Biography by Lester LeMay:

 

” Samuel grew up in mountainous frontier land where danger from hostile Indians was forever present. His occupation farming, his avocation hunting. He was evidently a man of much strength, for one early account (Cutright, p. 360) tells how he carried his brother-in-law Philip Reger over his shoulder for some miles in the wilderness when Reger was bitten by a rattlesnake. He also included their rifles and even the snake in his pack! For a mountain remedy for snakebite was to cut open the snake and apply it to the wound. the remedy failed and another was tried, but Reger recovered to recount the strength and endurance of Samuel Jackson and his 8 mile walk.

 

By 1810 we find Samuel and his family in Wood County, Virginia with a family of 2 girls and 5 boys but Cutright on page 329 lists a land grant in Randolph County on Pecks Run adjoining the lands of George Jackson, Esq., and John Reager on November 25, 1800. In 1817 Samuel and Barbara sold 309 of the original 400 acres to Isaac Wamsley.

 

In 1818 however the family settled in Section 33 of Franklin Township in the newly formed Owen County, Indiana. The 1820 census lists a Samuel Jackson with three sons and a daughter but the wife is missing. Samuel was appointed Superintendent of road building for Section 16 south to Greene County in 1819. (Blanchard). The 1905 Report of the State Geologist, p. 889 says, ‘At Jackson’s Bluff, southwest quarter Section 33 (9N, 4W), between Freedom and Farmers, the upper Huron limestone is exposed 18 feet in thickness.’ Could Samuel have been appointed road Superintendent because his land contained the best material?

 

In 1822 the town of Spencer was formed and lots were sold at an open bidding session for which the county appropriated $9.87 1/2 for whiskey — an appropriate beverage to loosen the bids of the audience! Samuel Jackson bought lot #169 for $50.

 

Samuel and Barbara’s children were all most likely born in Virginia. [names the children]. They probably all married in Indiana [gives marriages].

 

Samuel and his sons established the Jackson ferry across the White River near Vilas in 1823. In 1979 it was still in use as a farm ferry. Jacks Creek in nearby Greene County was named for Henry Jackson (Baber).

 

In 1825 Samuel bought land in Vigo County from the estate of Truman Blackman. Here in Harrison Township, northeast of Terre Haute, Samuel and Barbara remained until their deaths — Barbara in 1838 and Samuel in 1842. A cemetery on this property contains the gravestones of Samuel’s son Jacob and his wife Mary, and also Louisa, wife of John R., and his daughter Louisa, both who died on June 11, 1831.

 

The children scattered. Isaac migrated to Jasper County, Missouri where he died in 1852. Henry stayed in Owen County where he died in 1865. Mary Brake likely remained in Vigo County. Her death date has not yet been found. John R. Jackson died ca 1854-55 in Muscatine County, Iowa but also had property in Champaign County, Illinois at the time of his death. Joel died 1843 in Newton County, Missouri and Jacob died 1876 on the home place in Vigo County, Indiana.”

Jackson Cemetery, Terre Haute, Indiana

 

In 1974, as part of her studies at Indiana State University, Tamara Chaney became interested in a pioneer cemetery in Terre Haute which was established around 1830. Located on Maple Avenue, north of Fruitridge, east of the old Tumpane picnic grounds was the Old Jackson Cemetery. [Tribune-Star, Terre Haute, Indiana, July 21, 1974, Foulkes].

 

“Cemetery Commission Adds Data to Old Vigo Burials” by Dorothy Clark, Tribune Woman’s Editor.

 

Cemeteries were established in Vigo County as early as 1811 (at Fort Harrison), but it was not until the 1930’s that a major effort was made to record the locations of all these pioneer graveyards.

 

The Fort Harrison Chapter DAR members and the late A. R. Markle took on the job of copying tombstone inscriptions and mapping out the locations and legal descriptions of the old burials. The completed work was compiled into a volume placed in the public and historical society libraries.

 

The Vigo County Cemetery Commission has been slowly adding to the information gathered forty years ago, and several changes and additions have been made.

