  • Note:
    Mary Helen Haines research:
    I believe this Sarah Jackson is the same person as Sally Jackson listed as an heir and daughter of John D. Cook in his will written in May 1828 in Scott County, KY. That would make perfect sense. Sarah and Elliott have a son they named John Cook Jackson. Nancy Cook, a sister, married Mordecai A. Jackson, who we believe to be a brother of Elliott, and they all end up in the same part of Missouri as Nathaniel Cook, their brother. The will of John Cook is found in the Scott Co. Will Book G, pp. 205 and 206. It lists his heirs as his children on p. 206 as: Nathl Cook, John D. Cook, Danl P. Cook, (who must be deceased, because it lists Daniel's son John Cook infant, now of Illinois), Sally Jackson, Elizabeth Fryer, the heirs of Nancy Jackson decd and Eleanor Hancock. When Elliott Jackson died and Sarah Jackson was filing papers about his estate, she first signed herself as Sally Jackson, and then crossed Sally through and wrote Sarah. This indicates that she was commonly known by Sally. (Fannin County Court papers filed Feb. 24, 1851, transcription from Francis I. Terry's book)

    In the book, A History of the Baptist Church at the Stamping Ground, Kentucky, written by the church clerk J.W. Singer, he lists all the members of the church through the years since its founding in September 1795 at its first location on the banks of McConnell's Run. It said that the congregation came from Orange County, Va. where they were the congregation of the the Upper Spottsylvania Baptist Church. In 1781 they moved west to Kentucky and esta. their first congregation in 1785 at Great Crossing. They obtained consent to esta. the McConnell's Run Church in 1795. Among the charter members of the church were John and Jane Cook, Nathaniel and Ruth Mothershead, John and Hannah Scott. In the listing of members, for the Jackson family is listed: Jackson: Mordecai. Received Jan. 1801. Dis. May 1801; Ellitt. Bapt. Dec. 1800. Dis. Sept. 1801; Sarah. Wife of Ellitt. Bapt. Feb. 1800. Dis. Aug. 1801. This indicates their marriage took place probably in 1800, and they left this church to join the newly created church in Dry Run. Need to find the Dry Run church's records, if they exist.
