~3rd Great G'father~

Parentage: William (b. 1784, Suffolk, England) and Mary Scott (b.1786, Norfolk, England) m. 9 Nov 1806 in Gt Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. I've found record of (there may be more) 3 sons (William Thomas, Robert, and John), and 2 daughters (Caroline and Elizabeth). William and Mary Scott Jackman moved to America between 1806 and 1810, w/their eldest, William Thomas and wife, Leah, moving first to Missouri (birth of 1st & 2nd child), then to Ky (birth of 3rd child), finally to Barren Co (births of remainder of their 11 children.

William T Jackman donated the land on which Mount Tabor Church (Barren County's oldest Church) was built. The Old Mt Tabor Cemetery is located about 100 yards northeast of his family cemetery.

Married Leah Elizabeth Steffey (b.Va) on 12 Feb 1834 in Barren County, Ky. Leah and William had 11 children: 2 boys and 9 girls. Each of the girls were given a farm by their father. For years, William had a tan yard, providing leather used for making many shoes for the surrounding area before they were manufactured and became "store bought".