 

In 1959, information came from Mrs. Raymond H. (Sandra) Johnston about a cemetery located directly east of the former Tumpane picnic grounds on land behind the Johnston’s home in dense woods. She had spotted a large fence with the gate inscribed “Jackson Cemetery – 1870”. She believed the marked graves outside the fence were not member of the Jackson family.

 

Just recently, an ISU student majoring in history, Miss Tamara Chaney, became interested in the old graveyard in the northeastern section of Harrison township, and carefully copied all tombstone inscriptions in the Jackson cemetery.

 

She researched the land records and abstract for the property and found that Samuel Jackson deeded the land involved to Jacob Jackson in 1830. The administrators of Samuel’s estate in 1842 were Jacob, John R. and Henry Jackson.

 

The earliest burial that was still marked with a tombstone was that of Louisa, wife of J. R. Jackson, who died June 11, 1831, age 31 yeas. Their three month old daughter was buried with the mother.

 

The large Jackson monument marks the graves of Jacob Jackson and his wife Mary (both were born in 1809, died in 1876 at age 67 years) and their six children recorded as Barbara A. 1832, aged 2 months, L. Emeline, 1834-1851, age 18 years;, Mary C. 1837-1852, aged 15 years; L. D. 1839-1872, age 33 years; Jacob R. 1841-1870, age 29 years and Addie 1845-1852, aged 7 years.

 

When Jacob died in 1876, his heirs were Caroline Preston, wife of Irving V. Preston; Emeline Armstrong, wife of William P., and Jacob Jackson, a minor child.

 

The relationship to the Jackson family, if any, remains unknown of Andrew Keys whose tombstone tells of his death in 1863, age 28, “in the service of his country.”

 

Contemporaries of the Jackson children were William Henderson whose stone is inscribed: “Died Nov. 1, 1870, age 39 years. Beloved husband thou hast left me, But ’tis God that hast bereft us, He all our sorrows can heal,” and Oren Henderson who died Sept. 1841, age 13 years. Their relationship, if any, to the Jackson clan is also unknown.

 

One stone has only one legible name “Rebecca” while another footstone has initials “J. W. N.”. Tow stones are broken off with their inscriptions completely weathered away.

Jane Foulkes information on Samuel from: DAR Application paper #164160; Cutright, W. B., History of Upshur County, West Virginia, p. 541-546; Beckwith’s, History of Vigo County, Indiana, p. 178, for daughter, Mary; Cook, R. B., Family and Early Life of Stonewall Jackson, and Jane Lutz’s, The Crites History. The last two both list a sixth son, for Samuel, William Crawford, but unable to ever find any mention of William in any book or record. Jane Foulkes of Terre Haute, Indiana, who had done extensive research in her city and in other states where this family resided has been unable to locate information concerning this William. (Personal visit with Jane Foulkes, March 1992. lbm)

 

John, Henry and Jacob listed as administrators of Samuel’s estate in Vigo County, Will Index, will missing.

 

In the Jasper County, Missouri 1850 census there is a Eleanor Jackson living next door to Jonathan Rusk on one side and Reuban Rusk on the other side. Reuban married a daughter of Isaac Jackson. Could this Eleanor Jackson be the widow of William Crawford Jackson? She is listed as age 39, born in Virginia. Her children, all born in Missouri are: Joel 14, John M., 13, Carroll, 10, James H., 8, Ellenor, 6, and Pamela 4.

“Among the earliest tracts settled in this township by entry and Government patents were the north half of the south east quarter of Section 11 by Charles C. Orr, July 13, 1847, the southwest quarter of Section 12, January 1848 by John Steers; also the east half of the southeast quarter of Section 12 by Isaac Jackson, December 4, 1846…the settlers, for the land was taken up by some of them and held some years before this, but was not patented because the Government survey was not made until about 1844 in the west part of the county and in 1838 in the eastern”.

