J. Hardwick Jackson, a life long and prominent resident of Augusta, died at a local infirmary last night at 7:15 o'clock in the 79th year of his age.

Mr. Jackson, who was prominently connected with the business and social life of this city, also had large family connections. He was the son of the late Brigadier General John K. Jackson, and the late Virginia Lucas Hardwick Jackson. His father had the distinction of being the youngest general in the Confederate army and was distinguished for his fighting at the battles of Chicamaugua and Lookout Mountain.

Mr. Jackson, who was born here in 1856, attended the Virginia Military Institute where he graduated with honors in civil engineering. He returned to Augusta where he went in business and at one time was Captain of the Oglethorpes, a volunteer military organization.

His interest in his fellow men gained him many friends and his death will bring sorrow to everyone whose pleasure it was to have known him.

Pallbearers will be Henry Hardwick, Robert G. Coggin, Eugene Vedery, Robert Rood, Jr., E. H. Hutchinson, Joseph Armstrong, Thomas Alexander and Frank Beane.
