There is a large cemetery just back of the one on the church grounds, which has been called a slave cemetery. It is a known fact, several of the older members have said that they remember at least three different colored members being buried there. One was Sam Jackson who had indeed been slave, belonging to Samuel Jackson, Sam’s wife Easter Jackson, who had also been a slave belonging to James Jackson. Another young colored woman named Bessie Jackson died about 1900 and was buried there - she may have been the last colored person buried at Jackson Grove.
A thorough search of this cemetery revealed only two with any lettering which could be read. They are:
- - - -
- - 69
There must have been about fifty graves in this section, neglect has made it difficult to determine just how many.

They were parents of a daughter, Elizabeth Copeland Jackson, “Miss Bessie.” Francis is buried at New Prospect Baptist Church cemetery. James D. Jackson was one of the trustees at the time the deed to the churchgrounds was executed in 1886 and served in that capacity until his death in 1923, being a lifetime member and benefactor of Jackson Grove.

51. JAMES JACKSON, born 1800, the son of Captain Thomas Jackson of the Revolutionary War, and his wife Sarah Carson. James and his brother Robert inherited his father’s old home which was the “Bessie Jackson” house for James and what is now the Fairview Farm homeplace for Robert. James’ descendants lived at his old home until 1955, when the last surviving local member sold it. It has been remodeled and is now a beautiful home, but the interior old log structure is kept. James Jackson was a lifetime member of Jackson Grove, and a leading benefactor. He died at the beginning of the Civil War, and his family were among those helping soldiers to return to their homes at the close of that war. One young man who had no means of returning to his home except to walk, stopped by the Jackson home; exhausted, asking for a drink of water and permission to rest a bit. He was given food, his clothing washed and he was allowed to rest for as long as he wished. He returned sometime later, and married one of their daughters - and later became an ordained Methodist minister.
52. SAMUEL J. COLLINS, son of Thomas G. Collins and his wife, Martha Ella Jackson. Samuel was a student at Clemson College when he became ill with some ailment, probably appendicitis, and died.
53. THOMAS G. COLLINS, son of James A. Collins and his wife Mary Caroline Bishop. He married 3 March 1878 Martha Ella Jackson. Martha Ella had lost both her parents during the Civil War years, and her grandfather had willed to her all his lands in Polk County, NC, including his mills. After his death, Thomas G. Collins sold the property in settling the estates. After a postoffice was established, the mill became known as Collinsville.
54. ELLA M.J. COLLINS, her name a little out of order on the stone at Jackson Grove, was Martha Ella Jackson who married Thomas G. Collins. She was the daughter of Thomas Robert Jackson and Martha Jane Goudelock. Her mother died in 1862, her father in 1863, so she lived with her grandparents who left their home and their lands in Polk County, NC to her.
53. MARTHA JANE E. GOUDELOCK, wife of T. R. Jackson, the daughter of John Wilkins Goudelock and his wife Sara Emeline Corry. She was married 24 November 1857 to Thomas Robert Jackson the son of Samuel and Martha Patsy Collins Jackson. T.R. Jackson was born 25 February 1834 and died 2 August 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg, and was buried there. He was a Private in the 1st Reg’t Cavalry, SCV, as was his brother Joseph Alexander Jackson who was born 19 Feb. 1831 and was captured at Gettysburg and died in the Yankee prison at Point Lookout, Maryland 15 April 1864. Alexander was not married.
56. CARRIE M. LANDRUM. She was Millicent Caroline Goudelock, daughter of John Wilkins Goudelock and his wife Sara Emeline Corry, attended Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, NC, and wrote letters to her parents telling of her experiences and accomplishments at school in a small and absolutely perfect handwriting. She addressed them to: “Mr. John Goudelock, Union District, S.C.” She married, first, 7 December 1854, James Madison Jackson. They made their home on his father’s lands on South Pacolet River near Campobello, S.C., the place now known as Ingleside, named by Mrs. Carrie Jackson. After the death of her husband, at the close of the Civil War, Mrs. Jackson lived on at their home with their five children. In 17 August 1870 she married a second husband, Dr. J.B. O. Landrum. They were the parents of three children, and made their home at Ingleside farm, the house having been remodeled somewhat and is now a National Historic Registry site.
