John C. Jackson was born in Laurel County, KY, February 28, 1852. His father, Jarves Jackson, a native of Madison County, KY, was born in 1787 and served in the war of 1812; he is now spoken of in Laurel County as the father of that county, he having settled there at an early date and was one of the largest land holders in the State, at one time owning upwards of 50,000 acres of land. He donated the lands and built the first county buildings, after the organization of Laurel County. He took an active interest in educational institutions, and in an early day was made sheriff of the county, serving for many years; he was also a member of the Legislature and State Senate, taking an active part in politics and being a very influential man in political affairs in his community. His wife was Frances, a daughter of John Jones, of Harlan County, KY. They were the parents of only one child, John C., the subject of this sketch. Jarves Jackson died in 1883, having survived his wife one year. John C. Jackson was reared in London, Laurel County, where he received his education, and has always resided, dealing largely in real estate. Upon the death of his father he fell heir to about 42,000 acres of fine coal lands, which of late years have claimed his attention. He has also devoted some attention to mercantile pursuits, and is a careful and accurate business man. February 19, 1880, he married Margaret, a daughter of Moses and Mary (Patton) Parsley, of Laurel County. They have three children, viz: Jarves, George H. and Mamie. Mr. Jackson is a member of the A. & A.M., and is a Democrat.
