  • Everett Elisha (1915-1968) married May Beatrice Michael

Hall Jackson and Flora moved to Indiana from Tennessee shortly after their marriage in 1904. He was about 20 years older than his new bride and had grown children just slightly younger than Martha. Several of the children from his first marriage moved to Indiana as well.

During the early years of their marriage Hall and Flora lived in Muncie and Progress in Delaware County, Indiana. Later they moved to Knightstown, Henry County, Indiana, and their children graduated from high school there.

While in Delaware County, Hall worked at the Kitselman Wire Mill, but when they moved to Henry County, some of his children remember him making home-made candies, apparently to sell. Flora took in washing and did housework for others to help support the family and continued doing such work to support herself after Hall’s death. Hall and Flora raised their children in a strict Baptist home, but Hall was also said to be a drinker. Flora did not remarry until many years after Hall’s death. She and her second husband lived in Indianapolis until Ira’s death just a couple of years before Flora’s. Ira was buried in Vincennes with his first wife and Flora is buried with Hall in Knightstown where they spent most of their years together.

Lenora May Brunt

LENORA MAY BRUNT
b. 3 August 1875, Summitville, Madison County, Indiana, to
William Davis and Adaline A. (Reynolds) Brunt
d. 13 October 1963, Brush, Morgan County, Colorado

d. 15 April 1939, Denver, Denver County, Colorado

Children with Thomas Sharp Weaver:

  • Veryl Bell (1897-1978) married [—?—] Cameran
  • Jackson Fay (1899-1963)
  • Hallie May (1902-1988) married [—?—] McMichael

Lenora lived in Summitville, Boone Township, and Anderson in Madison County, Indiana. Starting about age ten, she played the piano for the hymn sings as her father traveled from church to church preaching at revival meetings and baptizing converts.

According to her granddaughter, she played in an almost jazzy manner with nothing sad or somber but in a joyful manner. She confided in later years that part of the joy in accompanying her father was that in most churches, she was allowed to choose a piece of clothing for herself or a sibling from that church’s Poor Barrel. She like this because the clothes were “new” to her schoolmates, thus eliminating the teasing, “You’re wearing Mary’s old dress.”
