Jackson, James B
Jackson, James B.
a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church South was born and reared in Clarke County, Ga. The date of his birth is not known to us, neither are we aware of the date of his conversion, though it appears, from the minutes of the Florida Conference, of which he was a member, that it must have been about the age of fourteen. He was honored by his associates in the ministry as a man of superior abilities, and held some of the best appointments in the Florida Conference. He was also professor in Andrew Female College for a number of years. At the time of his death, Feb. 18,1868, he was presiding elder of Jacksonville District. In all, he spent about thirty years in the ministry. See Minuetes (Ann. Conf. E. Ch. South, 3, 227.
