The following from the Belle Plaine Herald, Belle Plaine, Minnesota, is an eloquent tribute to a former citizen of the county. Mr. Jackson was a brother of Mrs. Margaret
Mr. Jackson was a brother of Mrs. Margaret Miller, of this town;Jackson-died at his residence in Blakeley Township, on Thursday evening March 14, Simon Jackson, of apoplexy, in the 66th year of his age.
Mr. Jackson, was one of those conscientious, upright men, who made friends with all whom he had dealings with.
He was doing his chores as well as ever up to nine o'clock in the morning on the day of his death, and by 7 o'clock in the evening he was dead.
Simon Jackson was born in Liddledale, Roxburyshire, Scotland, September 23, 1829. He came to Andes, New York, in 1840, where he was married to Betsy Liddle, April 6, 1862 and removed to Minnesota in the spring of 1880 where he has since resided. In the year 1888 he united with the Presbyterian church and became ruling member in the fall of 1891.
He leaves behind him an invalid wife who will miss his tender, gentle care. Thirty-three years they have walked hand in hand down the pathway of life. They have been each other's support, but he has gone on before to await her in that Blessed Land of Rest. He was a kind and loving father and leaves behind him four children to mourn his loss.
