Notes from the book "Forks of Elkhorn Church":
Page 23 lists Francis Jackson as one of several men who purchased (in 1794) for five shillings "a certain lot of land containing one acre, whereon the meeting house now stands, known by the name of Mongomer Meeting house." As Samuel Montgomery sold the property, the word Montgomer may have been a typing error. On the other hand, on the previous page, the church was originally named Mount Gomer Baptist church (organized July 24, 1790). "In 1801 the name was changed to 'Mount Pleasant,' and under this name it continued to bless the community until sometime within the present decade."

Francis is listed as a Revolutionary Soldier receiving a pension in Woodford County.
