The Sam Jackson Cemetery is unmapped because the exact location cannot be determined as of this time (1 Feb 2011)It is laced with fieldstones without inscriptions marking the head of graves of persons unknown.
What is known is the Sam Jackson Cemetery is located across from Cletus White's house on Hulsey's Branch Road on a hill. It is grown up in brush, hard to find and accss I went with other parties to find it once, but gave out without success. Others since have been successful in finding it, but were unable to add any more conclusions as to who may be interred there. Several field rocks are still present. The only rock with an inscription has Nichles Jackson on it. He would have been born before 1797. The Giles county cemetery book has this cemetery listed as Samuel Jackson Cemetery.
Nicholas Jackson lived there and it is believed a lot of his descendants are buried there.
Nick's grandson, Samuel Andrew "Sam" Jackson 1847-1902, lived there when he was killed and this cemetery is named after him. (See Samuel Andrew Jackson). Sam was buried in the Minor Hill Cemetery.
I've been told James Washing Balch was buried in the Nick Jackson cemetery too. I've wondered why, since he did not live near there.
I wish there was a way we could find out who is buried there.
The Jackson of the other Jackson Cemetery northeast of here a bit is a younger brother of this Nicholas Jackson buried here. His name and listing: JACKSON, Barrigton, 20 Dec 1797 - 17 Sep 1868.
