1.  Martha Jane JACKSON, b. 26 Jul 1828
2.  William Andrew JACKSON, b. 9 Aug 1830; d. 1 Aug 1913, Pulaski Co., MO
3.  James Monroe JACKSON, b. 31 Aug 1830 or 1831-35

7.  George Washington JACKSON, b. 6 Jan 183}; d. 3 Jan 1921, Denver, CO
8.  Lucinda E. JACKSON, b. 1840/1

William's and James's birthyears can't both be correct; as the censuses give James a birthyear between 1831 and 1835, it appears James is the one not born in 1830.

5.  Messages posted to the JACKSON Surname Board (online at Ancestry.com), including one by Mary Miller giving this information:
According to Probate Inventory records of Benjamin JACKSON, dated October 25, 1847, found in Circuit Court records, Potasi, Washington County, MO, Benjamin and his wife died prior to that date.  James SEABOURN(e) was the Administrator of his probate, (the LDS, IGI shows Lucinda Evans as James SEABOURN's mother.) 

The Probate names the following children as children of Benjamin JACKSONMartha Jane, William Andrew, James Monroe, Melvina, Emily (D,) George and Lucinda (E) JACKSON.  In the probate, they were residing in Washington County with "Mrs. Evans."  In the probate, there were receipts for 2 coffins, (Benjamin and his wife must have died at the same time,) expenses for the burial from Caledonia, dated November 24, 1847.  The receipt for medicine, dated December 27, 1847, reads, "for medicine and other necessaries during the last illness of Benj. JACKSON and wife and for shrouding for Mrs. JACKSON."  The burial site of Benjamin and Mrs. JACKSON are unknown at this time.  James M. SEABOURN (spelled Saborne) became the guardian of James age 19, Emily age 15, George W. and Lucinda E. Jackson, on July 21, 1852.
