1870 Census Bethel, Bath Co., Kentucky Family 60; Post Office Isaac Smith 38 M B Common laborer KY Elizabeth Smith 21 F B Keeping house KY Sarah Smith 3 F B KY C Emmons 2 F M KY W. D. Jackson 24 M W Dry goods merchant 3000RE 2000PP KY(Wm. David) Lucy Jackson 26 F W Keeping House KY Frances Jackson 4 F W KY Thomas Jackson 2 M W KY Puzzlement: did the enumerator make an error in numbering the families? W. D. and Lucy are enumerated as being in the hh of Isaac Smith, a black man. Possible but questionable. And on the other side of W. D. and Lucy is another black family headed by Jane Jackson. Some light on the question: In the 1850 Federal Slave Schedule, William's mother, Frances Tackett Jackson had five slaves; one of only two Jacksons in Bath County to have slaves. This 1870 census is the first census where blacks were enumerated along with the whites and not on the slave schedule. Now there may still be a story as to why W. D. and Lucy were listed as living in the household of Isaac Smith. And the next household to be enumerated is Jane Jackson, a black. These are very likely former slaves and it appears they must have had a very good relationship. Just for the record, I will include Jane's record here: 1870 Census Bethel Twp., Bath Co., Kentucky Family 61; Post Office Jackson, Jane 45 F B Domestic KY Cary, no given name entered 90 M B KY Jones, Polk 5 M B KY Stone, Enos 16 M M Clerk in Store KY

Mr. W. D. Jackson died at his home in Stanton last Friday after suffering for more than a year with stomach and heart trouble. The remains were interred in the cemetery at Winchester. Deceased leaves a wife, two children and a brother, Mr. Romulus Jackson, of Stanton, to mourn their loss. Mr. Jackson was a model citizen, a kind husband and father and was well liked by all who knew him. He bore his afflictions without a murmur, and was fully resigned to his fate, always trusting in Jesus. He was born in Bath county, Ky., June 6, 1846. He entered the Confederate army when a boy and served four years, spending one year in Camp Chase. He studied law with Judge Holt at Mt. Sterling and began to practice his profession at Stanton in 1875. At the time of his death he was chairman of the Powell County Democratic Committee.
