  • Notes 
    • R. F. Jackson's family moved to Hillsboro, TX from Alabama on 1 February, 1883. In 1896, R. F. bought a ten-acre farm near Hillsboro on which he personally dug the water well.

      Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Jackson moved to Floyd County with their family in January, 1918. The family purchased a farm five miles east of Floydada on what is now Highway 70. The house still stands today. The Jacksons farmed for six years and then moved in to Floydada where R.F. served as custodian of the First National Bank for twenty-two years, retiring after he was 80.

      On Mr. Jackson's 92nd birthday, he credited his longevity to never drinking coffee, smoking or chewing tobacco, and following the Biblical truth "Honor thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land." [3]
