Obituary contributed by Dr. Anthony Troha: From "The Iron Era", Saturday, February 11, 1888 (Volume XVIII, Number 11) Page 2, Column 4: "SUCCASUNNA ... The funeral for our late Assessor, Mr. Jackson, took place here on Wednesday."

Page 3, Column 3: "Death of Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson, aged about 55 years, a well-known citizen of Drakesville, died at his home in that place last Sunday. Owing to a complication of troubles Mr. Jackson had not been in good health for some years, and recently contracted a severe cold, which resulted in his death. He was for many years a blacksmith of the place and was noted for his skill as a mechanic, but when his health began to fail him he retired from his work. He was an ardent Democrat in politics and for six years past had filled the office of Assessor of Roxbury township very acceptably. He was an upright citizen and greatly esteemed in the community. To mourn his loss he leaves a widow and six grown up children, two sons and four daughters. Another son was killed in the explosion at the Forcite Powder works. He was a member of Acacia Lodge, A. F. and A. M., of Dover, and his burial on Wednesday was attended with Masonic ceremonies."

Dr. Troha continues: "I have searched for a newspaper account about the explosion that claimed the life of his son, but I have not found it yet. The Forcite Powder Works began business in July of 1883, so I will need to comb each issue of "The Iron Era" between then and when Mr. Andrew Jackson died in order to find it [assuming that it is even legible]."