The Stone House

written by Eula Smith

 

“ Henry Jackson was a Franklin Township pioneer. By about 1849 he was ready to move from the original log cabin in Section 33 into a new stone house on the east side of White River just north of the Greene county line…

 

In the 1850 census his household included wife Nancy and three children: Samuel, Barbara and Theresa. Three other children were young adults: Artemisha, Elizabeth and Andrew.

 

By 1860 Theresa Jackson had married Albert Dyer but had returned home with their son Henry.

 

Artemisha Jackson married Richard Howard Gentry. After his death she lived in the stone house.

 

On December 29, 1889, David Harrah married Amannda Dyer, grand daughter of Henry Jackson and they started housekeeping in the stone house. However, they soon moved to California.

 

CecilGentry, daughter of Millard Fillmore “Dick” Gentry and Minerva (Light) Gentry, was born in the stone house in December of 1892. Cecil’s grandfather, Ellis Gentry, was a brother of Artemisha’s husband.

 

Mom said, “Nerva Light Gentry managed the ferry on White River near out land. I think that was when she was a girl.” [ submitted by Wayne Jackson, Houston, Texas]

Left ‘lot #8 or #9 in roes second addition in Urbana, Illinois, which I purchased about the 15th or 20th of September 1854″ to Mary Louisa Powel “during her life time and to her bodily heirs, if she leaves any.” Also asked that $525 be taken from his estate to build a house “of good material” on said lot. House was to be rented and proceeds of which were to be applied to education and maintainance of Mary Louisa Powel.

Reference Mary Louisa Powel: (Foulkes)

 

“I have no idea as to why she was befriended by John R. Jackson. She was probably the “small girl” mentioned in bills found in his estate file. One bill was owed James Chambers Sr. for boarding said Jackson and small girl for 25 weeks at $3 per week, plus $50 for keeping one mare during same period. This bill, with $15 interest for two years, was sworn and subscribed before the Clerk of District Court of Muscatine, Iowa. The other bill was just a slip of paper stating that $25.50 was owed to Asa Hayes for keeping child from August 12 to December 16, 1854 making 16 weeks.”

 

Children of John Jackson and Louisa Vaughan are:

27                 i.     Mahala4 Jackson. She married William Heater 14 April 1853.

“Paper in Vigo County, Indiana, Probate Box 26 (1844) states John R. Jackson had a son named Samuel A. Jackson. Must have died sometime between 1844 and 1854 as John R. Jackson does not list him as an heir. No death record or tombstone inscription for him found in Vigo County Indiana or in Champaign County, Illinois.” [Foulkes}

“Joel and Rebecca were first cousins, their mothers were sisters. They first settled at Terre Haute, Indiana on land that the town is built on, known then as Fort Harrison prairie. They are listed in the 1850 Marion Township, Newton County, Missouri census, the first three children born in Iowa.

 

The Jackson family lived on Silver Creek between Redings Mill and Thurman, Newton County, about 3 miles SE of Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri.   Joel left debt. [Lantz/Andrews: This information conflicts with burial in Missouri?] After Joel’s death Rebecca married a second time to a Mr. Davis. (LeMay)

 

Joel received land from his father in Vigo County, Indiana 19 March 1830. He sold it to Leonard Brake by deed (Book12, p. 18) in Vigo County before 28 August 1847.

William Cooley:

 

” Among the early settlers of Jasper County, Missouri, who came with his little family to this locality in 1839, was Samuel M. Cooley, who was born in Pennsylvania, but who became a resident of Indiana when a young man. There he married the daughter of neighbor, Margaret Rusk by name, and a few years later she accompanied him to the new home. Her death occurred when she was about forty years of age, and her husband survived her for several years. He located near Smithfield, in Twin Grove township, taking up government land. At that early day the county was not yet laid out, and Samuel M. Cooley was one of those selected to assist in the laying out of the townships. In all of the matters pertaining to the progress and advancement of the county and the township his clear judgment and sensible ideas were of great value. In that pioneer home he and wife reared a family of ten children, eight of whom grew to maturity and three of whom still survive.

