John R. Jackson

Query posted November 12, 2003

The name listed in the Evergreen Cemetery as JOHN R. JOHNSON is incorrect.   It should read JOHN R. JACKSON. Check the stone. John R. Jackson was a former Miss. state senator, father of Lester Harmon by John's first wife (name unknown); John's 2nd wife was Martha "Mattie" Bryant McCaslin Bryant (b. in Fayette  Co. TN). I am Mattie B. Jackson grand nephew. I spent several summers in  N. Carrollton in the late 1940''s at Aunt Mattie's home. I have pictures of  her at this house. Please correct this error in the records. Thank you very  much, Hohjr.
