      John Jackson's will was made on August 26, 1724, and proved December 6, 1725, so he certainly died in 1725.  The will disposed of considerable land to all his sons and left slaves and furniture to his daughters, he having nine children in all. 
      John Jackson was Sheriff of Queens County in 1691, was a member of the Assembly, and a Colonel of the Long Island militia.  His rank in the militia was a very high one for the times and the details of his appointment are not known but the fact of his commission is well established.  He was promoted from Captain to Major in 1697.  In 1700 he was a Lieutenant Colonel commanding the regiment of foot of Queens County under commission of the Earl of Bellomont, Governor of the Province of New York, and later promoted.
