The newspaper announcement provided needed clarification that Alice was a daughter of Coe Downing Jackson. The problem is that a daughter named Alice does not appear in the 1860 and 1870 census entries for this family. Instead, a daughter named Sarah E. Jackson appears to be the same age as Alice Rosemon. Sarah is not seen after "Alice" marries Cornelius Rosemon. If Sarah's middle initial had been A instead of E, I would be more comfortable with this switch.