57. JAMES MADISON JACKSON. The only Confederate veteran buried at Jackson Grove. The eldest son of Samuel and Martha Patsy Collins Jackson, was born in 1828, attended the New Prospect Academy, and went on a trip to California in the gold rush of 1849, when age 21. His brother Alexander also went along, and they both returned home with gold nuggets and either brought gold watches back with them, or had them made after their return home. These watches were the lure for bushwhackers during the Civil War, but were not taken by the rogues. According to a sketch of the Jackson family written by a member, “ . . . . When the War Between the States was declared, he (J.M. Jackson) was among the first volunteers and served the whole time of four years of the war . . . he came home broken in health . . . after the war Carpetbaggers came to his home and took some hard-to-get blacksmith tools, and destroyed much of his cornfield.” He shot one of them when confronted by four at once, and he was advised by friends go away for a time. He went to Texas, to the Brazos River where he would buy land and send for his family. Three weeks before his wife and children arrived by wagon train, he had died of fever. His wife, Millicent Goudelock Jackson, had his body exhumed, and transported to Galveston, Texas, where they boarded ship and traveled by water around to Charleston, SC. Then, the long and arduous trip by wagon from Charleston to the family cemetery at Jackson Grove. When Milllicent returned, she remained for a while with her father and mother-on-law, and then back to her own home on South Pacolet. When she died, fifty three years later, her children brought her back to Jackson Grove to rest beside her first husband, James Madison Jackson.
58. Unmarked, but is most likely BEN ROBERTSON, son of Thomas Robertson. He was killed while on a hunting trip about 1891, according to Mr. Daniel Weaver of Greens Creek, a friend and neighbor of our family. He said that his mother, Mrs. Mollie Robertson Weaver always went to see that her brother Ben Robertson’s grave was cared for, and that she picked up pretty rocks to put around his grave. This grave had, until just a few years back, a ring of small white rocks all around - so we believe this to be the grave of Ben Robertson.
59. Wife of Ben Robertson, probably named Hattie, since there was a Hattie Robertson listed as a member of Jackson Grove.
60. BEN COCHRAN, born 1893, died 1966, the son of Betty Case and Jonas Cochran. Born in Green River Cove in Polk County NC.
61. BETTY CASE COCHRAN, born 1857, died 1941. She was born in Green River Cove, Polk County, NC and married William James Cochran who was born in Green River Cove in 1847, died 1940s.
62. Unmarked, unknown.
63. Son of Bessie C. and Elijah T. Jackson.
64. Daughter of Bessie and Elijah T. Jackson.
65. SUSANNAH JACKSON, wife of John C. Jackson, the oldest marked stone at Jackson Grove, 1859. She was Susannah Whitesides, married John Jackson in 1814. Their home was what is now the Ellis Slater home, and John inherited the land from his father which is the Jackson Grove property.
66. JOHN C. JACKSON, son of Captain Thomas Jackson and his wife Sarah Carson, married Susannah Whitesides; a farmer, and had one son, Marsden Perry Jackson. John C. Jackson was born the earliest of anyone buried at Jackson Grove -- 1791.
67. MARSDEN PERRY JACKSON, had probably been married before, since he deeded all his lands to his wife Emily J.R. Jackson just a few years before she made the deed to Jackson Grove church for the church property and the cemetery. They traded a small acreage to Mr. Carpenter of Landrum for town property, on which they built a hotel and later the Spartan Academy. The farm which they traded to Mr. Carpenter was known until recent years as “the Carpenter place.” The inventory of Emily’s estate in 1911, listed “1 piano, value $125.” Since she made the deed to the church, she and Marsden are credited with largely building the building, we think we would probably be correct in giving her the credit for buying the small pump organ which is still in good working order. It was patented in 1886, and has been in the church since anyone can remember.
68. MARTHA PATSY COLLINS JACKSON, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Fleming Collins, married 16 Jan 1824 SAMUEL JACKSON (see Samuel Jackson, below).
69. SAMUEL JACKSON, son of Thomas Jackson and his wife Sarah Carson. Had three sons who served in the Confederate States Army during the war between the states, their only children. During particularly the last part of the Civil War, when he was in the seventies and his sons and most of the rest of the young men were gone to war, he was frequently molested by roving bands of robbers and deserters. On one occasion he was hung up by them to his back porch banister with the demand that he would reveal “where the gold was.” He did not. The rope was cut just short of the time he would have strangled. This experience caused him much trouble for the rest of his life. The gold watches, and similar valuables, were hidden in the ample bosom of his wife, Martha Patsy. Their loyal slaves had also helped secrete other valuables, and they watched diligently for the return of the robbers.
70. SARAH "SALLIE" JONES, wife of William M. Shehan. Daughter of John Patton Jones & Evaline Stewart.

He served in tranches in France, and contracted inflammation of the lungs which was never fully well. Went to NC University following the war to study Agriculture, but became too ill to continue, and died in Army hospital.
