12. Letter: Recollections of Rolland Jackson, 2003, South Bend, St. Joseph, IN. Rolland Jackson is the grandson of William Andrew Jackson and son of George Delford Jackson. He has talked to his father and "Aunt Twinkie" about the Jackson history. He heard stories about them all of his life. Rolland remained in Indiana until his death in 2012. Here are his recollections:

"William Andrew Jackson was hired out as a farm hand after his father was murdered and his mother remarried. His pay evidently went to his step-father, Abraham Sams. His employer treated him badly and underfed him. Hunger pains often occurred and he would steal sausages from a crock, knowing that one would not be missed, but after some time and several sausages later, they were missed. He was beaten. He ran away, went home where he was beaten again and sent back.

Through hard work and shrewdness, William eventually moved away from home, saved his money and bought a horse and wagon and had $100.00 in his pocket. Proud of his accomplishments he went home to show his mother, but all she had to say was that she wanted the $100.00. William put the money in his pocket and drove away. Later as he related the story he would pat his pocket and say he still had the $100.00.

William married Mary Hoadley, and they had a son. He developed a farm in Kosciusko County, Indiana, near where R.R. Donnelly and Sons is today. Mary and their son died of tuberculosis. William always had tears in his eyes when the child was mentioned. He then married his housekeeper, Cora Dell Shreve.

William once ordered a wagon to be built at a cost of $400.00, and after the wagon was partially built, he decided that he didn't want it after all. So when the wagon was done he said that he didn't have all the money, but that he could pay $100.00 and the rest on time. things were not done that way then, so the wagon maker said no, as William knew they would. Later he revealed that he had the money in his pocket all of the time. The wagon had a wider wheel base that was standard and never worked out satisfactorily for neighbor bought it. The road of that day had ruts that were too narrow for the wagon.

William retired at about 50 years of age. He invested in a bank in Warsaw, IN, and became moderately wealthy. However, he did lose a substantial amount in the crash 0 1929. Being bored with retirement he took odd jobs--greasing rails for street cars, selling ice for a small ice house at the corner of Lincoln Way and Cushing in South Bend, IN.

After he retired he spent winters in Biloxi, Miss, and Cora stayed home with the children until they were grown. Then she would go with him. William is reported to have hidden gold coins somewhere in his house when it became illegal to have gold, but so far nothing has been found. Cora made wonderful cherry pies, but in later years she either forgot or was just tired, and began leaving pits in the cherries. The family loved her and learned to cope with the pit problem.

William Jackson had twin sons, Jay Lloyd and Ray Floyd. They both became quite famous and highly educated men. I have copies of the stories of these two men."


William married Mary A. Hoadley on 18 Aug 1879 in Warsaw, Kosciusko, IN. (Mary A. Hoadley was born on 31 Dec 1857 in , St. Joseph, IN,9 14 15 died on 25 Feb 1886 in Etna Green, Kosciusko, IN 14 15 and was buried in Etna Green: Wooden Cemetery, Kosciusko, IN.)


William next married Cora Dell Shreve, daughter of George Washington Shreve Sr. and Mary Delina Dewey, on 3 Mar 1889 in Inwood, Marshall, IN.1 (Cora Dell Shreve was born in May 1867 in , Marshall, IN 1 4 8 10 16 17 18 and died on 23 Sep 1940 in South Bend, St. Joseph, IN.)
