Obituary of

Franklin S. JACKSON

The Dillon Herald, Dillon, South Carolina
December 6, 1917

Mr. Frank S. Jackson, one of Dillon's oldest and most respected citizens, died at his home on West Main Street Monday morning. Mr. Jackson had been in ill health for several months but his condition did not become serious until two weeks ago, the cause of his death resulting from valvular heart trouble.

Mr. Jackson was in his 62nd year. He was born near Catfish but moved to Dillon about 25 years ago, being one of the town's first settlers. He was an honorable, up right, Christian gentleman who was held in high esteem by all who knew him. Mr. Jackson never sought public office but he was twice elected a member of the city council and while serving in this capacity discharged his duties with earnestness and efficiency.

Mr. Jackson is survived by his wife, who was Miss Annie Whittington, and the following children: Mrs. A.A. Hinson and Miss Ruth Jackson.

The interment was made at Mt. Holly Cemetery Tuesday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. M.L. Banks.
