Query posted November 12, 2003
The name listed in the Evergreen Cemetery as JOHN R. JOHNSON is incorrect.
It should read JOHN R. JACKSON. Check the stone. John R. Jackson was a former
Miss. state senator, father of Lester Harmon by John's first wife (name
unknown); John's 2nd wife was Martha "Mattie" Bryant McCaslin Bryant (b. in Fayette
Co. TN). I am Mattie B. Jackson grand nephew. I spent several summers in
N. Carrollton in the late 1940''s at Aunt Mattie's home. I have pictures of
her at this house. Please correct this error in the records.
Thank you very much, Hohjr.
