William "Rock" Jackson
"Rock" Jackson was born in Virginia October 11, 1808. By 1836, he had migrated to Chambers County with
his wife Martha Foster Jackson (1810-1849). His primary business was the manufacture of tombstones and jugware.
His "blue marble" tombstones as he advertised, can be found in cemeteries throughout Chambers County and
adjacent counties. He died on August 22, 1892, and is buried in the adjoining cemetery at Macedonia Church
located at Marcoot. This portrait was made in 1883.
