Location: Obion county Tennessee and Mississippi county Missouri
Surnames/tags: Jackson Obion county Tennessee
I'm trying to locate the family of James T Jackson who with his wife Ola (Baker) Jackson farmed in Obion county until he lost the farm in 1921. He was married twice, the first ending in divorce and the second to Viola (Ola) Baker in Mississippi county Missouri in 1900. He was a Missionary Baptist preacher but was originally Primitive Baptist. He shot himself sometime after losing his farm when my mother was about 2. His widow and her children moved to Granite City Illinois when her eldest son Raymond took a job in the steel mills there. I was told he died in Tennessee but have no record of his death or burial location. I have hit a brick wall and would appreciate any information on James or any possible relatives still living in Obion county.
