Curtis Jackson

Subscribed and sworn to before the undersigned clerk of the Probate Court of Hamilton County, Indiana, on this 15th Dec. AD 1846.

Given under my hand and seal of said Court the date above written.

F. G. Burns, Clerk
My Grandfather Jackson did so many fun things, he let me help when he gathered honey from the bee hives, and this had to be an act of love on his part. He allowed me to help him sort apples that he used to make cider. I could help him count out sweet potato slips, as he sold these to other farmers in the area. He would always be able to find a "copper or two," which is what he called pennies, for me. After being cautioned not to say anything to my Grandmother, he would walk with me to Royal Hunter's store and we would spend a lot of time deciding just exactly how to spend those pennies on candy. Those BB-Bat all day suckers, or packages of Kits were hard decisions to make.

When W. Caleb Jackson was a young man, he was rabbit hunting and the gun accidentally went off and his arm was so severely damaged that it had to be removed. I was always amazed at what he could do with one hand. He rolled his own cigarettes. Would hold the small white wrapping paper in one hand, have the tobacco sack in his mouth and gently shake the tobacco into the paper (without dropping any) and then slowly roll the paper around the tobacco with one hand, lick the edge of paper and seal it. He could tie a neat bow on his shoe strings. In other words, not much my Grandpa could not do. He was my "hero." When he died in 1959, my second child was just a baby and I mourned that my children would grow up without him in their lives.
