JACKSON, MYER posted by Diane Ziccardi on Monday, July 23, 2001

I am looking for information regarding my ggg grandfather, Andrew Jackson (b. abt. 1830 in Ohio) and his wife, Mary Myer (b. abt. 1830 in Virginia -- probably now WV). Andrew and Mary were married on June 16, 1847 in Wheeling. The 1850 census shows an Andrew Jackson in Smith Township. There is a Joseph Jackson right next to Andrew in the census. The 1840 census has Joseph, but not Andrew, which would make sense if Andrew lived with Joseph and only Heads of Household were listed in 1840 and 1850. Any information is greatly appreciated.

His parents were David C. Hinds, b 25 Mar. 1844-Tyler Co.,WV. Married Caroline Snider,5 Feb 1864-near Calais, Monroe Co.Oh. David C. Hinds parents were: John Hines/Hinds and Sarah Dearth. John was born abt 1810 and died abt 1853. Sarah then remarried John Nalley and had three more children. Mr. Nalley lived to be 107. I have been unable to locate parents of John Hines/Hinds, or any trace of where he may have lived before marrying Sarah Dearth. Anyone who might have Hines/Hinds as last name has not replied from Belmont Co. My grandmother's last name was FRASHER, and her mother was Sarah Eliz. McWilliams from the John Hogue MCWILLIAMS family of Morristown, Ohio. I would appreciate hearing from any of these family members.
