I am working on my Borland line and began sharing info a couple of weeks ago with the co-editor of the Bourland Bulletin, a newsletter for Bourland/Borland lines. I have not confirmed all the relationships, but some of this info on the Jacksons comes from Augusta Co, VA records. The William Jackson property near Ft. Dinwiddie is now in Bath Co, VA due to reorganization of counties in the 1700s.

1. Archibald Borland

m. Jane Jackson (b. abt 1730 (prob. Orange Co VA), d. 1788 or 1789 Orange Co NC)
Jane was the daughter of William and ? Jackson of Augusta Co, VA. William Jackson owned the land where Ft. Dinwiddie was located on Jackson's River. William died on his property, will in Augusta County is dated 1753 (this part of Augusta Co is now Bath Co, VA); Jane Borland was the administrix of her father's estate. William also had son, William Jackson, Jr., who moved to NC with Archibald and Jane Borland.
Jane's will is in Orange Co, NC Will Book, 17 Jan 1789, under the name of "Jean Bowling," widow of Archibald Bourland. It children: Alexander, Abraham, Nancy Flinthom, Isabel, Susannah.
