Migration of the Jaksombe family to the New World and Oceana
Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Jaksombe, or a spelling variation of the surname include: John, Margaret, Robert and Henry Jackson, who all settled in Boston, Massachusetts in 1635; Abram Jackson, who arrived in Virginia in 1667; Ann Jackson, who immigrated to Maryland in 1744.
