Obituary of

Sidney Warren JACKSON

The Dillon Herald, Dillon, South Carolina
October 15, 1925

The death of Mr. Sidney Warren Jackson last Thursday night, while not entirely unexpected in view of his feebleness for the last few years and his recent series of illnesses, each leaving him less sturdy, brought grief to a large circle of friends of Mr. Jackson and his family here.

Mr. Jackson was 72 years of age and has resided in Dillon since 1897 when he moved here from his birthplace near Latta. For many years he was a faithful member of the Catfish Baptist Church of which his friend, the late Dr. Joel I. Allen was pastor. At the time of his death his membership was in the Dillon Baptist Church.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. W.C. Allen, pastor of the deceased, on Sunday afternoon, the interment taking place at Riverside cemetery. All of Mr. Jackson's children arrived here in time to join the large cortege of sorrowing friends and relatives that followed to his last resting place to pay their final tribute of respect to the departed. A wealth of beautiful floral tributes were placed on the grave.

He is survived by his widow who before marriage was Mrs. Alice Hayes, one son, Liston Jackson of Fort Worth, Texas, and the following daughters: Mrs. L.F. DeWitt of Columbia; Mrs. George H. McLeod of New York; Mrs. Sam R. Turner of Hamlet; Mrs. Charles C. Haynes of Durham, N.C.; Miss Lacy Jackson who resides with the family here.
