The JACKSON Family
of Fredonia, Arizona and Kanab, Utah

The patriarch of this family is Jesse Taylor JACKSON. He was born on the Pennsylvania frontier in 1822. About 1830, his family migrated to Ohio. Jesse's parents moved onto land in South Bloomfield Township, Knox County, now Morrow County, Ohio. By the late 1840's, Jesse and his brother, Robert Andrew  and his family, and their mother, Abigail, were next found in Iowa. Here, Jesse Taylor met and married Fanny ELMER in 1846 in Mahaska County, Iowa. Her family had been living in Hancock County, Illinois and were LDS. They were moving with the exodus from Nauvoo, Illinois and were on their way to western lands with their prophet, Brigham Young. Jesse Taylor joined the LDS Church and moved with them. By 1850, he and Fanny were living in El Dorado County, California. By 1860, they were in Nephi, Juab County, Utah. In between times they had helped to settle San Bernardino County in California but were called back to Utah when the US government threatened the Mormon lands. By 1900 Jesse and his youngest son, Robert Alexander, were ranchers in Fredonia, Arizona, a town on the Utah border. Robert's son, Lorum Elmer continued with the ranching tradition but settled in Kanab, Utah.
