  • A census record for 1860 seems to match Moses Andrew Jackson, but he is living in Dallas with a Witt family.  No further conneciton has been established for Moses with the Witt family.  Moses is working on the Witt farm in 1850.  His family was living in Collin County, just north of Dallas County, so they were probably neighbors.

    The Maynard genealogy is helpful to establish Moses' line of descent.  Moses' father was Shadrack or Shadrick Jackson (1800-1878) and his mother Mary Prudence Finley (1800 - 1858).  Shadrack is sometimes found as Shadrick.  In fact, his gravestone in Collin County has the name spelled Shadrick.  Shadrick was born in Wake County, North Carolina, just north of Raleigh.  Moses was born in Green County, Illinois, according to the Maynard genealogy.

    By 1860 Moses was married and living near the Red River across from Chickasaw Nation with his new wife Anna B Hyatt.  In February 2016 details were found about both their families in genealogies.

    The Maynard genealogy, reports that Moses and Anna were married in Collin County, Texas.

    Living in Moses' household is another family named Jackson that may be kin to him, though the links are not yet clear.  A Jackson is Abraham, and many of his descendants and relatives have been trying to determine which line of Jacksons Abraham came from.  We have been unable to clearly connect Abraham to other Jacksons.  In February 2016, further information was found about Moses' Jackson line and the Maynard has no Abraham.  Shadrack Jackson was born in North Carolina, while Abraham was born in Alabama.  Their lines coudl still be relatred, but the definite conneciotn has not been confirmed.

    The closest is this residence in the household of Moses Andrew Jackson.  Genealogies that have Moses' parents and other family members have no member named Abraham.  So their relationship is tenuous.  It could be they just happen to have the same last name.  There are many unrelated lines of Jacksons who wound up in areas of north Texas and Indian Territory.

    Abraham's wife is Telitha Green, who was born in Georgia, and whose father Toliver brought his family to Cooke County, Texas, before the 1860 census, when they were enumerated in or near Gainesville, a town on the Red River.  Toliver's daughter Talitha married Abraham Jackson 15 May 1860 in Cooke County.  Here a few weeks later we find them living with this Moses Jackson.  The other member of Abe and Talitha's family James has not been otherwise identified or tied to any lineage either.

    Toliver Green owned land a little north of Gainesville in the Sivells Bend area, near the Red River where it curves north then flows back south then southwest to give the Texas-Oklahoma border a jigsaw puzzle look.

    Several genealogies report that Moses Jackson's wife was Anna B Hyatt, and give her place of birth as Green County, Indiana.  One reports she was born in Bartholomew County (Columbus area).  But none give any documentation source for their information.

    The 1870 census reinforces the report of Anna's birth in indiana.  She is the head of the household, probably indicating that Moses died before the 1870 census.  Mariatal status was not reported in 1870, so we are not certain from this alone that Moses had died.

    Most of the men in the border towns of Texas were engaged in the Texas State Troops and or the Confederate Army, defending the border and the southern Indian Territory allies from attack by the North and their Native American allies and western Indian tribes.  But it woudl not appear that Moses died in the war, because their last chikld was born about 1867.
