Heighter & Mildred JACKSON ?

I am looking for anyone who knows of the Heighter and Mildred Jackson Family. Their birthplace is listed as Virginia, however it looks as though much of their life was spent in Washington,D.C. In the 1920 census a Catherine Jackson age 11 is listed; she is the one I am particularly curious about. She died in Maryland in October 31, 2003, and I am looking up more onto her family. She came from a family of at least twelve. Anyone with knowledge here, please contact me. Joseph

On the Heighter Jackson family there are at least three areas where he is found. In the 1890 Census under Washington,D.C. City Directory Heighter Jackson laborer, location 229 3rd Street South West. The year for this record is 1891.

1910 Federal Census Record for Washington, D.C. shows the following:
Heighter Jackson age 49

Birthplace Virginia
Head of the Family
Parents both born in Va.

1920 census for D.C. does not show Heighter at all nor does it show some of those mentioned in 1910, however it does show Mildred;
Mildred Jackson 54 years old
born about 1866
birthplace Virginia
Head of family

*Heighter died prior to 1920
