Birth information used here is taken from tombstone.
Irvin Jackson and Kizzy Bryant Jackson had the following children according to the 1870 and 1880 Pike Co. AL Census: James/Eliza/Margaret/John & Henry. 1870 census indicates James born about 1865 and 1880 census indicates James born about 1867. The middle initial of James does not show up as being James R. but Irvin's dad was James R. Jackson.
The Jacksons, Bryants, Brays and Thomases were closely entwined and seem to move with each other. The 1890's showed a large influx into Geneva county from Pike,Coffee and Dale. All the Bryant's moved at that time receiving land patents for Geneva County. I find that there was also a land patent for James R. Jackson for Geneva County AL 22 Oct 1894 and later a land patent for James R. Jackson for Walton Co. FL 12 May 1899. There is also a patent for Irvin Jackson for same date, and same section, township and range in Walton Co. FL. Apparently James took over his dad's original patent.
In a deed titled Bryant Heirs Geneva Co. AL book J pg 330-335, there is a listing of all Bryant heirs for Emeline Bryant. Kizzy Bryant Jackson is apparently deceased so inheritance falls to her children. Listed are James and Caroline Jackson, Walton Co. FL, Margaret and William Grant, Geneva Co. AL, Henry and Amanda Jackson State unknown, Eliza Jane Jackson state unknown.
