    If William was 11 months old in April, 1910, he would have been bornbetween 15 April and 15 May 1909.

    On the back of a picture postcard, Andrew 24 April 1923, WilliamAndrew signs himself as Andrew Jackson.  He states there that he hadhad his 14th birthday on 24 April 1923.  This would mean he was bornon 24 April 1909:
    "I will send you this card we had taken of us at Whits Park(California).  Andrew Jackson.  I was 12 years old.  I am now 14. Willsend better picture later.  Birthday 24 April 1923."

    This matches his age of 11 months in 1910, since the census date wasin April 1910.

    Notes:
    Mabel's last name is Jackson
    We know her maiden name was Gray, and her father's surname here isGray
    Estelle Mae Jackson, in her marriage license, lists both of these asher parents; she was born in 1931.
    This looks like a second marriage for these same two, a remarriageafter a divorce
    No prior marriage for either one has been found (as of 7 September2014)
    --------------------------

    "By all indications and spouse showing on death cert he was married 3times. 2nd marriage was to Mable Lillian Gray in 1945 (see my tree andcomments for both Mable and Thelma [Barcley], on death cert. forWilliam."
    --  Marion Mixon, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 7 September 2014

    When I explored further, I discovered that William and Lillian hadpreviously been married, to each other.  They divorced then remarriedin 1945.  In the meantime, Lillian also remarried and divorced.  Inthe 1930 census she is reported as a head of household with the twoJackson children in the home.  Her last name is now Hoskin (notHoskins), and she is reported as Divorced.  The youngest child,William A Jr, is 5.

    William A Jackson Jr was born on 15 February 1935.  This means theydivorced about 1935 or 1936, she married a Hoskins and then divorcedhim too before the 1940 census.  They remarried in 1945, as reportedin the above marriage license.  They also later divorced, andLillian's final surname was Owen.  We have not found the firstmarriage record or either of the divorce records.  William marriedThelma Leona Barclay, and was married to her at the time of his deathin 1969.  We have not found this marriage record.

    William and his next wife Mabel were married in January 1945, asindicated in their marriage record above.  They were reported in theRiverside City Directory for 1945.  Andrew is reported in the UN Navy. It appears to be his father Samuel who is also listed as living  in alocal hotel, and working as a machine operator, not further defined.

    By the 1949 City Directory, William is married to Thelma LeonaBarclay.  That year the City Directory had a listing for William andThelma, as well as for William's father Sam.

    I did not find information on William's wife, except that his wife ismentioned in his death certificate.  Her name there is spelled ThelmaBarcley.  Probabaly the last name was spelled Barclay, the normalspelling for that name.
