I am at a dead end on researching an ancestor. I have info. on Lottie (Sadie?) Jackson married to a Richard Colmyer. Lottie was labeled as mulatto because her father was black (Berry G.? Jackson) and her mother white Irish (Margaret Ryan).
I am trying to find out who Berry's parents were. I think he was born 1851 in Florida or Georgia. I don't know if he was born into slavery or was a freedman. He was in the 1880 census married to Margaret Ryan in Orleans, New York. He may have been in Texas as a domestic servant in 1870 under the Ward family????
