The following biographical information appeared in the LDS Ancestral File Genealogy of the John Jackson Family ( AFN: 1J6J-705), 1975:
Thomas Langdale Jackson (1849-1925) was born in Dearborn County., Indiana, August 26, 1849, and passed from this life, June 1, 1925. At the age of 21 years, December 25, 1870, he was married to Mary Ellen Fagley (b.1870) of the same county and state, who survives him.

Three sons resulted from this union: Erastus Harley, died with cholera, age one year in 1874; Carl Reuben 1876-1884 died with tonsillitis OR diptheria and was sick only five days when eight years old; and Ralph M. born 1880 remains to comfort the bereaved wife and mother.

This father was a man of strong home ties, and his happiest moments were in his home with his immediate family. To those who knew him best, his life was a beautiful example of the doctrine “doing unto others as you wish to be done by.” He loved with the deepest affection and emotions and to those whom he loved and who loved him best, an esteemed and amicable friend will be missed.

He was a builder by profession and was proficient in most of the arts pertaining to the carpenters and builders profession, and many examples of his work now stand in this vicinity and elsewhere. Probably the most remarkable and interesting of his works was in his last home at Glendora, CA. which he made almost in its entirety with his own hands. Beginning with vacant lots, and after he was seventy-two years of age, being then in failing health, he not only built one home there complete, including adornments, but he built two, side by side which now stand as monuments to his enterprise and handicraft.

His life was filled with creditable service, most of the time busy making or doing something and as a fitting conclusion, may it not be said, "Well done, good and faithful servant?" and although his dearest friends are and will be grief stricken in his absence, there should be some consolation in this belief that his soul is peacefully at rest and that his broken body no longer suffers.

Mr. Jackson was born in Miller Township, being the son of Ruben Christopher Jackson (1810-1887) and Isabelle Langdale Jackson (1816-?). He left Dearborn County and went west to California abt 1889 where he has since resided. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ellen Fagley Jackson and son, Ralph M. Jackson (b.1880), one brother John Harrison Jackson (b.1854) of Miller Township and one sister, Mrs. Ruth Jackson Smith (b.1859) of Sheldon, IL.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM CARL HARLEY MANKIN - (Carl Harley Mankin correspondence dated January 24, 2000 - Merrie Rue Smith)

Carl's Mother (Helen Jackson) and grandmother (Clara Bertha Luehm Jackson) wrote in their copy of Alta Mae Jackson's genealogy the following:

Attached to obituary - ...and one granddaughter, Helen Marie Jackson.

Also, the following:

Thomas and Mary Ellen Jackson began their married life 1870 in the log house on Leapers Creek just west of the Reuben Jackson home later called "The Valley Hill Farm." Tommy and his wife lived there only a few years because a younger brother, Ralph and Katharine Jackson were married in 1877 and set up housekeeping in the same log house. The big stone chimney, pantry and well were still there when we were kids, but all was wiped out by the big Texas Pipe Lines when they went thru Dad's farm the second time in 1964.2

     Helen was born on 6 April 1911 in Fullerton, Orange County, California, USA.3 Helen married Otto Earl Mankin.3 Helen married Fred Clifton Sweatt on 9 October 1953.3 She died on 5 May 1984 in Hesperia, San Bernardino County, California, USA, at age 73 Summer of 1962 by Nora Elizabeth Bonham Jackson

Helen Jackson Sweatt (b.1911) was the daughter of Ralph (1880-1955) and Clara Jackson (1882-1982) and the granddaughter of Thomas (1849-1925) and Ella Fagley Jackson (1850-1927) of Lawrenceburg, Dearborn Co., IN. Helen and her husband, Clifford Sweatt, and son, Carl, of LaHabra, CA have been the house guests of the late Clyde Jackson (1879-1941) of Harrison, Hamilton Co., OH and Floyd Jackson (1881-1958) of Bright, Dearborn Co., IN. Helen’s father, Ralph Jackson, moved to California when he was eight years old, about 1889, and his family spent almost their entire life at LaHabra.

The Indiana and Ohio cousins have vied with each other to make this visit a happy one. On Saturday night, the entire family except Jane Ellen Radcliff (b.1945), gathered at the beautiful home of Lowell (b.1923) and Juanita Sefton Jackson (b.1925) and family at Venice, OH. Almost the entire evening was spent in showing slides of pictures taken by the various Jacksons on their vacations and at home. Needless to say, the most interesting were the movies shown by the California cousins of their beloved state. After all the home made ice cream and cake they could eat with coffee, it was 1:30 before the last guest departed.

Sunday was spent with 47 cousins at the home of Floyd (b. 1912) and Edna Jackson Radcliff (b.1915) on Dry Fork Road at the old Radcliff home with its big shade trees and the big house with its antique furnishings. Again, in the evening, Alvin Jackson (b.1909), showed views of the Western E.S.A., Canada, and Alaska in which he and his family had taken on their 1961 trip.

Now as vacation time was nearing its end, they were back to the birth place of the generations of Jacksons on Salt Fork where Ruby Jackson Hart (b.1914) lives with her husband Keith (b.1913) and lovely daughters, Kay (b. 1942) and Carolee (1945).

The young folks went to the swimming pool at Harrison, Hamilton Co., OH in the afternoon and the evening again found us enjoying more movie scenes of their home state of California.

It was a disappointment on Saturday when Stanley Jackson (b.1909) took them along the Ohio River and through Cincinnati, OH., that it rained and the Sweatts could not take pictures. For the most part, the weather was nice. The Sweatts left on Tuesday after a three week vacation with relatives in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Indiana, and Ohio. From the time they arrived on Friday evening in time for six o’clock dinner at the home of Mike and Alta Mae Jackson Hart (b.1911), and Saturday night with Stanley and Vera Blasdel Jackson (b.1913), the 52 cousins had spent most of the time enjoying every moment possible together and every one was sorry the time had been so short.
