Honorable Grant Jackson

The genealogy of Jackson family shows a long line of southern ancestors. Patriotism was evinced in the participation in the numerous wars of the nation's earlier history. During the war of 1812, Robert Jackson was commissioned a company that brought honor to their native commonwealth of Tennessee, by gallant service. A grandson of Captain Jackson, Major William Jackson, lived in Missouri at the time of the Civil War and helped to save that state to the Union, notwithstanding the fact that his cousin, the then Governor, called together a constitutional convention for the purpose of passing a secession ordinance. With the courage of convictions the Major assisted in deposing the state officers and electing officers loyal to the Union. His service at the front lasted throughout the entire war and brought him honor as an officer. Shortly after the close of the conflict he moved to California and settled at Petaluma, Sonoma County, where of his union with Miss Mary C. Francis there was born a son, Grant, June 13, 1866. The family afterward lived in Lompoc, Santa Barbara County and the son was sent to public schools of that little town, later continuing his studies in the city of Santa Barbara, where in 1887 he began the study of law in the office of Hon. W. C. Stratton, pioneer attorney of high standing and considerable prominence.

Having been admitted to the bar by the supreme court of California October 11,1891, Mr. Jackson immediately took up professional work in his hometown of Santa Barbara. Since his removal to Los Angeles in 1902 his influence has been felt in professional and political circles. June 1, 1905, he became associated with Theodore Martin and Lloyd W. Moultrie, conducting a general civil practice until his elevation to the bench in the superior court in Los Angeles, in which capacity he is now serving. He is a member of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, the Municipal League, the Chamber of Mines, and the Native Sons of the Golden West. He is also a member of the Gamut Club, Union League, in the latter of which he serves on the directorate, and the City Club, and in the line of his profession he is a member of the Los Angeles Bar Association.
