I saw my Grandfather and relatives

After a hard honest day at work Saturday, I was very tired. I went to sleep getting prepared for my early morning shift I had a dream. A person in the dream said someone I knew very well wanted to see me. He led me to a lake where there was an old tall red skinned stout man in overalls and a big straw hat. When he turned around it was my Grandfather Thomas "punch" Moon. I was in shock when I saw him and so excited that I started to cry. He embraced me and asked me how life has been treating me. He look extremely healthy. My nickname name was "Boojack", he gave me that name as a child. He said Boojack I see you are researching our family, but you can stop now because all of them including me is waiting on you!  I asked, where are they Pop? When he pointed behind him, all of them appeared from a distance, not some but all of them. Moon and Jackson side. He then looked at me and said come follow me. I took five steps and walked the opposite way because I was afraid I would not return.lol. Very interesting dream.

My GreatGreatGrandpa Preston Jackson

This is Press Jackson, my GGGrandfather. He was born of a mother named Mary E. Williams. Said to have been orphaned together a family of slaves took them in, until Isom Lucivus Jackson offered to buy them from the master. In reality this is not his father as I found out. As history of family says Isom was a Cherokee Indian. Mary was a very pale skinned lady, with blonde hair blue eyes. Was said she was actually white.She was born in April 1846 and died april of 1908. Preston est. birth was between 1855 to 1862. Census was way off so he was hard to find. Found he was married twice, first to Dink Reaves and next to Flora Terrel Jackson.  They hard 12 kids together. Very interesting story. He died in 1927 of a heart attack at the age of 72 in Greene County,Ga.