 

William C. Cooley, the subject of this review, was born in Montgomery County, Indiana, June 31, 1835, and was about four years of age when his parents came to make their home in the wild districts of Jasper County. One of the first buildings erected by these early settlers was the school-house, and in one of these primitive log cabins, where the benches were made of split logs and the huge fireplace extended across one whole side, our subject acquired his education. At the age of fourteen years he was left an orphan, and from that time he was the arbiter of his own fortunes. Reared to toil, he soon became an acceptable assistant on neighboring farms, receiving for his first labor the sum of seven dollars a month, and until he was nineteen years old he was only able to make fifteen dollars a month.

 

In 1860 Mr. Cooley was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Jackson, who was born in Jasper County, Missouri, and had been his playmate and companion from childhood. her family was also one of the pioneer ones in the county. Five children were born of this marriage: Alfred and Walter died in infancy; Alice is the wife of John Manlove, and they reside on Mr. Cooley’s farm; Isabel is the wife of H. L. Byran, and they live on part of the farm; and William also farms on a portion of the home land. All of their children are conveniently located near their father. Mr. Cooley lost his wife twenty years ago.

 

In 1860, after his marriage, mr. Cooley settled in Twin Grove township, but when the war troubles arose the next year the family removed to Fort Scott, Kansas. Seven times they went back to the old home, but political feeling was so high at that time that they did not remain there until the eighth return. Mr. Cooley has been located on his present farm for about sixteen years, and owns five hundred acres of fine land, some of which is rich in mineral deposit and has been found to produce fine ore.

 

Mr. Cooley has always been a Democrat in his political convictions, and his served the township as collector. He will always support the party while at advocated free coinage of silver. He is one of the most respected citizens of Jasper County, and has witnessed and taken part in the wonderful development which sixty years have produced in this locality. He has recently traveled through Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Colorado, but says he saw no country to compare with Jasper county, Missouri, and returned entirely contented to make his home here. ”

During a severe drought in Texas. Henry Clay sent word to his brother, Joel E., that he needed help. Joel E. wrote asking how he could help–said he could send money. Henry Clay wrote “don’t send money. We can’t eat money. Send us something to eat.” Joel E. sent a train car full of corn to the end of the railroad. Henry Clay and his neighbors went there and hauled the corn home in wagons. Henry Clay shared with everyone and wouldn’t take any pay for the corn. The next time the corn crop made, Henry Clay had his barns full of returned corn. (Lantz/Andrews).

Silas A. Stuckey

 

“On the roster of county officials in Jasper County appears the name of Silas A. Stuckey and no higher testimonial of his faithful and efficient service can be given than a statement of the fact that he has been reelected for a second term of four years so that his incumbency will continue until 1903. He was born in Bedford, Pennsylvania, December 16, 1850, a son of Richard S. and Martha J. (McVictor) Stuckey, both of whom were also natives of Bedford. The father was a farmer by occupation, and his father was one of the pioneer settlers of Bedford. He became very prominent in military circles there and was known as Major Stuckey, being for a long period connected with the militia of Pennsylvania with official rank. he married a Miss Silvers, of Pennsylvania, whose ancestors came to this country with the Penn colony. After engaging in the cultivation of his farm in Pennsylvania for a number of years Richard S. Stuckey brought his family to the Mississippi valley, locating in Knox county, Illinois, where he resided until 1867, at which time he came to Jasper county, Missouri, settling near Twin Grove upon a new farm. He improved the land, transforming it into richly cultivated fields, and upon that place both he and his wife spent their remaining days.

 

Silas A. Stuckey was only two years of age when his parents went to Illinois, where he was reared until his sixteenth year. He began his education in the common schools, later attended a high school and then supplemented that course by study in a normal school. After coming to Jasper county he pursued a four-months course of study, and for seven years engage in teaching through the winter months, proving a capable educator. On expiration of that period he embarked in business, engaging in merchandising. After four years, however, he abandoned commercial pursuits to engage in zinc and lead mining, which he has followed successfully in the vicinity of Joplin. He is at present financially interested in the Duenweg mine and also the Lehigh mine, both in Jasper county. Mining has become one of the leading industries of this portion of the state, and the development of the rich mineral resources of southwester Missouri contributes not alone to the individual prosperity of the stockholders but also to the general success and welfare. Mr. Stuckey also aided in organizing the Carl Junction Bank, and was its firs vice-president, but after a time disposed of his stock in the enterprise.

