  L. M. Jackson
 

          Brother L. M. Jackson was born on an Indiana farm, November 24, 1873, and departed this life January 1, 1944, at Bexley, Columbus, Ohio. He was educated in high school, Krutsinger Theological School, Indiana State University, and David Lipscomb College. He began preaching at the age of seventeen, and worked chiefly in Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky. His brilliant success led hundreds to be baptized, and his teaching impressed holy living on his converts. His mild disposition and pleasing social powers strongly appealed to the hearts of people and he was loved and respected by those who fully knew him.

          Brother Jackson’s prompt and faithful action when I lay at the point of death saved my file and he was a faithful friend to me till death. His visiting the people, advertising the meetings, and encouraging of my efforts greatly aided my work. A large number attended the funeral, Jan. 4. Burial in Greenlawn Cemetery, Columbus, O.

  Directions To The Grave of L.M. Jackson
 
L.M. Jackson and family are buried in the Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. Green Lawn is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Columbus. It lies just SW of downtown Columbus inside the I-270 Loop. Go to I-71 and take the Greenlawn Exit #105, and head west. The road will go directly into the cemetery. If the office is open, it is probably best to go in and ask for info to find the grave. However, if you want to try it yourself, then go into the cemetery, passing the office on your right. The first section you come to on your right after the office will have a little triangle entrance. Continue past this to the west side of the section and turn to the right. Go until you see the Civil War "military" section on the right. Stop the car and go into the section on the left. Jackson is buried under the group of trees near the road. See photos below to get the best idea of how to find it.
