George Washington Jackson

George Washington Jackson

Classification: Query
Surnames: Jackson, Harger
Please help.... My grandpa was George Washington Jackson born 6/2/1918 unknown where, and died in Grand Saline, Texas 9/22/1968. His 1/2 brother was Sidney W Jackson born 7/2/1887 and died 12/20/1967. George met Violet Harger at a carnival in Oklahoma and married her 3 days later in 1946. Their dad swam across the Mississippi river, but no one recalls his name or his wife. I can't seem to find records on either of them and would appreciate any help I can get. Thank You

I am not related.

Sidney Jackson, never married, # 84989 15 Dec 1887 Texas - 20 Dec 1967 Parkland Hospital, Dallas, residence 1525 Sullivan St Apt 7, he was a farmer lived in Dallas 20 yrs, WWI Veteran and George Jackson was informant who said parents were not known. He died from 3rd & 4th degree burns 60% of body from fire at his residence about noon on the 19th of December and was buried at Starr Cemetery in Van Zandt County, Grand Saline Funeral Home.

Wonder why George Jackson omitted father's name on brothers death certificate ? He was Francis M Jackson born about 1858 - 1860 IL ? MO ? TN ? died in Grand Saline in 1940 and George was responsible for burying him. George's mother died before 1940 and he had other half siblings last name GUY from his mother's marriage to Frank Guy and other Jackson half siblings besides Sidney.

George Washington Jackson, married, # 74745 02 June 1918 Grand Saline Texas - 22 Sept 1968 Cozby-Germany Hospital in Grand Saline lived Pct 4, Rt 2 Box 257 Grand Saline, acute myocardial infarction (10 mins) per Mrs. Violet Jackson father was Frank Jackson mother was Prudy Davlin, WWII Vet, truck driver for City of Dallas, buried Starr Cemetery.
STARR CEMETERY is located on CR 1215 approximately 2 miles from FM 17.

Can not tell you why there are two marriage records for Prudie and F M Jackson. Most of the 1890 census burned in 1921.

Frances M Jackson age 38 born Sept 1861 Illinois married in 1886 ? father born AL mother TN
Mary L Jackson age 40 born March 1860 MS bore 5 children ALL living parents place of birth not known
Henry H Jackson age 19 born TX July 1880
Charlie H Jackson age 17 born TX Oct 1882
Sydine J Jackson age 12 born TX July 1887
Frank J Jackson age 9 born TX Feb 1891
Nora V Jackson age 5 born TX Mar 1895 no marriage record found in VZ county

If Francis M Jackson married Mary L in 1886 were Henry and Charley Jackson's or her children from a previous marriage listed as Jackson ? That would make Sidney first child of this marriage and I can not find 1910 census for the Jackson's which would tell if this was Mary Jackson's 1st marriage.

In any event I did not find F M Jackson in June 1880 census in Texas and Henry H was supossedly born in July 1880.

Unable to find Francis M Jackson family in 1910 census. "Prudie" and Frank Guy divorced maybe that has something to do with two marriage record.

"Prudie" Jackson died after 1930 census and before 08 Oct 1940. I can't find her death record.

Frank M Jackson, widower, # 48292 died in Grand Saline 08 Oct 1940 age 81 years 18 days. He had lived in Grand Saline 1 yr 10 mos, George Jackson of Grand Saline was informant and said he was born in Tennessee 20 Sept 1859 son of George Jackson of Ireland mother unknown. He was buried Starr Cemetery 09 Sept 1940. Cause of death flu.

Since Frank M Jackson is not listed in the Starr Cemetery transcription he must not have a stone or was actually buried elsewhere ? I think his middle name was probably Marion.

Frank Guy, listed as widowed, # 43827 Pct 2, Wood County reported born 15 May 1865 unknown place died age 68 years 3 mos and 8 days unattended was reported to be gun shot wound, per R. E. Guy of Edgewood, VZ Co his father was Jeff Guy of unknown place and was buried 24 Sept 1933 in Edgewood.
There is no determined date of death on certificate.

Roy E. Guy - Jewell/Jewel Boyd; son born 30 Jul 1932 VZ Co, another son 01 Jul 1933 VZ Co, another son 16 Oct 1935 VZ Co. This birth certificates give no first names.
