      Great-Grandfather Jackson's name was Ruben - His eldest of 5 sons was also named Ruben. All large - over 6 feet tall and all over 200 pounds. These boys were by his first wife. They were all strong, athletic + The "Jackson Boys" usually carried off all prizes at "Log Rollings", shootings and other contests of strength and skill.

      Great-Grandfather (Ruben) was married a second time and to this union wer born Samuel and Robert W. (My Grandfather) and a daughter Mary.

      Their mother died when they were very young (Grandfather about 6 or 8 years old) - when his father died - Uncle Same went to live with a man by the name of Allen. A fine ? and millright for his day - Uncle Sam became a miller Came here (Neosho) just a close of Civil War and operated the brick mill - on North (Mill St) now College. Also at a later time operated a mill on Hickory Creek about 2-mi. S.E. or town (known as West's + later (now) as Zimmerman's Mill). He later went to Caverna - MO + operated a mill for a number of years, until his death.

      My Grandfather Robt.W. (It is not known with whom he went to live after his fathers death - unless an older half brother.

      He learned the brick mason trade. He evidently followed his trade from place to place and traveled over several counties in Tennessee. He would work a while in one community + then go to amother. He talked with the people with whom he stayed while working. Had a wonderful memory + knew the family history of ever family. He was a fine vocalist + taught "singing school" wherever he went in his work travels. Could sing well to his dying day.

      He was jolly, loved to laugh + did.

      He was married to Lucy Everitt. Had four sons John, Robert, Sam + George + 1-daughter Lucy. My father George was about 6 years old when his father came to Neosho. A few years after the close of the Civil War + after his Uncle Sam had been here some 5 or 6 years. They came here by ox team via Cape Girardea, Rolla + Springfield. Their home was near Gardner Sto - near Union City in Obion Co. Tenn. where their family at one time owned a large amount of good land.

      My father, George W. (Washington) began work when about 14 years old for Uncle Sam in the brick mill. Had very little chance to go to school but like his father was a good singer. Played bass drum in town band and was ? ?. He lived + worked here (Neosho- balance of his life. He wa married May 1, 1882 to Miss Ida V. Boyd (My mother) They had 7-children - Floyd, Jessie, Everitt, Wayne, Reginald, Percy + Pauline. 5 boys - 2 girls. I am oldest, will be 59 - June 17, 1942. All children + both parents living at this time.

      As I remember by Grandfather's last words the night he died, it ran something like this prayer-

      "O God a father to them be
      and keep them from all harm.
      May they live to worship (or cherish) Thee
      and dwell among thy charm"

      [signed]

      Talking to Lonnie Jackson - September 23, 1938

      Lonnie says that his father Samuel and my grandfather Robert W. were brothers and sons of one Ruben Jackson. They had six half brothers, one of whose name was also Ruben. All large men, Ruben was the smallest of the brothers, standing 6 foot 3 inches in sock feet

      Samuel and Robert
      These brothers grew to manhood in Obion County, Tennessee, around Union City and Gardner Station. Samuel emigrated to Southwest Misouri, 1865. Robert came to Missouri on 1/17/76. They both settled in Neosho, Robert W. had three sons all born in Tennessee who came with him to Neosho, Robert I., Samuel and George W. George W. my father was the youngest and was about 6 or 7 years old when they came to Neosho. He married Ida V. Boyd May 1, 1882, to them were born seven children as follows: Floyd M., Jessie Mae, Everett B. George Wayne, Reginald D., Percy R., and Pauline. All seven children living at this time, I was 55 years of age last June 17, 1938.

      My grandfather, Robert W. and his brother Samuel said they were second cousins of Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson and that they belonged to the Virginia branch of the Jackson family. My grandfather Robert W. was married to Lucy Everett in Tennessee but she died before they came to Missouri.
