Mr. J. Knox Jackson Dead.
After a lingering illness, Mr. J. Knox Jackson died on the afternoon
of the 3rd instant, and was buried at Pleasant Grove church on the Monday following,
Rev. W. C. Wallace, officiating. Mr. Jackson was 66 years old and leaves a widow,
five sons and one daughter. He was a good man, highly respected by his neighbors,
and his death deprives his community of one of its best citizens and oldest landmarks.
Mr. Jackson was one the six Jackson brothers who served so gallantly throughout the
civil war, and leaves behind him a record for bravery that is not surpassed of any
of the followers of Lee. He had many friends in the county who will be pained to hear
of his death.
