Jackson Family Submitted 13 Nov 1999 by Boone White Mark Lambert Jackson was born in Mecklenburg Co. VA about 1760 . His mother was Jemima Jackson. His father was John Lambert. John Lambert was married to someone named Elizabeth at the time. They were charged with adultery by the court in Mecklenburg VA on 9 May 1774. Order Book 2, page 274. They did not appear at the next court session and were found guilty as charged and fined 1000 lbs of tobacco each to be paid to " St. James Parish where this offense was committed," for the benefit of the poor. Mark Lambert Jackson was married (1st) to Drucilla Rainey on 8 Nov 1784. Frances Rainey was security. Evidently Drucilla died, and Mark Lambert Jackson married (2nd) Leannah Basey Webb on 3 July 1787, John Webb security. Then his parents, Jemima Jackson and John Lambert were married 2 Aug 1785 with Joseph Lambert security. When Mark Lambert Jackson was 14 years old, John Lambert deeded 500 acres of land to him. The transaction was signed off on by his wife Elizabeth. She must have been a very understanding person. This record from Mecklenburg Co. court proceedings.

(probably in Maury Co. TN) All of the above children, except as noted born in Mecklenburg Co. VA. There are more than 100 grandchildren. Mark Lambert Jackson died 1823, and his will is recorded in Maury Co. TN. (I have a copy of it and the court actions mentioned above) I am seeking any information on these Lambert and Jackson families hoping to establish who their parents were. There is another Mark Jackson who lived in Mecklenburg VA and who moved to Maury Co. TN where he died, who is different from this Mark Lambert Jackson. I have considerable information on this Mark Jackson family and an Ambrose Jackson family from Mecklenburg Co., which appeared in a 10 part article in the late 1980s in the Virginia Genealogical Quarterly.
