A woman is looking for any information that would help her locate the parents of John Jackson Lassiter, born October 13, 1792, in Richmond County, North Carolina, and died July 4, 1892, in Walton County. John Jackson Lassiter is listed on the census records as a farmer. He and his wife, Nancy Prescott Lassiter, lived most of their married life and had 15 children in Walton County. She would appreciate your help.
I'm also looking for the same info. I haven't been able to find anything past this point. I'm also looking into 1 of his grandchildren Malcolm Lassiter, he married Sally Thompson. So far I see they had only 2 children Ethel Lee Lassiter and Shelby Bibb Lassiter. she married George Washington Busbee (my great grandparents). I've not been able to find any info on my great, great grandparents at all. I would greatly appreciate any kind of information on John Jackson Lassiter and Malcolm Lassiter.

I know this is an old topic, but I thought I would provide an update and clarification for any future researchers.
Malcolm Brown Lassiter was born on November 18, 1848 in Pike County, AL and was the son of Jason Lassiter and Thena Cotton Lassiter. He died on January 21, 1919 and is buried in an unmarked grave in Clear Springs Cemetery. His wife Sarah Thompson was also born in Pike County, AL and was the daughter of Asa Thompson. Jason was born in NC and is the son of Elijah Lassiter of Johnston County. Elijah was a Revolutionary Soldier. I am a member of the SAR on his line.
Malcolm and his extended family moved to the Covington County, AL / Walton County, FL area sometime after 1908. I am descended from his son, Robert Bernie, who died on September 29, 1916 of malaria and typhoid fever and is buried at Center Ridge Methodist Church Cemetery in Pike County. Robert Bernie was working for the L&N railroad at the time of his death. His family moved back to Pike County to be near his wife's family and eventually moved to Columbus, GA.
Malcolm is not the son of John Jackson. The families were definitely distantly related, but I am unsure of the connection. John Jackson does not appear to be the son of Elijah.
