Thank you for responding so quickly. I forgot I had already found the father of R.E. Jackson thru the LDS family search website but it didn't give me J.T. Jackson's parents. Was John Thomas Jackson the son of John Calhoun Jackson and also the brother of Emma Frances "Fannie" Jackson? Sorry, I didn't quite understand your Rufus Ezra Jackson & Martha Levorah Shelnut connection after reading some of your other posts re Joseph Jackson. Also,fyi, my grandfather, Mitchell Gay Wood, and his first wife had a son, Joe Burney Wood who md. Ninna Belle Jackson. Ninna told me her parents were Rufus Ezra Jackson b. 22Oct1881 d. 15Mar1969 and Elizabeth Nutt. Here is Ninna's obit which spelled her name wrong as well as her husband's and Harvey Shelnutt(right?-not Shelnurr):
