She was the mother of Mary Payne Jackson (born c. 1781 died 02-13-1808). She was the mother of First Lady Dorothy "Dolly" Madison, the wife of President James Madison. While visiting her daughter and son-in-law John G. Jackson in Clarksburg (then Virginia) in October of 1807, she suffered a "violent stroke of the dead palsy" and died a week later. West Virginia Highway Historical Marker number MC-103's inscription reads: "In this cemetery lie buried members of the Stonewall Jackson family: his father Jonathan, a sister Elizabeth, his great grandparents John Jackson and wife Elizabeth Cummings. Buried here also are Mrs. Mary Payne Jackson and Mrs. Mary Coles Payne, sister and mother of Dorothy (Dolly) Madison, wife of President James Madison. Some Civil War soldiers lie buried in this place; called Jackson Park." Historic Jackson Cemetery is located on WV 20 (East Pike Street), near junction with US 50, Clarksburg.
