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.
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.
