About Burrell Jackson

Ben notes: Burrell's young life is going to be a challenge to piece together. He supposedly arrives in Decatur County, Indiana, in the company of his wife's family in 1821 (settling somewhere in Washington Township, not at their final location in Marion Township), but is somehow back in Kentucky getting married in 1822, and the couple have their first four children in Kentucky (William is claimed to be from Kentucky, and not Indiana, despite census records to the contrary). Likely, Burrell's arrival in Decatur County was without family in tow - he may have been farming on his own with the Becraft men - and he probably didn't have family in tow until 1824-1825.

"Came to the wilds of Decatur County in 1821 in company with the family of his wife's parents (Becraft) and all made a permanent settlement in Washington township. Later he bought land on section 35, township 10, range 9, and farmed until his death in 1869." Source: Jackson Family History, Greensburg Public Library, Greensburg, IN 2 3 4

Ben notes: The land that he bought was likely the same 80 acres referred to in the will of William Jackson, his son, located in the eastern half of the northeast corner of Section 35. There are presently four structures in this plot, three of which appear new, and one of which may be the original homestead, located at: 39°16'30.68"N, 85°29'42.53"W. Burrell is noted to be a baptist, and likely the entire family were baptists at this time, as there are a lot of Jacksons buried at the Union Baptist Church just up the road (a family burial plot may exist on this property, but it isn't apparent from the aerial photo on Google Earth).

•Note:

Bondsman Levi Fortune

The website has the names Russel Jackson to Margaret Becroft. Believe when the record was transcibed from the original longhand, since B and R very similar and also small r and s, that this is Burrel Jacskon and Margaret Becraft. Bio for their son John Hope Jackson states that his parents were married in Kentucky before coming to Indiana and no record of an Indiana Marriage found.

•Note:

Burrell Jackson can not be found on the 1830 census. Family records and a bio imply that they were there with Margaret's parents Benjamin Becraft. Margaret was the youngest of six children. We find Benjamin Becraft on the Decatur County, Indiana 1830 census with what is evidently their grandchildren. One young male and one young female. There are no variant Jackson surnames within pages of this record.
