Seeking information on Fred Snider JACKSON, d. Fairmont 30 Aug 1942
Posted by: Richard Clark (ID *****6950) Date: November 23, 2007 at 13:36:15

I have been asked to help someone re-connect to his family. I would very much appreciate if someone could check for a death announcement or obituary that might list family of Fred Snider JACKSON, born 1 May 1885 in Fairmont, Marion County, West Virginia and died there on 30 August 1942, and buried at Jones Cemetery.

Fred Snider JACKSON was the son of Joseph Sands JACKSON and his wife Fannie K. SNYDER. Fannie died in Fairmont on 10 April 1933 and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery. Her husband Joseph probably died between 1900 and 1910.

Fred married Niomi Bell CLARK about 1905, but appear to have divorced before the 1930 US Census. In that census, Nioma was listed as a widowed HAYES, living in Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co. Pennsylvania with several of her children. Fred was later registered for the WWII Draft in Fairmont, but died not long after that registration. Children of the couple were:

1 - Laura Frances JACKSON, b. 20 May 1906 in Fairmont, Marion Co., WV. Shown as a 24 year-old OTTEN widow with her mother in the 1930 US Census of Pittsburgh.

2 - Jay Edward JACKSON, b. 19 Aug 1907 in Fairmont, WV, died 13 July 1969 in Pittsburgh, PA. Married Dorothy EICHHOLTZ.

3 - Robert Clark JACKSON, b. 23 Aug 1909 in Fairmont, WV d. 30 June 1910 Fairmont, WV.

4 - Thelma JACKSON, b. abt 1911 in Fairmont, WV, listed as divorced from a HAGEN in the 1930 US Census of Pittsburgh and living with her mother and daughter Betty B. HAGEN.

5 - Harriett Amanda JACKSON, b. abt. 1913 in Washington Co. PA

6 - May JACKSON, b. abt. 1915 in Washington Co. PA

7 - Charles R. JACKSON, b. abt. 1917 in Washington Co. PA

8 - Kennet JACKSON, b. abt 1917 in Washington Co. PA, possibly twin sister of Charles R. JACKSON

9 - Glen S. JACKSON, b. abt. 1919 in Washington Co. PA, was adopted as Glen S. WRIGHT. This is the branch of the family that is trying to reconnect with their living relatives.

So far, I haven't had much luck in trying to trace out Fred's children. I was hoping that there might have been an obituary printed locally that might have mentioned the whereabouts of some of his children in 1942, particularly the possible married names of his daughters. I've placed some census transcripts below. Thank you!
