    Born 15 Mar 1767  Waxhaw Country, South Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • This was a region on Waxhaw Creek that straddled the border of North and South Carolina. Where Jackson was born is subject to dispute. Some allege that he was born in North Carolina at the home of his maternal uncle (by marriage) George McCamie; others that he was born at the home of his maternal aunt, Jane Crawford, in South Carolina. "The evidence advanced for both claims is inconclusive, but the better case is offered by South Carolina if for no other reason than that Jackson himself believed it was his birthplace." [3]
