 The four children were most likely the children of Michael JACKSON and Mary McCRACKEN. I would assume that a sister of Enoch PALMER married an Unnamed McCRACKEN, hence the niece Mary who married Michael JACKSON: SEE: Jacksons of St. Catherine's Parish, Dublin: Michael JACKSON (b. 1684, son of Michael) married Mary McCRACKEN. Their children were William b.1714;James b. 1715; Elizabeth b. 1717 and Ann b. 1721. There were more children born after the date of this will.
