This book demonstrates the results of tracing my parental lineage back to Hayburn Jackson, Sr. who received a land grant dated 10 July 1788, as recorded in deeds of Sampson County, North Carolina. He was at least 21 years of age when he received the grant. Hayburn (Haburn) Jackson, Jr. was born about 1790 in Sampson County and the names of the children of either Hayburn, Sr. or Hayburn, Jr. can be found in a Sampson County guardianship court order of August 1842.
The known descendants of four children of Hayburn, Jr. are presented in this history. Data was compiled from court minutes, deeds, vital statistics, wills, sparse information presented in other histories, and information provided by living relatives and friends. I attempted to confirm any data I found on the internet with other sources. Many Jacksons can be found in Sampson and surrounding counties of North Carolina and most of those early ones living in Sampson were clustered in a northern area of the county which strongly indicates these Jacksons were related.
