Col. Jackson was born August 11, 1831, and died at Fairland, Indiana, February 9, 1912. In the civil war he was a captain in the 34th Ind. Inf., lieutenant colonel and colonel of the 118th Ind. Inf., and colonel of the 9th Ind. Cav. In 1870 he moved to Geuda Springs; and two years later to Winfield, which he made his home until two years ago. He then went to the home of his son at Fairland. His wife died there several years ago, and was buried in Union cemetery.

The funeral of Col. G. W. Jackson, formerly of this city, took place from Kyger's undertaking rooms Sunday afternoon, under the direction of Siverd Post, Grand Army of the Republic. Those of his kinfolk present were his son, A. B. Jackson, of Fairland, Indiana, and his son-in-law, James Ford, of Syracuse, Kansas.
