The Jacksons of Loonburn, Co. Antrim are connected to the JACKSONs of Steeple, Co. Antrim. Part of my work this spring will be figuring out how they connect. NOTE: I have included some Islandmagee JACKSONs because they are descendants of the Loonburn and likely of the Steeple JACKSONs and hence will turn out to be pertinent.
