Birth: 1835

Georgia, USA
Death: 1917
Santa Margarita
San Luis Obispo County
California, USA

Father: William Marion Jackson
Mother: Nancy Elizabeth Owenby Stanley

Wife: Mary Minerva Goforth(m. Nov. 9, 1855 in Blairsville, Georgia)

Children: Dicie female, Milton Bert Male. and their last child Minnie Matilda was born 8/7/1879 in California

Their daughter Dice is buried next to them. Her married name is Bakem.

Andrews father was an early settler of Union Co., Ga., His father I believe is the brother of My GG grandfather Brinkley Jackson.

Andrew was in the Confederate Army (not by choice) and didn't like it, so he deserted, he was found and jailed in Birmingham Alabama. With the aid of his prison mates and his wife Minerva he escaped. They returned to Choestoe in Union Co Ga. Sometime after the war was over he decided to move his family west over the Mississippi River to Kansas and on to the San Louis Obispo Valley in California, called the Creasy Plains...It was a difficult Journey and two of their children died and were buried on the plains. Andrew didn't like to talk about the Civil War. He liked to live far away from neighbors, when they got to close he would move to another Claim.
Andrew and Minerva never returned to Georgia and died and were buried at San Louis Obisbo Co., California.

This information about my ancestors was taken from an article written by Ethelene Dyer Jones, who was born and raised in Union Co.,Georgia
