Biography

According to the Quaker Cane Creek meeting records, LEVI JACKSON was born the 3rd day of the 1st month 1770 to ISAAC JACKSON and MARY PEARSON JACKSON.[1]

The Jacksons were all members of the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting of the Quaker Church. The Cane Creek Monthly Meeting was established 7 October 1751 (1751, 10, 7) and was located on stream Cane Creek in the Central part of Orange County (now Alamance County), North Carolina. They moved to South Carolina; then to Jefferson County, Georgia by 1802; to Conecuh County, Alabama in 1818.

Levi Jackson served as a Private in Captain Thomas Figures' Company of the Alabama Territory Milita in the Seminole Indian War from 1 April - 30 June 1818. Quaker records show him "disowned" 26 June 1819 (1819, 6, 26), probably for "bearing arms" or " breaking away from the Quaker teachings." At this time, Levi embraced the Baptist faith. He helped establish the Catawaba Springs Baptist Church, located in Escambia County, Alabama.
