Hi I'm Robert Jackson The Robert Jackson you refer to is Capt. Robert Barry Jackson, he would be my great, great grandfather. I've also been trying to trace back to his parentage. I've found that his father was William Jackson married to Lucy Layton. Robert had 10 siblings. William it appears is a son of Isaac Jackson who arrived in Halifax with his family in 1774 from Yorkshire England. His parents were Robert and Ann. He had a brother Stephen. Both he (Isaac) and his brother (Stephen) were bound as apprentices with William and Caleb Putnam (ship builders Maitland NS) due to the poor financial situation of the family. Hope this might be of some help and I would look forward to comparing notes since it appears we are both researching the same branch of the tree.
