On Sunday, April 18, 1920, Lincoln County lost one of its best known and most prominent citizens, when Mr. David Jackson, of Grimsby, passed away at the age of 69 years. The late David Jackson was born in the Township of South Grimsby, near the village of Fulton, in 1851, and resided on the old Jackson homestead, where he was born, until a few years ago, when he retired from farming and removed to Grimsby. He was a son of the late James Jackson. All through his life the late Mr. Jackson took a keen interest in municipal, provincial and federal politics, and although he was a strong Liberal, he was favorable to the Tariff Policy of the Conservative party. He served as Councillor and Reeve in the Township of South Grimsby for many years and sat in the County Council of the County of Lincoln for 8 years; first as Reeve of his own township; and later, when the county was divided into districts. he was elected to represent the Western District. A couple years ago, Mr. Jackson had a stroke of partial paralysis, and since that time has been steadily failing in health. The lately deceased gentleman was a very genial and companionable man and formed a large circle of acquaintances not only in his immediate locality, but in Hamilton and St. Catharines as well. He was fond of taking part in the discussion of public affairs and contributed many articles to the press on current subjects. Mr. Jackson was one of the early advocates of Good Roads, and campaigned his own home township for a system of stone roads several years ago. He lived to see the Good Roads System established all over the province...He leaves besides his wife, five sons, Vincent, professor of biology, Manitoba Agricultural College, Winnipeg; Herman, on the old homestead at Fulton; James of Grimsby; Walter, agricultural representative at Ottawa, and Andrew of Hamilton, and three daughters, Mrs. Elmer Ainsworth and Miss Ada, at Lethbridge, Alta., and Mrs. Harry Morris, of Shawinigan Falls, Que., and a brother, John, of Ochre River, Man. The funeral is taking place from his late residence this afternoon at 2 o'clock, to Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
