This began as part of a time line I created to help separate one Jackson line (which I believe to be mine) from the others in various Virginia counties. This group of Jacksons seemed heavily involved with members of the Tinsley and Rucker family. Backing the three surnames into Essex and Old Rappahannock Counties showed all three had a close relationship to other families. Many of these new families include wives, whose original surname is unknown, but who married several times. Sorting those early families is the reason behind this particular file. That said, I’m not sure ALL these people are of interest to us Jackson / Tinsley / Rucker researchers; in fact I know some aren’t, but I left them in to show we at least looked at them. I added notes as to why I am including them here – for my own benefit, but hopefully the notes will help others too.
I remain indebted to Rhoda Fone for ‘going the extra mile’ in look-ups and calling in favors from others who have the Essex and Old Rappahannock County books she didn’t. Also, a big thanks goes to Cleve Weathers and Bill Pillow for sharing their expertise on these early families. I am indebted to all who are behind the massive web site for Combes and allied families http://www.combs-families.org/combs/
I’ve cited this as “Combes” followed by the name of the section where the entry is found. Additionally, I thank the various researchers and especially Margaret Amundson, who were involved in extensive discussions of these families on the rootsweb Fauquier Co. VA list.
I apologize for commiting a ‘genealogical no no’ by using the original book and page numbers for citations instead of the specific transcription books where the entries were found. However giving both would make this already cumbersome because of its length file even more so. Also it seemed less confusing to do it this way. The county record notes come from transcriptions or abstracts of the original records by Fred Dorman, Sam & Ruth Sparacio, Beverley Fleet, etc. Patent data comes from Cavaliers & Pioneers edited by Nugent and Hudgins. Approximate birth and marriage years should be considered ‘my best guess’ unless backed by documentable proof.
