NOTE: I have only footnoted information in this document pertinent to JACKSONs[3]. This document is intriguing because there seem to be links between Josiah JACKSON of Athy [mentioned beneath] and Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff, Dublin.

[5] Josiah JACKSON. Of great interest to me, is a deed that ties Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff, Dublin, a tanner, to Josiah JACKSON. JACKSON-JACKSON Book Index 1708-1738. Deed: 43-421-28800. Indenture May 6, 1724 Wm. JAMES of Athy. Co. Kildare, Tanner did demise & set to Robert JACKSON of Crooked Staff in Co. Dublin Tanner and Josiah JACKSON of Glassholly, Co. Kildare Farmer lease of house in Athy from Robert JACKSON to Josiah JACKSON for 22 years

[6] Glassceily is likely is likely Glassely, Barony of Narragh & Reban East, Co. Kildare - where so many JACKSONs resided. SEE: Jacksons of Kildare.

[7] Grace JACKSON

[8] Anne JACKSON, according to this diary, died before 1747.

[9] Susannah JACKSON

[10] Sarah JACKSON

[11] Josiah JACKSON. Given the convergence of geography and time-frame, I wonder if this is the Josiah JACKSON who married Mary ALCOCK in 1760, and if so, if he is related to the JACKSONs of Nashe’s Quarter. SEE also: Jacksons of Dublin.

[12] Samuel JACKSON, according to this diary, died before 1747.

[13] Katherine JACKSON
