  • Notes 
    • Stephen's birth date and location is taken from his SAR application #1995 dated Jan 1891. The application itself appears correct except his assumption of Edward Jackson's parents.

      From Jackson Ledger: "Stephen Alonzo attended Liberty Academy, Smythe Co., VA. 1867-1868. Entered Emory & Henry College 1869. Went to Norwood High School October 1870 until Feb '71, when he returned to Emory & Henry & remained until the close of that session in June. Went to the University of VA Sept 28, 1871 and left the last of May 1874. Went to Abingdon, VA to take charge of stock of goods Dec. 20, 1874. Married Mary Cloyd Ernest Sept 5, 1876 and started for Philadelphia, PA that night accompanied by Misses Wampler, George Featherstone, Bettie Ernest & Wm. B. Ernest."

      From his biography on Kappa Sigma Fraternity Site: http://www.kappasigma.org/aboutHist.php. "Stephen Alonzo Jackson was born September 22, 1851. He was left motherless in his infancy and was raised by his grandmother." Also: "Stephen Alonzo Jackson is regarded as possibly the most important man in Kappa Sigma's history."