 

On Christmas day of 1873 Mr. Stuckey was married to Miss Sarah J. Jackson, a daughter of Joel Jackson, a prominent pioneer settler who located in Jasper county in 1840. Five children, now living, have been born unto Mr. and Mrs. Stuckey: Pearl, Mary Josephine, Anna fern, Georgia Gertrude and Eugenia; and three, David Perry, Artemus Jackson and Lena, died in infancy.; and the first names is now assisting her father in the office. In his political vies Mr. Stuckey is a staunch Republican, and takes an active interest in party work. In 1894 he was the nominee for the position of county clerk, and after being elected and serving for four years he was again chosen to the office by popular ballot, so that he is now serving for the second term. he is a man of strong purpose, of decided views and of unquestioned integrity, and his upright life has not only been crowned by business success but has also gained for him the unqualified respect and confidence of his fellow men. ” (Biographical Record of Jasper County, Missouri, by Hon. Malcolm G. McGregor, 1901, p. 103-105- includes his picture.)

(History of Jasper County, Twin Grove Township:

 

p. 798).

 

“Silas A. Stuckey was born in Bedford county, PA December 16, 1850, removing with his father to Knox county, IL in 1853. He married in December 1873 to Sarah J. Jackson, a native of Jasper county, MO who was born in 1854. There is one child living, Pearl, and three dead. He, with his father, came to Jasper county in 1867, being among the oldest residents who have immigrated to the county since the civil war. For a number of years he engaged in farming, but in 1871, went in as a clerk for William Cooley in the Pioneer Grocery Store at Smithfield. In 1876, he assumed a proprietary interest in the same business, continuing until 1881, when he disposed of his interest and took an interest in mining, which he still maintains. He is at present the principal of the Smithfield schools, which are in a flourishing condition.” (History of Jasper County, Twin Grove Township, p. 827)

LeMay: Photo of Joel and Sarah included in issue (Jackson Scrapbook, 1982)

 

“Joel, first son of Samuel and Sarah Laffoon Jackson was born in their home in Franklin Township, Owen County, Indiana. He was living in an area his grandfather had settled and helped wrest from the wilderness 35 years before. In 1852, the year before Joel was born, Franklin Township was one of the more prosperous ones of Owen County with 163 polls and a valuation of lands at $77,576. Joel born 8 January 1853 grew up in a farming community where public schools were only run three months a year. The first one had begun in 1840. As a result, Joel obtained only about the equivalent of a 4th or 5th grade education.

 

Joel grew up in the heated politics of a nation headed for division. Whigs, Democrats and the new Republicans vied for the people’s political affections. After Lincoln was elected in 1860 and the Civil War began, Joel’s father Samuel enlisted in the Union army in 1864. Joel was just 11 and had to help care for his 5 younger brothers and sisters. Samuel was discharged at Nashville 27 Sept 1865 and came home to an area suffering under the strain of depressed prices and unemployment. Sam and Sarah comforted themselves in each other and their last child, Cara, born 4 Dec. 1867.

 

In 1869 the government offered Osage Indian lands in Kansas for settlement and purchase and Samuel and his young family decided to go with two of Sarah’s uncles Joseph and Jacob McIntosh to make a new beginning in Kansas plains country.

 

Samuel entered 160 acres of Osage lands about 15 miles from Cheopta, Labette County (NW1/4 Section12-T34S R19E) in 1869. (map included)

 

Kansas was not kind to the new settlers. Sarah’s uncle, Joseph McIntosh, died of pneumonia before 17 June 1879 and was buried in Ellis cemetery 1/2 mile south of Samuel’s land. Cara also died in 1870, a child of two. The worst blow came 7 February when Sarah herself died and Samuel was left with Joel 19, Nancy age 17, Mary 15, George almost 15 and Henry 11 to care for and raise.

