NOTES AND REFERENCES
Harry L. Jackson's Some Descendants of John and Elizabeth Cummins Jackson in Kentucky: Kentucky Relatives of Stonewall Jackson (Cleveland, Ohio: the author, 1976), p. 2, states, "Elizabeth Hutcheson [sic], mother of Old Hickory, was one of the six noted and popular daughters of Cyrus Hutchinson, a soldier who fought in the battle of Carrickfergus in Ireland." However, Andrew Jackson's paternal lineage, as presented in this volume, is incorrect. Ronald Vern Jackson's Andrew Jackson and Rachel Donelson Ancestry (Salt Lake City: Accelerated Indexing Systems, Inc., 1980), chart 1, shows President Jackson was a great-grandson of a Samuel Jackson (rather than Thomas). Elizabeth Hutchinson is shown as the daughter of Robert William Hutchinson and Margaret Lisle, both of Antrim, Ireland, "based part on family tradition and some old books in the National Archives."
