    In 1860, Jacksobena's name is reported as Jackoline, very clearlywritten in clear flowing script.  Because of the presence of SusanDyse in the household, I tend to think that Susan is Jacksobena'smother.  But I can find nothing on anyone with this surname, or withsimilar names like Dyess that would match these individuals.  Onegenealogy suggests the family name was Dyer, and has the names of herparents.  But there is no documentaiton.  The name Dyer woudl makesense as an analysis of the handwriting of the Susan's last name inthe census, which could be Dyre.

    This genealogy has Jacksobena's first name as Jaqueline, which wouldmake sense, and acount for the strange 1860 form of Jackoline.  Butboth these are quite different from the clear entry of the strangeform Jacksobena in two censuses.  It seems unlikley the latter couldhave been accidentally written so carefully two different times 20years apart.

    I don't know who these children of the second surname Brinkley are.In 1870 C W Belknap's wife is again named Jacksobena and she is 45,matching the age of 35 for Jackoline in 1860 and 25 for Jacksobena in1850.
