Aug 11, 1771 Fauquier Co., Virginia. She was the daughter of Thomas Greening and Mary (Duncan) Hackley, widow, who was daughter of Robert Duncan who left will in Culpeper Co., Virginia."

So there is a possibility that this is the same Samuel and Vashti, but Vashti, if married in 1771 would be only 8 when she married (or age 14 if married in 1777) and this is a different county than the county mentioned in his pension application. The pension application said Samuel was married 1782 in Culpeper Co, VA.

I emailed Sadie Sparks and she said the 1771 date was a typo on her part, that the correct info was from Fauquier Co. Virginia database:

Irinon, Vashti Jackson, Samuel 11 Aug 1777 Virginia

Fauquier County

Then she said Irinon was a misreading or misspelling of Grinnan which was an early name, since changed to Greening. The name is also seen as Grennan and Grinnen.

This later date of marriage of 1782 is also found in DAR application #689407 with no location or other information. This was probably taken from the pension application.

Bob Mitchell's comment: "There is obviously something wrong here. Could be her stated age at death, could be a typo on the record, could be the recollection of whomever stated the marriage was in the spring of 1782. I doubt that this is a record of another Samuel Jackson marrying another Vashti. What would the odds of that be? I have never seen the name Vashti before we found this one:-) I guess someone would need to go to Fauquier Co and look at the orginal record to get the true answer."

Father: Thomas Grinnan

Mother: Mary Duncan b: ABT 1735 in Virginia

Marriage 1 Samuel Jackson Jr. b: 1756 in Prince William Co., Virginia

Married: 1782 in Culpeper Co., Virginia (see note) 1 2

Note: Post-em left on a rootsweb chart by Sadie Sparks:

"Fauquier Co, Va-Marriages Elizabeth Grinnan (Greening) (M) George Davis Dec. 17, 1770 Sec: Samuel Jackson Vashti Grinnan (Greening) (M) Samuel Jackson, Aug 11, 1777-Wit: George Davis-This couple moved to KY, where all their children were born, Samuel died in Morgan Co, Ill 1844 and Vashti died in 1846 Morgan Co, Illinois. She was the daughter of Thomas Greening and Mary (Duncan) Hackley, widow, who was daughter of Robert Duncan who left will in Culpeper Co., Virginia."

This Aug 11, 1777 was the date of the bond, not the actual ceremony according to Fauquier Early Marriages posted here: http://usgwarchives.net/va/fauquier.htm And ALT date of marriage (and location) is taken from Samuel's pension application "Soldier married in the spring of 1782 in Culpeper County, Virginia, Vashti, who died September 28, 1846 in Morgan County, Illinois, aged eighty-three years."

This calculates her marriage to be at age 19 which sounds more logical. But no online record has been found for this date or location. I'm told that a marriage at age 14 wasn't that unusual during that time period.

This later date of marriage of 1782 is found in DAR application #689407 with no location or other information.
