Obituary Donated by Terry McDaniel


From the Barbourville Mountain Advocate November 10, 1922


Uncle Godfrey Jackson, 97 years of age, of Long Branch, Knox County, died at his home Tuesday, Nov. 7th. Deceased was a veteran of the Civil War and had a host of friends over the county, being one of those who smile their way thru life with a good word for everyone. It is said of Mr. Jackson that he never was known to speak a harsh word, which is a record much to be desired.
Besides his wife, a large number of sons, daughters and grandchildren survive. The funeral was held Wednesday in the family graveyard.
