Joshua Edward JACKSON
Elizabeth STROUP
Husband:  Joshua Edward JACKSON
Birth:  8 Jul 1848, Ireland
Death:  Jan 1928
Disposition:  buried Norwalk Cemetery, Warren Co., IA
Migration:  Ireland to America in 1859 or 1863
Parents:  born in Ireland
Marriage:  26 Mar 1884, Keokuk Co., IA
Wife:  Elizabeth STROUP
Birth:  24 Nov 1853, Keokuk Co., IA
Death:  Aug 1954(!), Des Moines, Polk Co., IA
Disposition:  buried Norwalk Cemetery, Warren Co., IA
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  John STROUP
Mother:  Mary ALBRIGHT

Elizabeth is said to have died in Aug 1954, which would make her 100 years old at death.  I can't find her in the 1930 census, so I wonder if someone hasn't made a typo and her deathyear shouldn't be 1924.

Children born in IA, possibly in Des Moines, Polk Co., IA:
1.  Mary S. JACKSON, b. 25 Dec 1884
2.  John S. JACKSON, b. 8 Jul 1886
3.  Richard S. JACKSON, b. 14 May 1888
4.  Charlotte S. JACKSON, b. Jan 1890

There are two ink blobs on the record, so I can't read the given name of the wife or eldest daughter's name, but it's a short name, so it must be Mary.

The enumerator tried to squeeze a daughter in-between Mary and John, then lined it out with this note in the margin:  "Transferred to sheet 100 line 49."  I couldn't find sheet 100, but the daughter is in the index, so I've included her (Elizabeth D. JACKSON).  On the other had, Elizabeth is not with them in the 1900 census, and the mother says she's only had six children, so is she really their daughter?  The two STOKES children indexed with them belong to the STOKES household above them.
