Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 367, Monon Township, White County, Indiana

"HIRAM N. JACKS was born in this county in 1841. His parents ISAAC and DEBORAH (WILSON) JACKS, were natives of South Carolina and Kentucky. When young, they both came with their parents to Rush County, Indiana, where they were married, and soon after moved to White County. ISAAC entered a tract of land and made a farm. They were among the first settlers of this county, and for some time manufactured their own clothes. They reared the following children - WILLIAM H., THOMAS P., HIRAM N., JAMES M., ANDREW S., ISAAC, ALLEN M., and LEWIS M. The parents are both deceased, and are buried in the Osborn Cemetery. HIRAM N. JACKS was married in 1861 to MISS MARY E. PRIDE, who was born in Rush County in 1844. They have five children - MARTHA A., OTIS, WILLARD I., STELLA and MAUD. He owns a farm one mile north of the L., C. & N. A. R. R. On this farm there is one of the best artesian wells in the State. MR. JACKS was in the Eighty-seventh Indiana Volunteers, and was wounded at Chickamauga. His brother JAMES M., a member of the same regiment, was killed in the same engagement. Another brother, JOHN W., was a member of the Eleventh Indiana Cavalry."
