William Henry Jackson was born June 17th, 1841, in the state of Indiana, and died January 30th, 1916, at the age of 71 years, 7 months and 13 days.
At the age of 15 years he moved with his parents to Sauk County, Wisconsin, and at the age of 24 years he was united in marriage to Miss Ellen Williams, of Wisconsin, who preceded him ten years ago. To this union three children wee born-- two daughters and one son, one daughter having preceded him 17 years ago, leaving one son, one daughter and ten grand-children and six great grandchildren to mourn his departure.
In his twenty-first year he enlisted in the Union army, in the 12th Wisconsin Volunteer Regiment, in which he served until the close of the war. In 1878 he removed with his family to Iowa, and in 1885, he removed to Missouri, where he resided until his death.
He was at peace with God and all the world. While he was not an active member of any church he lived a true Christian life, and the last words he said was he was not afraid, and he passed away in peace.
