In Memory of Claud W. Jackson
Claud JACKSON, son of Mr and Mrs Lee JACKSON, died December 25, 1904, aged 20 years and 10 months. By his death God has taken from us one of the brightest jewels of that happy home. Weep not, mother and father, for your darling has gone, but we hope to meet him in that happy home above where sorrow and pain never come.
Dear Claude, he has left us,
And our loss we deeply feel,
But Ôtis God bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal
Precious darling he has left us---
Left us, yes, forever more,
But we hope to meet our darling,
On that bright and happy shore.
Lonely the house and sad the house,
Since our dear one has gone,
But oh! a brighter home than ours
In heaven is now is own.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
Through all pain at times a smile,
A smile of heavenly birth,
And when the angels called him home,
He smiled farewell to earth..
Tis hard to break the tender chord
When lore has found the heart
Tis hard, tis hard, to speak the words,
We must forever part.
Farewell dear, but not forever,
There will be a glorious dawn,
We shall meet to part no never
On that resurrection morn
(last verse not readable)

A prominent Young Man of Lamasco Died Last Sunday of Typhoid Fever

The death last Sunday of young Judson Jackson, of Lamasco, was quite a shock to his many friends.

He had only been ill two weeks with typhoid fever. He was about twenty-four years old and was one of the best young men in that section of Lyon county and was a son of J.M. Jackson, a prominent farmer and highly respected citizen.

His remains were laid to rest Monday afternoon in the Parker grave yard near Lamasco in the presence of a large crowd of friends and relatives.
Contributed God is not respect of person. He claims the young and strong as well as the old. Sunday night at twelve o'clock at his father's home at Lamasco surrounded by loved ones, Mr Judson Jackson died of typhoid fever.

Judson as every one called him, was a bright happy promising young man of twenty-four years of that sunny disposition that wins so many loved ones and friends. Besides father, mother, sister and brothers, an aged grandmother and other relatives he leaves a host mourning friends. His oldest brother, who lives in Little Rock, Ark, was summoned to his bedside but death waits for no man. Before he reached home his dear brother was buried.

The burial took place Monday afternoon at the Parker burying ground near Lamasco in the presence of a large crowd. Dear mourning ones let this tie bind you nearer to Heaven where the departed one waits for you, for he can not come back, but you can go to him. May God bless and comfort the bereaved family is the prayers of the writer. Caldwell Co Aug 1904

Mrs. C. W. Jackson Answers Death's Call
Month's Illness Following stroke Of Paralysis Fatal To Splendid Lady
Daughter Of Late William Wharton And One Of County's Most Noble Women
Mrs. Sudie Wharton Jackson, beloved and devoted wife of Mr. Charles W. Jackson, peacefully passed away at the Jackson home on East Main street last Thursday morning at ten minutes past nine o'clock.
A month before, lacking a day, Mrs. Jackson suffered a paralytic stroke. Complications followed and perhaps another stroke that had made her recovery hopeless for three weeks, and the end had been looked for by the family and devoted friends for some days before.
Mrs. Jackson was the daughter of the late William Wharton, one of the leading citizens of all Western Kentucky, and in the full meaning of the term she was truly one of Trigg county's most noble Christian characters.
Born in Trigg county, sixty nine years ago within the next three weeks, Mrs. Jackson spent her girlhood and young womanhood in the Wharton home five miles north of Cadiz.
Her first marriage was to the late Thomas Wilson. Mr. Wilson lived only a few years, and thirty four years ago she was married a second time to Mr. Jackson, a resident of the New Bethel section and one of Lyon county's most successful farmers. For twenty-eight years she resided in Lyon county, and six years ago the family moved to Cadiz, where they have since lived.
The husband and one daughter Mrs. Porter Piercy, survive her. Mrs. Ben T. White and W. Rice Jackson are step-daughter and step-son, and Mrs. C. A. Chappell is also a step-daughter. The surviving sisters are Mrs. Eliza Grace and Miss Mildred Wharton, of this county. A brother, George T. Wharton, resides at Ordway, Colorado.
In religion Mrs. Jackson was a Baptist. She united with the church in early life and had spent her days in real devotion to her profession and in following the teaching laid down for the true Christian.
Few women ever filled their mission in life with a truer conception of what it should have been than Mrs. Jackson. She was the devoted daughter to the aged father in the declining years and looking to the needs, anticipated his every want and with willing hands and a sympathetic heart contributed her all that he might be happy.
As the consecrated wife and mother, she met every responsibility and no duty of hers ever went unfulfilled.
Going into two homes to take the place of mothers who had gone, she not only did her whole duty, but her nature was so sympathetic, her devotion so genuine, her love so pure, that those who had been bereft found in her another mother to take the place of the ones who had been taken. They loved her as they loved their own mothers; she was as devoted to them as if they had been her own offspring.
Truly it can be said that in every obligation - as daughter, wife, mother, neighbor, friend, Christian - she never faltered. Hers had been a life of service, and in the service rendered she, too, was made happy in making others happy. Those who knew her best, whether as the mother of the home or the neighbor and friend living near, appreciated her most, and the loving devotion of all in life and health, their tender watch care in the closing hours, and the tear drops when death had come in testimony undisputed that she had not spent her life in vain, and that the reward for duty done and service wrought is hers now to enjoy throughout all eternity and into the endless ages.
Following a brief funeral service held at the family home in Cadiz, the bereaved family, with a number of devoted friends, accompanied the remains to Lyon county last Friday and in the afternoon final services were held at New Bethel church, conducted by her pastor, Rev. W. E. Mitchell, and the remains afterward consigned to their last resting place in the family lost in the cemetery.
