Death of Mrs. Jackson.

A Pioneer Citizen Goes To Join The Majority.

Mrs. Zimri W. Jackson died at the home of her son, Mr. Geo. M. Jackson, a few miles north of Cartersville, last Thursday night, after an illness of several months duration, of paralysis.

She was the wife of Mr. Zimri Jackson, who for many years, was a leading and popular citizen of this county, and who preceded her to the grave about four years ago.

She was born in Pickens county, S. C., in 1825, and at the time of her death was seventy-one years old. She was married to Mr. Zimri Jackson in 1849, and was the mother of five sons, Mr. G. M. Jackson, of this city, W. A. and Ed Jackson, of this county, J. W. Jackson, of Texas, and T. A. Jackson, of LaFayette, Ga.

Mrs. Jackson was a noble wife and mother and was ever a strong arm to her husband and a loving, kind and affectionate mother to the children. She was a consistent member of the Methodist church for more than fifty years, and was ever ready to lend a helping hand in all good work.

She was buried at Cassville Saturday morning and the funeral service was conducted by Rev. W. T. Bell, assisted by Dr. W. H. Felton.

[Per Mrs. Jackson's tombstone in Cassville Cemetery, her first name was Ruth]
