1889 Bio.     Henry JACKSON, farmer, Shelby township, is the son of John JACKSON and Matilda JACKMAN.  His father was born in New Jersey in 1801; moved to Tennessee about 1807, with his father Thomas JACKSON, who was in the war with the Indians at the battle of the Horseshoe.
    They all came to Indiana in 1822.  His mother was the daughter of Robert JACKMAN, who was from Maryland and also came to Indiana in 1822.  She was born in Pennsylvania.  They were of Irish descent.
    The subject of this sketch was born on a farm in Jefferson county, in 1836; was educated in the common schools of the county.  He was married, in 1858, to Nancy GRIFFIN, daughter of James GRIFFIN, a native of Jefferson county; his people came from Kentucky.  Immediately after marriage he removed to Kansas, where he remained ten months, and then returned to Jefferson county, where he still resides.  He has six living children - Robert, James, Matilda, Henrietta, Grace and Harry.  He owns forty-six acres of well-improved land.
    He succeeded in giving to all his children a better education than he had.  One, Elmer, was educated for a teacher, but died at nineteen from a wound in his hand.  Four of his children are married, and all live in Shelby township; they are all farmers.
    Mr. JACKSON never sought office, and is a good, trusty, honorable citizen.
