James Henry Jackson Globe Ariz.

My Great Grandfather, James Henry Jackson lived in Globe, with his wife Sarah Alverda and children, I would say around 1908 to 1918, but I am not for sure.

James Henry Shot and Killed a Judge Witcher in 1916 and went to prison. He shot the Judge on the courthouse steps!

There was a lot of Newspaper coverage on this incident! Our family has no knowledge of James Henry before he married Great Grandma Sarah and after he got out of Prison!

They were divorced when he was in prison. No one knew anything about him since accept for a letter my grandparents got from him in 1934. that was the only communication that anyone seems to know about.

If anyone has any information about James Henry, we would be very grateful, to have you share that with us.
