A drawing or survey of the original gravesite has been found. This drawing dated Sept 3, 1921, was prepared before the gravestones were removed. It is labeled "Jackson Cemetery, Clarksburg" but that is not entirely accurate. This cemetery is not in Clarksburg; rather this is a family plot near Mount Clare and should not be confused with the historic Jackson Cemetery on Pike Street in Clarksburg. The drawing shows the layout of the family burial plot located on Edward Jackson's home farm about one mile south of Mount Clare in Harrison County, West Virginia. The following folks are buried there; the years of birth and death are added from research as there are no stones indicating dates.

Edward Jackson 1741-1807
Edward's son Stephen Jackson 1764-1847
Stephen's wife Elizabeth Pomeroy Jackson 1765-1850
