Looking for any information on my Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Jackson, born Feb 25, 1900 , died October 1, 1963. He is my grandfather that I never met and I can not seem to find any information on his family. His father was Marion Jasper Jackson born March 31, 1871, and mother was Frances Abbie Morris, born Sept 23, 1869 in Stewart County Tn. Moved to Herrin Illinois sometime in early 1900's. Benjamin Jackson had several brothers and sisters, including Asa Gray, Samuel M Jackson, Florence Jackson, Lena Jackson, John Jackson, Beatrice Jackson

Benjamin was married to Laura Daugherty and they had two children together, Ernest Raymond Jackson, my father , born Dec 20, 1923 , still living, and Roy Franklin Jackson, Born April 3, 1922, died Feb 8, 1950,

From what I gather, his family lived in Dover, Tennessee, moved to Herrin Illinois to work in the coal mines. Ben left my grandmother after my father was born, and returned to Dover, Tennessee sometime around 1923 or 1924.

Any information, please contact me at my email tamcall911@yahoo.com. Thank you
