    • CENSUS:
      1850: With parents in Augusta Co, age 14.
      1860: With parents in Wood Co, age 23, farmer.

      9 Aug 1863, Wood co: Deed from John J. Jackson & Jane his wife to George W. Guinn, for $200, land in Morehead & Neal's addition to the town of Parkersburg; bounds mention Market St, line between George Deming and the Jacksons. Lot was conveyed on 1 Sept 1857 to Jackson by Wm H. Morehead & George B. Neal. Signed J.J. and Jane E.B. Jackson.
      On same date, next entry in the book, George wrote a note of indebtedness to H.P. Dils and Henry H. Dils, using the property above to secure a debt of $200 due 26 Sept 1864.
      -- Note this deed was on the date of George's wedding to Mary Jackson, so these are probably her relatives (but not parents, per the marriage record). Per the 1860 census, John J. & Jane are of an age to be Mary's uncle, and Henry H. Dils lives near them.
