N.M. JACKSON: At his home in Morrison, Ill., April 20, 1891, N.M. Jackson, aged 87 years and 11 months. Mr.Jackson was born in Morris County, New Jersey, May 20, 1803. At the age of two and a half years his parents removed to near Pittsburgh, Pa., where the family resided until his tenth year, when they again moved westward to Knox County, Ohio. Here he resided until 1854. In 1825, he was united in marriage to Miss Emily Allen, who died about 1830. In 1836 he was married to Miss Harriet Nightseer, with whom he traveled life's pathway for forty-four years, when, in 1880, she laid down the cares of earth and passed to her final rest. Of six children three sons are now living; B. K. Jackson of Washington, A. J. Jackson of this city, and J. N. Jackson of Unionville. In 1882 he married Mrs. Sarah McGrew of Dewitt, Iowa, who survives him. He removed with his family to Logan Co., Ill., in the fall of 1854, and in January 1855 came to Mt. Pleasant township, locating on a farm adjoining Morrison. He followed the business of farming until about the year 1869, when he moved into the city, where he resided until his death. In 1870 he was elected Mayor of Morrison, and served one year. He was one of the twenty-two members who organized the Presbyterian church of this city at Unionville, March 28, 1855, and was elected at that time as one of two elders of the church, and exercised the functions of the office until failing health prevented. Through all his years in this community he led a quiet, unostentatious and christian life, and has gone to his grave leaving an unsullied name, honored and respected by all. The funeral services were held at the family residence, Rev. J.W. Skinner officiating. Obituary copied from Genealogy Trails:
