Jackson, Alonzo F. (? - MAR 1925)

Green Lake, Wis., March 20, 1925 -- Alonzo F. Jackson, well known locomotive engineer on the Sool Line, died at his home in Green Lake Thursday afternoon. His death followed a long illness.

Mr. Jackson was born in Wyoming Co., Penn., and in 1877 came to Green Lake, where he married Jennie Owen. He was employed as engineer by the Wis. Central and Soo Line railroads continuously from 1883 to 1921, when he retired.

For some twenty years Mr. Jackson made his home at Abbotsford, Wis., but in 1922 came to Green Lake and purchased a home. He was a most optimistic and genial man, one interested in all good things for Green Lake and proved an inspiration to those who knew him.

He leaves his wife, two sons, Elmer of Green Lake and Attorney Frank Jackson of Colby, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Parker of Downey, Cal. The funeral was held at the residence at 11 o'clock Saturday. The services were conducted by Rev. E. C. Hise and the Green Lake Masonic Lodge.
