BELLOWS FALLS, OCT 2, ---The body of M. D. Jackson was brought home yesterday from Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, where he died yesterday following a surgical operation. The funeral will be held in the home, 15 Atkinson Street, this afternoon at 2. Rev. L. F. Leavitt, pastor of the Universalist Church officiating. Mr. Jackson was a Knight Templar, and the rights of that order will be conducted.

Marshall D. Jackson was born in Tampico, Mex., early in the 40's, but soon after his birth his parents returned with him to their home in Houston, Tex, where he lived until their death some five years later. He was then brought to Saxtons River, Vt., and lived in the family of the late Dr. Edward Campbell until his early manhood, when he, with the late John Campbell returned to Houston. There he joined the Texas Rangers, and when with them were conscripted into the confederate service when the war broke out. His sympathies being with the Union, while with the regiment on the frontier, escaped into Mexico. Thence, after some adventures he made his way back to Vermont.

Mr. Jackson leaves a wife and one daughter, Miss Anna H. Jackson, teacher of music in the public schools of Bellows Falls, and Newport, N.H., two sons, Marcus A., a druggist at Pittsfield, Mass., and Raymond, a pupil in the public schools.
