Obituary of Jackson Ferguson

March 21, 1913

Another Old Soldier Called.

Jackson Ferguson died Saturday morning at his home in Elk Garden after a brief illness of pneumonia, aged 67 years.

Mr. Ferguson was a member of Company H, 22nd Virginia Cavalry and was a brave soldier, always at his post where duty called him. Soon after the war he married Miss Eliza Ferguson and lived a quiet unassuming life.

He was a man who was most highly respected and esteemed by everybody who knew him.

He leaves one brother, H. D. Ferguson and one sister, Mrs. A. F. Hurt of Norton, Virginia.

The remains were laid to rest Sunday by the Masonic order of which he was a worthy member.

A number of Lebanon people attended the burial.

Whereas, it hath pleased Almighty God to take from us our beloved friend and brother, Jackson Ferguson.

Therefore be it resolved

1st. That we have in his death lost an exemplary brother and member of our fraternity, the county a noble and valuabe citizen, and his family a faithful and true member.

2nd. That these resolutions be spread upon the records of the Lodge, and a copy be published in the Lebanon News and a copy be furnished his family.

Lebanon Lodge 251, A. F. & A. M.
