James M. Jackson

Death of James M. Jackson

James M. Jackson, one of Morrisville's well known, and highly respected citizens, died at his home on Summer Street last Wednesday night at about eight o'clock after a long illness of heart disease and complications. He had been in ill health for several years, and had been confined to the home several months, his case having been considered hopeless for two weeks previous to his death.

Funeral services were held at the Congregational Church last Friday afternoon, Rev. C. C. St. Clare officiating, assisted by Rev. P.A. Smith and Otto S. Raspe. The services were in charge of the Masonic Order of this town, the members of the Mt. Vernon Lodge F&AM and Tucker Chapter, R.A.M., of which lodges the deceased was an honored member, attending in a body, and conducting the impressive Masonic burial service. Music was furnished by a male quartette, composed of F. G. Fleetwood, Rev. C. C. St. Clare, A. J. Moore and A. N. Camp. The bearers were E. W. Webster, W. F. Sherman, C. B. Greene, and C. A. Gile. Mrs. G. W. Hendee presided at the organ. Interment was at Riverbank Cemetery in Stowe, beside the remains of his late wife. Among those from out of town to attend the funeral were Harry Jenny and family of Stowe, J. Willis Jackson and wife and Miss Georgia Jackson, of Woodsville, N.H., Walter Strong and wife of Hyde Park, and Mrs. Ethel Holbrook of Greensboro.

The deceased was born in Bromme, Quebec, 73 years ago last November, where he resided until early manhood when he came to Lamoille County, where he has since lived. He was, for many years, a resident of Stowe, moving his family to Morrisville about 22 years ago. He served three years in the Civil War, having been 1st Sergeant in Company D., 5th Vermont Vol., in which he engaged in several important battles. In 1869 he married Miss Lucia Jenny of Stowe, who died, May 2, 1889. Of this union five children survive, three sons and two daughters, Walter K. Jackson, and Dr. Frank A. Jackson, of this place, J. Willis Jackson and Miss Georgianna Jackson, Of Woodsville, N.H., and Mrs. W. D. Strong of Hyde Park. Mr. Jackson is also survived by three sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Ira Marshall and Mrs. Helen Huse, of this place, Mrs. N. P. Emerson of Sutton, P.Q., George W. Jackson of Waterbury, Conn., and John Jackson of California.
