Charles I am so glad you covered this! Rev.Jackson is truly a pillar of the community. Is he still living?
Charles Apostolik August 08, 2011 at 11:25 PM
Yes, Meg. He was very much present at the dedication (see photo), and I understand he's still actively involved in his upholstery business as well.

I'll have to plead ignorance. (Well, I guess I don't HAVE to, since that's self-evident.) And Google wasn't much help. I just met the Bascoe Jackson in the photos on Saturday, and didn't hear any references to his being a Jr.
