    I am not a member of your faith nor of the Jackson family, but I was delighted to fall upon this site. The letters from William Jackson were written from 65 Queens Road, Bootle, Liverpool. That was the address of my family at the turn of the century and it would seem that your Missionaries lodged with my family when serving in Liverpool. William Jackson was new to me – he was not at the lodging on census day 1911. However, two of your group were there – John Tillotson & David Campbell and I have been tracing their lives.

    I would be delighted to know more about their time in Liverpool
