The second son of William and Euphemia (Jackson) Braden, Jackson Braden moved as a child with his parents from PA to Scott Co., KY. In that KY location, his name appeared on the tax rolls of that place in 1821 and 1822, just before he made a final move north to Decatur Co., IN. In the summer of 1824, Jackson purchased 160 acres of fertile Clay Twp. soil. Six months later, on Dec. 26, he married Nancy Lemasters, who also was a recent arrival from KY.
Jackson managed his farm so successfully that he was able to increase his land holdings through the purchasing and selling, for a fair profit, acreage both in Clay Twp., as well as within the city of Greensburg.
The closeness of Jackson to his brother Walter is seen not only in their allied farming and business pursuits, but also in the nearly identical homesteads built on their neighboring farms. The two brick homes stood across the farmland from one another for many, many years, and yet, as the house of Walter was being razed in the late 1960s, a large section of Jackson's old home collapsed on the very same day.
Jackson and Nancy Braden parented nine daughters and four sons: viz, Euphemia, Elizabeth, Jane, Rebecca, Reuben, William, Marietta, Seth, James L., Sarah E., Permelia, Mahala and Ella.
