George W. Jackson, born 28 July 1850 in Tennessee, was the son of William R. Jackson and Mahala Cooper. He was the 7th of ten siblings.

According to his death certificate, George was seventy years old at this time of his death on 16 January 1921.

He was a mechanic who was widowed. His residence was in Coalfield which is near the center of Tennessee.

The informant for George’s death certificate was Wiley Jackson also of Coalfield Tennessee.

Cause of death is hard to read. The secondary contributor to George’s death is Nephritis which is an inflammation of the kidneys and can lead to kidney failure.

Interesting to note, the undertaker was an L.G. Jackson.
