* The Branch Advocates shall serve on the Executive Committee as representatives of each of the descendancy lines of John and Elizabeth Cummins Jackson’s eight children (George, Edward, John Jr., Elizabeth, Sophia, Mary Sarah, Samuel and Henry). Usually, but not required, a Branch Advocate is a descendant of that branch of the Jackson family. Their duties are to serve as advocate of their represented branch of the family and assist the other officers in the work of the Jackson Brigade. For example, Branch Advocates might recruit members from their line, solicit articles on their line or organize a reunion in a historical area important to their line. (From the Jackson Brigade Bylaws)