 

Within the next four years, Nancy had married Andrew Pickett, Mary Theresa (known as Mollie) had married Samuel Newell, Joel had married Elvira Lillibridge, (Ella in the other account) and probably Samuel had returned to Owen County, Indiana, for in 1878 there he married Mary Ann (Moore) Bryant, a widow with seven children. Freedom, Indiana was the elder Jacksons’ home for the rest of their days.

 

A close eight of the Jacksons in Labette County was Charles Lillibridge. (son of Willard Stephens Lillibridge and Betsey S. Collins). His widowed mother with her children at home, Jerome and Elvira, lived not far away. Elvira was four years older than Joel, but when they married at Oswego, Kansas 6 November 1875 both listed “age 22” on the license. Perhaps Joel didn’t know then that he was marrying “an older woman”.

 

In 1876 a daughter Evelyn was born and in February 1880 a son, Gale Clifford, but eh young mother died 11 October 1881 leaving her heartbroken Joel with two babies to care for. In 1883 Evelyn died. Joel had had enough. He asked a family by the name of Rinker (Rankin in the other account) to care for his two-year old son and he left for Golden, Colorado to start a new life.

 

It is said that Joel got a job in Golden driving for a brewery because he didn’t drink. (Could this ave been Coors, the now famous Golden, Colorado brewery?)

 

Joel also worked for several Cattle companies and in 1888 he had homesteaded near Henry, Nebraska near Scottsbluff.

 

The Calvin Russell family lived near Joel. He had almost stuck Calvin with a pitchfork once when the old man had taken refuge in a haystack, but after that mishap, they had become good friends and young Rosa, though 17 years his junior, had attracted Joel’s eye. Rosa’s mother died in 1896 after a stroke had debilitated her years before. On December 23rd 1896, despite a winter storm, Joel and Rosa married (see clipping)

 

Joel and Rosa’s second family was born in the next six years: Esther in 1897, Agnes 1898 (but died after two days, premature because of the measles.), Elvin in 1900, and Sam in 1902. Their ranch was crossed by the famed Oregon Trail as it crossed into Wyoming. Travellers were often provided hospitality, and warmth pervaded their home. Rosa’s father made his home with them till his death in 1917. Joel’s father Samuel had died in Indiana 18 August 1905.

 

The winters in Nebraska were hard and cold. As early as 1907 Joel’s brother-in-law, Henry Russell suggested he move to the warm southwest for his rheumatism. By November 1918, they had decided to make the move. They went by way of west Texas so Joel could visit his brother Wesley whom he had not seen for 40 years. Rosa and Esther went by train, but Joel and his sons fixed up the car with an adjoining tent and camped along the way. As they by passed some of the towns they saw coffins stacked awaiting burial of flu victims.

 

At the border between Wyoming (a wet state, liquor-wise) and Colorado which was dry, an inspector stopped them to see if they were carrying any liquor. Joel said, ‘No, except for a little bit to use if we get the flu.’ But the inspector spied a gallon jug of motor oil they had and insisted on trying it.!

 

When they camped out near Colorado Springs, they heard the town explode with bells and whistles. It was the armistice of World War I. Elvin was particularly happy for he had passed his physical and was expecting to be called up for service any time.

 

Rosa’s photo album is full of pictures of the cousins they met in Texas, for Wes had the largest of the Jackson families.

 

The Jacksons traveled on to Mesa, Arizona, where Rosa bought 20 acres on 10 March 1919 from the D. A. Rust’s. A copy of the deed reveals that C. H. Russell, Rosa’s brother was the Notary. In the summer, Joel, Rosa and Sam went back to Nebraska to sell the ranch, while Esther went to California to work for the Newells and Elvin stayed to farm cotton. But the next year, when Joel stayed the summer, he wasn’t so pleased with the heat and he sold the land (for a profit) and bought 60 acres of grazing land in Chino Valley, about 100 miles north.

