Searching for my Jackson family line

Journal by jacksonfrazier1

I started researching my family tree about a year ago. I know only a few things about the Jackson side. I know about my great grandmother Mary Ruth Loving that Married Thomas Jefferson Jackson. I have found little after that.

I had a newspaper copy of an Obituary of my great Grandfather Thomas Jefferson Jackson. He was born in Fairfax Virginia to Spencer Jackson and Mary A Richardson in 1848 and died in 1923. I was able to find him when I found his brother John Tyler Jackson and thus found Spencer Jackson and Mary A. Richardson.

The linage that I have is as follows:

Spencer Jackson
Thomas Jefferson Jackson
William L. Jackson
Bobby Lee Jackson
Elizabeth Kay Jackson

I know that Thomas Jefferson Jackson ended up on Fort Worth, Texas and married Mary Ruth Loving daughter of William Ransom Loving Jr. They had 4 children: William Lee Jackson, Francis Bell Jackson, Thomas Jefferson Jackson (Nick) and Ruthie Jackson. Francis Bell Jackson is sometime seen as Franklin Bell Jackson.

I don't know much else. Like I said I have found Spencer Jackson the father of Thomas Jefferson Jackson, but I know nothing else.

I am not good at the researching yet and have a lot to learn, but I am getting pretty good with some basic what if's and running people down. I have worked on other sections of our tree and have eventually have run down a lot of info, but the Jackson side has really stumped me. I hope I can learn some things from this group and find family members. Thank you.
