Re: Major Cook and Family: Richmond, VA/Detroit, M

Dear Michelle,

For some information on Oliver T. Jackson, please go to:

James Harvey Jackson was born in 1850 in Virginia to Hezekiah Jackson and Virginia Caroline Chavis. They migrated to Oxford, Butler Co., Ohio in the 1850s. James married Virginia Cook (b. 1854 in Detroit, MI) in the early 1870s and had two children: Cora Jackson (b. 1874) and Harvey Cook Jackson (b. 1876). They resided in Cleveland, Ohio. By 1900, Harvey Cook Jackson and his mother were in Detroit. James Harvey is on the 1900 US Census in Colorado with his brother Oliver, Oliver's wife Sadie, and their niece Jennie Jackson (daughter of another brother).

Please contact me at to discuss further.
