Both women were very beautiful......I wonder why Julia died at such a young age of 27? She has her father's eyes to some degree, but she doesn't seem to have the "lazy eye" symptom
By "lazy eye" are you possibly thinking of Julia Dent Grant? As far as I've ever read, Mary Anna Morrison Jackson suffered no such problem, nor did her husband, so I see no reason Julia would have either.

I don't see anything wrong with Jackson; any problem as serious as Julia Dent Grant's would've been remarked on, as was hers when someone suggested to the General that she could have her eye "fixed" and he told them he loved her just the way she was.

She did not have the "lazy eye" symptom, but did she suffer from a facial paresis? I have never noticed it before, but looking at the photos I have noticed that she only seemed to be able to move one side of her mouth. It's always just half a smile. Facial paresis (or palsy) can easily occur if a tooth was pulled and the facialis nerve was damaged in the process. I have never read about that in connecion with Anna Maria Morrison Jackson, but that is what might have happended to her.

Julia Jackson was the spitting image of her father as a child and a very beautiful young lady. What a tragedy she died that young!
