Notes:
Edward Jackson was the son of William Jackson and Mary Bennett. He was forty-niner in California. While he was serving in the Civil War he came to the aid of an African-American man being harassed by a group of men. Edward was struck with a stick that crushed his skull and nearly killed him. He was left blind in one eye, lost his sense of smell, and would sometimes lose consciousness. Edward came from a well known abolitionist and temperance family.
