Andrew's parents came from Boneybefore on the outskirts of Carrickfergus,
Co Antrim. There is a thatched house near where their house stood which
has now been turned into the Andrew Jackson Centre, see for example :-
I would thoroughly recommend the book Sharon quoted "The Ulster Jacksons"
(ISBN 0952993805). It not only tries to trace the ancestry of Andrew
Jackson but also covers Stonewall Jackson with a suggestion that the two
were related. There are chapters about the latter-day Jacksons who
stayed in Ulster.
