General James Jackson


General James Jackson was born September 21, 1757,
at Devonshire, England,
the son of James and
Mary(Weber) Jackson. At age fifteen, he immigrated to Georgia.
He studied law under James Wereat and George Walton.
He was active in all movements to establish independence and
liberty for the colonies. His six years of military service
consisted of the unsuccessful defense of Savannah (1778),
Battle of Cowpens (1780 and the Recovery of Augusta (1781.)
General Wayne ordered him as Lt. Colonel to repossess
Savannah (July 1782.)
The Georgia Legislature rewarded his services by giving
him a house in Savannah.
General Jackson was very prominent in political life in
Georgia from 1784 until his death in 1806.
He served as a member of the Legislature, Governor of Georgia
and a member of the Unites States Senate.
General Jackson led a campaign for the election of members
of the Legislature who would rescind and publicly burn
the records of the Yazoo Act.
He was married in 1785 to Mary Charlotte Young, daughter
of a Revolutionary War soldier, by whom he had four sons
who later became influential citizens in the public life of
Georgia. While serving in the Senate, he died in Washington
in 1806. He was buried in Arlington cemetery.
