187 (Research):
BIRTH

There is a discrepancy in Jennie's dob as listed in the obituary and on the burial permit vs the SSDI and Census. Jennie was on the 1885 Minnesota State Census with her parents, age 1. This would establish her year of birth as 1884. The date is confirmed on the 1900 census and on the SSDI. It is possible that the person giving the information for the obituary/burial certificate confused her birth year with that of her sister, Daisy, who was born in 1886. The death certificate also has this incorrect dob, per T. VanBuskirk. The original SS-5 application shows her dob as 1884; this form was most certainly completed by Jenny herself, making it an original and primary source for her date of birth.



SURVIVORS LISTED IN OBIT
Jennie's obit lists cousin VIOLET PINXTON of Longview WA
This is most likely violet Myrick, granddaughter of Mary Myrick who was Jenny's maternal aunt. Violet is on the 1910 Minneapolis census.

need to check WC resources for her. She may be the wife of HC Carter mentioned in the Tribune article about Dearfield 5 Jan 1961.

It appears that Ethel was a source for the 1988 article in the Colorado Heritage (Colorado Historical Soceity) by Karen Waddell. We need to contact Ms. Waddell.

[excerpts]

Rutted Dearfield Main St. Still Has a Few Buildings
by Jim Hitch

"...A direct descendant of the town's founder still lives at Dearfield - some of the time. She is his niece, Jennie S. Jackson."

"Miss Jackson came into Greeley a short time ago after getting sick. She has been staying with Rev. H.C. Carter at the Chruch of God in Christ, 600 4th Ave.
However Miss Jackson plans to return to her home in Dearfield next spring, 'when it warms up.' "

" 'My posterity's out there,' the 76 year old little Negro woman points out proudly."

...[quoting Ted Noller, the resident of Dearfield] " 'When the weather's nice she (Jennie Jackson) walks all the way to the post office nearly every day.' The post office is located at the Masters Service station nearly three-quarters of a mile from Dearfield."

Miss Jackson, when living at her Dearfield home, buys her groceries from Noller, who also draws trade from farmers and ranchers in the area."

"She lives on welfare now and she complains about the cost of living. 'I bought a little bottle of pills a few days ago and it cost $1.83. Darned near ruined two dollars.' "

"Miss Jackson is apparently well traveled. 'I've had my feet and legs in both the Pacific and Atlantic. I've got relatives all over this country and I've been to see most of them.' she said proudly."

"She puts most of the blame on today's integration troubles on both white and colored people. 'Nobody wants to associate with everybody. White people have people they don't want to associate with and so do we.' "

"Miss Jackson has inherited some of the Dearfield acreage through her uncle's estate. Most of the buildings stand on her land."

"Dearfield may completely vanish from the face of the earth in the not too distant future. The old lodge hall, a wood and cement structure, is rapidly deteriorating.
'I'm gonna tear it down before it falls down,' Miss Jackson relates. 'There's some good two-by-fours in it. I'll keep them.' "

"Miss Jackson admitted she was once married but said no more about it. Jackson is her maiden name. She likes to talk about her relatives, especially her father George Washington Carter."

"She's already talking about her next trip - to California and a visit with more relatives."

191 Linn Grove Cemetery
Block 30
Lot 8
Space 07

Burial permit no 32, Jennie S. Jackson, 1973. Repository: Centennial Park Library, Greeley, CO:
This permit shows burial at Linn Grove: Lot 12, Block B, grave 15. This location is different from the one that currently has her grave marker on it: Lot 8, Block 30, space 7. Cemetery records and the gravestone confirm that Jennie is buried in Lot 8. I have visited the grave site and have personally verified that this is the location of the grave. LP


Jennie does not have a permanent gravestone. Her grave is marked by a small cement slab which has had basic information impressed. This sort of headstone is usually placed until a more permanent stone can be set, it is also used for pauper burials.
