Corrections on Joseph Jackson and Elizabeth Heard.
Actually Elizabeth's maiden name was Hood not Heard.
And Joseph and Elizabeth may have been married in GA
before 1800. The Hood family may have moved to GA from
NC prior to 1800. Joseph and Elizabeth apparently div-
orced in MS after the birth of son Eli Hood (b. 1828
in MS) I have several copies of letters Eli Hood McGinty
(E.H.) wrote to my Gr Grandfather Thomas McGinty in 188s'.
Both E.H. and Thomas refer to Joseph as their father.
Joseph may have married Emily Scroggins in MS prior to
moving to AR in late 1830s. And there is a possibility
that Joseph and Emily Scroggins had three children in
the 1840s. And that Emily Scroggins McGinty may have died
after the birth of their third child in 1848. The 1850
Conway County AR census does not show an Emily (wife)
of Joseph but a Melissa as house keeper. Melissa is not
listed as Joseph's wife in the 1850 census but after
Joseph's death in 1851 and in the marriage records when
Melissa married Moses House in 1853 she is shown as Melissa
Mcginty marrying Moses House. It does appear that she did
marry Joseph McGinty. As far as we know now the date of her
marriage to Joseph is unknown. Joseph owned a farm in
Conway Co. Ar and records exist proving this. The farm
was located on the East side of the North Cadron Creek
and on the South side of the Old Springfield-Desarc Road.
The nearest cemetery to Joseph's farm is the McMillen
Cemetery and the cemetery appears to be inactive today.
And it is possible Joseph may be buried in that cemetery.
Anyone having evidence otherwise as stated above please
respond with your posting. Thank You.
