Jackson migrated to the Indian Territory on the Trail of Tears as did his later wife, Sallie. His father settled in an area of what is now Benton County, Arkansas with Jackson moving to Delaware County, Oklahoma as he grew older.
Jackson served in the Civil War enlisted in the Union cause in Company L, 3rd Indian Home Guard Infantry, on 7/11/1862. This unit was subordinate to the US Kansas Infantry. He was discharged at Ft. Gibson on 5/31/1865. He served with his friend Thomas Muskrat who stated on Jackson's service pension application that Jackson was "an able bodied man when he enlisted, but was sickly with a cough and with a pain in his brist (breast) when discharged."
Jackson and Sallie are buried in what is now called the Sallie England Cemetery. It is located behind an old barn in a grove of trees on the farm of Bob & Julie Roberts. There are four headstones for five graves: Sallie, Jackson (whose stone erroneously has his name spelled Jackinson), and unmarked rectangular stone that is broken and one for two children. The children's stone is an obelisk and bears the name Wilson England age 1 year, 1 month and 1889. The other side of the stone states an unnamed infant was buried there and the date 1/16/1891. The cemetery is on land that was part of the original US Government allotment given to Sallie and her family after their arrival in Indian Territory from the forced migration form the Old Cherokee Nation.
