Mary Susan Jackson and parents
Thomas Walton Jackson and Martha Jane Ramsey


From: Jeanne R. Byrd

The young adult in the picture is Mary Susan Jackson, who I understand was 18 years old. ( I have her birth as 17 June 1844; so, the picture must date about 1862). She was called "Mit".The 1870 Census  for Christian Co.,KY gives her birthplace as VA. Our Family Pictures has a picture of her with her husband Edmund Hails Garrott.  The other people in the picture are the parents of Mary Susan Jackson. Her father Thomas Walton Jackson (b. 4 April 1817 - d. 21 May 1903) and her mother, Martha Jane Ramsey (b. 16 Feb.1824 - d. 7 July 1874).[ She was the daughter of Thomas Ramsey and Phebe Woodall] This Jackson couple migrated from Charlotte Co., VA in 1857.  In the 1870 Census of Christian Co.,KY, Thomas W. Jackson is shown as age 53 and born in VA. Martha J. Jackson is age 46, born in VA. (Martha Jane Ramsey Jackson's name appears in the records of Midway Baptist Church, Charlotte Co. VA. and in family Bible records)
