In Memory of Mrs. Martha E. Jackson.

Died, at Kingston, Ga., on March 23d, last in her 82d year, Mrs. Martha E. Jackson, wife of Mr. John E. Jackson, deceased of Greene county, Georgia.  Mrs. Jackson was born in Green county October 4, 1818, united early in life with the Smyrna Baptist church, at Siloam, Greene county, Georgia.  Afterwards by letter she joined the Greensboro Baptist church, where her membership continued for twenty-five years.  Later in life she was a member of Macedonia Baptist church, near Watson’s Springs, and about eight or ten miles from Maxeys, Ga.  In 1892 she removed to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Dr. C. H. Mayson, at Kingston, where she died.

Mrs. Jackson was an older sister of the late Chas. A. Davis and Mrs. Fannie Stocks, of Greensboro.  Her sister, Mrs. L. H. Bowen, of Greensboro, once missionary to Africa and to South America, still survives her.  Also a younger sister, Mrs. Cornelia Preston, living in Texas.  Mrs. Jackson leaves three daughters.  They are Mrs. Mayson, of Kingston; Mrs. Thos. S. Miller and Mrs. Winfield, of near Maxeys; also two sons, Mr. John E. Jackson, of Emanuel county, and Mr. Geo. A. Jackson, of Walton county, Georgia.  Her funeral services were conducted in Greensboro March 24th, last, by Pastor Bennett, of Greensboro Baptist church, and her body lies beside her honored husband in the Greensboro cemetery.  Like her sisters, Mrs. Stocks, Mrs. Bowen and Mrs. Preston, she was a most consecrated Christian, ever devoted to the Lord’s cause.  She gave regularly and liberally to the spread of the gospel and the Master’s work.  As a parent always loving and indulgent, her name is held in sweetest reverence by her five sorrowing children.  She loved God’s word and was faithful to her vows as a Christian.  The word was better that she lived in it, and she leaves an example that her children, relatives and friends may emulate.  God grant that we may be united with her in the Heavenly Home.

These words are written in loving remembrance of Mrs. Jackson by her
Devoted Nephew,
Chas. A. Davis
Atlanta, Ga., April 7, 1900.
