Shared note
Simon Jackson was a tobacco farmer. I corresponded with Charles Samuel McGraw who was a grandson of Samuel Jackson, a son of Simon Jackson and Idney Hawkins Jackson. Samuel Jackson was the brother of John W. Jackson. Mr. McGraw, who was born in 1906, lived with Samuel Jackson for quite some time and had many memories of Samuel Jackson's stories of the family. The following are excerpts from his letters to me: Sept. 1, 1982; I have not heard from any of the Jackson family for 40 years until I heard from Mrs. Wright and now you. Grandpa Samuel Jackson raised me in later years, before he died in 1922, he never contacted any of his people and none came to see us. always glad to hear from any of the Jackson relatives. Sept. 18 1982: I do not know much about my ancestors, or the Jackson descendents, what I know i will try to tell what I know about Grandpa. He had four children, Hansen, John, Elizabeth and Margaret (my mother). I think they all are deceased now. Elizabeth married Robert early at Woodfield, they had tow boys, both are dead. Grandpa Samuel has a small farm at Majorsville, West Virginia where I was born near it. I think I was born in Pennsylvania. Mother came home with me and my two sisters, Grandpa had a farm a year after he moved there he but up the farm to buy a stud horse, hoping the he could have enough foals to colts bort to pay off the debt, as he was to receive $50.00 per colt, but the horse was a poor producer of colts. He had to sell the farm to pay for the horse for he pain $2,000.00 for him. He never owned another piece of property after that, but moved to one place to another working on share cropping. Grandpa's younger brother, Peter had one girl living in Woodsfield. He died in the 's at 103 years old. Grandpa worked on the school grounds of Elm Grove Catholic School when I attended school there. Grandpa was a mountaineer. he was religious when he was young. I never knew much about him when he was young. He only had a poor education, as he told me that they would lock the school door, and he would go out the window. Great-Grandpa Simon figured him the black sheep of the family, and when he lived never seen Grandpa until he was dying. Even when he was dying, wanted to get out of bed and fight him. He died in 1909. Grandpa Sam had one of his brothers who was a minister who ran off with another man's wife. After that he gave up all his religion and he would not have a minister to preach his last service at his grave. Yes, in the years I remember him, he was a good dirt farmer, hard worker, liked his drink and women, his last wife was Ellen Hoffs who raised me. Sept. 24, 1982: I don't know where his descendents are. There are no grave markers on any of my people. But, there are markers on the little Jacksons graves and on Jackson's Ridge, south of Woodsfield, but the graves are neglected. The Ridge, where it is on Jackson Ridge, it was named after Great-grandfather Simon. There are none of the Jacksons left at Woodsfield now. I do not know why for sure Grandpa didn't get along with his father, but he never wrote to us, and Grandpa would not write to him. Great-grandpa Simon had four boys in the Union Army. Samuel had the typhoid fever and was not able to go. him and Great-grandpa had to run the farm. Simon was a very bitter about the "Government taking all my sons", I think here during the time when the sons were away, was when Grandpa left home, when he was able to leave. I don't think he ever went back to the farm after that. The other boys worked the farm with Simon, but he was a tough master to get along with, I guess. All the boys were married and away by 1875. There was only one that wrote to Grandpa, that was Joshua. He was the richest of the boys. He lived in Antrim County, Michigan in the summer and in Florida in the winter. He died in 1916. Never heard from any of his family or how many children he had. For years I had to write for Grandpa, as his eyes were not so good in the later days. He had very little religion in later years.
