Edgar Thomas Jackson, was born on the home place, Aug. 3, 1868, and received his early education in the district schools and in the Burlington high school. After leaving high school, he spent a term in the Dixon Business College, at Dixon, Ill. Most of his time there was given to the study of telegraphy. After attaining a mastery of this profession he secured a position as operator and station agent for the Chicago & Northwestern Railway, at Kamrar, Hamilton county, Iowa. This position he filled very satisfactorily for two and a half years. At the end of this time his father needed his assistance so greatly that he returned to the home place and took the supervision of the farm. At this work he has been very successful, making a specialty of stockraising, raising high-grade cattle and hogs, and some sheep, besides carrying on general farming.

On Sept. 16, 1903, E. T. Jackson was united in marriage to Miss Emma Jackson, the daughter of William and Adeline (Wassom) Jackson, of this township. Mr. and Mrs. William Jackson came from Pennsylvania, and have always followed the business of farming.
