Notes

  • Eliza is commonly a nickname short form of Elizabeth.  All the sourceswe have found have recorded and transmitted have her name only asEliza Jane.  However, in April 2010, James Jackson, Eliza Jane'sgrandson, provided to some of us Jackson researchers as list of familybirths from his family records.  This list has Eliza's info recordedthus:
    "Eliza Bith Tate was born Oct. 4, 1873."

    This seems to support the surmise that her full name was Elizabeth.But this family record does not include her middle name.  But I notethat none of the middle names were included in any names on that list. Thus it seems to me that Eliza's proper name was Elizabeth (spelledEliza Beth here, probably indicating that the Eliza syllable waspronounced as the single name Eliza).

    In 1880, we find Eliza at age 7 with her widowed father and hersiblings, in Parker County, where her father has lived for sometime.

    1880 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 1 July, Precinct 2,District 136, page 53A, Hse/Fam #436
    Tate, Henry W M 50    Farmer MO [no birth states reported for parents]
    Tate, Martha  W F 13  Daughter At Home TX MO Illinois
    Tate, Mary  W F 11  Daughter At Home TX MO Illinois
    Tate, Isaac W M 9  Son TX MO Illinois
    Tate, Eliza W F 7  Daughter  TX MO Illinois

    In 1900, she is married to James Toliver Jackson, and they are livingin Parker County (near Weatherford).  Note that the birth informationhere indicates her father was born in Georgia as well as her mother.

    1900 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 6 June, Justice Precinct 1,District 64, page 3A, Hse/Fam #46
    Jackson, James T  Head W M  Mar 1872  TX TX GA Farm Laborer
    Jackson, Eliza J  Wife W F  Mar 1874  TX GA GA
    Jackson, Effie  Dau W F  Jan 1894  TX TX TX
    Jackson, Bessie  Dau W F  Jun 1896  TX TX TX

    There are reports that Eliza Jane Tate was Jim's second wife andLizzie Griffith his third.  I have found no information about anearlier wife.  In the 1900 census, we are told that Eliza and JamesToliver Jackson have been married 1 year.

    Wanda Cox, a Jackson coresearcher, and her cousin Teresa Tate Smithchecked the death register at the Parker County courthouse.  Theyfound a record of death of Eliza Tate Jackson.  Eliza's death recordreports she died in November 1908 of consumption.  The next line inthe register reports the death of Eliza's 8-month-old daughter, alsoof consumption (tuberculosis).  The infant daughter is not named inthe register record, but we know from family sources this was Jewel.

    Here is the Eliza's death information as Wanda transcribed it from thedeath records:
    Jackson, Eliza, race White, Nativity American, sex Female
    age 58 (error; she was 38)
    Residence Weatherford, Place of death Weatherford
    Date of death Nov 30 08, Cause of death consumption
    Physician L.P. Lanier, Weatherford
    Date of filing Dec. 17, 1908

    Information on the marriage of James Toliver Jackson to Elizabeth Tatecomes from family notes and letters from Bettie Jackson to LindaHanks.  Elizabeth Tate married James Toliver after the death of herfirst husband William D Jackson, who was James Tolliver's brother.Copies of family letters in possession of Linda (Martin) Hanks andCindy (Mixon) Beam.  Information received through Marion Butch Mixon,Cindy's brother.

    A genealogy in the One World Tree on Ancestry.com had information onthe marriage and family of James and Elizabeth:
    James Toliver Jackson
    b 5 Mar 1872, d 25 Apr 1941 Weatherford, Parker, TX
    m Eliza Jane Tate, b 4 Oct 1873, d Nov 1908, Weatherford, Parker, TX
    married 1899, Parker County, TX
    --  Ancestry.com, One World Tree (sm),http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/EditMarriage.aspx?pid=49912667&sid=149501221

    The 1900 census reports James Toliver Jackson and Eliza J Jackson withtwo children born in 1894 and 1896.  The census in 1900 reports twochildren Effie born Jan 1894 and Bessie born Jun 1896.  These childrenare the daughters of Wiliam D Jackson, Elizabeth Tate's first husband. Family sources report William's death and Elizabeth's marriage toJames in 1899.

    Eliza Jane is buried in the Curtis Cemtery in Weatherford, Texas.
