An article on William Wirt Jackson.
The State Journal says that Judge J. M. Jackson received on Saturday last a long and very interesting letter from his sister, Mrs. America Small, who has been making a tour of the old world. She gives a graphic description of the places which she has visited. The letter was dated at Rome and the writer stated she had stood on the very spot where Caesar fell and had visited many other places of interest in that part of the country. She contemplates a weeks visit in St. Petersburg. (March 14, 1885 "Weston Democrat")

John J.'s children with Jane Elizabeth Beeson Gardner:
Diane Williams, a descendant, has advised us that her name was "Jeannie" and that her grandchildren referred to her as "Mussie." She is listed as "Jeannie" on her marriage record to Preston Brooks Tobin (Wes Cockran Parkersburg Marriage which state she was age 20 - b. 1871). This marriage record conflicts with the 1873 birthdate given in the 1880 census. Genealogists have given her the name "Jeanette" and the 1880 census lists her as "Janet" age 7. Since oral tradition is strong in Diane's family it is likely that she carried the name "Jeannie" throughout her life. "Jeannie" was often used as a nickname for Jeanette and more research needs to be done to clarify her name. I notice that the census gives the name of the next daughter as "Bessie" age 4, which is probably a nickname for Elizabeth, so the family did use nicknames.
