Dr. J. D. Jackson, Dean of County Doctors, Dies at Age of 93

Dr. John D. Jackson, oldest member of the medical profession in Fayette county, died at 7:35 o'clock Sunday morning at his home at 210 East Crawford avenue. He was 93 last December 14.
Dr. Jackson had been housed since the day of the November 3 election last fall. He walked to the Fourth Ward polls diagonally across the street from his home and cast his vote. He did not rise the next day and had been bed-fast since.
Besides his widow, Mrs. Maude Reece Jackson, he is survived by a son, First Sergeant John Reece Jackson, who is with the armed forces on Okinawa. The sergeant has been in the service three and a half years. He is looking forward to an early discharge.
The body is at the Charles A. McCormick funeral home where the last rites will be conducted at 2:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Burial will be in Green Ridge Memorial Park at Pennsville. Rev. Harry R. Roach of the First Presbyterian Church will officiate.
Born at Brownsville December 14, 1852, he practiced three or four years in West Virginia and came to Connellsville in 1882, after six month at Dunbar. He had been a resident of Conellsville ever since, though practically retired from his profession the last 14 years. In more than 50 years of active practice his childbirth cases ran well into the thousands.
Dr. Jackson studied medicine under his father, Dr. Isaac Jackson, who practiced at Brownsville for 60 years. After having learned the rudiments he was licensed under the West Virginia laws in 1879, 67 years ago. Before coming to Dunbar and then Connellsville, he took a course at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, and was admitted to practice in Pennsylvania.
He was first located in a room south of where Paul H. Beighley's store now is, in North Pittsburg street, later moving to the old Morton building at Pittsburg street and Grape alley, where he practiced for 25 years. He then moved to East Crawford avenue, where his home is now located and where he practiced until his retirement in 1932.
He was the first doctor in this city to own a horse and buggy and also owned some of the finest track animals ever brought to Fayette county.
Dr. Jackson was the originator of the former Citizens National Bank and was a stockholder and one of its first directors. He was the first physician appointed to the staff of the old Cottage State Hospital, predecessor of Connellsville State.
Always fond of the out-of-doors, he was of sturdy physique and with the exception of his last illness, had very few days of illness in his long career.
He was a Democrat in politics and said he "never missed an election". His first vote in a presidential election was cast for Horace Greeley in 1872. He voted for the late Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932--but was not for him either for a second, third or fourth term. Dr. Jackson's licensing in the medical profession was contemporary with the founding the The Weekly Courier--called the Keystone Courier then--by the late Henry P. Snyder, July 17, 1879.