 

While they were in Chino Valley, Elvin and Esther both married. In 1827 Elvin married Rivers Copeland, daughter of a Wickenburg physician, and in 1929 Esther married James Autie LeMay, a Santa Fe Railroad clerk.

 

About 1920 Joel wrote to his son Sam: ‘Just a line to let you know I am thinking of you, more so when we hear of storms up Prescott and vicinity. I often wondered where you were when trouble on the lines comes. Well, be careful of yourself and conserve your earning for times are not getting better fast.’

 

Sam worked as a lineman for the Arizona Power Company, and Joel’s worst fears were fulfilled 22 August 1932 when in a freak accident Sam came in contact with a hot line and was electrocuted. He was engaged to Flo Moyer who grieved deeply his tragic end.

 

In 1933 the Jacksons visited in California, Oregon, and Nebraska but letters reveal that Joel was not feeling well the last part of the trip. Joel died of a stomach upset 15 March 1934, age 81.

 

Rosa stayed on in her now urban home, sharing it with her brother Lawrence who had been divorced from his wife, and her bachelor brother-in-law Henry Jackson. Henry died in 1938 and was buried in Green lawn Cemetery in Phoenix next to Joel and Sam. Rosa was visiting Ester in Prescott when on 15 July 1946 she died of heart failure caused by water on the lungs. I remember rubbing her back the night before she died to ease her suffering. It was Rosa who kept letters, clippings and was herself highly interested in the family tree whose storehouse of materials help me write this with some fullness.

 

Such is the history of Joel Jackson. If all the readers of the Scrapbook will help, I hope to write a similar summary of each of the other children of Samuel and Sarah Laffoon Jackson and also provide what biographical information I can on other descendants and lines of interest. I want to illustrate with pictures, letters and clippings. To disseminate such sources is to preserve for posterity!

We briefly noted the death of Joel Jackson last week as having occurred at Phoenix, Arizona on the 15th of this month. We have received the following more detailed facts relative to his life which we are glad to publish because of the splendid standing acquired in this valley by Mr. Jackson during his long years of residence here. He was widely known and held in utmost respect by all who knew him. Mr. Jackson visited in the valley just summer and many old friends who then met him again did not realize that he was in a serious state of health. Live trouble was the cause of his final illness which did not become critical until the last few months before he was finally claimed by death.

 

Joel Jackson was born in Freedom, Indiana on January 8, 1853, and departed this life on March 15, 1934, thus being age 81 years 2 months, 7 days. He removed with his parents in early youth to Kansas. In 1875 he married Ella Lillibridge, who passed away four years later. To this union were born two children, a boy and a girl, the latter passing away in childhood. In 1883 he went to Golden, Colo. where he was employed for several years until he came to this section of Western Nebraska in 1888. He filed and proved up on a preemption claim near the present site of Morrill, after which he removed to the south side of the river, homesteading south of Henry, where the family lived for about twenty-five years. On December 23, 1896, he married Miss Rosa E. Russel, daughter of Calvin W. Russell, and to this union four children were born, a daughter passing away in infancy, and Sam, the youngest son, about one year ago.

 

In 1918, the family removed to Arizona, spending ten years in the Little Chino Valley, then removing again to a small tract adjacent to the city of Phoenix, which was the family home at the time of his death. Mr. Jackson was a member of the Christian church at Prescott, Arizona.

 

His death is ___ by his widow, one son, Elwin R. Jackson, Phoenix, and one daughter, Mrs. J. A. Lemay, William, Ariz.”

Burial is to follow in Phoenix, the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joel Jackson.

 

Jackson had hold of a guy wire when is came in contact with a 44,000 volt line. Death practically was instantaneous because his heart action was stopped immediately and could not be stimulated again through artificial resuscitation was attempted for an hour or more by his co-workers on the job.

 

He was born August 11, 1902, in Caldwell, Nebr. about seven years ago obtained his first employment with the power company “on the rim” as employee call it, meaning in one of the Verde Valley hydro plants.
