Descendants of Richard Jackson

Generation No. 7

19. Absalom9 Jackson (Walter8, Benjamin7, Thomas6, Anthony5, Anthony4, Richard3, Anthony I2, Richard1) was born 1760 in Virginia, and died 25 Dec 1795 in Miller's Bluff -: Point Peter Cemetery - St. Mary's, Georgia. He married Pharabea Webster 1775 in Ga.. She was born 06 Nov 1763, and died 12 Feb 1839 in Miller's Bluff - Pt. Peter, Camden Co., Georgia.

Notes for Absalom Jackson:
Absalom served in the Continental Army; married Pharebea whose parents came from Wales and had a Coat of Arms representing a weavers shuttle, they having been manufacturers. Absolum and Pharabea lived in Wilkes and Putnam Co., Ga. and at Millers Bluff (near St. Mary's) CamdenCounty, Ga. For a number of years he wasDeputy State Surveyor for Georgia. One of his surveys was that of Amelia Island. Under authority of headright warrants he had made surveys which would have rendered him the richest man in Ga. He and his family, however, did not receive much of the benefit of his highly creditable work as he had not obtained patents for the suryed land when his death occurred in the manner thus narrated: He was living in St. Mary's; on a Christmas day he gave a dinner to his friends. After dinner it was proposed that the party should take a walk. He excused himself, saying that he felt unwell, but insisted that his guests and his wife should go. A company of soldiers of the U.S. was stationed at St. Mary's. According to an account given by Mr. Jackson's servents, soon after the party left for a walk, two soldiers went to the house. The soldiers were intoxicted, and began to abuse Mr. Jackson, saying that he could give good dinners to others, but the poor soldiers who wee stationed at St. Mary's for his defense were not good enough to be invited to his house. Mr. Jackson was standing on the portico of his house, which was high above the ground. The soldiers at lenght attempted to enter the house. When Mr. Jackson resisted their effort, they seized him and threw him over the balistrade, the fall instantly killling him. Seeing what they had done the soldiers hurried to the river, escaped in a boat, and probably were never captured.
