Hi Jim, the ros davies site is v interesting but unless I can locate a marriage for John & Rachel (Keen) its difficult as there seems to be a lot of Jacksons & Keens when I looked at the Surnames table. Tks again

Jim have a breakthrough regarding area  in Co Down.
I found Sarah Cottam(n) in 1901 in household of her sister Rachel Cartmel a widow b. ireland Walton on the hill Lancs.
Then found Sarah in 1911 same location with her daughter Fanny a 21 - Sarah a widow States she was born in RATHFRILAND CO DOWN so now I have a location of origin for the Jacksons hopefully :)
