WILLIAM JACKSON ~ RHODA DOGGETT
RHODA DOGGETT* was my 4th great
1800 - Rhoda's father, George Doggett, is mentioned in Missouri records
1817 - Jesse & Rhoda had one son: George M. G. Doggett - born in 1817 in Tennessee
1818 - Rhoda, Jesse & George came to Missouri in 1818. The Doggett family is back Washington/St. Francois County, Missouri in 1818 when they sold 300 arpents of land belonging to the heirs of Isaac Doggett to James Bryan.
1813 - 1816 - Rhoda's father is mentioned in Missouri records.
1824 - Jesse Doggett died Oct. 1824 in St. Ferdinand Township, St. Louis, Mo.
1828 - Rhoda marries William Jackson circa 1828
1830 - William Jackson with wife & children matching the correct ages were living in St. Louis in the 1830 census. Jackson, William - St. Ferdinand T. (St. Louis, Mo.) - one boy 10 - 15 years (This fits with George Doggett - Rhoda's son by a previous marriage), one man 20 - 30 years - 1 girl under 5 (this would fit with Mary's age), one woman 30-40 (this would fit with Rhoda's age) - there was a Joseph Jackson living 13 houses from William.
1840 - Have not been able to find William & Rhoda in any 1840 census.
1848 - Rhoda gave a deposition
regarding her brother John Doggett's sanity: This was a suit in
chancery instituted by the appellants who are the widow and heirs of John
Doggett, deceased.........DOGGETT et al. v. LANE et al; Supreme Court of
Missouri; 12 Mo. 215; October, 1848,
Decided..............This was a suit in chancery instituted by the
appellants who are the widow and heirs of John Doggett, deceased...........a
tract of land in St. Louis county, containing 672 arpents..........One
hundred acres of the tract was conveyed by Wm. Massie, who claimed under
Samuel and Amos Duncan, the confirmees to David Barton, and by the
latter to said Doggett; the said Wm. Massie having died, Chas. S. Hempstead,
administrator of Christian Wilt obtained a judgment against the
administrators of said Massie, upon which an execution issued in 1824, which
was levied upon 249 arpents, part of the said tract of 672 arpents, and at a
sale of the same by the sheriff under said execution, the said Doggett
became the purchaser of the said 249 arpents, which was accordingly conveyed
to him by the sheriff. In this way Doggett acquired title to the 100 acres
purchased of Barton and the 248 arpents purchased at sheriff's
sale.................The deed bears date 1st day of June,
1829.............the bill alleges that at the date of this deed John
Doggett, the grantor, was greatly reduced by disease, insomuch that his mind
was greatly impaired, if not entirely gone; that he had been for some time
before that date suffering from protracted sickness, which continued
gradually to grow worse until he finally died of it in 1831............See
the testimony of James Bissell, St. Cyr, Brazeau, Chick, Gardner, Ranney,
Graham, Quick, & Mrs. Jackson.
[need to get copy of testimony of Mrs. Jackson as she is my 4th gr.
grandmother & sister to John Doggett.]
1850 - Rhoda, along with her children, was living in St. Francois County with her son George M.G. Doggett in the 1850 census. There was no mention of her husband William. Also in the household were Eliza, Martha, Frances & Asa Jackson. They were the only Jackson's in St.FranCoMo for this year.
1860 - Rohda died prior to 1860 as her children are living with their half-brother, George M.G. Doggett, in St. Francois Co., Mo. Rhoda was not listed so is presumed to be deceased.
CHILDREN OF RHODA & WILLIAM:
William Jackson (Ste. Genevieve Archives) - File # 226 - Time frame is not right to be my Wm. Jackson unless, perhaps, it is his father?
