On the 15th inst. After a tedious illness, in her 15th year, Mary Kennedy daughter of Mr. A. Jackson, Ballygraney. BNL Sept 19 1828. Est DOB abt 1814 NOTE: This would be Andrew JACKSON. At present, I am unsure how he fits into the Jacksons of Co. Down – although I do feel sure that he does. In the Freeholders Records, Andrew JACKSON held lands at Ballygrainy for life of William KENNEDY in 1789, as did John JACKSON. I suspect they were brothers. SEE: ROD 506-243-329353. Feb 18, 1797. Btw John JACKSON and Andrew JACKSON both of Ballygraney Farmers Executors and Administrators of the last will and testament of John JACKSON late of Ballygraney deceased of the 1 pt. & William DENNER [?]  of Belfast Co Antrim [Natlemiat?] of the other pt.

His remains were attended to Killinchy graveyard by 17 Lodges of Orangement, and other loyal people, to the number of 1000, who all behaved peaceably. BNL Aug 28, 1829, Est DOB 1766.
