"James and Louisa were to have eight children, the youngest of whom was George, Jacko's father. It is notable that the eldest, William Haines Absalom, was born in 1861, three years prior to the marriage date, and that his name was sometime omitted from later official documents, although George's birth certificate still includes him in the count."
