Death of Mrs. Henry Jackson

Funeral services for Mrs. Henry Jackson were conducted at the home on Thursday morning, April 8, at ten o'clock, by her pastor, Dr. J. A. Ward. A portion of her favorite passage of Scripture, John, fourteenth chapter, was read and two of her favorite songs; "Safe in The Arms of Jesus" and "There's a Land That is Fairer Than Day." were sung. The pallbearers and flower girls were selected from her grandchildren.

Mrs. Jackson's funeral was the third to be conducted in this home in less than one year. Her husband's funeral was on April 16, 1936, and her son's Thurman on February 1, 1937.

Mr. and Mrs. Jackson lived together to "ripe old age". At his death Mr. Jackson was 82, and Mrs. Jackson was 78. They leave behind tem 7 children, 37 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

Those who knew Mrs. Jackson cherish her memory and sympathize with the living.

* The obituary for her husband gives her name as Deletha. However the survey of the Hamilton Cemetery has Tellitha Jackson - born 3-30-1858 - died 4-6-1937.
