?Speculation:  Rebecca possibly died 1822/23 - Philip sold land in 1823 & again in 1824.  In each case there was no wife's relinquishment of dower as there was in 1814 when he & Rebecca sold property which may indicate Rebecca died 1822/23.  And since all the children were baptized the same day in 1822 maybe she wanted to see her children baptized before she died. 

before 1804 - There were two conspicuous Jacksons who were in Spanish Territory before 1804, date of the Louisiana Purchase.  They were William Jackson, whose landgrant was assigned to John Byrd [Mo.
