Only five of the following JACKSONs are not included in the Jacksons of Ballyboy Family Tree. Some look suspiciously as if they might be. It is wise to bear in mind that Birr and Parsonstown aka Parsons town are often interchangeable and the two parishes border each other. There are plenty of mentions of Parsonstown in the Ballyboy tree, and plenty of mentions of Birr in the ones that are not yet seen to be connected to that tree. More work is needed, but I am going cross-eyed already.

NOTE: Death Cert: Thomas JACKSON (1849-1911) Farmer, d. age 62, Springfield House, Birr

NOTE: Given the description in the probate of Thomas-town, Birr, and the details in the 1901 Census, this is in Thomastown Demesne, Parish Drumcullen, Barony Eglish (owned by Francis BENNET in 1853 Griffiths) although I cannot rule out Thomastown, Parish Ballymacwilliam, Barony Warrenstown (owned by John STRONG and leased to John CLARKE in 1853 Griffiths).

NOTE: 1901 Census Thomas A JACKSON age 37, wife Elizabeth. 1911 Census, married 11 years, age 48.

WITNESS: John Hubert MOORE. There are other deeds involving the same names where Springfield is described as being in Queens Co. Since it is in Drumcullen Parish, this makes no sense to me.
