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.

CATAWBA SPRINGS BAPTIST CHURCH

The family of Levi Jackson, who migrated to this area from South Carolina, settled in here in 1818. The Jackson family has played an important role in the history of the Catawba Springs Church and there are descendants of this family still in this area today.

After serving in the Mexican War, Levi Jackson died on his way to New Orleans.

There were two catalpa trees planted in the church yard in his memory.

why would he be disowned at Spring MM in Alamance NC in 1819 if he was out west, wouldnt his children have been recorded at some MM then by the quakers?

Also I keep seeing him dying in Robertson co TX in 1840 like on here, yet his son Josiahs profile states "in 1849, the Jackson's moved to Robertson Co. Texas, with his younger brother, Allen Jackson, and their father, Levi Jackson. In 1859, Josiah and Allen moved their families to Rapides Parish, Louisiana where they resided until their death." so then Levi died aft 1849?
