I found a family line that may fit.  I will send a copy of the records that I found.  More work likely needed to verify this.
Samuel S. Jackman b.c. 1826 in Canterbury, Merimac, NH, m. 1851 Sarah E. Davison
   Eugene C. Jackman b.c. 1852 in IL, m.187x Etta L.
   Jesse M. Jackman b.c. 1856 in IL
   Alice I. Jackman b.c. 1859 in IL
   Cyrus J. Jackman b.c. 1860 in IL? m. Roxena
      Melvin Jackman b.c. 1886 in Ne, m. Elizabeth Wall
      Alice Jackman b.c. 1899

Samuel S. Jackman was a Captain in the Illinois Infantry 1861 for about a year and resigned possibly due to health or injury.  Military records may be useful.  He died shortly after.  Wife Sarah and chlildren next found in Nebraska.

Since Samuel was born in NH, it is possible that he is related to one of the lines that we have tested.  There is a line dating back to Devonshire, England that settled in Newbury MA, 1659 with descendants in NH.  Those lineages will soon be posted on our Patriarchs page.

So far two in our Group x of the Anderson / Andersen Project have done FTDNA Y DNA Test 111 and also tested positive for the Scottish 'Picts' SNP marker S695.

Our Groups furthest Ancestors to date are:
For three members of our Group X their furthest known ancestor is the Rev. Nathan Anderson of Hanover and Louisa Counties of Virgina 1740 - 1800+.

For two of our Group X members our furthest known ancestor is David Anderson who
died in Louisa County near Gum Springs area in 1781. David married Judith Anderson whom died in 1816.

Generational Difference between Rev. Nathan Anderson and David Anderson.
A 3 Generational difference according to FTDNA Y DNA 111 test between FTDNA Kit# 86095 and Kit # 308026.

While both Kit#s 86095 and 308026 have both tested Positive for SNP S695
I (86095) has also done the Big Y Test of which I have 6 new SNPs which can be
seen on Alex Williamson's Big Tree located on webpage by searching for "Anderson 86095":

Scottish SNP marker S695 is before the use of Surnames or Clan names so several Surnames are descendants of S695. The six new SNPs I have on the webpage above are
getting us much closer to when Surnames were first used in Scotland.

Interested any hearing from those who test positive for SNP S695 or are related to Scottish Anderson's in Louisa or Hanover Counties of Virginia.

We suspect our Scottish ancestors in Virgina from Scotland to be Robert and Charles Anderson located on Stone Horse Creek in Hanover County Virginia. Robert also patented land just above Gum Springs, Louisa County, Va left of Owens Creek. There are two Licking Hole Creeks in Louisa County Va. Robert patented his land on
a creek marked on a Confederate Civil War map as "Lickn Hoe Branch" left of Owens Creek. When you follow this branch down into Goochland County Va you see the legal name for this branch is Licking Hole Creek. This area in Louisa County Va and the Stone Horse Creek area in Hanover were clearly Scots and Presbyterians.

I would like to establish a target balance for the General Fund of $300.00.  We are currently at $200.00.  Once we reach that target, I would like to begin group testing.  At no time will the balance in our General Fund fall below $100.00, so that gives you the parameters for when Group Testing will be conducted and cease temporarily.

All Group Testing will require a minimum 50% match by the individual involved.  Since I am dedicated to helping Members establish Lineages and discover their place on the yDNA Haplotree, my first priority will be to offer those Members who have tested only 12 markers an opportunity to upgrade to 25 markers if they will pay for half of the cost.  In addition, for those Members who have not tested beyond the FTDNA estimate of their early SNP mutation and are not in Lineages where some other Member has already tested further, a similar matching offer will apply to any SNP Pack, if one is available.  Beyond these two priorities, Suzanne and I will consider any other yDNA testing proposal from any Member, other than those who are connected to us personally in some way, with the exception of Big Y, which is beyond the financial means of the Project's General Fund.  You can submit these proposals for New Member testing, STR upgrades, and SNP testing in a private e-mail to Suzanne, me or both of us.  These will not be discussed with the Membership.  In all cases, Suzanne and I will decide which Group Tests will be purchased.

If there should be more demand for testing than our limited means can provide, we will effectively conduct an auction and give those involved an opportunity to raise their matching level, which will presumably both limit the number of testing candidates and help preserve the Project's funds.  The testing priority will be determined by how much an individual is willing to contribute to the test in such a case.

If you would like to contribute to the Project's General Fund, here is the link:

His name is Melvin Jackman. He was born around 1889 (give or take). He was married to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wall in 1916 and died in 1918 (one month before my grandmother was  born. He was married and died in Sevier County Arkansas.

His daughters name was Melvelean Virginia Jackman, born in DeQuien Sevier Arkansas. I have a copy of the marriage certificate and death info but nothing else.

There is a possibility that he was from Nebraska and his father was Syrus/Cyrus and mom Roxena. I have exhausted all possibilities and even contacted the clerks office in Sevier county and they didn't have much. I want to complete this line and see how far back I can go with his lineage. I have a lot on Melvelean's side but not on his. Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated and I will do what I can to return the favor.
