About Mary Hanks

Ben M. Angel notes:

Recently found the Burrell Jackson family photo from c.1842. The image poses a problem. John H. Jackson is fairly well-established as being born 1841 (thus the date of the photo being around 1842). If that is the correct date, then Mary should be around 8+. She appears to be about 3-4 years old. However, all references to her have her being born 11 December 1833, with no suggestion of an 1838-9 birth date. She married at age 22, so shifting her age 5-6 years on her records would not have given her any advantage in getting a marriage permit. Hard to tell what's going on there.
